I taking a break from snippeting from The Scholar's Heart for a bit because The Sorcerer's Guardian, the last of my former DSP titles to be rereleased, will be back out in the world, and it has a gorgeous new cover, so it seemed like time to share from this book. The Sorcerer's Guardian is an opposites attract fantasy romance between an arrogant sorcerer and a loyal guard captain sent on a mission for the crown. (And along the way they will be stranded by a storm and there's only one bed...) Today I'm sharing the very beginning of chapter one, as Captain Loriot makes his weary way home.
As afternoon waned into evening, Loriot approached his house on Dove Lane. Weariness dragged at him with each step. He hadn’t slept more than a few minutes in the last few days, and now that the crisis had passed, he felt the fatigue down to his bones. But the lack of sleep was worth it for the good outcome of the situation.
He trudged up the few steps to his front door, its rich blue color recently freshened, and let himself in. The key turned smoothly in the lock, and the magical protections on the house recognized him as belonging, allowing him inside. He shivered, even though he didn’t feel anything as he crossed the threshold; perhaps someone with a Talent would, but he had neither Talent nor any sensitivity to magic.
