We’re nearing the end of our Villains theme. I do hope you’re enjoying them.
Today I’m hosting Rue Allyn with an excerpt from Knight Errant.
Blurb: If Sir Robert Clarwyn can’t find a way to compel Lady Juliana Verault to return to England, he’ll lose any chance of regaining his family lands and redeeming his heritage. Yet Juliana must complete her mission to improve her gender’s future in the church. With danger and intrigue mounting, Robert and Juliana must rely on each other and risk everything … including their hearts.
“How quaint. Lies, disobedience, envy”—he cast a glance at the rumpled beds—“lust, and worst of all, heresy. Woman, you cannot fail to commit sin.” The smile left his face abruptly. “Come.”
He turned to pull her from the room.
Juliana struck. Her blade sank into his flesh and glanced off the shoulder bone.
She ran for the window, scrambled onto the ledge, and looked down. There was nothing but a straight drop. Death from the fall or death from Basti? She took a deep breath and leaned forward.
Next week we pick up the story in, our hero, Robert’s point of view.
