Happy Sunday, lovelies!
I've come down with a cold but that hasn't stopped me from celebrating the release of A Tempest of Passion. Yay!
Last week I shared a snippet in which William explained what love was for him. Today, I've decided to share Emily's point of view on the matter.
Some editing to keep to guidelines has taken place, so the sentences might look a bit funny.
I hope you're all having a great weekend!

“I did not realize you had such extensive knowledge on the subject of marriage and dalliance, Ms. Bunsbury, but pray, do enlighten me. If a man has a commendable woman as his lifelong companion, why would he search for another?”
“I take insult upon your words, Mr. Dalton, but I will answer your question regardless, for clearly you are in urgent need of illumination. You seem to harbor a romantic view of marriage and romance, when in this day and age if you are to look about, you shall see that most if not all holy unions are brought about by economic and practical ideals. A man marries a woman out of need for a slave for his household and a producer of an heir, whilst a woman marries a man so that she may live a comfortable life and not be stigmatized by society.”
“You do not believe in love, then?”
Emily’s eyes widened and softened, pity in their depths.

A Tempest of Passion
Emily Bunsbury is most definitely not a fainter. She prefers to leave that sort of shenanigans to young debutants and to those desperate to land a husband. She is neither.
Except last night she passed out and was rescued by none other than the town’s most eligible bachelor: William Dalton. Of course, she wants nothing to do with him, but her heart and body don’t seem to be in agreement…
Banished from his pack for a crime he did not commit, William Dalton does not have the desire or the time to court women, yet, when he meets Emily Bunsbury he is incapable of staying away. Certain that it is nothing more than a passing fancy and not the mating pull, he pursues her.
However, as the unknown threat that expelled him from his pack strikes again, William realizes that Emily means much more and he must keep her safe. Now, if only she’d agree to his terms…
As danger grows with each passing day, will the couple learn to trust each other or will their love be nothing more than a temporary tempest of passion?
