Hello fellow Snippeteers and readers. Welcome to my Weekend Warriors post. I'm continuing with another snippet from my fantasy novella, Dancing With Fate. Thank you to everyone who's been following my snippets so far.BACKGROUND:
Having fulfilled the mission set by Apollo, Terpsichore the muse of dance is preparing to return to Olympus when she meets the mysterious Myrddin. He invites her to share a meal with him and invites her to journey with him for safety's sake, being unaware of her origins and immortal status. He has revealed he is on a mission to rescue the woman he is betrothed to and who has been kidnapped by the lord of Castell Madog.

"And you?" he asked in turn, "what are you doing alone and away from home?"
She hesitated a moment, the brat slipped down around her shoulders; the firelight shone on her hair and turned it to flame.
"I...I had a task to do here, given me by my brother, now it is completed and I can return."
"Are you quite sure you'll be all right alone? Perhaps I could go some of the way with you?"
"No, thank you, there is no need. I wouldn't think of asking you to go out of your way, I will be in no danger, I assure you."
Myrddin nodded and poked the fire a little more. "We should get some sleep so we can leave early tomorrow."

Terpsichore and Myrddin face a deadly force that threatens to part them forever. Is she destined to lose the only man she has ever truly loved? Is there nothing she can do to save him? Finally, when all seems lost, in desperation she finds herself DANCING WITH FATE.
Other news: I'm excited that the first two books in The Destiny Trilogy (which I've featured here in Sunday Snippets.) were released in Audio this week. I've blogged about it in the post below this one.

I think he's a bit disappointed...ReplyDelete
Yep, P T - you're right, he is.Delete
So he is still coming along even if she said no?ReplyDelete
He wants to, but respects her wishes - however, things are about to change.Delete
Delaying tactics? What happens in the night?ReplyDelete
Ah, that will be revealed ...next week!Delete
He seems like a nice guy - he'd have a hard time accompanying her to Mt. Olympus though LOL. Enjoyed the excerpt...ReplyDelete
LOL - he is a nice guy - but he doesn't know where her home is - yet! Glad you enjoyed it, Veronica.ReplyDelete
I like their easy banter. Great snippet.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Karen xDelete
He's trying to be a gentleman, and she's determined to keep him away. Quite a dilemma. So, what will bring them together? Guess we have to wait.ReplyDelete
'fraid so. You may have to wait a little longer, depending on which excerpt I decide to post next week :)Delete
