She has nothing left to fear, except love itself.....
His Judas Bride......Desiring her could be...... murder
Extract. Copywrite Shehanne Moore Etopia Press
“Now,” Lord Ewen canted his jaw, “how about you put your hand where
everyone here can see it?”
Before she could open her mouth to protest, he leaned closer. Her throat
dried. His thigh was a very handy option, wasn’t it? Though she strove to stop
them, she widened her eyes. Drunk or not, debaucher or not, Lord Ewen reeked
sexuality like a dangerous perfume.
Some people did. They just did. That was bad enough.
This sexual charge, this current, was worse. Because it demanded a response
in kind. Under normal circumstances that would be the worst of it, not just
But the worst, worst, was the honed, hardened edge and the sweet,
sinful breath that said he knew her type. Perfectly. And said he knew why she
was here, trying to get into Lochalpin. Said he wanted to tell her she was good.
To tie her hands, but couldn’t because he was having to hold off. Really, really
And she still, still couldn’t quite take her eyes off his thigh. How could
she? When Arland was at stake and the man was a dangerous snake. Even down to
Arland appearing on his shoulder. What was Arland even doing there?
“Sir, I must pro—”
“Which part of ‘Put your hand where I can see it now’ are you unfamiliar
Hell-cat was another word like slut. Expressing her fury was the last thing
she should do here, but he had her so she could not think for the rage that
swamped. And not just rage. For five years she had been dead inside. Her soul a
calcified shell, it had taken her less than five seconds to sell ten short hours
ago. Her body colder than the icy blanket of snow obscuring the trees and bushes
around her. And what had it taken for her breath to rush through her nostrils
like this? Her heart to hammer?
She snatched her hand from inside her cloak. “Satisfied?” Well, it wouldn’t
rush. She would be nice.
He edged so his breath brushed her cheek. “Is this how you think you can
waltz in here, Princess? Hmm? By bedazzling us with your”—he lowered his
“Oh, not at all, my lord.” Being nice was an exercise in restraint such as
she had seldom experienced. Calm too when his gaze and voice washed over her
with such deliberate sexual intent, she began to wish she’d kept the cloak shut.
But if she did not speak, did not stand her ground here, that would be worse.
“Actually, I thought my credentials would be sufficient.”

”Callm would sooner cut off your head, than ask politely that you get the
hell out of his glen. Their relationship, a brilliant play of slippery silk
against a roughly forged sword. Kara plumbs her inner depths for ice and stone. She must. But then there is the fire, ignited by Callm, which frazzles the both of them. The sex is raw, the sex is scorching, it is never gratuitous, it is always real.’
Incy Black Entangled author. Amazon UK.
'The plight of Kara and Callm is dire, the world they live in bleak, but the strength
and humor they show, as well as the tender way their fledgling hopes and dreams of happiness are written, kept me glued to the pages, turning them one after another and never wanting the story to end. This book is a keeper I will read again and again.'
Book Lover Amazon. Canada.
'Callm, with a dead heart and a soul he assumed he'd long since
sold to the devil, is as terrifying as he is intriguing. A man who wouldn't
hesitate to kill, but also a man with a level of tenderness he had no idea he
could even possess, quickly burrowed into my heart. The author dragged
me into a world where life isn't lived, it's a fight just to breathe for another
Aimee Duffy Harper Impulse, Beachwalk Press Author. Amazon UK. Amazon US.
'This story is as rugged, beautiful and cruel as the landscape in which it's set.
Shehanne has another winner in His Judas Bride. This is not your typical
historical romance. Ms Moore specialises in thrawn, feisty, troubled characters
who refuse to bow down to what life throws at them. There are no easy choices here. The writer's style is witty and humorous which had me laughing out loud in several places. This is a must read.' Booklin Amazon UK
'This is a book that draws the reader in from the very first page. Although written in the third person, the reader could almost believe the central characters are each in turn being written in the first person, such is the depth of characterisation the author achieves. There’s a lot going on in this book, and is definitely one that needs to be read with a keen eye rather than skimmed through, especially if reading this genre or Shehanne Moore for the first time, but the effort is well rewarded with a raw and raunchy cracking good read that will appeal to most if not all fans of this genre.' Echoes of the Pen. Review BlogSpot and Amazon UK.
'Her words were powerful and moving in a way I haven’t witnessed in historical romance in ages.'
Lady Kara McGurkie has learned the hard way how to be tough - ruthless even when she has to be. She should know, she's had five years to acquire the skills. Callm McDunnagh, the Black Wolf of Lochalpin, will also stop at nothing (not even
murder) to defend what is his. Bring the two of them together and the result is
explosive. A rich, red, full bodied Burgundy of a novel, where murder, intrigue,
lies and deceit keep your attention firmly glued to every page. This is a novel you won't want to finish. Loved it!' Antonia Van Zandt. Author, Vienna Valentine, Seducing Amanda, Etopia Press. Amazon US.
'Fighters to the bitter end. I couldn't put it down.' Sharon Struth, Author, The Hourglass, Etopia Press, Amazon US.
