First -Final CoverExcerpt from Eve’s Amulet, Book 1:

“Miss Luebber. Well, ain’t you the big sugar?” Franz tipped his hat. His gaze roamed down the line of her form-fitting gauchos, his eyes lingering on the bodice of her cotton blouse.

“What the hell do you want this time, Franz?”

“I was jest wonderin’ where all yer purdy horses were at.”

“I sold nearly all of our stock before you could get your stinkin’ filthy hands on any more of them.”

“Now, that ain’t a polite way fer you to address a military officer, is it?” The lieutenant leaned against the saddle horn. “Why, accordin’ to the Republic of Texas, I got me a perfect right to confiscate yer stock. President Jones knows it’s better ta let some of his constituents lose a few horses and steers in exchange for military protection.”

“I’m sure the president doesn’t encourage the military to steal private property for personal gain.”

The lieutenant pushed up the rim of his hat and more dirt clumped in the creases of his forehead than his neck. “Why, I’m doin’ you a favor. The less you have, the less them Indians is likely ta steal from you. Y’all should be showin’ me how much you appershiate what I’m tryin’ ta do fer you.”

The heavy weapon remained steady in her hold. “Spare me your bullshit, Franz. You’re just a pathetic four-flusher interested in filling up your own purse.”

Hardened eyes locked onto the woman. “Corporal Boyce, McFaddin. Please help Miss Luebber here with that terrible heavy gun.”

    • Hi Jean,
      I wanted Carmena to be one who pushed past her fear despite the obstacles before her. Although she is not present in the book, she is spoken of by the other characters who confirm the type of woman she is. I wanted Mandy Ruhe to grow to emulate the positive qualities of Carmena. Thank you for visiting.

    • It was fun researching language from the 1800s. Some phrases were really off the wall, like a “coffee boiler,” which referred to a person who was lazy and would rather sit around a pot of coffee than do meaningful work. Also, the meaning of words have changed. Back then, “promiscuous” meant careless or reckless, as in having a promiscuous arrangement of weapons in the house. Thank you for visiting!
