Sweet Saturday Samples

Welcome to the first week of Sweet Saturday Samples, where authors share some 'clean' lines from their works!

My g-rated excerpt is from my fantasy romance novella, Through the Rabbit Hole:

A soft laugh sounded, and a gentle hand helped slide the dress into place. She spun around. A young teen stood there, eerily similar to the young girl she’d seen but ten or fifteen minutes ago.

“There are more of you?” She slapped a hand over her mouth, and heat crept over her cheeks. The words had slipped out, but that didn’t make them any more polite.

To check out more samples or to join in next time, click on over to Sweet Saturday Samples.

Through the Rabbit Hole Blurb:
Social worker Natalie Danvers never thought she would fall head first into her very own dimensional tear — straight into a fey lord’s lap. The handsome but infuriatingly vague Lorh insists she’s stuck in his land for three weeks and that only she can discover the reasons behind her appearance in TirAnn. Natalie’s convinced this is all nonsense until forgotten memories of Lorh and his siblings resurface and collide with reason. Just who and what is she to Lorh and his family?

I like how you brought the other person in. Sort of slipped the young teen in between the air molecules

Oh my, I keep using the same words but this is intriguing.
Sweet Saturday Samples is shaping up to be a stunning event.

I love this scene, and the way she adjusts to the surprises.

I've so often found myself in her position - open mouth before the brain engages.

Intriguing. sounds like an original concept - like the social worker aspect
