It’s time for another Medieval Monday blog hop! Our theme is, “Hero and heroine first encounter”. 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 from Rue’s book, The Herald’s Heart . At the end of the post, you will see where to go on the following Monday to find out what happens next.
Royal herald, Sir Talon Quereste could never love an overly adventurous, impulsive, argumentative woman of dubious background who threatens everything he values. Lady Larkin Roshan can only despise a man who would deny her identity and steal her heritage. So why has fate thrown them together to solve the mysteries of the heart?
Ghosts! Stones from hell! Nonsense is what it was.
His mount came to an abrupt halt. What now? Try as he might, he could not make the beast move forward. Talon twisted to look behind him. The fog had swallowed all sign of human habitation. The villagers’ absurd fears kept them warm and dry within the alehouse, while his sensible disbelief that Hades somehow escaped its bounds left him cold, wet, and stranded in an impenetrable mist, unable to determine either the way forward or the road back—on a horse gone mad with stubbornness.
Don’t forget, commenters each week will be entered into a drawing for a free digital copy of THE MAXWELL GHOST.
