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.

Friday, August 12, 2011 -- Twice Weekly Blog -- The Governess

Excerpt from The Governess -- Chapter 12 continued:

The new gown Carly was stitching was coming along splendidly.  It would be simple, but it would fit her much better than any other she owned.  “I think it quite lovely,” she said to herself.  The green fabric would complement her eye color, a comment that would have been made by her mother, if she were here.  Deftly, her fingers sewed the tiny stitches so that they were hardly noticeable.  Within the week, she was sure to be finished. 
Carly had felt numerous occasions to pray in gratitude for the plentiful blessings she was receiving.  So long had she and her sister been scraping a living, she had almost forgotten what gift bounty was? 
            Elspeth would often join her in her off time, asking questions of her project.  Carly was determined that she must make the most of this little girl’s interest in sewing and start her upon it very soon.  She must ask permission to take the children to town on an outing to procure a sampler for Elspeth and maybe something for Jonathon that would ignite his interests. 
            Smiling to herself, she enjoyed her quiet solitude, humming softly.             


Tittering laughter sounded down the hallway as Carly walked towards the salon.  Only realizing then that the room must be occupied, she halted.   Another assortment of giggles assailed her ears as she wondered who was here.  And then she heard a sound she had never before heard. 
Could it be? 
Was it even possible? 
She doubted it!  Highly! 
But she could not help herself as she secreted a peek into the room to see for herself. 
            There he was, in all his greatness.  Laughing with the most delightful young lady.  Of all things!  A real, true-to-it’s-name, belly laugh! 
            Who was she?  She seemed to have Lord Huntington’s undivided attention.  Exclusivity without the yelling?  Was it possible? 
            She was harsh, was she not?  She must strive to be more kind. 

Judging others is hard not to do sometimes.  However, it is best to see the good in people.  Carly will attempt to be less judgmental of her harsh master, but Lord Huntington will try her patience.  Thanks for reading with me today.  :)  Join me on Monday for more!
