The Blacksmith's Son
Rebecca Thomas
Publisher: Entangled Flirt

Captain Quentin Drake returns home after his Naval commission ends to find a young groom being beaten in the village stables. Weary from his travels, Quentin only wants a good night's sleep, but refuses to turn a blind eye to the lad's mistreatment. He intervenes, taking the lad to his room, only to discover a woman masquerading as a boy.

After Ally Lockwood's family dies, she supports herself by assisting the local blacksmith with his horses. She's not allowed to do the work as a woman, so she dresses as a boy, but her ruse is up when, due to injury, she's disrobed by a handsome stranger. What starts as a shared supper, leads to so much more...

An Excerpt from The Blacksmith's Son:

“I’m without clothing, in a room with a stranger. I hardly think I should appreciate my circumstances. Give me back my clothes.” Allypulled the coverlet higher as though a piece of fabric could put distance between them.

“Your boy’s clothes you mean, or do you have a dress stashed somewhere?” The tiniest hint of sarcasm laced Quentin’s voice.

She flinched. If he’d meant to harm her, certainly he would have done so by now. “My trousers and shirt should do nicely. Thank you.”

He leaned back, assessing every corner of her face. “They are currently being laundered by the maid. I considered having her bring a dress for you to wear, but then I thought perhaps you didn’t want your little ruse out in the open.”

His affable smile did little to dampen her distress, although it was probably safe to believe he didn’t know her real identity. She didn’t dare trust him, but something in his eyes settled her unease. Slightly. “Am I correct in assuming you’re the only person who knows you brought a woman to your room?”

His eyes widened a fraction.

“Does anyone else know I’m here?” Is this what her life had become? She was more frightened of someone finding out her identity than of being completely naked, alone in a room with a stranger.

“The innkeeper assumes I brought a boy to my room, if that’s what you mean, but I have a few questions of my own.” He leaned forward, resting his elbows on his knees, and pinned her with a stare. “Name?”

She pulled the blanket more tightly around her shoulders and pressed her lips together.

“Why are you dressed like a boy? You sound as though you’ve had some education. If you’re a lady—”

“I’m not going to answer any of your questions.”

“I warn you.” Firelight reflected within the dark depths of his eyes. There was a coldness in them. An emptiness. “I haven’t slept for days and my patience is wearing thin. How did a woman of some education come to be in this situation?”

She scooted straighter in the bed in an attempt to show she didn’t fear him. “I’m sorry if I’ve been a burden to you, er, Mr. Drake and I thank you for not leaving me in that stall, but if you’ll get my clothes, I’ll just be on my way.”

“I wouldn’t cast out an injured dog, let alone a young woman without protection.”
