Saturday Sample - May 3, 2014

Welcome back to my Saturday Sample. I'm very excited to give you a taste today of the beginning of my Western Romance Novella, Faith and the Foreman, which is now available in the Timeless Romance Anthologies' "Old West Collection." A bank panic in 1893 has wiped out a great many fortunes, including that of our heroine, Faith Bannister.

A bell jangled on the horse-drawn street car outside as Faith Bannister folded the letter she’d been reading and rose to pace the room. After two circuits, she stopped before her cousin. “I am ruined.”

Clarissa Pembroke looked up from the bandage she was knitting and shook her head. “The news can’t be all that bad, dear. We’ve managed to survive the bank crisis fairly well thus far.”

Faith waved the letter. “The interest on my stocks is practically zero.”

“You should have told me. I must try harder to find employment.” Clarissa breathed heavily. “I can’t believe my usefulness as a nurse is over because of a few gray hairs.

I hope you enjoyed this tidbit from Faith and the Foreman. I'm thrilled that the Timeless Romance Anthologies' "Old West Collection" has been released!

Thank you for visiting. I love to read your comments, so if anything in the sample compels you to speak up, rest assured that I eventually read what you write and will reply, if needed. Questions? I'm open to them, too.

Please come back next Saturday for another sample. Thank you!
