My Sexy Saturday – Historical romance #MSS108

Welcome to My Sexy Saturday!

5AmazonToday, I’m sharing a snippet from my historical romance novella, The Proxy

“Lady Caroline,” the proxy said. “Call me Nicholas.”

She shrugged her shoulders wasn’t that what the priest had called him during their vows? Her headache pounded against her skull. What did it matter his name? He was a servant…a stand-in for her feeble husband.

“You’ll like the baron, I think. Might not be pleasing to the eye but he is a kind man and has always treated his servants fairly.”

“He does not beat them?” Caroline had hope that at least, he may not beat her. If he was kind to his servants, then how much more so to his wife and mother of his children?

“No, he has never struck any of us. Even those that might have deserved it. His enemies, though, he fought in many battles, but lost the taste of bloodshed along with his youth.”

“Tell me more about him.” Caroline moved her wedding gown and crossed her legs as she sat on the bed. Give her some glimmer of hope that her marriage was not as bad as she feared.

“First,” Nicholas closed the door, “the guests will expect a piece of your wedding dress for luck.”

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

  1. Nice snippet. Always thought the proxy idea was strange and foreign but when you are far away at war, it served it’s purpose. Still, there is always the chance of falling for the proxy instead. Thanks for sharing and being part of My Sexy Saturday.
