December 17 ~ 21 Free on Amazon Kindle

Today on my blog fellow Wild Rose Press author,
 Tricia Schneider, talks about her book.

A Message from Tricia Schneider:

I’m so excited to share this news with readers: The Witch's Thief is the first book I've written to be offered for FREE on Amazon Kindle from December 17-21. I hope you get a chance to grab a copy! This is the third book in the Merriweather Witches, but the series set in Regency-era England can be read in any order. 
The Witch and the Wolf begins with Lillian Merriweather escaping the marriage machinations of her elderly uncle, a man who is obsessed with alchemy. Of course, she wasn't anticipating the blizzard that descended upon her. Luckily, she found refuge before she froze to death. Lord Jeremy North is a man cursed. He's already sent his staff on holiday so he can have the house all to himself, with the exception of his closest friend and servant, Amery. Together, they try to contain the savage werewolf, the beast that Lord North becomes during every full moon. Neither of them expect a woman knocking on the door, looking for protection. Who will protect her from the werewolf?

The Witch and the Vampire is Melora Merriweather's story and like her sister, Lillian, she is on the run from her alchemist uncle. She has in her possession a letter that was written to her parents before they died. Melora hopes the author of the letter will help keep her safe from her uncle's schemes. What she doesn't expect is a handsome man with no wife and a mysterious blood disorder that he lied about in the letter. It wasn't his wife who suffered. A wife who didn't even exist. Her search has brought her to a man who is nothing like she expected. 

And now, my newest release, The Witch's Thief, is about Basil Merriweather and his childhood sweeheart, Julia Grey. They were in love when they were young, but that ended the day Basil left home mysteriously. It takes ten long years for him to return. Things have changed in that time. Julia is his aunt's companion, living in his home and invading his library at night searching for a particular book. A spell book. One that could be dangerous in the wrong hands. He finds she's keeping secrets from even his aunt and he is determined to discover what she's hiding. But, can he do it without revealing his own secrets?        


Excerpt for The Witch's Thief: 

"What are you doing?" 

He ignored her frantic questioning. Instead, he blocked out the sound of her voice and raised his arms into the air at his sides, his fingers splayed out as he extended his senses to scan the area. His power eased out, like extensions of his fingertips, stretching into the corners of the room, seeking, searching for the source of the magic he sensed. 

It was here...somewhere. 

He had sensed it earlier on his arrival, but being that his aunt and siblings practiced magic on a regular basis he'd never given it a second thought. 

This room, however, stank with it. He smelled the odor, something strangely like sulfur... 

"A spell has been cast in this room," he muttered. A strange spell. Odd. A spell he'd never sensed before, something new. It felt off is some way he couldn't explain. Who would be working new magic of this kind in his home? And, in this room in particular. Aunt Petunia worked her spells in the privacy of her rooms upstairs, or sometimes in the gardens, but never in this room. And his siblings each, practiced in their own private settings, places where they could concentrate without the threat of being disturbed. A fairly difficult task with the number of people normally in residence at Merriweather Manor. 

He took a step closer to the center of the room where he sensed a surge of power. He shivered as coldness seeped into his skin. It wrapped around his arm, sinking into his flesh, right down to the bone. This was not right. 

The magic in his house was always full of warmth and gentleness. Goodness and love. This magic chilled him to the bone. His heart skipped a beat. There was fear, terror, pain. This spell was full of darkness.
