Impatience goaded him. “Lord Nihtscua,” he continued. “And you are?”
She regained her composure and advanced toward him, halting an arm’s length away. “Lady Jocelyn de Bret.”
So ’twas she. His stomach twisted.
“I see,” he said. But he wished he didn’t. A man could lose his soul staring into the warm, inviting depths of her eyes.
Soul of the Wolf – Blurb
A Norman loyalist, Lady Jocelyn bristles when ordered to marry Wulfstan, a Saxon sorcerer. She nurses a painful secret and would rather bathe in a cesspit than be pawed by such a man…until her lifelong dream of motherhood rears its head.
A man of magic and mystery, Wulfstan has no time for wedded bliss. He fears that consummating their marriage will bind their souls and wrench his focus from the ancient riddle his dying mother begged him to solve. He’s a lone wolf, salving old wounds with endless work. But Jocelyn stirs him as no woman ever has.
Their attraction is undeniable. Their fates are intertwined. Together, they must face their demons and bring light to a troubled land.
