Passionate Pursuit, book 3 Dangerous Desires series.
Warrior knights and the women they simply can't tame.
Available for preorder - ready to read August 2.
Is their passion strong enough to break her chains?
AndalucÃa Spain, 1489: Innocent Beatriz is desperate to escape the threat of a miserable marriage to a cruel Marquis. Forced into the betrothal by her ruthless merchant papÃ¡, her only hope is to conceal her identity and become a servant in a nearby castleâa life drastically different from her comfortable upbringing.
TomÃ¡s doesnât know what to make of his well-spoken new servant girl. Her beauty and charm captivates the military hero; her mysterious nature intrigues him. And the desire she ignites burns brighter with each glance, as does his longing to claim her for his own.
Beatriz canât resist TomÃ¡sâ passion nor deny the heat of her own. But neither the lush countryside nor the walls of the opulent Moorish castle can entirely protect herâand if he were to discover her secret, she could be torn away from him forever. Yet how can she sustain his love if sheâs living a lie?
A gentle breeze carried laughter and converse from the seÃ±oritas who surrounded TomÃ¡s, each vying for his attention. The one in dark green silk with a matching caul danced around trying to get closer to him. The one in red with a white flower in her hair elbowed past another girl. Those in gold and bright yellow were even less demure, pushing into each other, speaking loudly, far removed from how a lowly servant had to act.
Especially to please Nuncio.
How dare he make her solely responsible for a manâs carnal moves? Beatriz had no control over anyoneâs passion except her own. Thus far, sheâd failed miserably at quelling her desires.
Despite what Nuncio had said, she still ached to feel TomÃ¡sâs heat and strength, to have him imprison and possess her. No threat in the world would change her longing. However, she wasnât foolish enough to act on her attraction. Poor man already had enough trouble.
His broad shoulders were slumped, mouth turned down. She wanted to make him smile. To have him stand as the noble lord he was, magnificent in his dark blue robe and doublet, his hose snug to his sinewy thighs and calves.
Several young women spoke to him at once. A seÃ±orita in a bright yellow gown touched his upper arm. The girl next to her, clad in vivid orange silk, touched his jaw.
Jealousy heated Beatrizâs face and throat.
TomÃ¡s drew back until the young woman groped air, not him. He faced the window, his gaze touching Beatriz, his dark brown eyes flooding with warmth, bronze complexion deepening.
Weak with desire, she leaned against the sill for support.
The seÃ±oritas gestured to him, talking endlessly, their words too garbled to understand.
Whatever they said, TomÃ¡s ignored them. He studied Beatrizâs eyes, then her lips and lingered there. She was smiling without realizing it. He answered with a broad grin and stepped closer.
