It’s time for another Medieval Monday blog hop! Our theme is, “Author’s Choice”. Each author has selected an excerpt from one of their books to share with you over the next few months.
I’m excited to share the fourth excerpt which is from Judith Sterling’s book, Shadow of the Swan. It’s the third book in The Novels of Ravenwood series.
At the end of the post, you will see where to go on the following Monday to find out what happens next.

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.
