Lord of Her Heart | Excerpt + Giveaway


He’s fighting for his future—she’s running for her life.

Lady Jocelyn Ashburne suspects something is amiss at her family’s castle because her father ceases to write to her. When she overhears a plot to force her into vows—either to the church or a husband—she disguises herself and flees the convent in desperation to discover the truth.

Malcolm Castillon of Berkham is determined to win the next tournament and be granted a manor of his own. After years of proving his worth on the jousting field, he yearns for a life of peace. Rescuing a scrawny lad who turns out to be a beautiful woman is not what he bargained for. Still, he cannot deny that she stirs his heart like no other, in spite of her conniving ways.

Chaos, deception, and treachery threaten their goals, but both are determined to succeed. Learning to trust each other might be the only way either of them survives.

With the attention Malcolm had given her today, would he attend the evening meal? Jocelyn did not want to seem as if she begged, yet she had missed his presence and wanted him to know she had noticed his absence. “Will you be at supper, my lord?”

Helping her down, he did not release his grip on her waist. Instead, he gazed into her eyes. “Do you want me there?”

“I do, though you need not come if you find it tedious.”

Malcolm leaned down, his lips hovering over hers. Heart hammering in her chest, she struggled for air, waiting for his kiss. His roughened cheek brushed hers as those lips—which should have claimed her own—brushed against her ear. “You, my lady, are anything but tedious.” He pressed a kiss beneath her ear. Her breath hitched.

Malcolm stepped back and gave her a small bow. Bereft of the warmth of his hands, Jocelyn swallowed hard. “I thank you for a most enjoyable ride.”

With a wink, he left the stables.
