Medieval Monday with Ceci Giltenan!

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 eighth excerpt which is from Ceci Giltenan’s book, A Wee Highland Predicament.

At the end of the post, you will see where to go on the following Monday to find out what happens next.

Excerpt:

Lady MacLennan’s sister? By all the saints, the Galbraiths had managed to find a valuable prize. From everything Lucas had heard about Laird Fingal MacLennan, he tended to be overprotective to a fault. He must have let his guard down in the royal court. Well, their loss was his gain. There was no love lost between the Grants and the MacLennans and this wee morsel would bring the Grants as much ransom as she would the Galbraiths. Of course she didn’t need to know that, so he’d have to tread carefully.

“My mother was a Macrae.” That was perfectly true. Furthermore, the MacLennan’s and the Macraes were on reasonably good terms.

Blurb:

Sometimes a bad boy can be a good man.

Lucas Grant’s brother is going to be furious. Lucas was supposed to secure a betrothal with a wealthy heiress to save his clan from financial ruin. After meeting her, he cannot marry the detestable woman.

As he flees Edinburgh to escape her, he happens upon six men who are holding a lovely Highland lass captive. He can’t just leave her to whatever fate awaits, so he rescues her.

Well, perhaps rescue isn’t the right word…

When he learns the feisty lass he stumbled upon is Ailsa MacLennan, he sees another way to help his clan. He’s going to hold her for ransom.

But when she steals his heart, what will the ransom be?

Excerpt:

She gave him a pleading look and he rolled his eyes in frustration. What next? First she tricked him, then she took him prisoner and now she wanted him to prove himself? Never mind the fact that they were running out of time! Next she’d be asking him to console her…

‘He was supposed to marry your aunt.’ He dredged the memory up from somewhere. ‘Your mother was a younger sister, but he said that once he saw her, he couldn’t marry anyone else. He said she had hair like a sunset.’

‘Red.’ She lifted a hand to her head self-consciously. ‘But my father liked it.’

‘Then we’ve something else in common.’

Blurb:

Ruthless warrior Lothar the Frank has laid siege to Castle Haword, but there’s a fiery redhead in his way—and she’s not backing down!

More tomboy than trembling maiden, Lady Juliana Danville would rather die than lose the castle. When she’s caught on opposite sides of a war, a marriage bargain is brokered to bring peace. But is blissful married life possible when Juliana has a dangerous secret hidden within the castle walls?

Medieval Monday with Elisabeth Hobbes

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 sixth excerpt which is from Elisabeth Hobbesbook, Redeeming the Rogue Knight.

At the end of the post, you will see where to go on the following Monday to find out what happens next.

Excerpt:

Her lip trembled and her voice dropped to a whisper. Her eyes filled with tears that made Roger’s heart break. ‘I owe him money I haven’t got. He suggested another way I could pay the debt.’

Understanding flashed through Roger, followed by revulsion. Lucy was not doing this through love, or even desire.

It was a cold-hearted transaction. Roger wasn’t sure if this was worse or better than believing her in love.

‘You were going to give yourself to him?’

Find next week’s installment on Ashley York’s blog.

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…

Excerpt:

She cleared her throat. “I only wondered if…” Her stomach trembled as he licked sauce from his fingers.

Abruptly, he ignored the food and studied her face. “If what?”

She sighed inwardly. Just say it! “If all your appetites run that strong.”

His intense stare roused something inside her. She’d never felt its like. Heat, not only in her face but her entire body.

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.

At the end of the post, you will see where to go on the following Monday to find out what happens next.

Website: www.bambilynnblog.wordpress.com

Excerpt:

Kenna choked back a sob. The last time she had been in this room, she had prayed for her own death. Now she pleaded silently for the Lord to strike Ty Vass dead where stood. She fantasized about stepping over his dead body, leaving it to wither and rot while she returned to her duties, running the household, raising her daughter, overseeing the welfare of the people she had come to love in the laird’s absence.

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—moreso 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 them in a deadly plot, can the couple find a way to prevent war between the clans?

Website: http://www.RuthACasie.blogspot.com

Excerpt:

She spun around trying to pinpoint a direction and abruptly stopped. Facing south, she licked her lips nervously and tasted the sweetness of fresh water. A rushing sound burst in her ears. The river. Her head snapped east toward the river path and she ran. As she careened down the narrow trail, the outstretched branches tugged at her dress, pulled off her shawl and clawed at her face and arms. She took no notice. The cadence of her footfalls beat out a mantra, not him, not him, not him. She rushed on faster, mumbling enchanted words under her breath.

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 with Mary Morgan!

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 first excerpt which is from Mary Morgan’s book, A Highland Moon Enchantment.

At the end of the post, you will see where to go on the following Monday to find out what happens next.

Website: http://www.marymorganauthor.com

 

Excerpt:

A prickle of awareness skimmed across her skin.

There in the shadows by the stairs, stood Desmond.

Had he been watching her all this time? Her heart pounded as he emerged. Freshly shaven, he wore a dark blue tunic edged in the same silver pattern as her dress. The light from the torches danced off his eyes, illuminating the green within. The man drew her to him with his sweeping gaze, and her knees became weak.

Desmond,” she uttered his name in the hushed entrance.

 

Blurb:

You first meet this warrior in Dragon Knight’s Axe, Order of the Dragon Knights, Book 3

Irish warrior, Desmond O’Quinlan has never surrendered his heart to any woman. He has no wish to have his soul tortured by love. Yet, the moment he locks gazes with Ailsa, his fate is destined for an adventure he never fathomed. He may have battled alongside a Dragon Knight, but his greatest challenge will come from within his own heart.

Ailsa MacDuff, a warrior among her clan, has no desire to have a man chain her to a life of obedience. However, that is before she meets Desmond. The temptation to allow this warrior inside her heart is a risk she dares to take, but one that could lead to a future of emptiness and sorrow.

When betrayal looms from within, the battleground of love is no match for these two warriors. Can the power of a Highland full moon be strong enough to unite or destroy them?

Medieval Monday with Jenna Jaxon!

It’s time for another Medieval Monday blog hop! Our theme is, “First Encounter for the Hero and Heroine”.

  At the end of the post, you will see where to go on the following Monday to find out what happens next.

Website: www.jennajaxon.wordpress.com

Excerpt:

Alyse wanted to fan her hot face, but accompanied him obediently. Indeed, he gave her no choice, for he placed her arm atop his and started toward her table.

At least the humiliation is over.

As if reading her thoughts, Geoffrey shot her a mischievous glance that made her heart leap into her throat then coolly reversed his direction. Instead of taking the direct route to her table, a mere half dozen steps away, his course now included the entire Great Hall. King Edward laughed in approval at his courtier’s boldness as Geoffrey proceeded to stop at every table to present her as his betrothed.

At each one, she silently cursed him anew. Could this great hulking oaf not see her discomfiture? Did he not care about her feelings at all? And she must be married to this man?

See what happens next at Jenna’ blog: http://www.jennajaxon.wordpress.com

BLURB:

The heart can choose, but can it also change?

Lady Alyse de Courcy has fallen in love with Lord Braeton, a nobleman in King Edward III’s court and a man to whom she has barely spoken. Fate, however, has decreed her betrothal to his best friend, Sir Geoffrey Longford—a handsome and imposing knight, yet hardly the man she wants to wed.

When Sir Geoffrey is bound in betrothal by his father, he could not have expected the beautiful stranger to win his heart the moment they meet. But Alyse’s infatuation with his friend casts doubt on whether she can ever return his regard and their wedding day is fast approaching…  Will he have time enough to win her love?

Website: www.barbarabettis.blogspot.com

Excerpt:

Yet her memory had stirred from first glance today. She’d been fifteen when she last saw Henry. This man looked like he might nine years later. Surely two people could not appear the same, down to the scar.

She propped her fists on her hips and pitched her voice low. “You’ve picked the wrong name to claim. We all know Lord Henry’s near an invalid. I’d say you best shut your mouth afore Oscar comes back to shut it for you.”

He didn’t react at all as she’d intended. His chest shook. In laughter?

A rough chuckle confirmed it. “I fear your intelligence-gathering is behind times, lass.”

BLURB:

He must pursue his enemy; she must protect her people. Can their love survive the duties that drive them apart?

When her elderly husband dies, Lady Katherine fakes her own death and disappears into the forest with others escaping the brutish new lord. Determined to protect her people, she knocks the wrong man senseless. But Lord Henry isn’t an enemy, he’s the brother of her childhood friend. Although his tender confidence tempts her, she’s bound by duty.

Henry of Chauvere has found the one lady he wants for his own, never mind she’s tied him hand and foot. When he learns the king has ordered her to wed Stonehill’s ruthless new master, he insists Kate seek haven with his sister. But she won’t desert her friends. Henry vows to solve her problem, provided he catches a traitor before the threat from Kate’s past catches her.

When a daring rescue compels Henry and Kate to join forces, their attraction grows into love. If only duty didn’t drive them apart.
