Weather Witch by Janice Seagraves

One of the themes for this month is castles. I only have one story with a castle in it, Weather Witch. It's part of Persephone's Song Anthology. 



Blurb: Janice Seagraves takes us to Regency England where Lord Godfrey negotiates for a wife in "Weather Witch." When Meredith, the weather witch, storms in she provides Godfrey with interesting possibilities, but will she embrace a chance to let go of her past and find happiness for her future?

Excerpt (after Lord Godfrey helps Meredith save her son from kidnappers):


"Thank you." Meredith glanced sidelong at him. "For helping me."
.
"I think we make a great team." Lord Godfrey walked beside her. "After we wed, I think we should retrieve the bow of your father's ship. I have an alcove in my garden where we can place it. Then, when we go for our evening stroll, you can place flowers in front of it."
.
"That's very thoughtful, but I didn't agree to marry you." She strode faster, but kept her face turned away from him.
.
He trotted to keep up. He wasn't sure, but he thought she hid a smile. "There's a lovely beach beside my castle that can be reached by way of the secret passageway I told you about. The other way to get there is a bit of a walk, but worth it. I keep a sculpture of Poseidon there."
.
"You do?" She glanced at him.
.
"Yes, complete with trident. I thought he'd see it as a kindness and not send any rough winter storms to tear down my castle."
.
She snorted. "You're a fool."
.
He arched an eyebrow. "Now is that a nice way to address your betrothed?"
.
"I didn't say I was marrying you." She shook her head. "And my mother-in-law already told me she didn't agree to it either."

"That's not a no." He smirked.

Sounds like a wonderful story, Janice. Love the castle pic. Wow, talking about living dangerous. If the land beneath it crumbles...

Hi Jean,

That's the fun of writing romance. Getting the odd couples together.

Hi Melissa,

Thank you. :)

A castle sitting poised on a precipice and witches. . .what could be more dangerous . . .or more fun ;D

Hi Kim,

I think so too. :) My heroine has magic power from her blood line rather than being a practicing witch, although she does do a magical spell at one point.

Janice~
