Don’t go anywhere. Elaine sent Extras!!!!!

I wanted to share a Valentine excerpt with you, but I don’t really have one.  How about this unedited excerpt from my upcoming Astraea Press release The Enchanted?  This is the opening scene.  The Enchanted is a fantasy romance.

King Bowdyn sprang from his throne and paced around the room like a crazed tiger as his son knelt before the huge golden throne studded with crimson and emerald stones. “Perhaps you did not understand me, Alan,” he snarled. His hands clenched into fists held rigidly to his side. “This is not a request, but a command. You will marry Lady Maybina before the next full moon has passed.”

Alan dared not raise his eyes from the floor. “Father, I do not…”

“Silence!” the king roared. “I have respected your wishes for three years now, but my patience is at an end. You will wed Lady Maybina as I have commanded.”

“Father, having married once for love, I have no desire to marry a woman whom I have never met! Can you not understand? Think of the love you share with my mother. Is it so bad that I desire the same kind of relationship?”

The king’s face turned purple, but he took a deep breath and returned to sit upon his throne. He wiped his face with a lace-trimmed handkerchief and growled, “I have never understood you. You insisted on marrying a commoner, a nobody, and now that death has released you from your vows you refuse to marry a woman of your own station.”

Alan’s heart thudded in his chest. How far could he push his father? With Bowdyn one could never be sure. “I am sorry to disappoint you.”

“The kingdom needs heirs. The wedding will proceed as I have planned.”

“Father…”

“Enough!” Bowdyn shouted. His eyes bulged with the force of his scream.
