Excerpt 
Copyright 2020 @ Lauren Helms
 I tug at my favorite blue T-shirt, slightly embarrassed. I'm normally on my A-game when it comes to women, and this one seems to be besting me. "One track mind it seems," I mutter. "So it seems. By the looks of it, you were doing something you probably shouldn't be doing." She looks almost too innocent to trust, so I can't help flipping the switch on my other skill. A slow grin, one I've been told countless times is sexy as sin, slides across my face. Cocking my head slightly, I wink at her. Lowering my voice, just slightly, I say, "How's your day going?" She stares. Her eyebrows pinch together, and she cocks her head slightly. "Did you just smolder?" My face falls, and I feel ... out of place. Am I in an alternate universe? Since when did my smolder not work on the opposite sex? Not only did it not affect the pixie, but she also called me out on it. Is my smolder broken? My thoughts are interrupted by an amused giggle. "Let me guess, that usually works on the ladies?" "Yeah, I think I might be broken." I can't keep the pout out of my tone. More giggles from Blondie. "How about you try introducing yourself? Maybe I have to get to know you before the smolder is effective on me." Uh, maybe she's right. I'm going to have to work my magic later on some random chick to ensure I haven't lost my smolder mojo. Shaking off the confusion, I get my head back into the game. "Hi, I'm Ryker Stone."

NBTM VBT: For This Knight Only


For This Knight Only
by Barbara Bettis

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Historical Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

He’ll do anything for land, even marry her; she’ll do anything for her people, except marry him.  If only either had a choice.  It’s a marriage only love can save.

Sir Roark will do anything to gain land, even beguile an unwilling lady into marriage. He knows she’s much better off with a man to take control of her besieged castle, to say nothing of her desirable person. But it isn’t long before he discovers that, although her eyes sparkle like sunlight on sea waves, her stubbornness alone could have defeated Saladin.  

Lady Alyss is determined to hold her family’s castle, protect her people, and preserve her freedom— until her brother’s dying wish binds her to a stranger. Still, she’ll allow no rugged, over-confident, appealing knight to usurp her authority, even if she must wed him. Especially since he thinks a lady’s duties begin and end with directing servants. Alyss has a few surprises for her new all-too-tempting lord.

But when a common enemy threatens everything, Roark and Alyss face a startling revelation. Without love, neither land nor freedom matters.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Excerpt:

“Pardon?” Alyss’s voice came in a whisper, but he seemed to hear well enough.

“I said your brother wished us to wed.”

The sound of a million crickets chirruped in her ears. His lips continued to move, but she heard nothing. Of a sudden, her bottom hit stone as she collapsed onto a step, but her eyes saw only him.  

He loomed over her, hands propped on hips, dark hair brushing those broad shoulders. She raised her brows in a level gaze—and inhaled sharply. Hazel eyes, sprinkled with green and gold 
chips, gleamed back. With effort, she recalled his recent words and her thoughts focused. 

She shot to her feet. “You must be mad. I have no intention of wedding a stranger who appears at my gate with some imaginary story of my brother’s last commands. I remind you, sir, you are a guest. In fact, I must ask you to leave. Your behavior is intolerable.”

His big hands closed around her shoulders. They were warm. Firm but gentle. She shook them off. He leaned in.

“I’m afraid I can’t do that, my lady,” he murmured.


About the Author Links:

Award-winning author Barbara Bettis has always loved history and English. As a college freshman, she considered becoming an archeologist until she realized there likely would be bugs and snakes involved. And math. Through careers as a newspaper reporter and editor, then a college journalism and English professor, she’s retained her fascination with history. Give her a research book and a pot of tea, and she’s happy for hours. But what really makes her smile is working on a new story. Now retired, she lives in Missouri where she edits for others and spins her own tales of heroines to die for—and heroes to live for. 



Guest Post:

If you weren’t an author, what other career paths would you have taken?

I often joke that I would have been an archeologist if it weren’t for bugs and snakes—and having to know math.

But that’s not really a joke.  I have always been absolutely fascinated with other times, other places, other peoples. With history and how people lived and what they thought, how they acted. I loved studying about information derived about those early cultures. I loved history. So archeology was a natural.

One early interest lay in Greek mythology and drama and the exciting way present day scholars located history and habits of the people through myths and plays. I was thrilled to study the different layers archeologists uncovered at a site identified as (possibly/probably Troy.) And to learn that one layer evidenced destruction consistent with that related in The Iliad. And… but I’ll stop there.

Then to find one of my professors did his doctoral studies in Egyptology. Now, his lectures were mesmerizing.

Those two civilizations were far from the only fascinating ones. In Ancient Britain…all right, I’ll jump ahead to the high Middle Ages where I’ve set my Knights of Destiny series in which For This Knight Only plays a major part. I love telling the stories of heroes and heroines who struggled and succeeded in those difficult times.

Yes. I would definitely have loved the career of archeology or perhaps anthropology. Trouble is, and I have to be honest with you, I probably didn’t have the patience required to spend years carefully brushing away particles of dirt and sand to make sure my dig didn’t destroy an essential clue about the civilization. 

I wanted to immerse myself in what the meticulous, patient, devoted archeologist uncovered. I wanted to immerse myself in the stories of the people. What were they like? What did they feel? How did they live?

So, obviously, my best bet was to focus on the stories my imagination came up with, and leave the bugs, and snakes, and sand to the professionals who were patient enough to do what I couldn’t.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to that until after I retired, first from a career in journalism, then from full-time teaching of college English and journalism. I loved those careers. I loved the people I met and whose stories I told as a journalist. I loved the students whose talents I did my best to encourage as a teacher.

And now I love writing my stories. Of people in earlier times. Of men and women who lived far differently than we do now, but whose hopes and dreams were the same as ours. And the best thing about being a historical romance novelist is that every story has a good ending. So tomorrow, as archeologists investigate an old castle, they’ll know that whatever else might be found, at least some folks might have had their happily ever afters.

It started with fire.

Not the kind that burns inside you and melts your heart into a mess of happy feelings. A real one. One that rips through wood and disintegrates brick and bone, leaving ashes and orphans in its wake.

Death would have saved me from a rocky family life. There would be no cigarette burns on the soles of my feet, no vicious words engraved in my mind, and no Kai Madison. The friend who saw past the scars and offered me pennies for my secrets. The guy who stole my heart with a single kiss in the middle of a rose garden on a snowy winter.

Nothing would have been easier to leave behind—to vanish from—but for the past four years, I've been isolated from the world, living in a hospital room and helping the Feds build a case against my foster-dad. Now I'm free and willing to risk my life to see him again.

There's only one problem. I'm no longer imperfect. I have the same heart, but a different face.


Excerpt 
Copyright 2020 @ Sonya Jesus 
“You know you can tell me anything, right?”

“What do I have to tell?” My body aches in protest, reminding me of the many secrets hidden just underneath the layers of cloth, and the many more beneath the layers of skin. What good does voicing truths do? A shared burden is still heavy, and I like feeling weightless in his presence.

“Everything…” He slips closer, breaths landing on my trembling lips. His thick blond lashes flutter, and in that same exact instant, our lips touch. And touch again.

Silk and smooth. Like melting ice.

They glide over mine, as though one year of life has blessed him with skill, my inexperience clearly evident in my ragged breaths. But he doesn’t seem to mind. When he tears his lips from mine, his hand falls to my chin, and he tilts it upward to face him. “You’re so different, Thorn.” Hovering his lips a couple inches away from mine, he whispers, “Be careful with the Del Rios. They aren’t who you think they are.”

About Sonya
Sonya’s a nerd—a cool nerd—who loves science, books, make-up and unicorns. She even has unicorn slippers and unicorn plushes adorn her office. It’s not obsession (or so she says), it’s simply an ode to her imaginative side. 
She believes in fairytales and in the beautiful things a mind can conjure. She’s a firm believer of empowering the crazy fictional ideas, putting them down on paper (figurative paper because she’s not a fan of writing in notebooks), and letting them flourish into a story. Sometimes that story is about psychos and murders.
Don’t believe me? Ask her in any of her social media. She’s all about those connections.
“There’s so much potential in a dream, not exploring it seems like such a waste of something absolutely beautiful.”
