EXCERPT:
“Alyse?” he asked, pitching his voice low, hoping none but she could hear. A whimper from the
other side of the bed tugged at his heart.

“Shh, Alyse, come here; I would speak a word for your ear only.” Thomas held his breath then
released it when the mattress dipped toward him.
“What—”
“Shhh, be quiet!”
Her normal voice ad sounded loudly in the darkness. The listeners outside must have heard, for their chatter increased, and the floor creaked as someone moved closer to the bed.
Thomas pulled hertoward him, positioned his mouth next to her ear. “If you do not want them to hear what we say, you must lower your voice to the barest whisper; do you understand?”

BLURB:
The worst betrayals come from within.
After a night of passion with her betrothed, Sir Geoffrey Longford, Lady Alyse de Courcy i eagerly looking forward to her wedding. But when Geoffrey is forced to marry
another, a heartbroken and possibly pregnant Alyse finds herself in her own
private hell. She must either gamble with her reputation or marry someone she
does not love.
A reputed connoisseur of women, Thomas, Lord Braeton, has dallied with many ladies ofKing Edward’s court, although he has favored none. However, as Geoffrey’s bestfriend, Thomas has sworn to serve and protect Alyse, an oath now sorely tested when he agrees to marry her—in name only—to guard her reputation. Yet, as they grow closer, and Thomas discovers Alyse’s sweet but spirited nature, he comes to desire a marriage in truth.
Can he overcome her memory of Geoffrey, or is Thomas doomed to burn with passion for a woman he can never possess?
