BOOK AND AUTHOR INFORMATION
My Enemy, My Love by Ruth Kaufman
Publication Date: September 6, 2016
Lady Aline de Lacy is one of hundreds of people trapped between a chateau under siege and the French army’s camp in the midst of winter. If she survives, she yearns to return to her happy life as an earl’s daughter in England.
Sir Apollo de Norville, King Philip II’s messenger, prefers the freedom of the road to settling down with a wife and the responsibility of managing lands. But after he rescues an unconscious beauty from the cold and helps her recover from her ordeal, he’s commanded to marry her as a gesture of peace between their two countries.
Mutual attraction sparks, though neither wants to wed. Because he staunchly supports the French claim to the chateau, while she can’t fathom being tied to or having children with someone who works for the king who attacked her and her family.
How do you live with, much less love, your enemy?
MY ENEMY, MY LOVE EXCERPT:
Apollo sat beside her on the bed, no longer hiding the longing in his gaze. She drew in a breath as he leaned forward slowly. Her eyes widened as he slid close, then closer until their hips touched. That slight contact heightened his desire.
He put his hand on her waist, welcoming the feel of her sweet curve in his palm. Closer still he moved. She didn’t pull away. One more slide toward her, ‘til their lips were inches apart.
“What are you doing?” she whispered. Her breath smelled enticingly sweet.
“Seeing what we might have. And if I find what I think I will, and you do as well, perhaps we should wed. Desiring one’s spouse and welcoming his or her caresses would be something significant to build on.”
Apollo yearned to kiss her and assess her response. What would she taste like, feel like? Was there even a hint of compatibility? Perhaps they could be intimate and share pleasure, despite their opposing politics and loyalties.
So lovely. So sweet and soft. Soon to be his.
“I desire you, Aline,” he said, his voice low and deep.
“Yes. First, I want to kiss you.” Her lips parted, the sensual invitation spurring him on. “Then…we’ll see. What do you desire?”
Aline didn’t move away, but met his gaze boldly. And that gleam was back. Inquisitive. Clearly interested.
He angled his head slightly for better access to those soft, pink lips. Did she really want this, too, or was she using her feminine wiles to sway him to her cause? No matter, for she was willing. Ready.
They jumped apart as two young women entered, their arms laden with clothes, shoes and other feminine items.
If only they’d arrived a few moments later. He’d so wanted, nay, needed, to kiss Aline.
