This week I'm offering a snippet from my best-selling Christmas Regency romantic suspense Vidal's Honor.
Vidal waited for his heartbeat to slow down. The instinctive urge to protect a woman from danger, and to find himself in the middle of such circumstances, were so different from an all male combat. And he could not allow his feelings for Honor Beaumont to impact the job he’ been sent to do; it would spell disaster for them all if he failed to concentrate on the present situation.
He tried peering through the curtain of rain and discovered their path and the distant mountains had disappeared from view. The muddy torrent of water covering the track promised to make any further progress treacherous. Should they stop where they were, or go on?
“We cannot stay here,” Juan answered his silent question.
“The next travellers coming this way may not want to carry on down to the village in this rain."
