Six of the Best – The Princess Peeks
Welcome back to Six of the Best on Sundays! In this hop, authors are sharing six of their best paragraphs from a published work or a work in progress. Today, I’m sharing six of the best from my fractured fairy tale The Princess and the Huntsman. You can find out more about this book on my website here, including an extended excerpt.
But for today, I’ll just preface this segment by saying that Princess Brandywyn is a bit spoiled but bright and curious. Her maids have found something pretty fascinating, and she should resist temptation but…
“Hmm,” Brandywyn said, debating whether to be angry or join them in their conspiracy. She opted to do something in the middle. “You two go off and pray to goddess Fatua. Spying is a sin, I am sure.”
They looked at each other, crestfallen, but finally both nodded at her. “Aye, Your Highness, we shall do as you say, of course.”
“Hurry off,” Brandywyn admonished, shooing them away with a gesture.
They curtsied low and backed out of the room.
After the door closed, Brandywyn reached for the concealing picture, thinking to put it back, but hesitated. Unable to help herself, she looked into the adjoining room.
If you enjoyed this tidbit, please check into the book at the following distributors. Get a sample if you’re not sure; I’m confident you’ll be delighted.
