Under the Covers with Samantha Holt

Please give a warm welcome to Lucy from Borderland Bride by Samantha Holt today as we sit down and see what makes him/her tick.

Q: So tell us about yourself. What got you in the crosshairs for your author?

Oh, quite a few things! A forgotten marriage contract, my dislike of a certain lord and my refusal to marry are probably the main things!

Q: What was it that drew you to your mate?

Well, he is very handsome…but I wanted naught to do with him at first. Somehow, he charmed me, though I still do not understand quite how.

Q: A little naughty fun, where was the wildest place you seduced your partner(s)?

It is not really wild but our first time was in the Great Hall. It was very romantic. Suffice to say we have had some fun through the entire castle since marrying but Dominic was determined that we should not make love again until we were married. He can be very honourable when he wants to be.

Q: Boxers, briefs or Commando on a man?

Forgive me, I am not sure what any of those are.

Q: If your partner wants to seduce you, what's one sure fire trick he/she can play?

Dominic has a way of looking at me that turns my bones to jelly. He gets a hungry look in his eyes and I know I am in trouble.

Q: What is the one place on your partner's body that you know will drive them wild-in and out of bed?

His neck and ears. When I kiss or nibble them he shudders. I love being able to torture him like that though I know I will pay for it later if I do it in public!

Q: What was one of the most embarrassing thing your author did to you in Borderland Beauty?

I am clumsy by nature, so Ms. Holt enjoyed showing me up in front of Dominic. Thankfully he found my little trips and stumbles very endearing. I also fell over when ice-skating, that was certainly an embarrassing moment.

Thank you Lucy for joining us on 'Meet the Character' day here at Dawn’s Reading Nook Blog. Please find Borderland Beauty by Samantha Holt at Jupiter Gardens Press.


“You care a great deal about the ‘other women’. ‘Tis odd when you profess to care little about my affairs.”
“I care not what you do. You are a free man and may lie with whomever you choose.”
His lips slanted into a wry smile. “And yet the mere mention of other women sparks anger in your eyes. I told you before, your eyes give you away. ‘Tis more than indignation that ignites the fire in your eyes, ‘tis jealousy.”
“Jealousy?” she spluttered. “Why should I be jealous?”
As he leaned closer, Lucy edged away, gasping with surprise as her back hit the cold stone wall. With nowhere to escape, Dominic moved closer still, bringing his mouth to her ear. His cheek brushed hers and she shuddered as his breath swept over her.
She supposed she could probably shove him away but her hands would not cooperate and instead clung to the stone, as if the rock could somehow provide her with the strength needed to deny him.
So easy. It would be so easy just to turn her head and kiss him. It would take only the smallest of movement. His lips grazed her exposed neck, so briefly that she would not have been sure it happened were it not for the scalding imprint his mouth left.
“You are jealous because you wish to be one of those ladies,” he breathed into her ear.
She gulped and shook her head but any words of protest died on her lips as his hand came up to the other side of her neck and curled domineeringly around it.
He kissed her ear. “But ‘twill not happen.” He kissed again as she frowned. “For you would not be just one of those ladies.” His lips sealed around her lobe, nipping briefly at it and extracting a choked cry from her. “You would be the only lady.”

Lord Dominic is in need of a wife. With the reivers, the wild and dangerous criminals that haunt the borderlands, breathing down his neck and his brother now married, he needs a strong woman by his side. So when he finds out about an old marriage contract between him and his neighbour’s daughter, he vows to give the mysterious woman a chance. Upon meeting the beautiful, feisty maiden, he vows to make her his wife.
Lucy Montgomery wants nothing to do with the arrogant lord. She doesn’t understand his interest in her. Surely a man like Dominic could never fall for a woman like her. Hurt by the past, she refuses to believe that she is anything more than a game to him. If only she didn’t find him quite so charming.
Can Dominic persuade Lucy that she is more than just another woman to him? And with the reivers growing bolder, are there worse dangers than Lucy saying ‘Nay’?
