A brief excerpt of The King & His Queen
With sure and steady steps, Hemera made her way toward the stronghold gate. She stopped suddenly when the guards frantically began waving their hands for people to move aside, clearing the gate entrance. One guard waved quite forcefully at her and hearing horses’ hooves behind her, she quickly obeyed.
It could be only one person who demanded such attention—the King.
Hemera turned to see him bearing down on the stronghold and he was a sight to behold. He looked as though he was riding into battle rather than returning home. A deep scowl attempted to mar his fine features, but failed. His perpetual glare added a look of assured power. He was to be obeyed or else. His body, lean, though strong with muscle, exuded even more power. She had heard talk that he could snap a man’s neck with little effort and swing a sword with even less effort. She wondered if it was more myth than truth. His dark garments added to the mystery surrounding him, making him appear more sinful than righteous.
She wondered if he was truly either.
At this moment, though, she believed sinful was the correct choice.
His black stallion pounded the earth and the King leaned lower over his horse and to the side as he drew closer to her and when his arm shot out, she realized too late his intention.
His coiled arm snagged her around the waist, the strength of it rushing the breath from her and sending the armful of sticks she held flying.
