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 14:

Carly was enjoying her ride immensely until rounding a thicket and coming upon a most disturbing scene. 
She had noticed a farmer carrying a large fence pole who now deposited it into a hole for the very bare-chested Lord Huntington who immediately set about pounding the post into the ground with enormous force.  Picking up his shovel, he then began filling the hole with mounds of dirt wasting no time at all.  His golden muscles rippled in the sun’s rays, moisture dripping down his body, his dark locks blowing in the breeze, wet with perspiration. 
The farmer’s hesitation in helping to fill the hole brought Creighton’s attention to the subject which had caught his tenant’s interest. 
Lady Blakemore sat upon Clover with her mouth gaping open in her flushed face as she stared wide-eyed at his near nakedness, her flowers spilt upon the ground. 
As they quickly observed each other, she hiccupped. 
Grinning stunningly, he was aware of his half-clad body, and the reason for her qualms.  Stepping forward to have a chat with the shy girl, he reached to grasp the horse’s halter, but she was too fast for him.  With lightning speed, she whirled about, turning in the opposite direction, yelling HeeYaw! galloping quickly away. 
Chuckling together, he and the farmer had a good, long laugh over the poor governess’s obvious embarrassment. 

This is one of my most favorite scenes.  I love next Friday's selection as well, the follow-up to this scene, where she must face Lord Huntington again.  Carly is so embarrassed! 

Thanks for reading with me today.  Read more on Friday!
