Majorly Sweet Saturday Samples — The Pirate Princess

Welcome to Marjorly Sweet Saturday Samples.

This sample comes from the opening paragraphs of my current WIP, The Pirate Princess.  Enjoy.

Lightning flashed across the sky in a muted glow that lit a wide area behind the cloud bank.  For a brief moment, Charlee saw her surroundings as if it were day.  She hated the light that illuminated the endless waves of her prison, of her torment, of her shame.

Pacing from the window, she closed her eyes and allowed her body to rock with the ship in the coming storm.  There were many storms at sea.  She never realized how many, and this one would be a tempest, indeed.

The squall pitched and tossed the great ship like a child’s wooden toy.  She steadied herself against the bed and didn’t flinch when the door flew open. 

Thanks for stopping by and Click here for more great Sweet Saturday Samples.
