Introducing THE JEZEBEL by Saskia Walker
Good morning! I hope your day has begun well. I’m here to share a bit about THE JEZEBEL, book three in the Taskill Witches series.
Maisie Taskill has had a very different life to her sister and brother. Hers has been a more privileged upbringing, but she’s as much in danger, if not more so! Maisie’s been educated about her craft by a master who wishes to use her witchcraft for his own puposes — and he also intends to bed her to unleash her most fertile powers. As her story opens she’s on the run from London and we meet her as she is bartering with a ship’s captain for passage to Dundee.
Once ignited, a witch’s carnal curiosity knows no bounds
On the run from her powerful benefactor whose unscrupulous interest in her magic has forced her to flee, Margaret Taskill has never needed a hero more. In order to gain passage from England to her homeland in Scotland, she plans to win over a rugged Scottish sea captain with the only currency she has: her virginity.
Maisie submits to Captain Roderick Cameron’s raw sexuality in search of protection, but as their initial attraction grows into obsessive desire, devastating powers are unleashed within her. But the journey threatens to take a dangerous turn, forcing Maisie to keep close the secret truth about what she is, and keep the superstitious crew-unhappy at having a woman on board-at bay.
With Maisie’s wealthy sponsor giving chase, Roderick must stay one step ahead of the British Navy before her seductive magic causes a full-scale mutiny. He may believe he has full command of his ship, but he’s about to get much more than he bargained for.
“I do not have much to offer you in payment,” she whispered, stepping closer still, “but I can offer you several trinkets.”
Her eyelids lowered and Roderick noticed that she was assessing him from beneath her lashes. Her hand on his arm tightened.
That touch ignited him.
When her black lashes lifted there was an altogether different look in her eyes. It was determined and alluring both.
“And there is something else I can offer you,” she added.
Roderick cocked his head on one side while he waited to hear what it was.
Her gaze held his and her lips—as soft and tempting as a ripe berry—parted as she spoke, her voice scarcely above a whisper. “My virginity.”
Roderick stared at her then laughed. A woman so wily and forthright was no innocent virgin, but her brazen offer fired his loins nonetheless. Could he resist having her? He’d have to deal with a barrel load of trouble if he took her on board ship, but when he looked down at her upturned face he also knew he would forever be haunted with regret and curiosity if he did not.
He cupped her jaw in one hand, admiring her strange beauty, imagining how she might look while he claimed his reward between her thighs. Heat built in his loins, his cock hardening.
Her eyes flashed. “I am yours to plunder as you wish, Captain Cameron of the Libertas,” she added, and that voice of hers seemed to reach all the way into his innards and hold him to her, “in return for safe passage to Dundee.”
