#SundaySnippets, #WeekendWarriors, 'Dancing With Fate' - "what are you doing alone and away from home?"

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."

When Terpsichore, the Muse of Dance, is assigned to revisit the land of Wales, her task seems simple enough. She is unaware there is a hidden agenda. Before she can return to Olympus her path crosses that of the mysterious Myrddin, and her heart is lost. But Myrddin is promised to another. His mind is set on the dangerous task that lies before him, and the woman he has sworn to save. Nevertheless, he cannot deny the growing attraction between him and the beautiful stranger he meets along the way. 

 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.
