Below is an short excerpt from 'Royalist Rebel' my 17th Century Biographical novel scheduled for release in early 20123 by Pen and Sword Books
‘It is a gentlemens' club,’ she lowers her voice, despite there being no one but myself to hear. ‘The members take an oath as Royalists, and swear to further the cause.’
‘Further -? You mean they work against Parliament in secret?’
She shrugs, but my insistent gaze finally penetrates her veneer of reluctance. ‘They call themselves stonemasons. Do not look at me like that, Betty, besides,’ her plump shoulders rise in dismissal. ‘I said it was secret. Why would they discuss something like that with a mere woman?’ Her light laugh is unconvincing.
I push Sir Lionel to the back of my mind, enthralled by this talk of secret societies. ‘Is that why Robert Moray is a prisoner, because he is a spy?’
‘Oh, dear, I shouldn’t have mentioned it, your father-’
‘Father is a member?’
That wasn't so bad, and I got a plug in!!!
