Everyone loves a good villain. You know, those characters you love to hate? Well there are no shortage of villains here. Today Rue Allyn is giving us a peek at the villain from one of her novels. Rue, an author of historical and erotic romances, studied literature for far too many years before discovering that writing stories was much more fun than writing about them. Here is an excerpt from her Medieval Romance, Knight Errant.
The voice sounded like the innkeeper’s, but how could she be certain? Last night she had been so tired, she had not paid attention to the quality of the host’s voice. If he believed her to be a sailor, why was he addressing her as a woman? Shouldn’t he be calling her signore? Had Robert confided in the man or was something wrong?
“Who is it?” she finally asked. Robert had said nothing about talking to someone outside the room.
“Senor Caprizzi, your—how say you—host.”
She looked to the bedside table where Robert had laid his dagger. “Use it on anyone who gets past that lock,” he had ordered. Did she need to pick it up now? Surely the innkeeper would not break into a room in his own inn.
