Science Fiction and Fantasy Saturday No. 19 (#sffsat) – Warlock’s Pawn – #FantasyRomance

This snippet is from Warlock’s Pawn and continues from the last one (click on the SFFSat tag at the bottom of the post to read past snippets). Warlock’s Pawn is a fantasy romance inspired by The Arabian Nights. It was released last month and is available on  LSBooksAmazonBarnes & NobleARe, and Kobo.

In the previous post, Alia told Duncan removing her veil means death. She didn’t specify whose.

Shaking her head, she corrected him. “I speak of my execution, not yours.”

He chuckled. “Saving my life ensures the same punishment, and you knew that before you came. Anora will not discover this transgression any more than she will know I have seen your face.” With those words, he tugged down the front portion of the veil.

The fey’s hair and ears were still wrapped under blue fabric, but he could now see her soft rounded cheeks and small pert nose. Those full, slightly upturned lips were so pale they almost blended into her ivory skin. Ebony brows and lashes contrasted with the dewy face to bring attention to those odd-colored eyes.

  1. Dang. He had to do it – he HAD to tug on that veil. *sighs* Men! I somehow felt it was her execution she was referring to. Here’s hoping something happens to intervene.

  2. With a lead-in like that, he almost had to remove the veil. Here’s hoping he’s able to protect her from death…

  3. ’tis a shame to hide such a pretty face behind a veil. I would probably remove it, too. I hope they can keep their secret, but something tells me it won’t last.

  4. So like a man. It ain’t his execution. He’s like Honey Badger, that one!

    Good stuff.

  5. “If anything, you’re going to die anyway…might as well show me that pretty face.” On the other hand, she sounds gorgeous. 🙂
