Hot Hump Day Excerpt: Borderland Bride by Samantha Holt

Samantha is sharing this steamy excerpt from her latest release, Borderland Bride, with us today. Enjoy!
   “I need you, Jake,” she whispered.
    Groaning, he buried his face against her neck. Ack, but he was weak. Jake tugged at her bodice, loosening it enough so that he could release her other breast. He moulded his hand against her and Isabel wriggled impatiently, slipping her hand underneath his chausses and digging her nails into his buttocks.
   Need coursed through him and he freed himself from his chausses. She kissed and bit at his shoulder as she urged him forward. Seizing her skirts, he lifted them up and settled between her legs, not bothering to remove his chausses fully. Isabel rocked and whimpered impatiently as Jake braced himself over her, her delicate heat drawing him in. He thrust sharply, gritting his jaw as she enveloped him and she drew in a sharp breath, her eyes flying wide. He froze, gripping at the straw with restraint.
   “Did I hurt you?” he rasped.
   “Nay,” she replied breathily. “Nay…Jake, I need you.”
   “And I you, Isabel.” More than you can ever know.
   He withdrew before plunging sharply again. Isabel sobbed in relief, burrowing her face into his shoulder as he moved forcefully inside her. She had lured him in and he was lost. He could think of nothing else as she met his powerful thrusts, drawing him in deeper with each movement.
  Isabel pressed frenzied kisses to his damp skin and her legs came about his hips, clamping him in place. He released a ragged breath as she tightened around him, sending the world hazy. Clawing at him, she cried out as she stiffened against him. He drove himself into her, murmuring words of love in her ear as she came apart beneath him. 
In the wilderness of 14th century Northumbria, Lady Isabel discovers just how dangerous the Borderlands can be. With the loss of her voice and her hearing, there is little hope left for her. But when a brooding knight rescues her, she vows never to become a victim again and buries the secrets of her past in the hope that those hunting her will never find her in the Borderlands.

Jake is astonished to come across the beautiful Isabel, near to death, on his brother’s lands. Bringing her back to his brother’s home, he finds himself longing for something more from the courageous woman, something that he thought he would never want again. Isabel works her way into his scarred heart and opens Jake up to loving once more. But will Isabel’s secrets destroy their bond? And with his charismatic brother, Dominic, charming her, does he even stand a chance?
