As Medieval Mondays continue, this week you will find the next snippet from my newest release, A Wee Highland Predicament on Elisabeth Hobbes’ blog.

Below you’ll find a snippet from Elisabeth’s, Redeeming the Rogue Knight.

RTRK NA cover

‘If the woman you fathered a bastard on hadn’t died in childbirth, would she be doing anything different to me now? How many of those others did she lie with willingly and how many so she didn’t starve?’

Her words knocked the strength from Roger. He shook his head, unable to defend himself against her accusations.

‘You have nothing to say? From the moment you met me you did your best to talk me into your bed.’

‘I tried to get you into bed, but I wanted you to come willingly,’ Roger protested. ‘I wanted it to mean something.’

Blurb:

The spy who sought refuge… When injured spy Sir Roger Danby comes asking for shelter at her inn, Lucy Carew is wary. He may be strikingly handsome, but the disgraced single mother has learned the hard way with men like him. Against her better judgment, she gives him refuge. Sir Roger has never been at the mercy of a woman before, and he’s never met one as mysterious and bewitching as Lucy. He hasn’t come looking for redemption, but Lucy is a woman who could reach in and touch his closely guarded heart…

Medieval Monday – Sherry Ewing

As Medieval Mondays continue, this week you will find the next snippet from my newest release, A Wee Highland Predicament on Sherry Ewing’s blog.

Below you’ll find a snippet from Sherry’s, Only For You: The Knights of Berwyck, A Quest Through Time Novel (Book 2).

OnlyForYouSansZon

Excerpt from Only For You:

He quickly disentangled himself from the clinging arms firmly wrapped around his neck. Marguerite was far from pleased. She almost appeared appalled that Riorden did not fall to his knees to worship the ground she stood on. Katherine almost smiled, thinking even Riorden would not subject his hose to what would be forever left within the fabric if he were to do so.

“Do not leave, Katherine,” Riorden proclaimed as he came to stand next to her, taking her hand.

“What is the meaning of this, Riorden?” Marguerite screeched.

Katherine felt herself being pulled to his side as he gently raised her hand, bringing it to his lips.

“Riorden!” Marguerite whined loudly.

He ignored the offensive woman, much to Katherine’s delight. “Forgive me, ma petite,” he murmured softly in her ear.

“Please tell me that will never happen again, Riorden,” Katherine answered in a hushed tone. “I don’t know if my heart could stand it.”

Back Cover of Only For You:

 Sometimes it’s hard to remember that true love conquers all only after the battle is over…

Katherine de Deveraux has it all or so she believes when she begins her life with her husband Riorden. But as she starts to settle into her duties as the Countess of Warkworth Castle, she finds that an easy life is not only difficult but downright dangerous to her well-being.

Consumed with the haunting memories of his father, Riorden must deal with his sire’s widow who just happens to also be his ex-lover. Yet how could he know just how far Marguerite is willing to go in order to have the life she feels they were truly meant to live?

Torn apart by circumstances neither Katherine nor Riorden could ever imagine, Time becomes their true enemy even while Marguerite continues her ploy to keep Riorden at her side. With all hope lost, will Katherine and Riorden find a way to save their marriage and have their happily ever after ending, or will Katherine be whisked back to where Time truly feels she belongs?

Medieval Monday – Judith Sterling

As Medieval Mondays continue, this week you will find the next snippet from my newest release, A Wee Highland Predicament on Judith Sterling’s blog.

Below you’ll find a snippet from  Judith’s, Shadow of the Swan (The Novels of Ravenwood, Book Three).

He glanced at her as they started toward the bedchamber. “Good. Feathers are far superior to the floor.”

“So the mattress is stuffed with feathers. I noticed you testing it before; now I know why.”

“I thought perhaps it held wool, which would’ve been fine. But I’ll take luxury any day. Here we are. After you, my lady.”

Blurb:

Lady Constance de Bret was determined to be a nun, until shadows from the past eclipsed her present.  Marriage is the safest option, but she insists on a spiritual union, in which physical intimacy is forbidden.  Not so easy with a bridegroom who wields unparalleled charm!  But a long-buried secret could taint his affection and cloak her in shadow forever.

Back from the Crusades, Sir Robert le Donjon craves a home of his own and children to inherit it.  From the moment he meets Constance, he feels a mysterious bond between them.  When she’s threatened, he vows to protect her and agrees to the spiritual marriage, with the hope of one day persuading her to enjoy a “real” one.  She captivates him but opens old wounds and challenges everything he thought he believed.

Two souls in need of healing.  Two hearts destined to beat as one.

Medieval Monday – Lane MacFarland

As Medieval Mondays continue, this week you will find the next snippet from my newest release, A Wee Highland Predicament on Lane MacFarland’s blog.

Below you’ll find a snippet from Lane’s, A King’s Enemies: The Turnberry Legacy Series, Book II.

LaneMcFarland_A King_s Enemies

She sat next to Hildred amongst other attendants at a table beside the ladies of Queen Margaret’s council. Some of the young tittered over the men decked out in their finery. Katherine regarded the pompous fools across the room, loud with their own praise, beating their chests and boasting of their magnificent feats. She reminded herself not to wrinkle her nose, no matter how disgusting the pigs grew.

Two men stepped before de Seabrooke, offering congratulations. Ah, yes. Roger Northrop and Nigel Bartram—the three monsters together, just like old times.

She had to give them credit; they had ensconced themselves well into King Edward’s court. Each held high roles and enjoyed the respect afforded councilors. Their nearness to the king complicated matters. The trick was to kill them without risk to her person. It wouldn’t do for her to become imprisoned.

Blurb:

Tormented by King Edward’s brutality against Scottish sympathizers, Drake Fletcher vows revenge, but only a madman single-handedly attacks the Crown. Instead, he enters the royal court as a spy to aid Robert the Bruce’s rise to power and place a formidable leader on Scotland’s throne.

Scottish lass Katherine Mackenzie Armstrong targets three of King Edward’s officers who brutally raped and murdered her mother. Disguised as one of Queen Margaret’s attendants, she sets a course to destroy the men.

The acts of treason both Drake and Katherine commit are punishable by death in The Tower of London but their determination pushes dangerous limits. Considered enemies, they use each other to gain vital information. Neither expect their overwhelming attraction to one another, the staggering emotions stirred. But the closer they become, the more they jeopardize their pledges of vengeance.

Will the weight of retaliation crush them, see them beheaded? Or will Katherine and Drake form an alliance and learn to live and love again?

Below you’ll find a snippet from Bambi’s Mask of the Highlander.

Bambi Lynn - Mask of the Highlander Cover

Kenna tried to relax, but found it impossible to do so. His touch did not threaten to leave marks, but worse was yet to come. She was sure of it. What game did he play at?

Unable to speak past the lump in her throat, all she could do was swallow hard and dig deep for any vestige of courage she could muster. She forced her thoughts to Isla. Kenna would suffer any torment to distract Ty from her existence. She would keep her secret as long as possible, trusting Mrs. Dingwell to keep her daughter out of sight.

 

For more information on Bambi and her books, click here.

Blurb:

Once she was afraid to touch him. Now she’s afraid to let go.

Forced to marry to avoid war between clans, Kenna Cleary endured three days of her new husband’s painful brutality before he rode off to battle the English. In the five years of his absence, she bore him a daughter, increased his holdings, and gained the love and respect of his people. Now he’s home. Must she and the clan learn to endure his cruelty once more?

The Laird of Domhnul has returned from war a changed man—more so than his wife or clan can possibly know. Now the warrior faces a new battle, one for his wife’s heart, and his peoples’ trust. He must walk the knife’s edge of deception and danger, while proving he is no longer the cruel tyrant they came to know all too well.

But when his father embroils both of them in a deadly plot, can the couple find a way to prevent war between the clans?

Medieval Monday – Ruth A. Casie

As Medieval Mondays continue, this week you will find the next snippet from my newest book (available for pre-order), A Wee Highland Predicament on Ruth A. Casie’s blog.

Below you’ll find a snippet from Ruth’s The Guardian’s Witch.

TheGuardiansWitch-RuthACasie

Excerpt from The Guardian’s Witch

Frantically her hands felt their way along his leg until she found his foot caught in the debris. She shoved the timber away. The exertion cost her precious time and air. With one hand she grabbed his shirt collar and kicked off the bottom. With her free arm she reached for the surface. She didn’t take her eyes off him.

The higher she got, the more the water cleared. The wild current fought to get free of her restraint. She didn’t think. She focused on getting Alex out of the water.

Back Cover Copy of The Guardian’s Witch

England, 1290

Lord Alex Stelton can’t resist a challenge, especially one with a prize like this: protect a castle on the Scottish border for a year, and it’s his. Desperate for land of his own, he’ll do anything to win the estate—even enter a proxy marriage to Lady Lisbeth Reynolds, the rumored witch who lives there.

Feared and scorned for her second sight, Lisbeth swore she’d never marry, but she is drawn to the handsome, confident Alex. She sees great love with him but fears what he would think of her gift and her visions of a traitor in their midst.

Despite his own vow never to fall in love, Alex can’t get the alluring Lisbeth out of his mind and is driven to protect her when attacks begin on the border. But as her visions of danger intensify, Lisbeth knows it is she who must protect him. Realizing they’ll secure their future only by facing the threat together, she must choose between keeping her magic a secret and losing the man she loves.

Medieval Monday – Cathy MacRae

As Medieval Mondays continue, this week you will find the next snippet from my newest book (available now for pre-order), A Wee Highland Predicament on Cathy MacRae’s blog.

Below you’ll find a snippet from Cathy’s, The Highlander’s Crusader Bride, Book 3 in the Hardy Heroines series

the-highlanders-crusade-bride high res

The noise level of the crowd grew and Arbela glanced up. For an instant, Caelen imagined a look of panic crossed her face. He leaned down, his lips beside her ear, ignoring her intoxicating scent.

“How do I get to yer room?” he whispered.

The look she sent him confirmed his suspicion. There was something in this world that frightened Arbela MacLean. The thought of bedding him.

Blurb:

Born in the Holy Land only a few years after the Third Crusade, half-Armenian, half-Scot Arbela MacLean is a true daughter of the desert, beautiful and untamed. Trained to be a warrior to avoid her gentle mother’s fate, Arbela has honed her skills with Turkish bow and arrow, sword and throwing darts—and dreads the day her father choses a man for her to marry.

After more than thirty years in the Holy Land, Donal MacLean, Baron of Batroun, is recalled to Scotland, the last son available to take up leadership of clan MacLean. He brings with him knights, treasure, trade—and a daughter of marriageable age.
Caelen MacKern, known as the Bull of the Highlands, is cynical about women. His first marriage formed an alliance, and he did not grieve when his spoiled, immature bride passed away. He has agreed to marry again—against his better judgement—for the men, means and coin to recover from a devastating pestilence that all but wiped out his clan.

Though more than a little resentful at finding himself forced to remarry, Caelen’s proposal to Donal MacLean’s headstrong daughter nevertheless piques her interest. Each will receive what they want most from life—the ability to live as they please without interference from a meddling spouse. But their marriage of indifference will soon change to one of passion that neither Arbela nor Caelen could have predicted.
