~ Fraya’s fingers slipped into his silken black hair. She told herself to twist away, but her need for him was overwhelming. Desire burned within her, firing her blood.
His tongue teased along the lacy seam of her bra. Waves of pleasure crashed over her and pooled between her thighs.
She felt his free hand slip along her spine, his strong fingers brushing over the clasp of her bra.

Review of The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy

The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy (Smythe-Smith Quartet Book 4)  

by Julia Quinn

Amazon         B&N

3 of 5 Stars 

Sir Richard Kenworthy has less than a month to find a bride. He knows he can't be too picky, but when he sees Iris Smythe-Smith hiding behind her cello at her family's infamous musicale, he thinks he might have struck gold. She's the type of girl you don't notice until the second—or third—look, but there's something about her, something simmering under the surface, and he knows she's the one.
Iris Smythe–Smith is used to being underestimated. With her pale hair and quiet, sly wit she tends to blend into the background, and she likes it that way. So when Richard Kenworthy demands an introduction, she is suspicious. He flirts, he charms, he gives every impression of a man falling in love, but she can't quite believe it's all true. When his proposal of marriage turns into a compromising position that forces the issue, she can't help thinking that he's hiding something . . . even as her heart tells her to say yes.


Julia Quinn is a staple on my historical, regency era shelf. Her books tend to be lighthearted, whimsical, and solidly written. When I came across The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy I was intrigued. Honestly, I have read much of Ms. Quinn’s recent works – sadly, my “fun” reading time has been cut back even more than before.

~ The vampire struck, sinking his fangs in deep. She came instantly. The force rocked her body. Fraya’s cry of pure ecstasy shattered the night. With the first draw, she went dizzy with pleasure. Her eyelids fluttered shut. Fraya clung to him, needing more contact. His lips were hot on her throat, his tongue stroked slowly as every draw on her pulse pushed her closer to the edge.~

Excerpt: Caressed by Night


I'd like to share an excerpt from Caressed by Night (Rulers of Darkness #2). The following chapter is one of my personal favorites, even though it doesn't feature the hero and heroine of Caressed by Night. It introduces my favorite ruler of darkness, Hadrian. 


Falcon took the cool air of the mountains deep into his lungs. Snow had just begun to fall and white flakes floated about his head, settling on his shoulders, and dusting his boots as he went up the steps to the large, imposing doors of the ancient fortress.
            Raising his hand, he prepared to knock as he did every time, but tonight was not like the nights in the past. Tonight he had to convince Hadrian to leave this depressing fortress. Tonight the world had to change.
            Shoving the massive doors open, he stepped into the dark, empty hall. The high ceilings were covered with cobwebs and the sumptuous tapestries that covered the gray stone walls wore a thick coat of dust.
            Glancing over to the wide hearth, he noted one crude-looking wooden chair; gone were the vibrant colors of fine, upholstered furniture.
            Crossing the great hall, Falcon’s heart ached. This castle had once been a happy place, filled with warmth and joy. The world was a bright, simple, and kind place then. His Clan had never been more at peace than when Hadrian reigned as king; they hadn’t a care or a worry and Falcon longed for past days.
            Coming to a halt at the bottom of the grand staircase, he closed his eyes and searched the fortress with his senses. He knew Hadrian must be masking his power or he would have been able to locate him the instant he had stepped from his car. Stilling his breath, his heart, his blood, he strained his senses.

          Hadrian’s aura was faint, but unmistakable. He was in the west wing…Falcon’s eyes snapped open and he took the stairs two at time until he came to the third level. Making a hard left, he continued down the wide corridor. The moon’s rays shimmered through the floor-to-ceiling windows, which lined both walls. His footsteps echoed through the corridor as he rushed to the one room in this castle he never wished to see again.
