Six Sentence Sunday Snippet #24

281875_438719332870780_549311297_n

Highland Seer got its fabulous cover last week.  You can see it below this post.  That means we’re getting closer to finding out the release date.  Trust me, when I know, you’ll know.

In the meantime, here’s a really early peek at the first few lines of the prologue to book three, Highland Troth.  

Caitrin Fletcher wrapped her arms around her middle and stared out the open window.

“I willna go, and ye canna make me.”  There was no point in starting an argument, one she knew she would lose, but she didn’t know what else to do.

Outside, the sky brightened  The wind blew the morning fog aside long enough for her to see her father and some of the men saddling horses.

It was nearly time.  In moments, she would leave the only home she’d ever known, perhaps forever.

Thursday Thirteen

This week’s Thursday Thirteen is all about a beautiful Texas day.  We do have a few, when the temperature is perfect, the breeze light, and the sky a cloudless blue bowl overhead.  To put you in the mood, here’s a quote from The Bard (the English one, not the Scot).

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

William Shakespeare 

It’s not quite summer here yet, thank goodness.  But it is a perfect early May day.  Now to the list:

Cloudless blue sky – low humidity

Light Breeze

Hummingbirds at the feeder – several at a time, male and female, mostly blackchins.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Songbirds chirping in the trees – all sorts of wrens, finches, plus the occasional cardinal and western blue jay, which are not melodious, but are colorful

Perfect silence of anything man-made – no car motors, lawnmowers, airplanes, leaf blowers, or anything else

A comfy seat to watch the cat, the birds and the breeze

A good book to read

Snacks

Not a care in the world – for the moment, anyway.

That’s mine.  What makes up your perfect day?  

Six Sentence Sunday Snippet #23

Highland Seer got its fabulous cover this week.  You can see it just below this post.  That means we’re getting closer to finding out the release date.  Trust me, when I know, you’ll know.

In the meantime, here’s a bit more from  Highland Seer, edited to fit the format of today’s post.  

Then she smiled.

But there was something different about this one.  Like she’d decided something, and it had to do with him.

This smile hit Donal like a fist to the gut.  He got the distinct impression that he might be in a different sort of trouble than he’d ever been in before.  But this trouble, he might come to enjoy.

Cover Reveal! Highland Seer’s New Cover is Amazing!

The final version of Highland Seer‘s cover just arrived today.  I couldn’t wait to show it off.  The cover artist, Tina Lynn Stout, captured Donal’s intensity perfectly in this image.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

Highland Seer

Highland Seer

Donal MacNabb is loyal to his adopted Lathan clan, yet he resents being a pawn in their treaty negotiations with the struggling MacKyries. The MacKyrie clan needs his skills as an arms master, but its Laird is bartering for more than Donal is prepared to give.

Ellie MacKyrie knows the Lathan treaty will help protect her clan from the neighbor determined to seize her holdings any way he can—including forcing her into marriage. But she has another reason to want the Lathan alliance. She has Seen the stubborn Donal MacNabb reaching for her in her dreams.

While Donal fights to save a clan in trouble, his desire for the MacKyrie Seer wars with his obligation to his Laird. Before she is forced into a marriage that will destroy her clan, Ellie must find the heart behind Donal’s gruff exterior and convince him he is the man of her dreams.
