Here is a sneak peek of a work in progress, a historical western romance:


Hannah reached for the shotgun she’d shoved into the holster on the saddle and swung it backward toward the man on her heels. She tried to aim carefully with the unsteady effort of the horse beneath her. She squeezed off a shot, missing the man. When she tried again, he had gained on her, right beside her on his own mount. The gun was kicked out of her hand and she grasped wildly at the reins, fumbling to maintain her balance. Somehow, despite her best efforts, she was thrown from the horse, her breath whooshing out of her on impact.

When she landed, she heard a loud crack, felt her bones crush. The rush of pain brought a scream from her, and tears rushed to her eyes, streaming like tracks into her dark brown hair. Her pursuers were behind her, heard one jump from his horse and run toward her. One glance forward told her that Jade had gotten away, was galloping back in the direction of the house. She would find her own way. Her mare was safe. She hoped Granger was too. But, the taste of fear choked her, and the pain, each stab ripping through her shoulder, was too much. Hannah felt dizzy and weak.

The sound of galloping horses died down and more footsteps approached. She was outnumbered, as good as dead without a weapon of some kind. Courage and pride were the only things she had left. Gritting her teeth against the pain, she slowly eased to her feet, struggling in the long blue skirt she wore over a white blouse. Dirt smudged her skin and clothes and her hair was straggly with her unruly brown curls. She turned to face the enemy.

There were four men who slowly approached, as if wary that she’d attempt anything with the way she’d tried to outrun them before. The one in front, who’d knocked her off the horse, wore a lopsided grin and carried the stench of unwashed flesh. She wrinkled her nose at his approach. Then she became aware that they all wore uniforms. Soldiers. But the way the man looked her over caused a sick churning in her stomach. No, she couldn’t trust any of them to be honorable.

“Well, boys, did you expect to see a pretty thing way out here this afternoon?”

There were murmurs of agreement and she clenched her teeth on the rise of fear.

“Now, don’t you try anything, you hear?  If you’re good, we’ll make it nice for you, sweetheart.”

She trembled as he approached her, fought her fear as best as she could, but to no avail. There were simply too many of them.

He took hold of her waist, dragging her against him. “You’re a little spitfire, aren’t ya?  You ain’t afeared of us, eh?”

She wouldn’t give him the pleasure of a response. It was likely her terror would only intrigue him more.

“That there girl’s bound to have a man around, Chester.”

“Quit your bellyaching, Sanders. This one might have a man, but he’s done gone to war, I’d say, or she wouldn’t have been out by herself.”  He ran his index finger along her cheek.

She stiffened, jerking her face away from his touch.

“Now, now. You’d best behave. I warned you of that.”

She was sickly aware of his arousal through her dress, and she prayed he wouldn’t act on it.

“Now, me and my men have been traveling a while, and we wouldn’t mind a good meal and a nice place to sleep.”

Hannah doubted that was all they wanted. By the lascivious looks they all cast on her person, each one of them meant her harm.

“I’m…not sure that’s possible.”

“Oh, really?”

She nodded. “You see, I barely have enough for myself.”  It was the truth. Since Thomas had died, she’d lost some weight because of what little she had to eat. And it wasn’t for lack of trying to find the resources. They just weren’t there.

“Well, is that so?  I suppose then you’ll just have to work for yours.”

She clenched her teeth on a rise of anger. If the man thought that would let him lay a hand on her any further than he was at the moment, he was dead wrong. She’d find a way out of this, escape if she had to and never let him touch her. She’d never killed a man before, but she imagined if she was pushed far enough, she might have to. “Bastard,” she ground out.

“I told you that you had to be nice. Now you’ve gone and done it.”  He lowered his lips to hers, trying to force his tongue in her mouth. Then, suddenly he reared back, with a gasp.

There was blood on his lip. She’d bitten him.

As his face grew red with a rage she had never witnessed, she struggled to get away, knew the worse was about to happen.

Without warning, he backhanded her and she went sprawling on the ground.

Afraid if she stood up, he’d try again, she rolled to face him and rose up slightly on her hands and knees. From her vantage point, he was angry. She knew no matter what she did to him, he would do something to make her regret biting him. A desolate ache gripped her heart. Not only was she outnumbered, she had been too brave. And without a weapon. It was foolish.

Nausea rose up her throat, and she fought the sick flavor.

“Show her who’s boss, Chester.”

“Yeah, she don’t know how good she has it.”

“Give her a taste of your power.”

The urgings of his men increased her queasiness to a point where she gagged, gasping.

Chester stalked up to her, grabbed her by her hair and hauled her to her feet.

She screamed, trying to pull away from the sharp stings of pain. Tears brimmed in her eyes.

“You shouldn’t have messed with me, bitch,” he muttered into her ear. He ran his hands over her dress, hiking it up until he found her pantaloons. He ripped those off her, the high-pitched rend of fabric spelling out her fate, then slowly caressed her naked backside.

Crying, moaning incoherently, she tried to wriggle out from under him, but his hold was too strong. “Please,” she whispered. “I didn’t mean…I’m sorry. I—”

“Too late, girlie. You’re just going have to deal with the consequences.”

On one knee, the man forced her over it. Without warning, he slapped his hand hard against her buttocks.

She cried out both from pain and the shame of it.

“Now, if I was any kind of gentleman, I’d warm you up a little before I sodomized you.”

Faintness and fear choked her, had her gasping for air. He wouldn’t. He…couldn’t.

“But, I’m not really a patient man, am I, boys?”

They howled in laughter as he drew her off his knee, stood her up straight and fumbled with the buttons on his pants while holding her firm at the waist.

Her whole body shook with abject horror, and tears consistently ran down her cheeks. “Please…I won’t tell anyone what happened. Just go.”

“You can’t tell anyone, girl. You’re in the middle of nowhere.”  Just as his trousers dropped, there was a loud thud and the men started yelling.

Free to move, Hannah turned to see the man fall over to the ground, a knife planted in his chest. Stunned, she smoothed down her dress, and then stood in shock to see that the other men had arrows sticking out of them. One by one, each of the men sank to the ground with a thump, stirring up clouds of dust.

Suddenly, a new rider came barreling down towards her on his horse and she screamed, raising her arms over her eyes. Would he kill her too?  He took hold of her outstretched arm and swung her up before him on the horse, riding in the opposite direction from the ranch.

Seated in front of him, she couldn’t see the rider. But his muscled arm pressed against her middle and she sensed the warmth of his body as she was forced to burrow into him. It was a heady sensation. She was more aware than ever of the fact that a strong yet lean man held her and she wasn’t disgusted by his touch. Despite the dust kicking up from the horse’s hooves, she smelled a pleasant, wild musk. Not to mention the fact that beneath her dress, her skin was completely bare. Shaking off her foolishness, she focused on the ride. The constant galloping of the horse brought back the nausea she’d felt before as well as a reminder of the pain that originated in her shoulder. She wondered who the man was. Had he rescued her from those soldiers because she was in trouble, or because he wanted her for himself? The latter made her tremble violently.

Would the terror of the afternoon never end? Might she ever be safe again?
