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 13 concluded, Chapter 14 begun:

Recognizing Lord Huntington’s horse, Carly avoided her master.  But not before she saw an amazingly dressed lady riding alongside him. 
            So.  He did socialize. 
            Why did she question this?  Why did she have to think on the gossip that she had heard?  And, most annoyingly, why did she care? 
He had every right to engage in company of his choosing. 

Chapter 14

Carly continued to plan the treasure hunt with care.  “It must be perfect,” she said with joy.  Would Jonathon enjoy this adventure, she wondered?  “How could he not?”  She was even making him an eye patch and red handkerchief for him to wear. 
They had made great progress together, and she was hoping to break down his reserve once and for all.  He had given up on his antics, discovering that Carly was not disturbed by them in the slightest. 
At least, that is what she led him to believe. 
In fact, his last trick had backfired upon him completely.  The slippery frog which he had carefully placed in the potted plant, strategically positioned in the middle of the schoolroom table, had become the next biology lesson when it plopped upon the table in front of them making Elspeth scream.  Carly had barely controlled the same impulse. 
Obviously, the creature was dissatisfied with the potted plant in which it was hiding. 
Without so much as blinking an eye, Carly had picked it up, and Jonathon’s curiosity in studying the green, slimy creature had gotten the best of him.  He had completely forgotten that it was to be a joke. 
Carly hated every sticky minute of it.  It had taken all her courage to handle the bulging creature, but she had determined that if she could take advantage of his presented opportunity, he would not pester her anymore with his tricks. 
Or so she hoped. 

Frogs have not been all Carly has battled.  Will she find a way to fit in at Huntington Manor?  Read with me on Monday to find out more.
