Welcome back to Medieval Monday, and welcome back, Ruth A. Casie!  You might remember, I featured The Pirate’s Jewel a few weeks ago on its release day.  Now we get a peek inside the pages!

If you’re following my excerpt from Shadow of the Swan, you can find the fifth snippet of Robert and Constance’s first encounter on Ruth’s blog.  Remember to leave a comment there for a chance to win a signed print copy of the book!  Here’s the link: https://www.RuthACasie.blogspot.com

Now, let’s enjoy Ruth’s fifth snippet:

Wesley made his way back to Richards and helped roll the last of the barrels up the gangplank.

Richards mopped his brow and looked at the sky.

“I’ll make sure there is no other cargo lingering on the dock while you lash down the barrels, then I’ll rouse the men in the tavern. From the looks of the sky and building wind, you’ll want to leave as soon as possible.” Wesley hurried down the gangplank.

The excerpt continues next week on Cathy MacRae’s blog: https://www.cathymacraeauthor.com/bits-n-bobs-author-blog

You can catch last week’s snippet on Lane McFarland’s blog: https://lanemcfarland.com/blog/

Commenters each week will be entered into a drawing for a free digital copy of Ruth’s work, The Maxwell Ghost.

A little more about The Pirate’s Jewel:

He had walked away from women before, but never with remorse, never with his heart broken.

Wesley Reynolds will do anything to avenge his family’s banishment from Dundhragon Castle even throw in with the notorious pirate, MacAlpin. His plan, ruin Lord Ewan’s trading network. He has a more devious plan for his father’s ‘best friend,’ the man who abandoned them at the eleventh hour. He’ll ruin the man’s most precious jewel, his daughter Darla. Wesley’s so close to ruining the trade network and succeeding he can almost taste it, but revenge is not nearly as sweet as Darla’s kisses.

Darla Maxwell, beloved by her parents has no prospects of marriage. Her father and Lord Ewan search to find her the right husband. Darla’s special gifts are frightening to many. She has visions that often come true. The murky image of a man haunts her, she’s sure it’s Lord Ewan’s soon-to-be son-in-law, but the vision morphs when she meets Wesley. The meaning couldn’t be any clearer to her, her destiny lies with Wesley.

When revelations surface indicating Wesley has been deceived and his revenge misplaced. Will he find the truth of what really happened to his family in time to stop the pirates? Will Darla ever forgive him? Will he ever forgive himself?
