Guest Post

I did a guest post on Lynda Frazier’s Blog. I meant to post this earlier, but my WiFi decided to act up and I couldn’t go online until now.

 
Please do me the favor of stopping by and leaving a comment.
 
 
 

Persephone’s Song Anthology

Image

I’m thrilled to announce that Persephone’s Song Anthology has been released on Amazon. It includes my story, Weather Witch. 

 

Weather Witch: Regency Nobleman Lord Godfrey is negotiating for a wife, until Meredith literally storms into the Manor. Then all bets are off as he tries to tempt the tempestuous nymph into marrying him.

excerpt:  

Arianna jumped up, pushing her chair back with an ugly scrape. “She’s here.”

“I know, daughter.” Lady Cawyn pressed her lips together into a thin line.

“She’ll be angry.” Arianna fisted her hands and turned toward her mother. “I told you not to do it, Mother.”

“Who will be angry?” Who or what has them so anxious? Lord Godfrey eyed the two frightened women. William, his steward, shrugged.

All at once there came a mighty bang, not unlike the sound of lightning hitting a tree. Thunder rolled overhead. As the sound faded, pounding feet rushed down the outside vestibule. The double doors were flung wide. In a sudden gust of wind the candles blew out. The maids and butler rushed to relight them. Lightning momentarily lit up the room.

A woman in scant clothing stood at the foot of the table, dripping wet, her hair plastered to her head and shoulders. Anger flashed in her stormy expression. Her blonde hair was nearly white as sea foam, and her eyes gray as a rainstorm.

“Old woman, where is my son?” The woman’s voice was husky.

He stood and stared at the apparition bathed in candlelight. Her breasts heaved as she took in great gulps of air.

“Now this woman has fire.” He didn’t realize he’d spoken aloud until every person in the room turned toward him.

Excerpt:

“How’s the leg?” Seth asked.

“Better. It doesn’t hurt.”

“Let me have a look.”  He removed his blood stained shirt, washed his hands, and sat sideways at the dining table.

Megan walked over, showing him her injured thigh.

He pulled her closer so she stood between his legs. Running his hands down to the bandage, he asked, “Megz, have you been shaving?”

“Um, no.” She gazed down at his warm hands on her tanned skin.

“Blimey, no hair or stubble. Not even one.” He carefully examined her leg.

“That is the wonders of modern technology.”

“Howzat?” He furrowed his brow.

“I had my hair removed with laser treatments.”

“Smooth like a baby’s bum.” He grinned. Gingerly, he took off part of the tape so he could peek under it. “It looks a bit better. Just a small pink ring around the wound, but it has a decent scab.”

“Oh, good.” She briefly closed her eyes as relief washed through her.

He smoothed the bandage back down, then smiled at her.

“I want to thank you for taking care of me.” She cupped his face, leaned down, and kissed him on the forehead.

“Try a little lower, love.” He tilted his head back.

“Well, since you went to all the trouble of shaving.” After a moment’s hesitation, she bent down, giving him another kiss on the lips.

The moment she did, his arms went around her waist. Seth pulled her against his bare chest. He deepened the kiss, brushing his tongue against hers.

Megan melted against him, making a small noise in her throat as an incredible flare of desire took her completely by surprise. The kiss was long, deep and very intense, while his large, warm hands slipped under her shirt, massaging her back.

Megan pulled back, looking down at the passionate expression in Seth’s gray eyes. “That was…”

“Bloody amazing,” he finished for her.

Megan’s eyes went wide. She took several steps back out of his embrace. She leaned against the counter. “Oh, I really shouldn’t have done that.”

“Don’t whinge, love. You needed that and so did I.” He gave a lopsided grin.

Megan found she wanted to trace his full, kissable lips with her fingers. Oh, no. She ran outside, breathing deeply of the clean evening air. What’s the matter with me? I’m married. You don’t kiss other men when you’re married.

“Megz,” Seth called, ducking as he stepped through the doorway. “It’s okay, love.”

“No, it’s not.” She wrapped her arms around herself, even though she really wanted to throw them around Seth. Megan bit her lip. This wasn’t supposed to happen. I shouldn’t feel anything for Seth. He is a big happy-go-lucky lug, also handsome and sexy as hell. Oh, damn.

He walked up behind her, placing his hands on her shoulders, sending warmth right through her. “When’s the last time you and your bloke threw a leg over?”

“That’s none of your business,” she snapped. Heat rose to her face.

“Megz,” he said gently, “ya act like yer haven’t been touched in a very long time. A lot longer than the two weeks that yer been here.”

She didn’t answer him. He’s right. Jonathan hadn’t slept with me in six months. I must be touch hungry. “Are we going to cook that pig or what?”

Grammar Factoid

While I was at the bank today, on the TV screen they have to entertain the waiting masses, mentioned factoids. It stated that punctuation wasn’t used until the fifteenth century when the printing press was invented. Until then thewordsrantogetherlikethis.

However, after I went home and I did research I found that wasn’t exactly true. English has always used some form of punctuation, but it wasn’t standardized until the invention of the printing press. In the ninth century, the Romans started using dots to separate words.

Later, a librarian in Alexandria became the first to coin the terms “comma,” “colon,” and “period,” although they were very different from what we use today.

It’s interesting to see how grammar evolved.
