A Merchant's Daughter - Arabella Sheen - EXCERPT 3

  


A Merchant’s Daughter

Arabella Sheen


A merchant’s daughter and a destitute nobleman. Can a marriage of convenience solve their problems?
Miss Emma Brentry is happy with life, but she feels the time has come to marry. Her father, a wealthy glass merchant, has expectations of grandchildren, and Emma doesn’t wish to disappoint him. Reluctantly, and somewhat halfheartedly, she begins the search for a husband.
Mr. Aaron Trent, a gentleman of noble birth, returns to England fresh from the Napoleonic war with a scar and limp to prove it. During his absence, his estate, Windhurst Hall, has been pledged by his cousin at the gaming tables. He is now in search of the necessary funds with which to buy back his home.
Traveling to Bath, Emma finds herself stranded on the road and is compelled to stay the night at The Stag and Hounds posting inn. She encounters Aaron, an attentive, handsome stranger, who offers her some much-needed assistance. Instant attraction is felt by both, and as dusk falls, Emma makes Aaron an offer he finds difficult to refuse.
With his pride standing in the way, can Aaron stay true to his principles, or will he, with reckless, passionate abandonment, succumb to Emma’s powers of persuasion?

CHAPTER  1    EXCERPT  3  continued...

Emma felt flustered and out of her depth. Approached by a stranger, she had no idea how she ought to react. Should she be affronted, or should she simply ignore him? If he was prepared to assist, she decided that perhaps she ought to be civil in case she was compelled to accept his offer of help.
“My name is Emma Brentry, and I’m from Bath, sir.”
Emma stood and dropped a curtsy. She wasn’t used to introducing herself to strangers. Then again, neither was she used to frequenting posting inns.
“Miss Brentry.” The gentleman bowed. “Mr. Aaron Trent at your service. I was about to suggest I collect your belongings. My curricle is outside, and as I have yet to stable my grays, it will be no hardship to drive a mile or two and retrieve your luggage. Is that idea acceptable to you?”
The man before her was olive-skinned and unfashionably bronzed, as if he’d spent much of his time outdoors in the sun. He had a strong jawline and a straight nose that hinted of noble birth. For some unknown reason, Emma felt the immediate pull of his undeniable magnetism and was instantly attracted.
“The idea of you collecting my luggage is more than acceptable, sir. But might I be so bold to suggest I accompany you? You see, my father’s coachman, Gresham, is suspicious of most people we encounter, and he might not relinquish my belongings to you. I would also like to assure him that I am all right. He’s such a worrier, and as you and I are not known to one another…”
“I’m pleased to hear you have a coachman. To be honest, I was beginning to doubt your story. I could not envisage you driving a barouche or tackling the problems of a broken wheel alone. Certainly, you may ride with me. As for my credentials, here is my calling card.” Aaron’s hand delved into his pocket and emerged with a delicately engraved silver card case. He flipped the lid open and handed her a card. “Griffin will also vouch for me. Will you not, Griffin?”
“Course I will, Major Trent, sir. I’ve known you nigh on ten years or more. You’ve often stayed in Newton Saint Loe with your uncle, Lord Merton―God rest his soul. Merton Manor is just down the road. His lordship was always well-respected hereabouts. It’s a shame he passed away. And now that your cousin has―”
“Thank you, Griffin. I’m certain Miss Brentry has no need of my life history. If you could see your good wife prepares a room for her, and also somewhere for the coachman to sleep, we shall be indebted.”
“Yes, sir. I’ll ask Mrs. Griffin to see to it right away.”
Aaron placed his hand beneath Emma’s elbow, and he steered her carefully toward the door. As they stepped away from the inn and emerged into the bright sunlight and fresh air, she was made aware of exactly how dark and musky it had been inside. Taking a deep, cleansing breath, she turned to face Aaron.
Glancing briefly at his calling card, she read his details before placing it in her reticule for safekeeping. He seemed an honest enough person, and her instincts told her she could trust him.
“Well, Mr. Trent…what now, sir?” she asked.
Emma tilted her head to look up at Aaron. She estimated he was all of six-foot-two inches, and in the afternoon light, she could see that what she had thought to be dark brown curls were in fact jet-black locks. And then she noticed the rough, jagged line of a scar across his left cheek. It looked raw, fresh, and ugly.
As his eyes looked searchingly into hers, seeking her reaction to his injury, she only just managed not to turn her gaze away with unthinking revulsion. When inside the inn, she had not seen the scar, but perhaps that was because Aaron had intentionally kept his face averted in order to conceal the unsightly wound.
Emma looked across the cobbled yard and noticed an ivory-colored phaeton with two matching grays. It was standing near the water trough.
She hadn’t noticed the carriage earlier and surmised that the stagecoach, while waiting to depart, had blocked her view. It was a fine piece of equipment, and if she was of a sporting nature, which she wasn’t, she would be full of admiration for the elegance of the carriage and the thoroughbreds attached.
“Your carriage awaits, my lady. Shall we?”
As they walked toward the phaeton, Emma detected a slight limp in Aaron’s gait. At first, she’d thought the ivory cane he held was purely a fashionable accessory, as most dandies and coxcombs carried such a thing with them, but she’d been wrong. Aaron wasn’t using the cane for effect; he used it for support and as a walking aid.
Thinking it best not to comment on his disability, Emma remained silent. She didn’t want to offend. If she offered assistance, he might feel affronted.
Reaching the carriage, and without further ado, Aaron took her hand, and then, placing an arm around her waist, he assisted her onto the high seat of the phaeton. It felt strange having a man touch her. But there was no one to see. No one to chaperone, and no one to condemn their actions either. To Emma, it felt excitingly illicit. Being so free with a man and behaving in such a way was not her normal behavior.
Aaron walked around to the other side of the vehicle and joined her. They were perched on high, and to Emma, who had never previously ridden in such an excellent carriage, the ground seemed ominously far below.
She was unusually nervous. She was about to set off with a stranger and was aware that anything could happen.
The phaeton was light and well-sprung, and she’d been told by Harold, her sister’s husband, that to own such a carriage was extremely fashionable.
Emma leaned forward and smiled. “In case I forget, I must say how grateful I am for your thoughtfulness, and I do appreciate your kind offer. I have no idea how I am to repay you for your kindness, but I shall―”
Cutting her speech of thanks short, Aaron lifted the reins and asked, “Left or right?”
“Um…turn right, please. It is not far, and we should be there in―”
Her words were lost as, with a flick of the whip, the horses sprang forward and they were off at a spanking pace.

HIS MISTRESS - Arabella Sheen - NEW RELEASE

SHARING THE NEWS ... IT'S PUBLICATION DAY !!!

I'm delighted to reveal that my latest Evernight Publishing erotic romance - HIS MISTRESS is now available for you to read.




HIS MISTRESS - Arabella Sheen

BLURB
     Anna is horny, and when her best friend suggests they paint the town red, Anna goes along with the idea. With Ben, her seven-year-old son away at a sleepover, it could be her only chance to get laid.
     Anna isn’t after a serious relationship or a romantic involvement with a guy. All she wants is a one-night stand and plenty of sex, and Dan Holland, a handsome stranger she meets at a bar, might be the solution to her problem.
     Can Dan fulfill Anna's physical needs or will he invade her emotional safe space and become entangled in her life?

EXCERPT
The barman brought their drinks over. “There you go, Dan,” he said. “And I take it you’ll want a Friday night special?”
Dan winked. “You know me too well, Kev.”
While Anna and Dan talked, and without her being aware of it happening, Dan had rested his hand on her leg and was subtly rolling his fingers back and forth. He was playing with the hem of her skirt, and while caressing and teasing her with his touch, he gave a gentle rasp of a fingernail against her skin, and had her heart rate soaring.
With the lights in the club dimmed, she wasn’t too concerned about who might look in their direction. Dan’s muscular width concealed her from potential onlookers. But she was worried the blond on the barstool next to him might look over his shoulder and watch as his finger’s caressed her thighs.
“What’s a Friday night special?” she asked.
“A Friday night special is a fast-food takeaway,” Dan explained. “If I don’t get a chance to eat and the guys have already gone, the kitchen usually prepares something for me. Then it’s an early night … and bed.”
Dare I say itWould he think me too forwardGo for it
“Sounds like a good idea to me,” she said. “What would you say if I suggested I join you?”
So far, he hadn’t kissed her. He hadn’t touched her lips. All he’d done was caress her thighs and she wanted more … now.
“It looks like you’re going to make me miss my supper. Come on. Let’s go,” he said.
He reached into his pocket and flipped open his wallet. Extracting his card, he paid the bill, and as they gathered their things together and prepared to leave, Kev returned from the kitchen with a white carrier bag. The bag rustled as it was placed on the bar.
“Your supper,” Kev said. “And enjoy what’s left of the evening.”
Without any hesitation, Dan smiled and winked. “Oh, I’m sure we shall.”
Placing a hand to the small of her back, he steered her toward the door of the club and she wondered what the remainder of the night would bring. Surely it couldn’t be wrong to indulge her desires for just one night.

Content Warning: contains explicit, sensual love scenes 


CHAPTER 1   -   EXCERPT 2  continued...

The danger of her plight had become apparent. She could be stranded at The Stag and Hounds for days on end, or perhaps even longer.
“I can’t rightly say, miss.”
From outside in the yard, a postilion could be heard shouting. “Coach… Stagecoach leaving.
Chairs scraped against the hard, wooden floorboards, and eager to be gone, passengers left the remains of their meal unfinished. Shrugging into their tailcoats and grabbing their belongings, they then rushed toward the door, making haste to board the coach before it departed.
Looking through the open doorway and out into the stable yard, Emma watched as a sprightly postilion sprang onto the nearside leader. Behind him, a coachman sat perched high on his driving box.
With all the passengers squeezed tightly on board, a crack of a whip hit the air above the horses’ heads as the coachman signaled departure. The stagecoach lunged forward, and once beneath the arched gateway of the inn, it soon vanished from sight. All that remained of the chaos was a cloud of settling dust and a sudden deafening silence in the air.
Meanwhile, the landlord had fetched a glass of lemonade, and returning to where Emma stood, he set it down on a nearby table.
“There you go, miss,” he said.
Emma clutched her reticule nervously in her hands.
“How am I to get to Bath?” she asked, distressed.
The landlord looked out of the mullion windows and pointed to the empty stable yard. He turned to Emma and shrugged his shoulders.
“I’m sorry. That was the last stagecoach to Bath, and there won’t be another passing ’til morning. If you care to stay the night, I’m sure my good lady, Mrs. Griffin, has several spare rooms upstairs. They’re nothing fancy, but they suit most travelers in need of a bed. Many a fine lady caught between here and Bath has stayed the night under our roof.”
Unusually despondent, Emma sank down onto the nearest chair. With her elbows resting on the table, she placed her head wearily in her hands and gave a long, drawn-out sigh of despair. She was marooned, and there was nothing for her to do except spend the night at the posting inn.
She hoped her father wouldn’t be too distressed about her delay, and she felt thankful she hadn’t sent word ahead to let him know she would be arriving that evening. If she had, she was in no doubt he would be sending out a search party to scour the roads and comb the hills from Bristol to Bath for her ravaged remains.
As her situation was made clear, Emma became resigned to the fact she would not be leaving The Stag and Hounds anytime soon.
Action was needed, and she couldn’t delay as her coachman and horses were at risk. A decision was required about what she was to do, and in an instant, she made it.
Tilting her chin bravely upward, she said, “Landlord, I need to hire transport from you so I might fetch my belongings from my carriage.” She took a few sips of the lemon drink and felt refreshed. “My coachman and horses must also be collected, for they cannot spend the night at the roadside. May I stable my mares here for the night?”
From behind a high-backed, wooden bench placed near the open fire, a tall man emerged. Until now, Emma had been unaware of the gentleman’s presence. He had been hidden from view. Dressed in a greatcoat with many capes, he drew near and extended a booted leg. He gave an eloquent bow in her direction.
“Perhaps I can be of assistance,” the man offered good-humoredly.
His voice was deep and sensuous, and when his piercing, blue eyes honed in on her, she became somewhat flustered. She hadn’t expected such a penetrating stare.
As he stood before her, Emma was struck by the painfully perfect handsomeness of his features and the way his thick, dark hair fell onto his brow. Even in the dim light of the tavern, she thought him to be one of the most striking men she had ever seen. His tall height and the breadth of his wide, powerful shoulders were eye-catching. Irrationally, she felt an instant attraction, and her heart thumped excitedly against her ribs. It wasn’t often that a man could hold her attention, but he did.
This man was a gentleman of breeding, and not at all like the sort of merchant friends her father associated with. He was clearly a man of class and refinement, and judging by his mannerism, he appeared to be a person of some social standing. She knew the type well and had often seen them from a distance when visiting her Aunt Rose in London. But except for Lord Stratton, she’d never actually rubbed shoulders with someone of this noble caliber, until now.
Lord Stratton was one of the many suitors wishing to marry her, and not the sort of gentlemen she was usually introduced to. Generally, her suitors were young bucks of new-moneyed merchants. Merchants like her father. Not persons of the nobility.
Even though Emma had attended Miss Witherington’s finishing school and was well-educated in the ways of the upper-class, she’d never actually mingled in a social sphere with the sons and daughters of the landed gentry. She was a commoner. A merchant’s daughter. And despite the fact that her father was affluent beyond the norm, she simply didn’t mix socially with families of noble birth. It wasn’t the done thing.
A young lady wishing to enter into the world of the elite and attract the attention of rich aristocrats or noblemen of birth would first have to be presented to the Royal Court and then to members of the ton at Almack’s Assembly Rooms. And Emma had done neither.
In one swift, all-encompassing glance, she realized the man before her was above her station. Knowing he wouldn’t look twice at her if they were to meet at a ball or rout, she felt decidedly unattractive and somewhat deflated.
The landlord shuffled forward. “Major Trent,” he said. “I hadn’t realized you were still here, sir. I’ll ask Mrs. Griffin to show you to your room straight away. As I was saying to this delightful, young lady, the rooms are nothing fancy, but they ought to suit your needs.”
The man moved and was about to leave the ale room, but turned and asked again, “Can I be of service to you, Miss…” He paused, waiting for her to tell him her name.

Welcome to Contemporary Author - Paige Onsen

I’m delighted to welcome Paige Onsen to my blog.


Paige Onsen - Author

Hello Paige - It was lovely to connect with you through our mutual publisher, Evernight Publishing. Before we learn more about your latest release I’m Your Man, here are a few questions that will hopefully give your readers and followers and insight into some of the things that matter to you.


Arabella: Authors can release books, making them available to readers in various ways … via an agent, or working directly with a traditional publisher, or they can even go the self-publishing route. Which method of publishing do you prefer, and why?


Paige: I have always dreamed of having my book published by a traditional publisher. I’ve envisioned this since I was twelve. When I think of my childhood, I remember sitting at my desk, getting completely lost in writing my newest story and then taking a book from my mini library and showing it to the world. I’d open the window and start expressing gratitude to the audience outside. I doubt anyone listened, but it felt great. J 

In April this year, I manifested working with Evernight Publishing. The entire team is very professional and knowledgeable. A few months prior to sending my manuscript, I read the interview with Stacey Adderley and was impressed with her forward thinking and the advice she gave aspiring authors, so I decided to give it a try. The experience has been amazing so far.

I can’t wait to hold my book in my hands. The first thing I’m going to do is take a deep breath and sniff it.

 

 

Arabella: A slice of Chocolate Cake, a piece of Fruit, or Burger and Fries?


Paige:  What an interesting question! Food is always a great conversation starter and I have to say a piece of fruit for me, please. I love anything that comes from mother nature in its purest form. Although, ten years ago I would have said a piece of chocolate cake. When I was younger, I had a serious sugar addiction (it’s a real thing and can be pretty nasty) and I got to the point where I had to choose between destructive indulgences and my health. Of course, I chose me and worked very hard to get where I am now. Still, while I don’t eat sugar—not nearly as much as I used to—a slice of chocolate cake would be a delightful treat as long as it is vegan.

 

 


 

Arabella: Who or what inspired you to write your latest release, I’m Your Man?


Paige: This book came to me in my dream and was inspired by a friend’s story and an influencer I’ve known for many years. I started writing in April 2018 in a shiny pink notebook that I got from my mom. (I am a stationery addict and I cannot live without notebooks and pens). I first write my ideas and paragraphs in my notebook and then I type and save everything in a computer program file. I’ve always been a pen and paper gal and there’s something about that action of gliding a smooth-writing pen on paper that awakens my creativity every time.

 

 

Arabella: If the person of your dreams, (husband/wife/partner/or superstar), were to take you out for the night, where would they take you and what would you do?


Paige:  I’m always up for adventure although I am not a big fan of going out. I’m an INFJ and I am most energized in the morning. I wake up at 4:30 and go to bed at 9:00. By 8 p.m., I’m in my PJs, curled up on the couch, reading. I do love to go out on dates, so if hubby wants to take me on a trip around the world, I’d never say no. But right at this moment, I would love to spend a romantic evening on one of the famous rooftops in Paris.


 

Paris

Arabella: Who or what chases away your blues?


Paige:  An emotion-filled romance novel or a romantic comedy. Long hugs from my boys. Talking to my mom and dad over the phone since we don’t live in the same city. A swim in the sea. Watching the clouds from the top of the hill. A vigorous early morning run. Journaling.



 

Arabella: Currently, what is your most favourite T.V. programme, and why?


Paige:  I’ve been watching Ted Lasso lately. I’m a soccer fan and there’s something in that show that intrigues me. I recently finished watching Sex/Life, and I enjoyed it very much. I also love documentaries. Real-life stories inspire me.

 

Arabella: When writing a book or chapter, which do you concentrate on first: plot, character, or setting?


Paige: Hmm, let’s see. I usually like to start with writing a story down in as many details as I know. But to answer your question accurately, I’d say characters. Dialogue is very important to me and this is usually where the story begins. I have a character sheet that I always keep in the notebook of the book I am currently working on. I write everything I know about my characters and as I write the book and the story progresses, the characters speak to me. I don’t have everything planned out all at once, but I know the main points that I want to focus on. I also have to know the setting, as this helps me better visualize the most important scenes and where the action takes place. For example, when I started writing I’m Your Man, I knew my hero, Jason Tanner, would be a strong, sexy, down-to-earth guy who is confident around women (of course) and I knew he had to be a photographer, surfer and a passionate biker. I knew his age, where he lived and what his history was. With Rhea, it was similar but with a few tiny details that I changed along the way. In my process of writing, my main characters are the pillars of any book I write, and I like to keep them in close proximity at all times without interrupting the flow of their interaction for too long.

 

 

Arabella: How do you research your novels and characters?


Paige:  I’m a very visual person and I believe that imagination can take us anywhere we want to go. After I write the storyline and visualize details of specific scenes, I go online and look for photos that I immediately put on my vision board. Then, once I start writing and I am fully invested, I have the help of the vision board in case I struggle to finish a scene. If my characters have deep emotional issues, like my heroine Rhea who suffers from PTSD, I spend a great deal in learning about the topic if I am not familiar with it or I speak to my friends who are physicians and people I know who’ve been through similar situations (including myself). When it comes to settings, I rely on my imagination and the trips I’ve taken so far. I have been so lucky to have had the chance to travel the whole world in my twenties and see some of the most magnificent places on earth. Despite my being an introvert (that’s a whole new topic), I love meeting people and absorbing different cultures while I secretly plot my next novel in my head. Oh, and I always, always have a playlist that I listen to as I write.

 

 

Arabella: What advice would you give to someone who is starting out on their writing journey?


Paige:  Read, read, read, then write. And always believe in yourself. Someday you are going to be someone’s favorite author.

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity, Arabella! Keep up the amazing work you’re doing.

 

 

Thank you for being a super guest on Arabella’s Blog and Chit-Chat, Paige. I must confess I didn’t know who or what INFJ meant. After Googling…

An Advocate (INFJ) is someone with Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Judging personality traits. They tend to approach life with deep thoughtfulness and imagination. Their inner vision, personal values, and a quiet, principled version of humanism guide them in all things.

Wishing the best for your latest release - I’m Your Man

Book Blurb:  I’m Your Man



Rhea Torres is a powerful woman. She runs an extravagant multi-million-dollar company while enjoying the benefits of the lavish lifestyle she’s worked so hard to achieve. Yet, under that perfect facade is the girl who has never been enough. Growing up in foster homes, she knew what it meant to go through hell and work her butt off to get to where she is now. 

Jason Tanner is a vibrant, utterly fulfilled man who leads a life of purpose. He lives in LA. He lives in Hawaii. And he is everything she is not—healthy and energetic with a vigorous desire for life. With a smile to kill and a body to seduce, he is the ultimate catch. 

Too bad Rhea’s not interested. Because she knows not to trust men. She never has. 

As Jason tenaciously pursues Rhea and she gets to know him, there’s something about him that draws her in and she accepts his dinner invitation. But when things start to sizzle and she realizes that Jason is so much more than the hunk she first thought him to be, she lifts her guard up and lets him in. Until she finds out that Jason hid a very important piece of information from her—a secret that could potentially ruin what they have and change their lives forever.
