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?
