Snippet from Betrayal

Despite her trepidation at his caresses, the sensation of his warm lips and hot breath on her skin soothed her sore spirits.

She had agreed to be his wife. It was right to accept his attentions.

There was no instant bolt of the brilliant heat that had thrilled her at Geoffrey’s touch, but the softness of his lips, moving to her upturned palm, sent a little shiver up her arm.

He continued to caress her, tracing the curve of her elbow with silky lips.

Last week’s snippet on Ashley’s York’s blog:

Follow along next week on Barbara Bettis’ blog:

After a night of passion with her betrothed, Sir Geoffrey Longford, Lady Alyse de Courcy is eagerly looking forward to her wedding. But when Geoffrey is forced to marry another, a heartbroken and possibly pregnant Alyse finds herself in her own private hell. She must either gamble with her reputation or marry someone she does not love.

A reputed connoisseur of women, Thomas, Lord Braeton, has dallied with many ladies of King Edward’s court, although he has favored none. However, as Geoffrey’s best friend, Thomas has sworn to serve and protect Alyse, an oath now sorely tested when he agrees to marry her—in name only—to guard her reputation. Yet, as they grow closer, and Thomas discovers Alyse’s sweet but spirited nature, he comes to desire a marriage in truth.

Can he overcome her memory of Geoffrey, or is Thomas doomed to burn with passion for a woman he can never possess?
