Weekend Writing Warriors ~ 1/10/16 Time Enough to Love: Nothing Untoward



Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors!

Thank you to everyone who came by to visit last week!

This week I’m continuing from Book 2 of my medieval romance Time Enough to Love, the boxed set that just released yesterday. Check out the brand new cover!

This scene is from Betrayal and picks up almost right after last week’s snippet. After the devastating news that Geoffrey, her betrothed, has married another, Aylse has just been astounded by a proposal from his best friend, Thomas, who has concerns she may be pregnant.

TETL SET CORRECT COVERAlyse had not even considered the possibility, but now the thought screamed at her and instinctively her hand stole over her belly,  her cheeks stinging with heat.

She stared at him, her mind in a whirl, and slowly shook her head. “Nay, Thomas, I know not. I have not had…my courses since…since that night, but I am not yet overdue so ’twill be some time before I can hope to know.”

He sighed and some of the tension left his face. “That is good for then there is hope yet that nothing untoward has come from that night.”

“Why do you ask this?”

He pursed his lips as if impatient with her. “’Tis one reason I asked you to marry me,” he said, his voice emotionless. “If there is a child and we marry now, ’twill be easier thought to be mine.

Blurb for Time Enough to Love:

When Lady Alyse de Courcy is betrothed to Sir Geoffrey Longford, she has no choice but to make the best of a bad bargain. The hulking knight is far from her ideal man, and although he does possess some wit and charm, he is no match for the sinfully sensual man she secretly admires, Thomas, Earl of Braeton, her betrothed’s best friend.

From the first, Sir Geoffrey finds himself smitten by Lady Alyse, and, despite her infatuation with his friend, vows to win her love. When Geoffrey puts his mind to wooing Alyse, he is delighted to find her succumbing to his seduction. But when cruel circumstances separate them, Geoffrey must watch helplessly as Thomas steps in to protect Alyse—and falls in love with her himself.

As the three courtiers accompany Princess Joanna to her wedding in Spain, they run headlong into the Black Plague. With her world plunged into chaos, Alyse struggles with her feelings for both the men she loves. But which love will survive?

Time Enough to Love is available at Amazon and ARe.

That’s all for this week. Hope you enjoyed it!

    He’s got very sound logic, though avoiding potential trouble may be easier said than done. Congratulations on the release!

      Yes, I don’t think he’s thought it all quite through at this point. He just wants to do the right thing and help Alyse out if possible. Of course, the road to hell is paved with those sorts of good intentions. 🙂

    Congratulations on the release, Jenna. This is one baby you can be sure is yours. (But then, women never have that problem, do they?)

    Aww, Thomas seems like such a nice guy here. And I do so love a good love triangle…rhombus…pentagon…whatever really. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Well at least Thomas is thinking pretty clearly here and trying to look out for her! Enjoyed the excerpt, these characters feel so real to me – I’m worried about them 🙂

  7. He makes a good point and that certainly puts her in a pickle. I can’t help wondering what is in it for him though? Great snippet and can’t wait to read more. 🙂

  8. He’s certainly a considerate guy, but I have a feeling he can’t foresee all possible complications here!
