Can it be Monday already? Ugh! But here's a snippet sure to brighten your day. I have Judith Sterling continuing her excerpt from book one of The Novels of Ravenwood Series, entitled Flight of the Raven. Enjoy :)
William searched his memory. “That must’ve been when I was in the prison tower.”
William glowered at him.
Robert folded his arms. “What did you do there?”
“I paced...and pondered.”
“Brooded, you mean. Ever since our arrival, you’ve spent a perverse amount of time in that cursed place.”
“What if I have?”
“Don’t you see it points to a more serious imprisonment?”
“Of what, pray?”
“Your mind, and I dare say your heart.”
Make sure to comment below for a chance to win a digital copy of Flight of the Raven (or if you already own a copy, your choice of another of Judith’s books). A winner will be randomly chosen and announced on December 31.
Follow along next Monday on Barbara Bettis’s blog.
How eager would the bridegroom be if he knew he could never bed the bride?
Lady Emma of Ravenwood Keep is prepared to give Sir William l’Orage land, wealth, and her hand in marriage. But her virginity? Not unless he loves her. The curse that claimed her mother is clear: unless a Ravenwood heir is conceived in love, the mother will die in childbirth. Emma is determined to dodge the curse. Then William arrives, brandishing raw sensuality which dares her to explore her own.
William the Storm isn’t a man to be gainsaid. He’ll give her protection, loyalty, and as much tenderness as he can muster. But malignant memories quell the mere thought of love. To him, the curse is codswallop. He plans a seduction to breach Emma’s fears and raze her objections. What follows is a test of wills and an affirmation of the power of love.
