Spotlight on… Dangerous indenture
by Kelli A. Wilkins
Here’s the book summary and a steamy excerpt from Dangerous Indenture, my historical/mystery romance published by Medallion Press.
Eager to escape her past in Ireland, Shauna Farrow signs on to become an indentured servant to Joshua Stewart, a wealthy man in Pennsylvania Colony.
But a life of servitude quickly turns to drudgery, and her hopes for starting over and creating a better life for herself are waning—until she meets her master’s roguish son, Ashton.
Shauna fights her growing attraction to Ashton, torn between propriety and acting on her emotions. But amidst their flirting, something dark stirs. Shauna soon discovers why no other servants will work for the strange Stewart family.
Stewart House has an unsavory reputation: a previous servant died there under mysterious circumstances. When another servant goes missing in the middle of the night, Shauna is convinced that a member of the family is responsible.
When Shauna’s investigation leads her too close to the truth, it’s up to Ashton to save her before time runs out.
“Tonight is all about pleasuring you,” Ashton said as he unbuttoned her dress. There seemed to be a thousand tiny white buttons running down the front. As each button popped open, he could see more of her chemise. Once that was off, Shauna would be naked in front of him for the first time.
He struggled with the buttons that stretched the material tight across her breasts.
“Do you want me to do it? It’ll be faster,” she offered.
“No, I’ve got it,” he replied as his nervousness returned. Damn it. What kind of man couldn’t unbutton a woman’s dress? Liam probably could do it in three seconds with his eyes closed.
When he finally got the last button undone, he opened the dress and slid it past Shauna’s shoulders. It fell to the floor at her feet.
“Now for this.” He bent close and kissed Shauna’s breasts through her chemise. All that separated his lips from her soft skin was a thin piece of linen. He tugged on the ribbon that held the chemise closed. The drawstring opened, and he parted the material, freeing Shauna’s pale breasts. God, she was lovely.
A shy smile crept across Shauna’s face, and she shielded her breasts from him with her arm.
“I dunno. I’m not used to being gawked at.”
“Well, get used to it, because I’m not only going to look at you, but I’m going to kiss you everywhere.” He moved her arm to her side, exposing her breasts again. “I’m going to pleasure you, and all you have to do is enjoy it.” He bent his head and drew her right breast into his mouth.
Shauna moaned and arched her chest toward him. He curled his arm around her waist to steady her as he swirled his tongue across her nipple. It hardened under his tongue. Shauna whimpered, and he increased the pressure while massaging her other breast.
“Ashton, oh . . .”
Her murmurs of pleasure gave him the courage he needed, and he worked her chemise lower until it fell away. Acting on instinct, he ran his hand down Shauna’s flat belly and slipped it between her thighs…
