Excerpt from Chapter Ten, "Wayward Son: Lineage Series, Book Four"

Here is an excerpt from Chapter Ten, "Wayward Son: Lineage Series, Book Four"

"The couple spent the rest of the night, as quietly as they could, making up for lost time. They were still loud enough in their passionate lovemaking that the slaves, stifling their giggles, knew exactly what was going on. Staci had been without Virgil’s physical attentions for so long, and he had been unable to have any dalliance with Naomi since they left the old homestead; their passion for each other was intense. Joshua Haskins was conceived that night."

Excerpt from Chapter Nine, "Wayward Son"


"After Jacob’s untimely death, Staci became despondent. It took a little over a year for her to come out of her melancholia and longer than that before she wanted anything to do with Virgil physically. Once she did resume marital relations with her husband, she quickly became pregnant again, but suffered a miscarriage before she even realized she was with child. She suffered two more miscarriages in the same manner over the next year."

Excerpt from Chapter Eight, "Wayward Son: Lineage Series, Book Four"

Here's a little something from Chapter Eight:


"Anastasia radiated beauty and poise in her off-white wedding gown. It was drawn in at the waist and a corset pushed up and amplified her bosom. It was not proper in those days for a woman to show cleavage, but it was normal for a woman to take great pains to accentuate her curves. The material was dotted with hand-stitched miniature rosettes of the same color as the dress, and her face was covered with a fine veil. Her bouquet consisted of summer flowers in blues, purples, and reds that contrasted wonderfully to the off-white material of her gown."
