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.

Excerpt from The Governess -- Chapter 11 continued:

Fuming in her London bedchamber at the letter she had just received from a devout servant, at home in Dunfordshire, she paced. 
Hatred always came easy to her.  She felt it for most everyone. 
But especially now for the new governess at Huntington Manor! 
Did she really have anything to worry about? 
Of course not.  But she would not take a chance at losing Creighton!  No one would have him but her! 
Why had he engaged her?  And so young a person?  That was a troubling first for her dear earl. 
New gowns must be ordered today!  Preparations for home must be started.  Her return to the country would be grand indeed! 


Jonathon was being obstinate again. 
He was thorough in his testing of her.  Carly was sure he was thinking that she, like all previous governess’s, would desert him.  He was trying his boundaries, keeping himself safe from caring, not lending his heart to anyone who would crush it.  Elspeth was becoming more and more impatient with her brother by the day, for she was convinced that Miss Blakemore cared for them both.  Jonathon’s antics were her frustration, as well as Miss Blakemore’s.  Carly was sure he was venturing to see if she would tattle on him and, therefore, receive his father’s attention, even if it was in reproof. 
One night, Jonathon had put powder all over Carly’s sheets.  The next day, he locked her out of the nursery.  Other times, he ignored her when she would speak to him during their studies.  He had put dirt upon her schoolroom chair, and so forth. 
He was miserable, she could tell. 
But he was only contributing to those feelings.  She must catch him off his guard and make him smile or laugh, anything to show him that he could be happy again. 
Carly would write to her sister for suggestions.  Susannah had always been creative.  Maybe there was something they could arrange together to bring Jonathon a long-lasting kind of happiness.    
She would write. 
She would pray.
