 Today I’m sharing an excerpt from For This Knight Only by Barb Bettis



He must pursue his enemy; she must protect her people. Can their love survive the duties that drive them apart?


 When her elderly husband dies, Lady Katherine fakes her own death and disappears into the forest with others escaping the brutish new lord. Determined to protect her people, she knocks the wrong man senseless. But Lord Henry isn’t an enemy, he’s the brother of her childhood friend. Although his tender confidence tempts her, she’s bound by duty.

 Henry of Chauvere has found the one lady he wants for his own, never mind she’s tied him hand and foot. When he learns the king has ordered her to wed Stonehill’s ruthless new master, he insists Kate seek haven with his sister. But she won’t desert her friends. Henry vows to solve her problem, provided he catches a traitor before the threat from Kate's past catches her.https://ssl.gstatic.com/ui/v1/icons/mail/images/cleardot.gif

 When a daring rescue compels Henry and Kate to join forces, their attraction grows into love. If only duty didn’t drive them apart.

 “I can’t breathe,” she gasped.  Resting her forehead against his chin she inhaled. His strong hand stroked her back.

“Are you all right?” he whispered.

 She answered in tiny, jerky nods. How could she speak when her body flamed in a way it never had for her husband? Poor Hubert had been a two score years older than she, but he’d been a gentle, considerate lover. Their nights together had been pleasant, sometimes even exciting. At least, she’d thought so at the time.

Now she wasn’t so certain. This kiss from Henry affected her as nothing before.
