Sneak Peek Sunday – Fiery Bride

First the giveaway. I’m giving a $5 Starbucks card to one lucky commentor. Tell me what you think of this passage. Do you still want to know more or is it getting dull. Be honest, I need to know. Do you want more?

This is the next snippet from my work in progress, Fiery Bride. Fiery Bride is the third in the Matchmaker & Co series. Heiress Bride, the second in the series was just released and is available at Amazon
The first book in the series, Capital Bride is also available at Amazon

First a little set up. Maggie has just had one of her employees quit with no notice, leaving her in a lurch.

Mr. Sinclair put his hat on and wiped his brow with his kerchief before venturing back out into the already hot and sunny morning. “I’m truly sorry, Mrs. Selby.”

Maggie got up, came around the desk and held her hand out to him. “You just take care of Mary. That’s your job now.”

He shook her hand, nodded and walked out the door.

She went back to her desk, grabbed Caleb Black’s file and then went upstairs to pack. Jenny Talbot would be by in an hour or so to pick up her tickets. Maggie would tell her then that she’d be accompanying her not Mr. Sinclair. It was just as well. Jenny was skittish as a kitten and Maggie worried about the match, but both Mr. Black and Jenny had been adamant that it take place. If truth be told, Maggie was a better match for Mr. Black than Jenny. But she was here to find matches for others, not for herself.

She understood Jenny’s reasons. Jenny was the oldest of seven children and, at twenty-two, felt she was a burden on her parents even though she worked and helped out with the bills. She hated her job and wanted to get married. Her chances were getting slim. Most young men of marriageable age were either already married or old, widowers with hellions for children.
