An excerpt from SAVAGE OF THE SEA
Copyright © Eliza Knight 2017
No more of a coherent thought other than she’d never been kissed like this before went through Jane’s mind. She should slap him, push him away, at the very least demand to be put back on her own feet and a good measure of space put between them.
But she did none of those things. Instead, she found herself winding her arms around his neck, parting her lips and sighing against his demanding lips. The spicy-salty scent of him surrounded her, doing something wild to her senses. Suddenly every part of her felt alive with a tingling fire that only seemed ready to burn hotter.
Parting her lips seemed to be a wicked invitation, for as soon as she had done it, his devious tongue swept along the open seam causing her to gasp.
Oh, sweet heavens, but that felt even more divine. Just that little lick sent a jolt rushing through her. And before she could catch her wits from it, he’d done it again, and again, and then her own tongue was reaching forward to test it out. She touched the tip of her tongue to his and could have been struck by lightning, so massive was the force of current that went rushing through her.
This was wicked, oh, so very wicked. And yet, she couldn’t make herself stop.
And did she have to? She’d given herself to this man. Had agreed to share his bed in exchange for him vowing she was his, a marriage that may end up being a total sham for all she knew. But that didn’t change the fact that she’d agreed to it, that in order to be saved from Livingstone, to keep the rightful king safe, she had invited this pirate to lay claim to her.
Lay claim to her, he was. There could be no doubt about it, the way he owned her body at that moment. She couldn’t move. He had her completely enthralled. Completely captivated. Intoxicated.
It was he who pulled away first. He who stared into her bemused eyes with a satisfied expression that she would have found overly irritating if she wasn’t so busy trying to find her bearings.
Shaw set her down on her feet and grinned at her as though he’d plucked a tart straight from her fingers and devoured it.
“I hope that satisfies your need,” she murmured, “for sealing deals.”
He chuckled then, a sound that caressed her nerves, but did very little in the way of calming her. In fact, it did quite the opposite. She licked her lips, trying to avoid looking at his mouth as she wanted him to very much kiss her once more. He might have set her down on her feet, but she was barely standing on her own. Every line in her body reached for him, wanting more of what he’d just given her.
“That was just a taste, love, of what satisfies, but not nearly enough.”
“Shall we do it again then?” she asked in challenge, then felt the heat rush to her face for having spoken so boldly.
Shaw’s darkened gaze swept over her, bold and devilish, and right along with it her body quivered. He wanted her. And she… wanted him.
“Oh, sweet Jane, we shall do it again many more times.”
I love Eliza Knight books. Whether she is writing Highland Romance or in this case Pirate Romance or Historical Fiction as E. Knight she never fails to amaze and entertain me.
Pirate Romance is not my usual sub-genre but I gave it a try because of the author.
This is book #1 of the Pirates of Britannia: Lords of the Sea series. It is a very intriguing start to this new series.
Shaw MacDougall has pretty much lived his life the way he thinks he wants it to be. Whisky, women and mayhem, wanting for nothing, until Lady Jane presents the possibility of a treasure he never considered possessing.
Lady Jane Lindsey who is recently widowed seeks refuge from her deceased husbands enemies. Her life is in danger from these men because of a secret she possess. When her safety is in jeopardy she reaches out to Shaw who had been her savior previously.
Will this renewal of friendship turn to something more or will it be the end for both of them?
I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy between our hero and heroine can be heated but this story is about more than that.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from Barclay Publicity to read for their release blitz for this title. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
