Welcome to yet another Weekend Writing Warriors.
I thought I’d share a few lines from my latest Gothic Romance with you this week’s Weekend Writing Warriors. Enjoy!
As the carriage driver tittered to the horses, the pain in Emilie’s lovely eyes echoed that in Linton’s heart.
They exited the Maigny’s property as if hell chased them and Linton wondered, did hell’s invisible minions trail him? He envisioned his next visit to Nightingale’s Reste
Linton wished he could spend the day breathing in Emilie’s wonderful scent. Or kissing her. She loved him, but a rogue stole her away even before he met her.
He considered himself a rebel like his father, but he’d never thought of himself as a warrior. For her, though, he might entertain becoming one. He wouldn’t give her up without a fight. What did her nightmares have to do with Bartram, though?

WHAT THE CARDS FORETELL MAY BE REAL, AFTER ALL
1793: Having escaped the Reign of Terror, Emilie Maigny took refuge in England, trying to come to grips with the life and loss she left behind. When her brother, Sinjon, returns, a terrifying evil swoops down upon her. Nightmares plague her now, providing strange clues … but to what?
Scottish-born Linton Morrison spent his entire life in luxury, whiling away the hours in intense study of the tarot and the cards’ hidden meanings, but until he met the lovely Emilie Maigny, he would never have guessed how important his study might be–to his life and Emilie’s survival when terrible evil strikes.
A Cypher is all Emilie needs, but what is it? Is Linton the key? He may charm her heart–and he may be her only salvation.
