SSS: Old enemies meet again

Thanks so much for visiting to read my Six Sentence Sunday snippet. :) And thanks especially for your comments.

Here's another peek at A Hard Day's Knight, due out soon as part of Decadent's 1NS series.  Lance meets his ancient enemy, a certain witch by the name of Morgan le Fay, and isn't about to back down but chooses to dance with Gwyn instead:

The wench’s harsh laughter raked his skin, and seeped into his veins like poison. “Enjoy tonight. Time’s so fleeting, isn’t it?”


Except when it stretched to infinity. “I have no intention of wasting it.” He led Gwyn down the length of the table and toward the swirling couples.

Methinks the wench is sounding very witchy. (BTW, your site will not take comments with a wordpress ID--had to use the name/URL option Tried 5 times and captca threw me off every time and I'm sure I had the last 4 right.

That's one very detirmined guy there, who's focussed on what he wants and will wait for it.
