Is it getting a little medieval in here, or is it just me? Welcome back for a great snippet. Today I have the lovely Judith Marshall with part of her excerpt from Shadow of the Swan, book three in The Novels of Ravenwood Series. Enjoy ;)
In case you missed last week, you can find Judith's snippet on Lane McFarland's blog:
“You’re referring to appetites of the flesh,” he said.
She lifted her chin. “I am.”
With a casual air, he leaned back. “I’ll admit I’ve enjoyed the company of women. Have I ever! Truly, deeply, unreservedly—”
“I grasp your meaning.” She shifted again on her chair. “Do you think you can live without it?”
“I’m willing to try.”

Haunted by memories; healed by love.
Lady Constance de Bret was determined to be a nun, until shadows from the past eclipsed her present. Marriage is the safest option, but she insists on a spiritual union, in which physical intimacy is forbidden. Not so easy with a bridegroom who wields unparalleled charm! But a long-buried secret could taint his affection and cloak her in shadow forever.
Back from the Crusades, Sir Robert le Donjon craves a home of his own and children to inherit it. From the moment he meets Constance, he feels a mysterious bond between them. When she’s threatened, he vows to protect her and agrees to the spiritual marriage, with the hope of one day persuading her to enjoy a “real” one. She captivates him but opens old wounds and challenges everything he thought he believed.
Two souls in need of healing. Two hearts destined to beat as one.
