Blog-a-Book-Scene is a monthly themed blogging endeavor from a group of authors who love to share excerpts from their stories. Find us on Twitter with the hashtag #blogabookscene and #PrairieRosePub.
March’s theme is Beware the Ides of March The excerpt below is from my western romance novel, Lizzy that was included in the boxed set Mail Order Brides for Sale: The Remington Sisters! There are four Remington sisters, and a novel about each romantic adventure and it’s on sale until March 10th for only 99 cents. This is the scene where the sisters find out their stepfather is even more evil than they originally thought and conspires with other evil men.
“What is it?” Belle wanted to know.
“I’m not sure, but I know somehow it’s...not good.”
Belle wasn’t one to make a fuss about anything unless it was absolutely necessary. Lizzy could tell she was puzzled and a little annoyed, but curiosity won out and she leaned closer to the door with her three sisters.
“—all settled, then, gentlemen,” Josiah Bloodworth was saying. “You four will marry the Remington sisters and gain a fortune from them—but we will sign an agreement here and now that any monies you receive upon marriage will be split with me down the middle. If it weren’t for me, you wouldn’t even know there was a fortune to be had by marrying a Remington.”
Lizzy drew back sharply, almost as if she had been struck. She looked at Lola, at Belle, at Bree. All of them stared back at her and at each other with shocked expressions.
The same emotion was in the eyes of each of the Remington sisters.
The four sisters have some surprises of their own for Bloodworth. Mail Order Brides for Sale: The Remington Sisters written by Livia J. Washburn, Jacquie Rogers, Cheryl Pierson, and Celia Yeary 99 cent sale ends Saturday March 10th.
