Journey in Time #2 excerpt with giveaway

      She had to be on the grounds. She wouldn't venture far. He walked the corridors stopping anyone who might've seen her. He questioned the kitchen servants. None that day served her meals. No one had seen her since the previous night's banquet.
      Alex returned to their chamber afraid something terrible happened. Worse, he had no idea who else to ask. A chill breeze blew through the window and whipped at his cloak. Shakira wouldn't leave the window open in this weather. Wherever she disappeared to, she left in a hurry. He noticed her clothing trunk missing. She didn't disappear on her own. Someone knew what happened. He rushed from the room determined to get the answer.

I am giving away a Smashwords coupon for my romantic thriller, Golden Chariot to a randomly chosen commenter to this excerpt.

:) Big smile. Now, you know I can't tell you, but I'll give you a hint. It wasn't good and it was at the king's behest.
