Sample Sunday: Royal 1

To give you a taste of what’s in store, I’ll be sharing samples of my available books.

I’ll use the 7/7 Challenge (where authors post seven lines from page 7 of their WIP) as inspiration. I’ll be posting (approximately) 7 paragraphs of page 7 (unless they have spoilers, then I’ll choose the previous/next chapter) If more is needed, for context, then I’ll add more.

Royal, Book 1: A Royal Craving

BLURB

Poor and deaf, Spencer struggles to live in a new world. In search of hope, aged just thirteen, he defies the city and his parents, to visit the prophetess. After promises of a struggle between a path to death and a path to love, he’s left with a token of the risk he took.

Five years later, Spencer chooses a path that leads him straight into Prosper’s arms. Disfigured, the vampire King sees himself as nothing but a monster to haunt Spencer’s nightmares.

Can a simple human bring Prosper out of the shadows and back into a world that desperately needs his guidance?

7/7 SAMPLE

Lafayette scowled, as a hand appeared on his shoulder. They both jumped from surprise and looked up at the owner of the hand.

Spencer nearly dropped his basket when he saw the Vampire King, Prosper, standing beside the man he feared most in the world.

“Leave or suffer my anger,” the King demanded, with eyes burning the same blood red of his dreams.

“The King of Vampires,” Spencer muttered, too shocked to make sense of the sudden sensations coursing through his body.

Prosper turned a gentle smile on him and his insides shook, but this could not be fear…this felt far more terrifying.

The King’s face remained in shadow, both from the hat dipped over the left side of his face and the enclosed alley Spencer had passed through, trying to avoid the gathering crowds.

“The…what?” Lafayette asked, with a look of shock. He took off toward the festival crowds, leaving him alone with the King, who made his heart stutter and caused the oddest sensation in his belly.
