He ran his tongue first over one nipple, then the other, while his thumb and fingers continued touching between my legs and making my hips rise up of their own accord. Branford’s fingers dipped farther inside of me, and I felt them curl up as I stiffened and cried out in short, panting breaths. His fingers retreated quickly, leaving me suddenly empty and somewhat confused.

At the same time, he released my breast from his lips and made a light trail down the center of my body, stopping at my navel. My fingers moved from his shoulder to his hair, and I let the wonderfully soft strands glide between my fingers. Branford’s gaze tilted upwards, looking at me, smiling his half smile, and making my stomach clench inside. While his eyes were still locked with mine, he reached out with his tongue and ran the edge of it around my navel, and I shivered. Branford grinned, kissed the skin just below the little indentation, then started moving farther down. Much farther down.

“What are you doing?” I breathed, my eyes wide.

“Kissing you,” he responded with an arch of his brow. He tilted his head and kissed first one hipbone, then the other. He slid his hand down my side, over my hip, down my leg, and then curled around my knee. He lifted my leg, laying it over his shoulder while he continued to watch my face. As his intent became clearer to me, my breath caught in my throat, and I whimpered.



I felt his lips brush softly over the skin of my inner thigh, and he slowly continued a line of kisses up the inside of my leg while I lay back, horrified at what he was doing. I remembered the feeling of his fingers between my legs, stroking and fondling me until I was screaming out for him in the middle of the forest, and I remembered the feeling of his tongue across my bare nipples.

My breath escaped me in gasps as his tongue reached out and took a long lick from my opening to the tiny, intense spot at the top of my folds. His darkened eyes stayed trained to mine as he swirled the tip of his tongue in a small circle around the little nub. I whimpered, panted, and grasped at the blanket below me as his lips joined his tongue, wrapping around my flesh—licking and sucking as he had done to my breasts only moments before. An instant later, his fingers joined his mouth, and I felt him slide them slowly back into me—moving in and out leisurely as his tongue circled and pressed against me.

~Liz’s 5 Star Review~

“You are so beautiful”


The Consummation is the third book in the Unexpected Circumstances Series and Sir Branford certainly delivered on every single promise he ever made to his sweet Lady Alexandra. As the emotional connection between the two continues to strengthen, the passion grows hotter with every passing moment!
Alexandra is finally learning her position and place in the castle. Through the safety of her husband’s arms and the love and support of Ida and the Queen, her confidence is growing, and new and unique characteristics are beginning to blossom.

Although Branford has always felt like a master when it comes to the ways of women, Alexandra is like a delicate puzzle that he wants to solve without breaking. The dance is all about perseverance, and when it comes to Alexandra, he knows all the moves! He has all of the skills necessary in seducing his wife and teaching her the real beauty of pleasure!


“He moved slowly against me, pushing and pulling as his breath coated the skin of my neck with wet heat. Rocking steadily steadily, eyes closed, he continued to tell me, between his rapid, panting breaths, how good I felt and how much he wanted me.”

Laced with passion, intrigue, complex characters, and witty dialogue, this series has become my new addiction. The dynamic between Alexandra and Branford is rich with tenderness and raw beauty. Although Branford is the “teacher”, it is Alexandra who is teaching him goodness and love. The internal monologue of Lady Alexandra allows us to hear her voice and bear witness to her transformation. When Branford and Alexandra come together, it is beyond perfection. I have lavished in every moment of this love story, and I cannot wait for the fourth book to hit my Kindle!
Shay Savage is one of my go-to authors. She never fails to amaze me with her strong characters and the magical worlds she creates. This Historical Romance Series has been a true delight and EVERYONE needs to meet Branford now! Only a few more weeks until The Shortcoming will be available and I simply cannot wait!
