Snippet Sunday’s Swashbuckler #18

Welcome to Snippet Sunday and my post for this week. Thank you so much for stopping by! It’s been months since I last posted, but I’m picking up where I left off last December. This is from Swashbuckler, a contemporary romance. Rachel, our heroine, is at a Hollywood industry party. She’s a high school teacher and definitely feeling that she doesn’t belong. Enjoy!

Who are these people? Most were taller than her, definitely slimmer than her. The women were more beautiful than the men, with their makeup and form-fitting dresses that hugged curves on the hips and the chest. Her eyes picked over the short hairdos, not one strand out of place. Shades of lush reds and deep blacks bobbed side-to-side as the owners conversed with one another. Rachel peaked at her own natural dark-blond swirls hanging over her shoulder. Apparently blond and was not the color du jours. She’d never dyed her hair. For the first time she wondered what it would be like to have a darker shade.

  1. Great inner thoughts that depict the scene so well. I like how she thinks of dying her hair just because of the rest of the room’s standards, it tells us about her want to fit in.

  2. Lovely to see you posting snippets again! I was enjoying this story when last we saw it and I liked the excerpt today. It must be very hard for a ‘mere mortal’ to go to a Hollywood gathering LOL!

  3. So glad to see you back, Karysa. I found a couple of typos if you’re interested, “Rachel peaked at her own natural dark-blond” should be “Rachel peeked at her own natural dark-blond” and “Apparently blond and was not the” should be “Apparently blond was not the”. I love the description of her take on the party.
