It's #WeWriWar Sunday, an opportunity for readers to get a peak at some wips. The genres range from erotica to science fiction. Today I am sharing eight more lines (+/-) from my upcoming release, Curse of the Healer. Enjoy :)
Lorccán whipped his damp hair away from his face, revealing a stern expression. “Diarmuid the Despicable.”
“Do not be calling him that to his face!” That’s all the lad needed. Offending such a powerful man was to be avoided at all costs. “Even if he is big, he is no threat to us. Your father invited him to come here, and ye know Sean would never put us in harm’s way.”
After the death of Brian Boru in 1014, a legend arose of a healer so great she could raise a man from the dead, with a power so strong it could make any warrior the next high king of Éire...and to steal it away from her, he need only possess her.
Fated to be a healer…
Aednat has spent her entire life training to be the great healer, knowing she must remain alone. When she meets Diarmuid, the intense attraction she feels toward him shakes her resolve to believe in such a legend. If she gives in to the passion he ignites in her, can she settle for being less?
Destined to be his…
Diarmuid of Clonascra is renowned for his bravery in battle. Only one thing daunts him: the prospect of taking a wife. The safest course would be to keep his distance from Aednat, the bold, headstrong healer who's far too tempting for his peace of mind. But his overking orders him to protect her from a group of craven warriors intent on kidnapping her to steal her power.
What starts as duty for Diarmuid quickly transforms into something more. Aednat's power might be at risk, but so is his closed-off heart.
