Six Sentence Sunday #10: The Claws Come Out

This week, I return to my Regency paranormal romance WIP, A Woman of Proper Accomplishments. We're jumping way forward from the last AWOPA snippet. In this snippet, the heroine Helena is speaking with a local daughter of wealth, Jane Thornton, after they both finish competing in an archery competition.



---------

“I have heard Lord Johnstone and Lady Johnstone are very pleased with this event," Jane said. "They are considering starting an archery society.”


“I shall have to put serious thought into joining,” Helena said. “Will you?”

“Unfortunately, I have many important considerations on my time. I am sure a girl of your modest background would not understand such a problem.”

Intriguing combination of Regency/Paranormal. Can't wait to see where this is going.

I'm hoping Helena will come back with smart remark. Some girls need to be put in their spot!
