Six Sentence Sunday – 12/4/11

Today is #sixsunday where writers share six sentences from their work. I’ll share a snippet from my time-travel romance WIP. I currently have this out to Beta readers for feedback and hope to be in a position to query for agents in the new year. Here’s my working query hook for it: Isabelle Rochon has met the man of her dreams. There’s only one problem: he lives in a different century. 

This is in the first chapter and she’s at a reenactment ball, but everyone’s starting to be a little too into it. She’s just met the hero who is asking for the honor of an introduction:

May I have the honor? Really? Isabelle was starting to like the whole reenactment thing, but this seemed a tad over the top. So he was handsome. Well, okay, drool-worthy. Maybe she would cut him some slack on the over-acting bit then.

She ends up nicknaming him Lord Drool-Worthy shortly after this, which I’m seriously thinking of making the title…

Have a great Sunday!

  1. It would be kind nice if men still talked like that, huh? Instead we’re too likely to get something like: “Hey, baby.” *totally obvious butt check-out* “Can I get yo number?”

    Ah, the good old days… LOL
