Posts Tagged ‘Jareth First Lord’

After Viviane and Jareth return from Clan Belfort, Viviane struggles with her Talents. But she is not alone. Her nephew, Connell, the newly chosen heir of her home clan, is having troubles along the same lines. Partly because he doesn’t understand why he needs Talents. And partly because he misses his old friends from home.

At the Gather in Belfort, some of those old friends, jealous of who he has become, accuse him of cheating at a ring toss game. When they grab him and start to harm his friend Nelly, he reacts by using his Talent to protect her. He is sure his grandfather will be angry.

Let’s check in on Connell.

 

“But I wasn’t supposed to get into any trouble,” he explained.

“As far as I can tell, you didn’t go looking for trouble. Trouble came looking for you.”

By the time they caught up with the family, they were making their way toward the entrance

on the way to the manor.

“First Lord,” the guard called.

“Yes, Greg? What is it?”

“I’m sorry, sir,” Connell spoke up. “I was in a bit of trouble today.”

“Before he takes responsibility, he did nothing wrong, sir,” the guard said.

“Perhaps someone can tell me what happened,” the first lord said, looking around for someplace

to sit. Finding a bench close at hand, he sank down onto it. With a shake of his head, he looked

up at Greg.

Once again the man explained the situation, and once again emphasized that it wasn’t

Connell’s fault.

“Well, Grandson, if it wasn’t your fault, why would you take responsibility?”

“If Nellie hadn’t been with me, she wouldn’t have skinned her knee and been scared.”

“Did you do anything to warrant their accusation?”

“No, sir. Cheating is wrong. I just got lucky.”

“Did Nellie like the teddy bear?” his grandfather asked with a twinkle in his eye.

“Yes, sir. She’s naming him after me. But I used my Talents to keep her from getting hurt.

Was that wrong?”

“Connell, was there any other way to keep him from kicking her?”

“Um, no. Two of the other boys held my arms, and I couldn’t have reached her before she got

kicked.”

“Then you did well. How do you feel about your Talents now?”

Connell stood and pondered the question for a few moments.

“Think about it this way. When you are first lord, and someone comes with the intent to harm

either members of your clan or clan

property, wouldn’t you like to know you have the ability to do something about it?”

“Of course.”

“Are you beginning to understand the use for Talents?” he asked softly.

Looking deeply into the first lord’s eyes, Connell nodded. “Yes, sir. I am. But I still didn’t cheat.”

“I never thought you had, Grandson,” the man said seriously. “Let’s go clean up and see what we

have for dinner.”

If you can’t take the time off right, now, how about a literary vacation? Visit a place that exists only in the mind of a half-crazed author…

I have two series going right now. One is Esperance–a highland world full of magic, mischief, and romance. Book one introduces Jareth and Viviane and follows their courtship. Book two follows Viviane’s attempts to gain control over her blossoming psychic talents. And Book 3 tells of Morgan’s and James’ romance.

The second is Speranza–a futuristic world with shape-shifters of all sorts. Book one takes place on the pleasure world, Gambler’s Folly. The second follows Damiano and Karianna to Earth, where Dante meets his soulmate, throwing the whole family and wedding plans into chaos.

So if you can’t take a vacation right now, take a little time and visit one of these worlds. You’ll always be welcome.

Or perhaps magic, mischief, and mayhem…

Yes, Esperance is a magical place. And wherever you have magic, you have mischief and mystery. And sometimes mayhem as well.

Come with me to Esperance and meet some of my friends! I’m sure they’ll welcome you to their world.

Meet Jareth and Viviane, First Lord and Lady of Clan Brannach.

In Book 1, Jareth, First Lord, they meet, court, comfort each other through trying times, and after much emotional upheaval, marry.

In Book 2–Viviane, First Lady, follow Viviane’s story as she struggles to gain control over Talents no one expected her to develop.

And let’s not forget Morgan.

Book 3MORGAN–The Pixie and the Green Man. Introduced in the first book, Morgan is a shy young woman who comes from an abusive background. Changing clans during the Choosing, she thought to escape, only to be attacked in her new clan by an unwelcome suitor.

One of her rescuers, James Ferguson,  falls in love with her right there, battered and muddy as she is after her ordeal. But can he win her heart? Or will his family’s Talents scare her away, like they have the others?

. What Talents is James hiding, hoping to win her heart before baring his soul and his family’s secret? And what Talent does Morgan have that not even she suspects?

Come meet my friends in Esperance. They’re a friendly jovial bunch, with a penchant for practical jokes.

And don’t forget–never forget

Have do I see my world of Esperance?

“It was a beautiful day for an outing and Jareth was in a fantastic and infectious mood. Their path had taken them through the edge of the forest before heading up into the mountains. Shadows played hide and seek as the sun shone through the tree leaves. Shifting sunbeams lit gem colored wildflowers sparkling in reds and purples against the dark green of the forest. Reaching a chuckling stream, which leapt from a waterfall high above before following the mountain downward, they dismounted and made ready for a picnic. The water sparkled blue and violet in the sun, as mist from the cascade nourished the grass and moss turning it a lush emerald green.

Spreading a cloth on a huge slab of black shale next to the water’s edge, they unpacked the meat, cheese, and freshly baked bread the kitchen had sent with them, its aroma whetting their appetites. Jareth stretched out opposite her beside the shale table, smiling happily.

He was putting on his best performance today. Attentive, with an ease which shouldn’t be possible, he fairly swept Viviane off her feet. She didn’t know whether to beat a hasty retreat or stay and enjoy it. Like a schoolgirl on her first date, she was all blushes and too timid to meet his eye. She was still having trouble speaking, which he pretended not to notice.”

 

Sound like a good place to visit? Well come with me!
