Now that we are into book IV of [Stolen] Series, you will be introduced to many new characters.
The story starts with the past (yes…more into the past) to 1198, where we get to meet Jasmine and David, from where all the curses and witchcraft started.
If you know me as a person, besides being a writer, I am an art lover and history buff. So it is impossible for me not to include famous people from the past. In this instalment of [Stolen] Series, you will meet Cosimo de’ Medici — Prior of the Republic of Florence. What Florence is now — an art hub of Europe — is mainly because of Medici’s love of art. I have also introduced the Renaissance artist: Donatello, who happens to be in 1415. Both the characters shown in the novel are young gentlemen of the noble class who pay a visit to King Stefan.
“So you have never met him?”
“Of course not, Edward,” God! Why is he so gullible?
“But you will recognise Cosimo if you see him anywhere?” he asked. Still jealous!
“Ha!” I clapped in amusement. “If I recall, he must be twenty-five or twenty-six by now.” Pouting my lips, I continued, “Young enough to…”
“To what?” he snapped.
“To travel…” I mumbled. God! Such a jealous man! I wanted to say he was young enough to court me, or I was suitable enough for him, but my obsessed lover was sitting next to me. He had digested the thought of Steve in my life because Steve lived in another time, but I was about to meet Cosimo de’ Medici in a few weeks. I couldn’t even share this excitement with anyone. No one would be able to understand. I wish I could write a letter to my mother, as we both were obsessed with the Medici and their commissions.
“What does he look like?”
“Hmm,” I thought for a second, recalling his portrait. “He has curly brown hair up to his shoulder, light brown eyes—almost golden, I can say—and—”
“God’s blood!” he interjected. “You want to say he is handsome.”
I laughed hard at his comment, but I instantly shut my mouth when he darted a look at me that twisted my insides.
“Of course not, Edward.” Giving him a sloppy kiss again, I decided to ward off his insecurity. “If you think that there is another man I fancy, I will kill you for doubting me.” I poked his chest. “And I will not care if you are the bloody Crown Prince.” His gaze softened again. “And if you are wondering why I admire him, it is because he is a lover of art and literature just like me.”
