Saturday Snark: Nov 12th

Once again it's time for Saturday Snark. I have to thank everyone who has stopped by my blog and the rest of the snarksters' blogs.  Make sure to stop back by Marie Sexton's blog for more fun snark.  With that being said, here's this week's snark. It comes from one of my current WIPs, Seduction's Call.  In this scene Kennet, the twin to the hero has been tasked to lead the heroine, Braelyn, to his brother's home. 
Standing outside the dimly lit cabin, Braelyn pulled her wrap tighter around her. Glancing at Kennet, the unexpected man Bilé had chosen to escort her, she shivered. The night air wasn’t cold but after spending the evening in the Underworld even one hundred degree weather would feel cool.
“Are you sure about this?” She tried to keep her apprehension from bleeding through her calm veneer. The last thing she needed was for Flannery’s brother to realize how uncertain she felt. The man’s commanding presence did weird things to her stomach. Suddenly she found herself doubting her own intentions for the first time in nearly two hundred years.
Kennet gave her a reassuring smile. “Of course. Don’t let my brother’s bite fool you. He’s a man like any other.” He quirked an eyebrow, “He’s almost as handsome as me.”
A reluctant smile tugged at the corners of her mouth. “Almost?”
“Yeah. Everyone knows I’m the charming, handsome one.” He shoved away from the tree he’d been leaning against. “Just ask me – I’ll tell you.” He leaned forward as if confiding in her. “My wife even agrees with me.”
She couldn’t help it. A bubble of laughter burst free. “You’re unbelievable, Kennet Baghadur.”
Chuckling, he guided her towards the cottage with a hand at her waist. “You have no idea.”
