Dreamcaster – fantasy romance extract

Posted February 13th, 2015 by pj and filed in new releases

Just published, with the entire series of four stories available free on Kindle Unlimited: Dreamcaster, a Fantasy Romance

 

Maybe I’ve been watching too much Game of Thrones, but for my new four-part erotic romance serial I’ve turned to High Fantasy: a world of magic and dreams, of adventure and romance…

Dreamcaster (A Fantasy Romance), Part one by Ruby FieldingWith her home city occupied by brutal invaders, Marla is a young woman scraping to get by on the fringes. Struggling to keep a low profile, she has only tantalizing memories of a past that was very different. Memories and dreams… Who is the mysterious man who comes to her in those dreams, and why is Marla being hunted down?

A story of magic, mystery, romance and brutality in a war-torn fantasy world where love lies in tatters and one woman may hold the key.

**Dreamcaster is published in the short serial format, with each of the four instalments available free via Kindle Unlimited and Kindle Select**

Immediately, she felt exposed. At any moment she expected the thunder of hooves, the shout of pursuers, the thud of a spear striking between her shoulder-blades.

But no. By some miracle, she kept going.

She reached the first steep incline of compacted waste, lost her footing and flew headlong into the mess. Rolling onto her side, she pushed herself back to her feet and scrambled up the slope. When she reached the top, she threw herself over the summit, took the landing on her arm and shoulder and then started to tumble down the far slope, now hidden from view from the village.

The middens formed an expanse of mounds, some as high as houses, like foot-hills to the city. Here, Marla could keep out of sight of the settlement and the raiders, steadily putting distance between her and them.

Finally, she dared to hope.
