Petir takes a rough tumble in the Connecticut woods, but awakens in the middle of old England. His instinct to freak out is tempered by the arrival of a fair maiden wearing a bow...and arrow. Throwing caution to the wind, Petir decides he has nothing to lose by pursuing Maid Rianne. But when she is captured by the enemy, a geek with no ability to defend himself must find a way to rescue the fair maiden.


Even though Rianne stood higher on the hill, Lord Petir still looked down as he gazed into her eyes. Her pulse leapt. His green eyes darkened with an awareness that matched her own.
Why was she fighting it? If she reached just a little bit, she would be able to taste his mouth again. It was so close, and the longer they stood there, the harder it was to resist the impulse. Was that her heart pounding so hard? Over an outlaw she had just met?
She tilted her head back the tiniest bit.
He lowered his the tiniest bit.
She sighed the smallest sigh and lightly tugged his shirt, guiding him toward her, reveling in the warmth of his arm around her back.
And still they stood there.
Ignoring her conscience, she leaned in, confirming the unspoken invitation. His breath was as ragged as hers, but he did not close the gap between them. What was he waiting for? She rose on her toes, bringing her lips a hair’s breadth from his. His sharp intake of air told her how much she was affecting him.
“You are betrothed?” he whispered.
“What?” she cried, pushing away from him.
“Watch it!” Lord Petir shouted as he teetered on his good leg.
Instinctively, Rianne grabbed for him again, this time inadvertently slamming his body into hers, propelling them backward. He dropped his crutch as they toppled onto the hill. The leaves swirled around them with a gentle swoosh that accompanied Rianne’s very unladylike “Oomph” as he landed on her.



I’m DEBORAH ANN DAVIS, and I write Quirky New/Young Adult Fiction with a Twist. I began writing when searching for inspiration for my 5th grade English Journal. Lo and behold, my world was full of funny tales just waiting to be told. It never occurred to me to pursue writing, not even when I discovered my flare for telling stories at college parties.

After a string of undergrad majors, I realized I could reach a captive audience EVERY DAY in the public school system. As you probably know, teenagers love to laugh, and what could be more entertaining than Biology, Earth Science, and Environmental Science? I jumped into teaching with both feet and loved it for 27 years. It came with an added bonus: Once teens know you like to laugh, they want to make you laugh. Go figure.
Twelve years after our first kiss, I reunited with, and married my childhood sweetheart. Together we coached our daughter's AAU Basketball Team, which swept States two years in a row. (Yay!) Then, for several years, our daughter and our money went to college.
During a particularly nasty bout of Lyme disease, I turned to Fitness to boost my Health, and to Writing to boost my Happiness.
Currently, I am a healthy and happy Educational Speaker and a Certified Personal Trainer who loves to write.
We presently reside on a lovely lake in Connecticut. When I’m not writing novels for my Love of Fairs series, I enjoy dabbling with living a sustainable life, dancing, playing outside, and laughing really hard every day. I also promote increasing movement throughout your day as Wiggle Writer in my Merry Meddling blog.
