Iâ€™m starting a new column for my blog entitled â€œFeatured Book of the Weekâ€. If youâ€™ve got a book you want featured, please let me know in the comments below and Iâ€™ll let you know what information I need and how to contact me directly. Now without further ado, hereâ€™s this weekâ€™s featured book.
Today Iâ€™d like to tell you about a book that was launched on Wednesday entitled THREE: An Electric Eclectic Book, written by P.J. Roscoe.
THREE is a book of three supernatural short stories along with three character sub-plots from three of her paranormal novels, two of which have managed to get to the semi-finals of the Reader’s Favorite and Echoes one best e-book in the Paris book festival 2014.
A snippet from Ayleth, a character from Between Worlds
I heard the men ride out early that morning to patrol the boundaries, as there had been more talk of mercenaries venturing this far south, and Artorius would have none of it on his land. He fought long and hard to keep his people safe, and by patrolling frequently, him and his men had kept the murders and kidnappings to a minimum, so far. Though the talk of the castle was that a mean and cruel Saxon, Sagarus was close, and his greed for power would destroy all who stood in his way.
I was quenching my thirst when I heard the cry that Artorius had returned. I gave it no thought until Merek came to find me moments later, and begged me to attend a young woman they had rescued from mercenaries. The blood spatters on his face told me that they had succeeded in killing the enemy, but just how much damage had the woman endured was unknown, and with a nod, I picked up my herb bag and instructed him to fetch ladies to help in her care. Warm water, and lavender was required if she had been abused in a foul manner, along with honey, witch hazel, warm and cold compresses, and salt water. I gathered all of this together, and made my way towards the guest bedroom where she had been placed.
I arrived a little breathless, and froze in the doorway. Two ladies were attempting to undress her carefully. The young woman had been whipped, and her back was bloody and bruised. She was barely conscious but I watched as she sipped water from a goblet, held by Brunhilda, while Evelyn gently pulled a thin blue dress off her unresisting shoulders. The dress is no more than rags having been torn by hand and cruel whip, but I recognize its style, and my breath catches in my throat. I see the sandals lying on the floor and then, on looking back at the woman, I see the tattoos, and know without any doubt where she has come from.
