"The Gauntlet" — Short Story #0.5 in the Cassandra Palmer series by Karen Chance.

Synopsis Edit

"The Gauntlet" is our contribution to the Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance 2. Set in the England of Elizabeth I, it features Kit Marlowe as a newly created vampire and Gillian Urswick, a witch with a penchant for highway robbery. That little hobby landed her in trouble with the Silver Circle, the self-appointed guardians of the magical community. They don't like thieves, particularly not when they're also members of the Druid covens that have been nothing but thorns in their side. Now Gillian has a date with a noose and only Marlowe has a chance of breaking her out of the Circle's high security prison in time. Note: "The Gauntlet" is the companion story to "The Queen's Witch", a short available for free on the author's website. ~ Take A Chance: Books
