Sweet Saturday Sample: Wild Desperation

Welcome to Sweet Saturday Sample.  Today's excerpt comes from The Enchanted.  It picks up after Prince Alan's wise woman cares for Morgane's feet.  When you're done here, you can read more samples at


Forced by his father into a marriage he didn’t want, Prince Alan soon finds that his bride isn’t the sweet, submissive creature he expected.  Morgane has the heart of a dragon and beauty beyond compare, but she isn’t thrilled about the marriage either.  When black treachery threatens the kingdom, Morgane and Alan embark on a perilous journey that has an excellent chance of ending in failure and death for them and all of their people.  

As Alan moved toward her, her eyes grew wide and filled

with wild desperation. "You fear me, but I am not like your father,


"You are exactly like my father,"╩║she spat, her eyes now dark

with loathing.

Alan thought for a moment. "I do not see how. I am not in

the habit of cutting people's faces or burning their feet."

"Not yet."

"I promise that I will never hurt you."

Morgane's expressive, sea-colored eyes flashed again. "I am

nothing more than a brood mare to you, so you have already hurt


Alan scowled. "I have shown you nothing but kindness!"

I hope Prince Alan is a man of his word and that Morgane can learn to trust him.
