Blog Tour & Giveaway: Her Royal Protector Alexandra Sellers


Hi everyone! I'd like to welcome author Alexandra Sellers to Enchantress Of Books!!

Thanks for having me Viviana! I've always loved sailing. There is nothing quite so magical as running fast over water with only the sound of the wind. And I've never quite got enough of it. Obviously, the next best thing is to write about it. My characters, Arif and Aly, spend most of HER ROYAL PROTECTOR on a saiing yacht, and I did enjoy writing those scenes. I thought I'd share one particular scene with you and your friends!

Excerpt



She could tell from the way he handled the boat that he was an experienced sailor. His body was comfortable, his actions fluid, powered by an innate masculine authority that was there in everything he did. His glances at compass and GPS and his adjustments to his course were so integrated that he seemed at one with the boat, the boat an extension of his body.

The morning sun was making her dizzy. She should go below and get her hat, but she couldn't unhook her eyes from Arif. Once he looked at her, a flashing glance that went through her like blue fire as he pulled his sunglasses down over his eyes. Aly had to turn away to breathe. The day felt hotter already.

Then he reached out to release the mainsail, and as those strong fingers curled over the toggle, she felt the touch as if his hands were on her body. With a noisy flapping the sail shimmied out and snapped into life above their heads, and heat flowered in her abdomen and she grunted in shock.

As he shut down the engine, the wind caught and lifted the yacht into soaring motion, and Aly finally recognized the yearning in herself with horrible, sinking dismay. What had possessed her? What insanity had made her think she could sail around these magical waters with a man as physically beautiful, as ferociously masculine as Sheikh Arif al Najimi and not develop a hunger for his touch? Of course she would. Any woman would.

He was bound to guess. And whether his rejection were contemptuous or understanding—because for sure he must be used to getting a reaction from plain, love-starved women everywhere he went—she would be exposed, and there would be no option but to carry on sailing with him till this project was complete.

She must have been out of her mind. With every fiber of her being Aly now longed to be aboard the little Oneira, sailing alone and safer than she now was, however dangerous these waters might be. Oh, why hadn't she done a moonlit flit last night?

Look at the horizon.”

The voice broke into her thoughts and she roused herself and found Arif's gaze on her.

What?”

If you are feeling seasick, choose a distant point and gaze at it. If you stare at me, that will make it worse.”

You're telling me.

I'm not seasick,” she said, without indignation, shaking her head. But it was good advice, and she obeyed it. Staring at the man would only make her incipient malady worse.

Please God he would never learn what that malady was.


I hope you enjoyed this excerpt!

Her Royal Protector
By Alexandra Sellers

Blurb: 
Aly Percy is her family's ugly duckling, and she's never been allowed to forget it. So she knows better than to imagine that Cup Companion Arif al Najimi's blue gaze holds anything but contempt for her as a woman, or ever will. But if he's offering to show her just how wild one night with him can be, wouldn't she be a fool to turn down his charity? She may never get another offer like this one.
Arif al Najimi isn't sure why he's dreaming about the little scientist who's so determined to take crazy risks for the sake of her research into the endangered turtles of his country. But as luck would have it, he's going to get the chance to do a little research of his own…into the question of why Aly believes her own negative publicity about how desirable she is—and how hard it will be to convince her of the truth.
