I’ve been going on about all this birthday business for a couple of weeks. I wanted you to grow to love Lyndsay Tiller as much as I do. Because she is a fictional character, I can’t give her a gift so I will give one to all of you instead!
As promised, Noble Courage is #free today in honor of my heroine’s mother. I hope you are all in a reading kind of mood because the rest of the series is only .99 a copy! Now’s the time to grab your copies!
I have contemplated a passage that introduces you to this woman of strength and sacrifice. Here’s the one I chose from Noble Courage:
[Lyndsay] was collecting the laundry when she spied her daughter running, soaked to the bone. A sigh escaped her and she hefted the tub into the house where she deftly found a blanket and set it to warm by the fire. She turned when she heard the door open, hands on her hips, lips pursed, and beheld Aspen shaking like the day she was born. Her daughter’s lips were blue and she clutched a ball of fabric to her chest as if it was keeping her warm. A smile touched Lyndsay’s lips and she could not hold back the bubble of laughter that burst forth before she knew what came over her.
“I don’t know what happened to ya, but ya look a sight, girl!” she laughed.
“I f-fell in the s-stream on a-accident. I am s-sorry,” she managed between clacking teeth.
“Well, better get ya out of that dress ‘fore ya catch yer death. Come on, strip!”
Aspen did as she was bid and sat her gift on the table near the fire, letting the laces of her dress fall from her slim frame to the rushes on the floor. Her mother wrapped her in the warm blanket and had her sit for a cup of hot tea.
After I had written Noble Courage, I had a lot of questions concerning Vatric and Lyndsay. They wanted to hear their “story” and to figure out why they were the way they were. So in response to their questions, I wrote the first five stories of Tales of Elgolan. These stories were just extra reading to gain more insight on these characters. I love the days of Vatric and Lyndsay’s courtship. They have a sweet history that is sprinkled with heartache, as that period in time was harsh and unforgiving. It’s the glimmers of love that bring hope to people.
Love one another, forgive unconditionally, and live peacefully.
If you love the books, please feel free to leave me your thoughts on Amazon! It’s like giving me a giant hug! 🙂
