Second excerpt from the first chapter of my Civil War holiday romance novella.

thechristmasball_7289_7501“I much appreciate it, son.” Combs’ eyes glazed over and he turned his face away.

Sara moved cautiously through the overcrowded tent trying not to jostle wounded patients. Doctor Ellison stood at the back of the tent conferring with a woman nurse, whose honey-colored hair was arranged in a bun at the nape of her neck.

Miss Marshall turned, light brown eyes drifting over Sara’s form, dismissing her as unworthy of more than a passing appraisal.

“Doc,” Sara said. “I have a wounded man…gut shot. I think you should have a look.”

Ellison nodded to the nurse. “I’ll be right back.” He raised a hand. “Lead on, Private.”

She turned and led him to Combs. As the doctor bent to probe the wound, she studied his handsome face. A dark brown, well-tended beard framed his angular jaw, and the thick, wavy hair touching his collar always seemed to have an errant lock grazing his forehead that she longed to smooth back. His intense hazel eyes set her pulse racing as he examined the man’s wound. How would it feel to have him studying her so intently? She warmed at the thought. Unfortunately, when he glanced at her, all he saw was a boy.
