My friend, Debra Kristi, recently posted a blog about a new meme making the rounds. It’s called “Look” and the rules state that I do a search for the word in my current work-in-progress and paste the surrounding paragraphs. Afterwards, I tag others and the game is afoot.
I do have a current work in progress, but it’s not at the sharing stage. So I’m going to post from my previous story, “The Billionaire’s Socialite Bride“:
If Carter knew what was going on, he had no doubt the man would understand. He hadn’t seen the look on Marcus’ mother’s face when she’d come home that evening, shell shocked and ashamed. He didn’t have to stare at the bruises on her shoulders or the torn sleeve of her maid’s uniform and choke on impotent rage. And Carter had never stood in silent indignation and listened as a man told him he would never take his mother’s word over that of a man from a respectable society family.
If Carter knew…
But Marcus didn’t intend to apprise him or anyone else of the situation. All Carter needed to know was Marcus intended to have that hotel, no matter the price.
I want to thank Debra for tagging me and I’m going to pay it forward. I also blog with a group of Virginia writers of romantic fiction. You may have heard of us; we’re the Wise Wenches. You can find the link to our blog here or in my blog’s header. So I’m tagging my fellow Wenches: Nara Malone, Sofie Couch, Tina Glasneck, Nancy Naigle, Denise Golinowski, Alexa Day, Elvy Howard & Leah St. James.
This should be fun, but if you don’t want to participate it’s okay. You can jump on the meme the next time it rolls through your neighborhood.
