From my current WIP, The Gambit Queen: Book Three of the Magdalen Cycle, an historical fantasy…
Isabella soothed her daughter’s lusty cry with the the tip of her smallest finger. Alix needed fed and put to bed, but she wanted just a little bit more time with her. The affairs of state in Henri’s absence kept her busy all day. She had only the night to enjoy her children. She made a face at Alix, smiling, and kissed her small nose. The baby suckled on her finger, her bright gray eyes staring up at her from beneath a downy show of dark hair.
