Welcome back to Medieval Monday! Our nature theme continues with stormy seas ahead! I’m featuring The Pirate’s Redemption by USA TODAY bestselling author Ruth A. Casie.
If you’re following my excerpt from Night of the Owl, you can find the fourth snippet on Ruth’s blog today: http://www.RuthACasie.blogspot.com
Now, let’s enjoy her fourth snippet:
The ship glided out of the protection of the dock and sailed into the churning channel. Huddled under the sail, hugging her knees, Darla thought she might as well be blind. To add to her discomfort, the aroma of beer from the surrounding barrels was overpowering in the small space.
The rise and fall of the ship had her holding on to the barrels for dear life. Large raindrops that randomly pelted Darla’s shelter intensified. The ends of her canvas hideout fluttered and hammered a beat as gusts of wind plowed into the standing barrels sending sprays of water through the spaces between them. The tight ropes holding her sanctuary together sang as they strained against the pitching of the ship and onslaught of the wind and rain.

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.
