An Excerpt from Throne of Deceit!

The sound of hooves thundering down the main road rang in Elise’s ears. She jumped up from her spot on the ground. A summer breeze wafted through, sweeping ebony hair around her face as she peered downward.   Sure enough, it was an armored messenger, astride a horse, with a red banner in his hand. Elise raced through the garden to the road at the end of the grounds of Devynshire Castle. Bright sunlight cascaded through the trees, highlighting every ebony wave as she bounded down the grassy, poppy-littered hill. “Elise,” Lady Devyn, shouted after her, shielding her eyes from her spot on the blanket sprawled across the grass. “Where are you going?” “The messenger!” Elise shouted to her mother. “He’s here.” As she glanced over her shoulder, she caught a glimpse of her mother’s smirk, as she waved her on. At eighteen, this would be her last year of seclusion from the world. Today, she just wanted to be a young lady, fuss over what elaborate gown she would wear, and try her charms on handsome suitors from all over the realm.  Despite the fact that several eligible young men would be in attendance, her sights were set on only one—one very special prince.

You wouldn’t be here without a message,” she said, leaving the plush grass, to stand on the hard-packed dirt road that led through the forest and to town.  “Aye, I have a message for your mother,” he said. “It can’t be!” Forgetting decorum, she stood right before Flint and dug her hands into the bag.  Instead of scolding her, he chuckled. “All right! All right,” he said and pulled a cream-colored envelope with the Arundell seal of a golden lion. “You scoundrel!” Elise took the envelope, a smile spreading from ear-to-ear. He handed her another letter, and with a giggle, she ran back toward the castle.  “You’re welcome,” Flint shouted after her with a laugh. Looking over her shoulder, Elise shouted back. “Thank you!” She gathered her skirts in her hand and quickened her speed.
