Writing Sample

Here is a sneak peek of a work in progress, a historical romance:

Energy sang through Elise’s veins with a restlessness she couldn’t ignore. Gazing out at the spindly oaks that mimicked demon-like arms in the darkness, leaves swayed in the strong breeze. Thunder rumbled nearby. A storm was coming. The river which swept right by the estate appeared black. Formidable. Even the moonlight was hindered by the onset of the deluge that had set in. Within mere minutes, torrents of moisture slanted down across the family lands. The swift wind caught in the jalousies, skimming her exposed skin.

With a shiver, she drew her dressing gown closer, tied loosely over the fragile nightrail which had likely witnessed at least a hundred washings. For days, the humidity had stuck like incessant leeches to her flesh. But this storm…the untamed nature of it was exactly what was needed to relieve the strain she’d dealt with earlier.

Jean Luc’s solicitor and foreman had visited subsequently, just after a rude morning call from the manager at the local bank. A loan had come due, the new harvest was suffering several losses, and the lawyer claimed she needed a new husband to handle her business affairs. Jean Luc had left his attorney with a list of prospects – suitable gentlemen she could find a new life with if he ever passed on. Such a strange thing for a husband to do. But it was just like him to want to help her. They’d all known he wouldn’t survive that illness. He had been so weak.

No…she would not marry again, simply to better manage the estate. But what was obvious? Emerald Creek Plantation had been struggling for some time now. Probably because Jean Luc could not keep up with the demands once he took a turn for the worse. She wasn’t quite sure how to turn the situation around either. There were no random relations to take over the property.

            Elise muttered a curse beneath her breath. Despite these difficulties, she still must maintain her position in society. To pretend all was well and her period of mourning was almost over. She had since ceased wearing somber shades in her wardrobe. In all honestly, there was much to be concerned with, simply handling the estate after her late husband’s death. So…what business did she have with being far too forward with a man, and dropping a sordid arrangement in his lap? Was she intent upon worsening an altogether awkward situation by asking Chandler Pascal to bed her? She must be insane. A widow in charge of her faculties would never have offered a rendezvous, let alone admitted the humiliating truth that Jean Luc had neglected a legal obligation – the consummation of their marriage. No, it was best to hope the man would renege on their accord. That was a more suitable outcome for her current predicament. Perhaps ignorance was bliss, after all.

            Suddenly, a stillness was upon her, her limbs bristling with tension. Something lay in the darkness behind her – perhaps a presence. The muscles in Elise’s abdomen quivered, warming with a strange tension. Breaths held suspended for mere seconds, she murmured, “Quiet as a mouse, then?”

            A soft brush of fingertips at the curve of her shoulder heightened her awareness, nerves on fire and prickly, desire suffusing her with a heat she had never known before. “There’s still a chance to back out if you wish,” came the deep, masculine voice she knew so well. “Just say the word, and we’ll never speak of this again.”

            His compassion touched her. “So simple, hmm? We’ll resume our roles as before, with no complaints?”

            He nodded, beside her now at the railing of the gallery. She caught his figure in profile. “As always, you have the utmost respect from me for you and your circumstances.”

            “But what if we continued the charade, this…assignation?”

            “It would not be as lewd as you imagine. We’ll go slowly this time. I can be kind.”

            Elise had no doubt of it. The unknown was of more concern. “What about…” She cleared her throat, then.

            He clasped his hand over hers at the rail. “There are ways to ensure I do not leave you with my seed.”

            His explanation should’ve disgusted her. Instead, a sense of relief spread through her chest. He was a considerate man. Plus, he obviously had some experience with these matters. That could be helpful for this enterprise.

            “It is all right if you’ve changed your mind, Elise. I can depart from here as if I never arrived.”

            Her skin pricked with goosebumps, excitement infusing her veins. Chandler had never used her birth name before this week, often implementing titles such as ‘madame’ or even the occasional ‘chère’ as a friend might. But to acknowledge her Christian name implied a more personal relationship. She supposed the intimacy they were set to embark on would allow such familiarity.

Yet, that was simple logic. They’d already agreed to use their names. The fact was…she enjoyed hearing her given name on his lips. It felt so right.

            That alone was what next drove her actions. She turned, placing her hands upon his chest. The scent of subtle musk and citrus assailed her senses. He also smelled freshly bathed and appeared well-groomed in the moonlight. Obviously, he’d taken careful measures to ensure he was prepared for her. Just as had she after her bath, dabbing a new jasmine perfume behind her ears, at her wrists, and at the cleft of her bosom. While Elise wore a pale pink nightgown with a floral dressing sacque, Chandler had simple trousers, a shirt and a loose overcoat, open to the air.

            “There is no need to leave. I am ready.”

            Was that husky, female tone truly hers? She was a novice at seduction, but her throat felt thick, blocking out the ability to speak further. Instead, she gulped in enough air, desperate to avoid fainting as she waited for his response. So much hinged upon it.

            But what was wrong with her? She wore no corset. Thus, breathing should’ve come much easier.

            A smile spread across Chandler’s handsome face. His full lips descended on hers. Before she knew it, his mouth was testing, sipping gently. His tongue delved inside, sweeping against hers like the first time. She tried to match his technique, feared she failed at every pass. Still, she sank into that pleasant, masculine flavor.

Elise had been attracted to her husband as well, but Jean Luc had never taken the time to carefully explore her lips like this. He was too ill to experiment with their shared passion. Always tender with her, as if he somehow imagined she might break were he to press for more. But Elise was stronger than that. To show her eagerness, she looped her arms around Chandler’s neck, pressing her body against him. His groan was her reward, and he cupped her lower back with a splayed hand. She moved to push the coat from his shoulders. Except that was when he drew away.

            Chandler shook his head, then rested his temple against hers. Both their breaths were labored.

            “Not here, chère. Anyone could happen upon us. Your reputation is at stake, remember?”

            She nodded. How dim-witted of her to forget.
