Another look at the first chapter of my American Victorian romance novella.

Excerpt:
thephysiciansirishlady_w8189_750“Ach, I couldn’t be accepting yer charity,” she protested.

“It’s not charity. I’m alone and in want of a dining companion.”

She shook her head again.

“I don’t want to leave you here alone, and I am very hungry,” he insisted.

Her mouth tilted up into a weak smile. “I suppose I could use a bite.” She reached out and enfolded her hand in his.
****
The doctor led Keara into the dining car. Small tables with bench seats were set in rows by the windows with an aisle between. He seated her on one side of a table and took the bench opposite.

Another look at the opening chapter of my American Victorian romance novella.

Excerpt:
thephysiciansirishlady_w8189_750“Of course, Doctor.”

He handed the bag to Elliot, who held it out to his charge.

She grasped it and cradled it against her chest. Her eyelids fluttered as she glanced out the window. When she turned back, Elliot noted her clear hazel eyes. A tinge of color had returned to her face, but he suspected she needed food before the train arrived at York.

“I’m a bit hungry myself,” he said. “Why don’t we go to the dining car for a snack?”

“The dining car?” She shook her head. “Oh, no sir, I could never afford…” She broke off.

“I’ll take care of it.” He held out his hand.

Another look at my paranormal romance short story, originally published in the anthology, Northern Roses and Southern Belles.

Excerpt:
dreamingjosiecoverShe studied him. “Perhaps I should call the doctor.”

She rose, but he quickly grasped her hand. He didn’t close on air this time, but soft, warm skin.

“Please stay,” he said. “We need to talk.”

“All right. I’ll put a fresh bandage on your wound.”

He nodded. Anything to keep her with him. He watched as she wrapped the bandage around his raised thigh, then tied it off.

“You’ll be good as new before too long, so Doc says.” Josie rose and took the pan.

Kyle feared she was leaving again. His hand shot out to stop her.

Here’s another look at the opening chapter of my American Victorian romance novella.

Excerpt:
thephysiciansirishlady_w8189_750She bit her full lip. “I’ve relatives there. Someone will come for me.”

“I see.”

As new passengers stepped down the aisle, the young woman half rose. “I should be getting back to me seat.”

“You’ll do nothing of the kind, Miss.” He held her arm pressing her back down. “I’ll see to your care until we arrive at York. Then your relatives can take you home.”

“But I need me bag.” Her gaze drifted toward the seat she’d vacated.

Elliot signaled the conductor. “Could you bring me the young lady’s bag, sir?”

After a two week break here’s another peek at the opening chapter of my American Victorian romance novella.

Excerpt:

thephysiciansirishlady_w8189_750A loud growl rose from her gut. Her lips quivered into the semblance of a smile. “Just a wee bit hungry, ’tis all. I’ll be fine.”

Elliot frowned. “Tell me, when did you last eat?”

“I—ah, I can’t be sure.”

Hoping he didn’t appear forward, Elliot stroked her hand. “You’re so cold, Miss. Are you sure you’re not ill?”

She shook her head. “No, sir. ’Tis fine I’ll be once I get to York.”

“You live in York? Is someone meeting you at the station?”

Another look at my short paranormal romance available for only 99 cents.

Excerpt:
dreamingjosiecoverHer scent and feather-light touch caused an embarrassing reaction. He glanced down, wondering if she’d noticed, but she concentrated on his thigh.

She expertly cut away the bandage, and Kyle stared at his leg. Stitches covered a long, pinkish scar.

“What happened?”

Josie glanced at him and frowned. “Surely you remember being shot.”

“Shot!”

“In the cornfield.” She bit her lip.

“I – no! I wasn’t shot. I…”

“It’s all right. I’ll take care of you.” She lifted a towel from the basin and started cleaning the wound. “We have to keep it clean to prevent infection.”

“This doesn’t make sense. I was never shot.”

Since I own the rights to this story, originally published in a Civil War romance anthology put out by The Wild Rose Press, I’m considering expanding the story into a full-length novel. If you’re enjoying the excerpts from this short e-book, based on true stories of Civil War reenactors who believe they were soldiers in a past life, let me know what you think.

Next peek at the opening chapter of my American Victorian romance novella.

Excerpt:
thephysiciansirishlady_w8189_750The conductor nodded, then strode ahead to assist new passengers to board.

“You’ll be fine, Miss. I’m a physician. It seems you fainted in the aisle.”

“Fainted?” she sputtered.

“Yes.” He glanced at the station. “Did you wish to disembark here?”

“’Tis to York I be needing to go.” She leaned forward clutching her stomach.

Elliot studied her. “Are you ill?”
