So it's scary to share snippets from Pirate Bride because I worry about the same thing. Authors toil long hours to produce something that might entice readers to read their hard work. Not for it to be stolen. I hope I can entice those of you waiting for the sequel with this little tidbit. Pirate Bride is getting closer to being released this spring. I worried that I wouldn't make my deadline, but hope has been restored. :) ...I hope... I've enjoyed rereading early chapters and thought I might share a snippet with you. Shhh! Only share with those you trust...
Hope you all enjoy!
Late that evening, as Susannah walked to her room, she saw an elegant lady and an old English wolf hound walking in the corridor away from her. Would she not have met this guest at supper, she thought, oddly?
Curious still, she slowed her pace and looked behind her as an eerie feeling crept along the hall making her shiver. Catching her breath, she could almost smell something. Was it floral…and spice? Looking back to where the lady and her dog walked, she noticed how the lady turned, looking over her shoulder at Susannah, her black Spanish tiara and veil stunning against her red gown. But, before she could turn the corner, she and the hound vanished.
Sucking in a breath, Susannah stopped short, breathing hard, reaching a steadying hand to the cold stone wall. Feeling faint, she closed her eyes a moment to even her breathing. The eerie feeling dissipated only to leave behind a longing sense of sadness, loneliness, and despair.
Was she losing her mind?
