But fellow Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday Folk, I thought I’d give you one more little piece of To Target the Heart.


Blurb: Having staved off the idea of marriage for years, Prince Hamish finds himself forced to face its realities when his mother holds a contest of arms with him as the prize. But one contestant is not as they appear and promises a way out. Can they win against all the odds?

So, we left off last week with Darshan, ambassador of Udynea Empire and heir to the imperial throne, declaring that he prefers to have Hamish over a wife and heir. I had to snip off Hamish’s previous narrative to stick to the ten-sentence rule, but the lad is wary of hoping too much. It’s still Dar that speaks…

“Gods, if you could see the look on your face.” He shook his head, a delightfully smug smile playing on his lips. “Allow me to make this entirely clear for you: I wouldn’t put myself through this great malarkey if I…” He sighed. “If I didn’t find you so… compatible. And before you start rolling those stunning blue eyes of yours, I mean more than when we’re fooling around.” The man planted himself before Hamish, his arms akimbo. “I am going to win this, then I’m going to drag you back to my country like the savage I apparently am and marry the living daylights out of you, and there’s nothing you can do to stop me.” He bent over, pushing his face close. “What do you have to say about that?”

    1. Hamish? He’s all for eloping with the Prince of Udynea. He just isn’t certain that marrying the future emperor is a good idea or if Darshan will even win.
