It's Here!

Book Two in The Huntington Saga Series Novels~

Pirate Bride!

Miss Susannah Blakemore is kidnapped and sold into white slavery as payback to the Huntingtons. Will her pirate hero save her?

“The Huntingtons will pay. Oh, they will pay.” Plots and unholy alliances are put into action carrying out long-awaited retribution.

Only … one was not thought of. One was not even considered. How would anyone have guessed that a descendant of a pirate would take up his old family tradition in a mad quest to regain his bitterly lost love? The Marquess of Latham will not abide by this act of violence arranged for his precious love, but will surely save her -- will he not? And will he make her the next pirate bride?

Next? There must be a first to have a 'next'. But there was another ... centuries ago ... that still walks the halls of Stonecrest Castle.

Monday, June 20, 2011 - BiWeekly Blog - Chapter 9 finished--

Excerpt from The Governess -- Chapter 9 finished:

Carly was startled awake by a frightening noise.  Staring into the darkness, her awakened limbs froze.  Scratching sounds were heard outside her door.  Was there a cat in this household?  Perhaps a dog?  She had not remembered seeing pets. 
There it is again!  It was a horrible scraping, as if someone deliberately dragged something sharp steadily against her door! 
Carly’s nerves jolted!  What was it?  Or more disturbingly, who? 
Carly called out, “Who is there?!” 
The sounds stopped.  Was she in any danger?  Carly controlled the urge to confront her ghost.  She hated giving her peace of mind over to any imagined danger. 
All at once, she ripped her covers off, running to the door.  Flinging it open, she hoped to catch a glimpse at something…or someone. 
She had no such luck. 
Breathing a deep breath, she decided she must still be getting used to this place.  Either that, or…
Carly hated to think that maybe her ghost was just being careful. 
And more.  Had anyone else heard it? 
Shuddering at the thought of having a secret enemy, she closed her door, locked it and made her way back to bed. 
Pulling her covers up to her nose, sleep came gradually… 

This snippet is short, obviously.  I'm trying to find the perfect balance between long and short excerpts.  Quite difficult to do some days.  Do you have a preference?  Anyone?

Join me on Friday for the beginning of Chapter 10.  Does Carly stay or go?
