Wildfire by J.D. Wright


Isabelle took another sip and sat her goblet down, looking around at her

children. Xavier looked miserable and tired. Tristan appeared bored and Rianne

seemed ready to flee at any moment. Seeing no better time to share her news, she

cleared her throat.

“It has been several weeks since we’ve all shared an early meal together,”

she said. “And I know that you have much more important matters to attend to so I

will not keep you long.”

“We’re here for as long as you’d like, Mother,” Tristan said, earning a sharp

glare from his brother across the table.

“Actually, the seamstress is on her way here to fit me for a new gown,”

Rianne said, hoping it may excuse her. However, her mother paid her no mind.

“I have some news to share with you and wanted to do it in private. I would

prefer your father be here, but I suspect this time is as good as any.” The queen

paused for a moment to make sure that she had their attention. Then she turned to

her daughter and continued.

“Rianne, your father has received a proposal for your hand in marriage from

King Carneath.”

“King Carneath?” Rianne asked.


“I don’t understand. I didn’t think King Carneath had a son.”

“He doesn’t,” Tristan said, frowning. He realized immediately what his

sister had yet to understand.

“Then, who am I supposed to ma—” She stopped, finally grasping what her

mother was trying to say. “You mean him, the king? Don’t you?”

“I do,” her mother replied.

“But Carneath is over twice my age! Father would never consider such a

proposal.” Rianne was sure of it.

“He is considering it.”

“That simply cannot be true! What does he want with a new wife anyway?

His first wife had given him several daughters before she died. Right?”

“Three of them,” Tristan added.

“Precisely!” Rianne shouted. “Why would he need to remarry?”

“I suppose he wants a son. Or perhaps he is lonely. It is also possible that he

wants a mother for his children. Honestly, that is something I cannot answer,”

Isabelle said, keeping calm.

“Mother to his children? I am only a few years older than those children,


“I find it hard to believe that Father would consider this proposal, as well,”

Tristan said. “What could we possibly gain from the arrangement?”

“I have yet to be informed of the details, but I gather it involves acreage of

Carneath land to the north, to expand our orchards.”

“Orchards? Is that all my future is worth? A few acres of land to plant more

trees? We already have more trees than people in this wretched place.”

“Rianne,” her mother warned. “Your tone is unwelcome at my table.”

“My tone? What about my happiness? Is that unwelcome, too?”

Unable to control her emotions, Rianne stood and excused herself. She

turned away from her mother and walked, quickly, back into the castle. She had

made it all the way to her room before Tristan caught up with her. He found her

curled up on the window seat, crying.

“Go away!”

“I know it may not seem like it right now, but everything will be alright.”

“Is that supposed to comfort her?” Xavier said, entering the room and

closing the door behind him.

“What am I supposed to say?” Tristan said, standing beside the bedpost. “If

Father approves the proposal, there is nothing anyone can do about it.”

Xavier shook his head at his brother and sat beside Rianne, who crawled

over to cry on his arm.

“It isn’t fair. Tristan is to marry a princess who is young and beautiful. The

same age as I am, even. And I have to marry an old man!”

“For all we know, Tristan’s princess may be ugly,” Xavier teased. “With a

pig nose and warts all over. Hell, he hasn’t seen her since she was a baby. She

could be a real hag of a lady.”

Rianne sat up, chuckling. Her light brown hair that had been pinned atop her

head was now falling down and her perfect porcelain skin was blotchy from


“I probably won’t even get to see her if I am married before their wedding,”

Rianne frowned. “This entire idea is ridiculous! There are plenty of eligible women

in the realm. Junacave, Moorine, Veyace. Why doesn’t he marry one of them?

Why me?”

“The Princess of Junacave just became the queen, so she is no longer a

prospect, I suspect,” Tristan said. “Moorine is on the other side of the Valerian

Mountains, so Carneath land would be of no use to them. And the daughters in

Veyace are still quite young.”

He looked up to see his brother and sister scowling at him.

“Constantly, the deliverer of unhelpful thoughts,” Xavier mumbled.

About the Author:
Writing has always been a hobby of mine, beginning as a young child. It was a way to cope with losing my father at seven years of age. I started with poetry and was featured several times on the amazing poetry blog, Autumn Leaves, by Sondra Ball. My love for poetry soon led to writing songs in middle school and beyond, which I still do occasionally. Music has always been an important part of my existence, so writing songs came naturally to me. In high school, I started my own novel, however, life got in the way and I never finished it.
Fast forward many years later and I find myself married with four children, absorbed in my busy life with commitments to my family, work, school, church, and charities, among other things. One day I came across my old binder, with notes from my first novel, and it was with those notes that I conjured up the elusive Everealm.
I write to please readers such as myself, who have a love for fantasy and romance, but like a little danger and sex in their reading. I wrote the book with a mature audience in mind, who can appreciate a hearty imaginary world with magic and the unknown, but want more than fluffy love stories with wizards in them. They want the romance, magic, and danger, all wrapped into one.

After five seasons of snubbing suitors and making small talk, Lady Kitty has seen all the ton has to offer…and she’s not impressed. But when Kitty’s overbearing father demands she must marry before her beloved younger sister can, she proposes a plan to the handsome duke. Kitty’s schemes always seem to backfire, but she knows this one can’t go wrong. After all, she’s not the least bit tempted by Sebastian, is she?

The Vampire, The Handler, and Me by Eileen Sheehan




“My name is Nevi, Nevi Sharpe,” he said with a deep, sultry accent. “May I ask

with whom I have the pleasure of sharing scratch-off tickets?”

I wanted to answer him but I was still stuck on stupid. I opened my mouth to speak

and absolutely nothing came out.

How embarrassing.

How ridiculous.

How mortifying.

He was just a man, after all. What was my issue?

I just couldn’t move past the sense of magnificence that permeated the air around

him. It was both electrifying and nerve wracking.

“You have a phone call,” blurted the bland voice of Miss Congeniality as she

approached my newly discovered god-man with a cordless phone.

“Please excuse me,” he murmured in my direction as he snapped the phone from

the clerk’s hand, obviously unhappy to be disturbed.

“Lizzy. Lizzy Ewing,” I forced past my lips as he stood up. “My name’s Lizzy


I could feel flames consume my cheeks when I realized how desperate my voice

must have sounded. He studied me with dancing eyes—momentarily forgetting his

annoyance about the phone call.“Nice to meet you, Lizzy Ewing,” he said warmly.

“Please excuse me.”

With that, he lifted the phone unceremoniously to his ear and disappeared through

a doorway behind the counter. I assumed it led to his office. At the faint sound of another

door shutting behind that door, I felt I assumed right.

The clerk shuffled through the array of lotto tickets spread out on the counter in

front of me with a notable smirk on her broad, acne infested face before looking up at me.

“That’ll be twenty-five dollars,” she stated smugly.

I stood there looking at her for a brief moment while it registered with me…I was

getting stuck with the entire bill of my not so private scratch-off tryst!
