The Wicked Lady

 by Brenda Jernigan

Excerpt:

"No." She swallowed hard.  "I dinna mean tae shoot ye."

"So what do you call this?" He pointed to his injury with a cynical smile.

"A mistake," Kristen offered. “I did pull the trigger, but 'twas an accident, tae be sure."

He took a step closer, making Kristen feel smaller still. "And I suppose your hand in my pocket was an accident, too?"

"Nay, that was on purpose," she admitted and watched as the man smiled for the very first time. He could almost be called handsome when he wasn't frowning and the coldness left his eyes. She noted his eyes had changed from the dark color they were a minute ago to a lighter blue. His hair was the color of dark wheat and a bit longer than stylish. He kept it tied back with a leather thong. Ah, but he was big--too big, she thought now that she'd gotten a good look at him. Why hadn't she picked a smaller man's pocket?

Probably for the same reason she couldn't quit looking at the man now. He was a fine one. And she'd been drawn to him.

"Well, at least you're an honest thief. Which surprises me since you're a Scot." He took another step forward, and she took one backwards, and then another when he didn't stop.

"Don't you hurt my sister!" Hagan drew back and kicked Claremont in the shin.

"Watch it," Robbie's warning came a little too late. "The boy's got a nasty habit."

"Bloody hell," Trevor Claremont shouted as he snatched the child up by the scuff of the neck.

The child's brown eyes grew large, but he put on a brave front. "I'm not 'fraid of you," he blustered, reminding Claremont of a kitten spitting and hissing.

Trevor wanted to smile at the brave little boy who reminded him a lot of himself at that age, but he didn't. He admired the lad for taking up for his sister. The boy's hair was cut in a bob that hung to his eyebrows, and he looked as if he was peeking from beneath his bangs.  A child this young shouldn't be on the streets, then again, neither should his sister.

"I wasn't going to hurt your sister.  I'm going to make sure she doesn't hurt me," Trevor explained in a very level tone to the youngster. "Do you see this blood on my shoulder?"

"Aye."  he child's head bobbed. "How did that happen?"

"Your sister shot me!" Trevor set the boy back on his feet.

The kid turned and looked at his sister. "What you do that for, Kristen?”

“Hush up, Hagan."

Winter Fire ~ Mini-Blurb

 by Sue-Ellen Welfonder

When a Highland lass meets a dashing stranger in an enchanted place, she gladly gives her heart – and her passion – to the lover she only knows as the Lord of Winter. 

Excerpt: 

(Set-up to excerpt: Hero and heroine meet again after a hurtful parting- it should be clear how much he wants her, how determined he is to make amends)  

Lord of Winter in Love…

“I’ll no’ let it end this way, lass.” 

With a startled gasp, Katla wheeled about to see her ‘Lord of Winter’ loom up out of the mist, his dark hair blowing in the wind, his expression fierce. He reminded her of the Highlanders of yore, the bold warriors of the Bruce’s day. The fearsome ones who swooped down from the hills, yelling their war slogans and swinging their swords, as they cut a proud swath across the Highlands, making themselves legends.

A shame the man before her wasn’t worthy of such fame.

She looked at him now, striving to see past his powerful appeal to the scoundrel within. She also silently cursed herself because she failed, miserably.

She did manage to lift her chin. “Something that never started requires no end.”

“Magic neither begins nor ends.” He came closer, reached to touch her cheek. “It simply is.”

Katla frowned, stepping back. “So you are now a wizard as well as a false god?”

“I am a man.” He dropped to one knee and spoke to her dog, calming him. “A man besotted with you,” he said, glancing up at her as he rubbed Glaum’s ears. “I am nae spellcaster and ne’er claimed to be. But I’ll no’ deny the wonder of Odin’s Flame. The night was enchanted, blessed with the greatest magic.”

“So it was – lust!”  

“There was that, aye.” He stood, dusted his hands. “I’ll no’ deny that. I wanted you so badly I can still taste the desire on the back of my throat. It has ne’er left me, ne’er diminished. In all this time, lass, I couldnae forget you.”

“Then try harder.”

“I shall.” He had the nerve to smile. “But no’ to forget you. I wish to win your heart.”
