9780061170447: The Templar's Seduction (Templar Knights)

Bound by Deception… Captured by a powerful English lord and sentenced to hang for murder, errant Templar Knight Sir Alexander de Ashby has little left in the world to care for, and nothing left to lose. In a last-minute reprieve, his captors offer him an unorthodox chance for survival...a bargain like nothing he had ever fathomed. He must agree to impersonate the Earl of Marston, a Scottish sympathizer who died after years in English custody – a man to whom Alex bears an uncanny resemblance. Only by infiltrating Marston’s border castle and spying for the English, will Alex gain his freedom. But first he must convince the people that he is their master returned...and the earl’s beautiful Scottish bride that his rightful place is in her bed. Saved by love. Having been but newly wed when her husband was taken, Lady Elizabeth is overjoyed that rumors of his death after long captivity were false—even as she is startled and then seduced by the passionate man who has seemingly come home to her. Though he is different in some ways from the husband she had known before, Beth suppresses her doubts, welcoming the roguish “earl” back into her heart. Little does she know that the handsome imposter intends to vanish once his mission is complete. And yet escape may prove impossible for him, even after his secret is revealed, for now it is Alexander who has been bewitched by this proud, remarkable lady…until he desires nothing more than to live—and die if he must—to protect and cherish her in return. For she has become his reason to survive, her glorious love sustaining and helping him redeem the sins of a lifetime, as he surrenders himself heart and soul to her in... THE TEMPLAR’S SEDUCTION

From the Inside Flap:

"I want to clarify. Until I tell you I wish it, we will not...that is, we won't actually--"

"Consummate our reunion?" He relished the abashed expression his bluntness called forth on her beautiful face, finding some kind of perverse pleasure in being outspoken about the act he wanted to enjoy with her desperately right now, but that he had decided to resist for both their sakes. By all the saints in heaven, he must be mad.

But then she surprised him again by echoing, "Aye. Consummate our reunion." She lifted her brow, her hesitancy seeming to dissipate in favor of that other, more defiant air of hers. That almost insolent look that bade him `come hither' like nothing else he'd ever known. "You give your oath that you will wait and not attempt to resume our relations fully, no matter how great the temptation, until I bid you take the liberty?"

He felt the right corner of his mouth quirk as it always did when he was thrown a challenge, even as the blood began to beat hotter in his veins. "Aye, lady; that is my offer and my oath. But I think it only fair to warn you about something."

"What is it?"

"You will have one week of grace--but after that it is not I who will have the most difficult part of this bargain."

From the Back Cover:

Only a lie will save his life . . .

Sentenced to the gallows for trying to sell the treasures of the Knights Templar, Sir Alexander de Ashby has one chance for survival. The scoundrel must impersonate the late Earl of Marston, to whom he bears an uncanny resemblance, and infiltrate the lord's border castle to earn his reprieve. But first he must convince the earl's beautiful Scottish bride that his rightful place is in her bed.

But only love can save his soul.

Relieved that the story of her long-absent husband's death was false--and enticed by a wild, sensuous side of him she had never experienced before--Lady Elizabeth cautiously welcomes "the earl" back into her heart, unaware that the breathtaking imposter intends to vanish once his mission is complete. But escape may be impossible even after his secret is revealed. For now Alexander burns for the proud, remarkable lady...and desires nothing more than to live--and die, if he must--for a glorious love born of deception and sin.
