When Nicholas Herron, Duke of Berwick and his best friend, Rolf Torgesson, two of King Edward III’s most powerful and respected knights, discover a badly beaten young woman hiding in the forest, they swear to protect her.  By the time they learn that she is Lady Kathryn Weston, and that her attacker is none other than her betrothed, Robert Walford, the powerful and ruthless Duke of Pemberton, it is too late.  They have both fallen in love with her and she with them—a love so forbidden it could cost them everything, even their lives.

Bent on revenge, Walford uses his power as Chief Magistrate of the Crown to issue two arrest warrants, one charging Kathryn with attempted murder, the other charging Nicholas with high treason.  For years he has been abusing the authority of his office by bringing false charges of treason against loyal knights and confiscating their wealth to finance his scheme to overthrow Edward and seize the throne of England. Getting his hands on Nicholas’s vast fortune would finally allow him to accomplish his goal.

Traveling to Berwick to serve the warrants in person, Walford’s triumph is short-lived when Nicholas publicly humiliates him and sends him packing.  Incensed, Pemberton hastily assembles an army to lay siege to Berwick castle, vowing to take it apart stone by stone. But Nicholas has anticipated just such a move and he has taken countermeasures to assure the safety of everyone at Berwick—especially Kathryn and their unborn child.

But Walford does something no one expects.  He sneaks into Berwick castle and seizes Kathryn and all of a sudden certain victory becomes a desperate race for Rolf and Nicholas to save their home and rescue the woman they love.

Set amidst the turmoil and pageantry of 14th-century England, Dark Warrior weaves a vivid tapestry of three lost souls who find each other and a deep, abiding love that could ultimately destroy them all.


excerpt2For a long moment they remained where they were, bodies straining to wrest every last bit of pleasure from their climaxes. Then, with a groan, both men pulled out of her. She whimpered. Her legs dropped bonelessly to the mattress as Rolf moved to stretch his long, lanky body out alongside hers. Nicholas, still kneeling beside her head, deftly untied the silken scarf, removing it from over her eyes.

She opened her eyes to find him staring down at her. The love she saw there swept the breath from her lungs in a wheezing gasp. Her breath shuddered through her in short, panting sobs.

Nicholas smiled. “That was beautiful, beloved,” he whispered, wiping the tears off her cheeks with his stroking thumb. “You are beautiful.” He stretched out down the length of her body, putting his arms around her and turning her to face him. Rolf aligned himself along her backside.

She angled her head back over her shoulder to meet Rolf’s lips in a soul-jarring kiss. His eyes were the color of the deepest ocean and she was drowning in them.

“I love thee, yndling,” he said in a barely -audible whisper. “Jeg elske dig.” His right arm curved over her midriff as he nuzzled his face against her damp neck, kissing and licking her sweat-salted skin. “Jeg elske dig,”he repeated on a sigh, tightening his arm around her convulsively.

“I love you, too. Both of you.” She sighed blissfully, luxuriating in the feel of two hot male bodies surrounding her, front and back. She had never felt aught like the bone-deep satisfaction she was feeling now. She had never felt so cherished. So completely and thoroughly loved.

She had just given herself to two men. Two men she loved more than anything else in the whole world. Men she loved more than life itself. And they had just given her the most mind-shattering pleasure she had ever known. And now they were simply holding her, kissing her. Loving her. She had thought she would never survive this. But she had been wrong. Now she knew that she would never survive without this. She needed both of these men. Without them, she would never be whole.


abouttheauthorJulie has been writing her entire life, but it wasn’t until November of 2012 that she burst onto the erotic romance scene with her sizzling hot first novel, Loving Sarah, followed by its sequel, Owning Sarah, ten months later. Her third novel, Dark Warrior, set in 14th-century England, is her first historical romance.

Julie lives in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia.  Now retired after a 25-year dream career, first as a children’s librarian then a professional storyteller and puppeteer, she has time to devote to her new love, writing erotic romance, the steamier the better, thus following the career path blazed by so many before her—from kiddie lit to erotica.
