Six-Sentence Sunday -- September 30

Six-Sentence Sunday

I'm participating in "Six-Sentence Sunday" for the first time today. 
I hope you'll enjoy this quick little snippet from Irresistible, my historical romance set in 1890. 
The story begins when Rise Childers receives an unexpected gift from her best friend, Lorraine. 

Enjoy!

Rise reached for the package. She would accept the gift, but only to please Lorraine. Her fingers fumbled at the bow. At last the gaily-decorated paper fell away to reveal a garment box, and when she removed its lid, her jaw dropped. Mouth agape, she stared down at the navy blue tunic and knickers. "What in the world is this?"

  1. Welcome Christina. This is a great introduction, job very well done! I really makes me wonder why in the world her best friend would send her such a gift. Educational purposes? :) I'm looking forward to finding out more.
