Medieval Monday with Jenna Jaxon

This is the penultimate excerpt I’ll be sharing in the Villains theme.  I hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing them.  I’m leaving you with Jenna Jaxon’s Beleaguered.

Aye,” Geoffrey said as he backed out of the room, pushing Alyse behind him, “although I little thought you so eager for your grave.”

“I am eager for Alyse’s warm bed, Seigneur, as you apparently are for a cold one.” Guy entered the Great Hall, his gaze darting over Geoffrey’s sword, stance, and stride as they sparred with words instead of swords.

Swords would come soon enough. Geoffrey relished the thought for he had itched to engage this cocky knave in single combat in June. The man might put up a good fight, but he would not prevail. “I fear your only bedmates this evening will be the worms that come to dine on you, Sir Guy. Enjoy their caresses if you will.”

Blurb: When death holds sway in the world, can even the greatest love survive?

Finally in France, Alyse and Thomas’s passion for one another continues to smolder hot and deep—until one fateful encounter changes everything.

During a formal banquet, Alyse must share an intimate dance her first love. His searing touch proves Alyse’s desire for him is as strong as when they first met. Tormented by this revelation, Alyse is bitterly torn between the love of her life and her love for her husband.

Into this agonizing situation, the disaster of the Black Death rears its head. Alyse, Thomas and Geoffrey must try to save the princess from the ravening disease but at a dire cost to themselves. With her world plunged into chaos, Alyse struggles with her feelings for both of the men she loves. But which love will survive?

Published by elisabethhobbes

Elisabeth’s writing career began when she entered her first novel into Harlequin’s So You Think You Can Write contest in 2013 and finished in third place. She was offered a two-book contract and hasn’t looked back. Since then she has published six Medieval romances with Harlequin Mills & Boon and doesn’t have any plans to stop! Elisabeth works as a Primary teacher but she’d rather be writing full time because unlike five year olds, her characters generally do what she tells them. When she isn’t writing, she spends most of her spare time reading and is a pro at cooking one-handed while holding a book. She loves historical fiction and has a fondness for dark haired, bearded heroes. Elisabeth enjoys skiing, singing, and exploring tourist attractions with her family. Her children are resigned to spending their weekends visiting the past. She loves hot and sour soup and ginger mojitos - but not at the same time! She lives in Cheshire with her husband, two children and two cats with ridiculous names because the car broke down there in 1999 and she never left.
