'Tis The Season for Daughter of the Wind
10/26/2009 4:14:38 PM
Yesterday, my husband, art major daughter, and I drove through the Shenandoah valley and Allegheny Mountains on a photography tour. Seeing the breath-taking ridges in their autumn glory reminded me of my historical light paranormal romance, Daughter of the Wind, the season and setting for this story.

****
Autumn, 1784: A tragic secret from Karin McNeal’s past haunts the young Scots-Irish woman who longs to know more of her mother’s death and the mysterious father no one will name. The elusive voices she hears in the wind hint at the dramatic changes soon to unfold in her life among the Scot’s settled in the mist-shrouded Alleghenies. Jack McCray, a wounded stranger who staggers through the door on the eve of her twentieth birthday and anniversary of her mother’s death, holds the key to unlocking the past. Will she let this handsome frontiersman lead her to the truth and into his arms, or seek the shelter of her fiercely possessive grandfather? Is it only her imagination or does something, or someone, wait beyond the brooding ridges—for her?

Excerpt:

The strange awareness inside Karin grew, like a summons urging her to an untamed place.

Jack ran fading eyes over Karin. “Paca tamseh,” he said, and sagged more heavily against Grandpa.

“Indian words,” someone hissed. “I heard ‘em.”

Karin shrank back from the man, but Sarah grabbed her arm, pulling her forward with a steely grip. “Can you blame him for knowing their speech after all these years?” She jerked Karin onto her knees and they knelt by the newcomer. Loosening her grip, Sarah wrapped her arms around his neck. “My poor boy.”

Heart racing, Karin hugged the crock. She looked to her grandfather. “I never knew she had an older son.”

“Jack was eight when Shawnee captured him twenty years ago. Any son of Sarah’s is welcome in my house and the settlement,” Grandpa said with a look, daring any to object.

None did. At least, not aloud, although Karin expected there’d be plenty of talk behind their hands.

“You told me Jack was dead, Mama,” Joseph said.

“I thought he was. Praise God he’s back.”

“How did he know where to find you?” Uncle Thomas asked. “You weren’t a McNeal when he was taken.”

Neeley clucked. “Never mind that now. We’ve a wounded man who’s been welcomed home with lead shot.”

Jack fluttered his eyes and looked to Karin. His gaze drew her almost against her will. She leaned toward him. “Someone seeks you, Shequenor’s dahnaithah.”

The message rippled through her. And she knew—his was the inviting summons in the wind.

****
Excerpt from Chapter Two

Autumn 1784, The Allegheny Mountains of Western Virginia, the Scots-Irish

Jack McCray, as he’d been known before his capture and still was in some parts of the frontier, had a vague awareness of the astonished folk gathered around him. He caught himself fading in and out of consciousness and fought to remain alert.

He would’ve preferred a bed made up before the hearth, but the two McNeal men half-carried him through the parting host and into one of the back rooms. Hard-won instinct warned him to stay awake, though lethargy weighed him down. This blast in the night came on the heels of a hellish journey through the mountains.

The pain in his shoulder roused him to greater awareness as they hoisted him onto a bedstead curtained in checked maroon cloth. Ages ago, he’d slept in a bed, but not one with feather ticking, sheets, and his head cushioned on a bolster with pillows. If it weren’t for the gnawing ache he might’ve thought he’d died and gone to heaven.

He closed his heavy eyelids, opening them again to find the candle in the iron holder on the bedside alight. Another candle glowed from the top of the washstand. The dancing flames cast long shadows on the plastered log walls and the faces hovering above him.

This definitely wasn’t heaven.

His mother’s imposing husband, John McNeal, stood over him with grudging acceptance in his keen blue eyes. Mister McNeal’s strapping son, Thomas, appraised him with narrow-eyed skepticism. If Jack were able-bodied, there’d likely be a reckoning with these two formidable males—might still be.

Joseph swam into Jack’s vision. Little brother regarded him as though not fully persuaded he wasn’t a spirit. Ah, but Joseph is the ghost, the image of our big auburn-haired father, Jack thought.

A pang knifed through him. If his mother were remarried, then his father no longer lived. Not that he begrudged her bettering her lot with the McNeals, but his father had been a fine man. Jack faintly recalled his even temper and hearty laugh, and he’d been a crack shot, a skill Jack had inherited but failed to use tonight. He hadn’t gotten off a single volley at his attacker, the sneaky bastard.

Joseph slipped Jack’s buckskin pouch and powder horn from his injured shoulder. He laid them on the bedside table along with his tomahawk and slid a strong arm beneath his neck. “Sip this,” he said, tilting his head as he held a mug to his lips.

Jack gratefully swallowed sip after sip. The brandy warmed his raw throat and he prayed it would numb everything else. “Thanks, little brother,” he said hoarsely, and struggled to sit up.

He winced at the pain, but couldn’t just lie here. “I’ve a mount—needs tending.”

“Are you daft, Jack?” Joseph said, pushing him back down onto the mattress. “I’ll see to your horse in a shake.”

“Stallion—take care—” he warned through gritted teeth.

Joseph held him still. “I know about horses.”

Jack chafed to think of such a valuable animal left to stand out in this foul weather. Then John McNeal drew a wicked looking knife and gave him something else to worry over. Jack could only hope the older man still retained the full use of his sight as he sliced through his bloody sleeve, spoiling his favorite shirt—damn, his lucky shirt. Well, he was alive, wasn’t he?

John’s gruff voice intruded on his mute protest. “Sarah, sit you down before you drop. Neeley’ll wash the wound.”

Head in her hands, Jack’s mother slumped onto a stool at the end of the bed. The poor woman couldn’t cease to weep and seemed on the verge of collapse. His conscience goaded him, a rather unfamiliar, disagreeable prodding. Clearly, she’d held him dear to her heart all these years, while his memories of her were dim. Nor had he made any effort to return sooner.

Jack slid his eyes over the people hovered about him in search of the angel he’d sighted earlier and spoken to briefly, but she seemed to be keeping her distance. Some females took time to grow on him before he found them pleasing. Not this fresh beauty. Her face and slender figure grabbed him the instant he’d spotted her.

It crossed his clouded mind that he’d frightened her and must make amends if he hoped to have another word, or anything else, with this rare creature. Of her heritage, there could be no doubt. It was stamped in her face and coloring, but the bewilderment in her blue-gray eyes betrayed her ignorance.

The old matriarch called Neeley bustled in like a busy hen. She bore a steaming basin of what Jack supposed, from the herbal scent wafting in the mist, was a medicinal wash. “Thomas, see Sarah gets to bed and brew her a cup of betony. That’ll calm her,” Neeley directed.

Thomas helped his stepmother to her feet. “Come on, Sarah. You’ll do better with a rest and some tea,” he said, and guided the unsteady woman from the room.

Neeley set the white porcelain bowl on the washstand. She squinted down at him and then gestured with bent fingers at the girl peering from behind John’s bulk. “Karin, come closer. You’re my hands, lass.”

Her eyes, too, Jack suspected. Looking past her, he watched in fascination and relief as Karin edged nearer the bed. He much preferred her to tend his injury, but if he spooked her she’d bolt like a skittish mare. Teeth clenched against the pain, he tried to appear unthreatening. Maybe he could entice her closer.

Mister McNeal cut away the last of Jack’s sleeve and slid his eyes over him without a flicker of expression. He handed the bloody cloth to Joseph. “Toss this in the fire and go see to his horse. We’ll tend your brother.”

Joseph hesitated, loathe to leave his long-lost sibling, perhaps. No. His eyes shifted protectively to Karin with more than a trace of yearning in their depths. So, that’s how the land lies, Jack surmised, wondering if she felt the same about Joseph and annoyed that he cared if she did. Why should he give a damn who she favored?

“Karin will bear up. She’s seen worse,” John assured the reluctant young man.

“So have I,” Joseph muttered, and turned on his heels.

This left John McNeal, old Neeley. Karin still hung back. Evidently Neeley was in her glory now. Dipping the towel in the aromatic water, she lit into Jack.

“What the—” he jerked and nearly swore.

The old woman didn’t falter and sponged the blood from his arm and throbbing shoulder. No doubt she tried to be careful, but failed. “John, you’ll want to be taking this lad’s wet clothes off him before he catches his death,” the zealous woman advised.

Jack balled his hands into fists under her ministration. “Not just yet,” he intervened, unwilling to drive Karin away. The modesty he sensed in her would surely balk at such a manly display of bare flesh.

Unexpectedly, the timid girl walked to his side and gazed down at him with pity in her eyes. And what eyes, like a troubled sky, he mused, between barely contained groans.

A wince crossed Karin’s expressive features as if she, too, were in pain. “Let me see to him, Aunt.”

Neeley gave a nod. “I’ll fetch fresh water.” Dropping the crimson rag in the bowl, she sloshed from the room.

Karin took a clean linen towel from the rod above the washstand. “Never fear. I shall be gentle, sir.”

Jack hadn’t been called sir ever and it bemused him that this hesitant maiden fretted over his emotional state. Someone, perhaps his mother, had brought her up to be a lady. “I’m sure you will, miss.”

She dabbed his shoulder dry, then dipped her small hand into the pungent crock. Pursing rosetinged lips, she smeared the aromatic paste on his wound. “I’ll give the salve a while to work before I dig the ball out and stitch you up. Ever had woundwort, sir?”

“Dulls the pain right well,” Jack managed, hiding a grimace. Even her soft touch stung like the devil, but he wouldn’t push her away for anything.
