Welcome. Today I’m giving you a tiny snippet from my July release from Secret Cravings Publisher, Spy Catcher. This is a sweet regency romantic suspense. In this scene the hero lays eyes on the heroine for the first time.
“This couldn’t possibly be the companion Thomas was talking about. She’s much too young and pretty.”
From the angle he was watching them greeted by Whitchurch’s offspring, it would appear the other woman was known to them as well.
With the skill of an artist he studied her. Slim but not too as the traveling gown gracing her hugged her curves suggested. From under her fashionable bonnet he observed wisps of blonde hair tossed about by the gentle breeze.
He wondered what colour her eyes were; blue, green, hazel or brown. With her lips, so pleasingly full and turned up slightly at the corners, he wagered passion would fill her beautiful orbs when kissed. Something he wagered he’d be doing before weeks end.
He watched as she glanced around her surroundings and when he saw her raise her head to take in the front of the mansion he ducked behind the heavy dark blue curtain. Once done he felt foolish for hiding from a woman, something he’d never done.
Thus, he knew the effect, even from a distance, this goddess had on him.

That first meeting, when they first encounter each other and they first feel the pull of attraction – it’s a magical moment, isn’t it? And I love the way you’ve described it.
Very enticing description.
And I love the girl with the mask in the photo.
An interesting first glimpse…and an even more interesting reaction on his part. Thank you for sharing!
I love a male POV in a romance. It’s such a nice change of pace. She certainly made a powerful first impression on him.
He’s hiding from her, love it! Sounds like it’s going to be a great romance, Lindsay. Looking forward to this one.
