We are continuing with our medieval first encounters. This week you will find another snippet from Highland Redemption on Cathy MacRae’s website.
Below is a snippet from Cathy’s, The Highlander’s Viking Bride.
When they reached the door to the hall, she raised a hand, whispering a
command for her companion to wait outside the door as she perused the people
seated in the great hall. Pale auras of color surrounded each man, giving the room a
festive look were it not for the unsettling tale each told her. The reds of anger and
lust, the brown of dishonesty, gray and sulphur of dark thoughts and pain. From
long practice, she ignored the pale green of pity she knew were aimed at her.
Calder MacGerry, laird of an impoverished clan, has resolved to end the bitter feud between the MacGerrys and Sinclairs. He jumps at Laird Sinclair’s offer of marriage to his only daughter, Katja, to seal the agreement between their clans—only to get more than he bargained for.
Katja’s chance to escape her father’s harsh treatment appears to be too good to be true. But becoming Lady of a clan that despises her because she’s a Sinclair, doesn’t make her life any easier. When the attacks turn deadly, she fights her way out, making a dangerous passage to the Shetland Isles for refuge with her Viking family.
Calder and Katja’s marriage, built on mistrust, rushes quickly into disaster. As Calder seeks to repair the damage, Katja discovers not another enemy, but a husband who pledges a new beginning.
