And what of his love? Did she hasten to greet him as well?      
 
Then a white star amid a sea of silver and blue crested the ridge. His pulse thundered and he gritted his teeth in expectant hope. If his eyes did not deceive him, his lady rode Belial, a devilish white stallion that had thrown and all but trampled a dozen of his men. A falcon circled overhead, riding the same draft that toyed with the folds of her white gown.
    
What boon was this? Did she hold sway over wild beasts? To learn as much would not surprise him, for she had tamed his heart as well.

This is just beautiful! I am so thoroughly intrigued, and I honestly want to read more! What beautiful imagery you've created here. I can see her riding the bare back of the beast, enchantment pouring from her flowing hair and a haze of soft white light radiating from her milky skin.

When will this one be out? lol

AJ Nuest said...

Okay, I don't know whether to laugh or cry! You ladies have just made my day! Unfortunately, the book is not out yet. It's the second in a series my agent is shopping around right now. Let's just hope the editor who reads it has the same reaction as all of you! Thank you, my dear, dear friends!

Great imagery! Lovely use of language, very poetic, and yet she conquers dangerous beasts. I love the contrast.
