Summary:CAPTURED BY THE WARRIOR!
Lady Erica had tried to bring peace to her people, so that they could join forces against the Normans. Instead she became captive to the Saxon warrior, Saewulf Brader!
Wulf was, in truth, a Norman captain spying on the enemy. Chaste yet fearless Lady Erica wasn’t part of his plan. Her beauty was as disarming as it was captivating, but Wulf knew that once she discovered his deception, their fragile bond of trust would be destroyed…
Normans and Saxons, conflict and desire
‘We will save those for later.’
Later. Erica’s breath froze. Later.
He faced her. Smiled. There was so little room that he was scarcely a foot away from her. He was very tall this man to whom she had been given; his head almost touched the planked ceiling. Saewulf Brader’s skin was smooth and his eyes were clear. And he was, she realized with a start, examining her with equal attention. Convulsively, she swallowed.
‘Do not fear me. You are safe,’ he said, softly.
‘I…I thank you.’ Absurdly, she believed him.
Strong muscles bunched and shifted under his tunic. Saewulf Brader was the image of health. Young men, healthy young men, were, in Erica’s admittedly limited experience, not entirely reliable where women were concerned. Until today, Erica had lived a sheltered life; her high status had protected her.
Physically, at least. Physically, she was as chaste and innocent as a nun in an enclosed order.
Silently she stared at Saewulf Brader’s broad back as he worked, and wondered what was running through his mind. Tonight he had been given a trophy. Her. Could she take him at his word? Could she trust him not to…touch her?
