Passionate Pursuit

by Tina Donahue

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Erotic Historical Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

BLURB:

 

Andalucía 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 papá, her only hope is to conceal her identity and become a servant in a nearby castle—a life drastically different from her comfortable upbringing.

Tomás doesn’t 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 can’t resist Tomás’ passion nor deny the heat of her own. But neither the lush countryside nor the walls of the opulent Moorish castle can entirely protect her—and if he were to discover her secret, she could be torn away from him forever. Yet how can she sustain his love if she’s living a lie?

EXCERPT:

 

 

With no one about, she pressed against him, her arm firmly around his waist. Her complexion had almost returned to normal, tears at an end. They reached the entrance he’d mentioned. Tall bushes shielded the area and wooden door from notice.

 

She pressed her mouth to his ear. “Is this where the Moor kept his prisoners?”

 

“In a manner of speaking.”

 

She searched his face. “Can you explain further for a simple servant like me?”

 

He could, but wanted to surprise her. “Never refer to yourself as simple or as a servant. The highest-ranking ladies in the kingdom are not nearly as noble as you.”

 

Her brow wrinkled.

 

He had no idea why and wasn’t about to question her. No matter how much she might have argued, she was the finest woman he’d ever known.

 

Today, she’d be his.

 

A reckless decision if he didn’t intend on them sharing their lives. Somehow, he’d have to see they did, find a way to make them fit together, not only here but in his world too.

 

With her hand in his, he led Beatriz inside. The walls and polished stone floor were cool to the touch, the ceiling arched. He’d lit an oil lamp earlier in preparation for this, just as the Moor who’d once lived here would have done. Today, everything needed to be magical. If Rufio had ravished her, Tomás would have never forgiven himself. Her first time with a man should be a breathtaking act with such intense joy she’d always want more.

 

They strolled deeper into the space. The hall widened into a large chamber that led to an interior courtyard. There was no access to this spot from the castle. No one except Señora Cisneros knew the place existed.

 

Beatriz eased from him and explored. Instead of heavy Spanish chairs, benches, and tables, low platforms with thin mattresses, large vases, and exquisitely designed rugs in red, blue, and gold dominated the area. Silk sheets covered each mattress. Colorful pillows lay strewn about. Intricate latticework screens stood next to arched windows and doors, opened now to allow an unrestricted view of the small courtyard. Flowers in every color, lush green plants, and towering trees created a veritable Eden.

 

Her eyes glittered. “Is this, or was this, what I think it is?”

 

“A prison?”

 

“In a manner of speaking. A harem, no?”
