Six Sentence Sunday

 Happy Sunday! This week has gone by incredibly fast for me. With writing, working, a visiting friend and a concert, I've barely stopped to rest. It's also been a great week writing wise because I finally received my cover for book 3 of The Mercenary Tales: The Lost Mercenary


All he ever wanted was a family and some land for farming. Instead, his dreams were ripped at the seams by a ruthless king. Choosing to become a mercenary, Gregorii has roamed the land clinging to a past he thought long gone until Emmeline stumbled onto his path. Now, his dreams resurface and hope reemerges. The only problem is Emmeline’s defiance. 

Emmeline has a secret. An important secret. A dangerous secret. Few know her mission. Fewer know her past. When Gregorii turns up in her life, past, present and future unite and her whole world threatens to crumble.

How long will she be able to hide the truth from him? How long will her heart resist the inevitable?**

 Isn't it pretty? Release date is set for November 5th! So little more than 2 weeks left! Yay! To celebrate this lovely new cover today's Six Sentences belong to The Lost Mercenary. Read on ahead and enjoy! 
Searching the pouch tied at his waist, he pulled out a ribbon and pulled back his hair while glancing at the fast approaching city of Sieghard, the kingdom’s capital. The lush green and brown of the mountains and fields around mingled with the grey of the impressive structure that stood high atop the city commanding and protecting, along with its high walls, the rows of huts and houses that cascaded and spilled onto the docks. A glimmer of light caught his attention and he observed the strong stone fortification overlooking the city more carefully. He imagined soldiers garbed in armor, standing atop the parapet, watching over the kingdom as colorful banners whipped against the wind around them.
“It’s quite a sight if it’s the first time you see it.” Gregorii tilted his head, to face the Captain.
