So sit back and enjoy the snippets. I’ll be posting the buy link as soon as it is available!

Donald: Sons of Sagamore
The Pirates of Britannia Connected World

He surrendered his heart and would give his life for her to succeed.

Andrea Ricard, an inquisitive scholar of antiquities travels with her uncle to help him with his trade business. When she finds her mother’s family name on a piece of a map associated with the location of a rare relic, she is compelled to find it. Nothing will get in her way to unearth its secrets.

Donald MacDougall Tyler Eden has enjoyed carefree life, but over the last year he has found satisfaction working with his brother Hugh, who has a successful investment business. He has forged a close relationship with one of their business partners, Andrea’s uncle. On a visit to Hugh, Donald meets Andrea and is smitten. When Andrea finds that an antique in Hugh’s collection contains another piece to her mysterious map she is more determined than ever to find the relic. Donald is drawn into her adventure and volunteers to accompany her on her quest.

Andrea has only told Donald half-truths for fear he would not join her. The relic is surrounded by mystery and prophecy. A disgraced soldier with hopes of repairing his relationship with the king has found out about the relic and is just as determined as Andrea to secure it for himself.

Andrea and Donald’s belief in what’s right as well as each other will be tested on a journey filled with adventure and hardships as they race across the vineyards of the Champagne region in France, up the east coast of England to an ancient church in Bamburgh.

Can Andrea and her MacDougall warrior resolve the mystery, face the prophecy,
vanquish the villain… and find their happily ever after.

“No one should have this,” she said. “We must send it back where it came from. It’s the only way to destroy it.”

They went behind the boulder to the small alter. Andrea replaced the chalice in the niche. Donald took the stone he had removed and set it back in place. The water that had previously been a trickle began to flow faster over the rocks.

Their task done, they turned to leave. The room rumbled and shifted. The stone Donald set fell backwards onto the chalice shattering it into a thousand pieces. All that was left in the center of the niche was the chalice’s red stone.

“Quick.” Donald grabbed the vicar and pushed Andrea ahead of him. As they reached the narrow doorway, they heard a loud scraping sound. Donald pushed Andrea and the vicar out of the room.

He swung around in time to see the niche’s keystone give way. Its point crushed the red the stone and sent a burst of red dust into the air.
