His Judas Bride
by Shehanne Moore
To save her son, there is nothing she won’t do. To save his people, neither will he. Dire circumstances force Kara McGurkie to forget she’s a woman. Dire circumstances force her to swear to love and honor, to help destroy a clan in order to get back the life she lost. But when dire circumstances force her to seduce her fiancé’s brother on the eve of the wedding, will the dark secrets she holds and the things she wants most, be enough to save her and them, from his powerful allure, especially when she knows he may just be playing with her.
Callm McDunnagh, the Black Wolf of Lochalpin, ruthlessly guards heart and glen from dangerous intruders. But from the moment he first sees Kara he knows he must possess her, even though he also knows that surrendering to his desire may prove the most dangerous risk of all.
Now no problem becomes big problem as passion and desire rage out of control. Kara must look into the soul she thought she sold to make a choice. But can she look deep enough? Only she can decide who and what passion can save, or destroy, how when and who will finally learn the truth of the words… Till death do us part.
Ma would be proud of the low, rich timbre of Kara’s voice, the lowered head, downcast eyes. Why, anyone seeing this would think she really had been in Edinburgh.
Ewen’s voice was sullied by drink. So sullied Kara could barely understand a word he said. At last, he had noticed her though. Drunk or not, the dimness of the peat-smoked room could no more disguise his eyes glowing like burning coal than it could the glint of silver on the sword hilt the Wolf fingered, she saw, edging her gaze upward and around.
Her heart hit ever so slightly against her ribcage. She had honestly not expected it to be quite so pronounced. Ewen’s stare, that was.
Of course, she’d hoped not to have to bed him, given everything she’d heard. That was why seeing how safely accomplished this was, she determined not to dwell on it. To be exactly as she should, no more, no less, to guarantee the futures of all who depended on her. Herself included. Anyway, what was it to sleep with him? With any man now? She wasn’t just cold inside, she was dust and ashes.
If Ewen expected she would speak, well she would. “Yes, my lord. I am Lady Kara, Chief Ian Dhub’s oldest daughter.” Very nicely too, making no reference to the fact that Chief Ian Dhub’s second and also his youngest had already proved so unexpectedly sticky about signing the agreement, one had said she’d sooner cut off her hand.
Shehanne Moore is a Scottish author, who writes gritty, witty, as much risky as risqué, historical romance, set wherever takes her fancy. Stories that detail the best and worst of human behaviour, as opposed to pouts and flounces. For years she worked at various things, while pursuing her dream of becoming a published writer, so she was gobsmacked to sell her book, The Unraveling of Lady Fury, written in three months, to U.S. publishers, Etopia Press, six days after subbing it.
Shehanne still lives in Scotland, with her husband Mr Shey. She has two daughters. When not writing intriguing historical romance, where goals and desires of sassy, unconventional heroines and ruthless men, mean worlds do collide, she fantasizes about cleaning the house, plays the odd musical instrument and loves what in any other country, would not be defined, as hill-walking.
Shehanne will be awarding a $10 Amazon GC to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.
