The Highlander's Welsh Bride excerpt:
Carys struggled to keep her hands from fisting and exposing the anger churning beneath her breast. The man gained everything from marriage and left her without even the ability to see her previous responsibilities were met. This was no convenient step away from the hangman’s noose, but one straight into the darkest trap. At least the hangman was honest in what he offered. All the acceptance she’d reluctantly gathered to support this mad scheme scattered like startled grouse at the first sign of a predator.
“I will not walk into this and lose every freedom I have fought hard to possess.” She advanced a step, clenching her fists tight, shoulders bristled forward. “You hold the upper hand with your outrageous law, but if you expect blind obedience from me, I will gladly face the noose instead!”
His brows plunged together. He opened his mouth, but a loud thump sounded at the door a second before it opened. A man Carys did not recognize stepped inside.
“Pirates,” he murmured, his voice low and urgent.
A common enemy.
“I can fight,” Carys stated, stepping firmly toward the door. Birk’s outstretched arm blocked her path.
She bristled. “Do not presume I will retire meekly when I can be of assistance,” she warned. “I will not live beneath the heel of your boot.”
Birk appeared before her in a swift, silent move, scarcely a hand’s breadth away. “Fight whom ye will, so long as it isnae me.”
“Do not give me reason,” she countered, tilting her face upward to meet his hard gaze.
His breath, warm and heavy, betrayed some emotion in him. Carys’s heart sped, not from the threat of pirates, but from his overwhelming maleness. He was a formidable foe—and would make a passionate defender. Or lover.
