historical romance, Judith Sterling, Medieval Monday, Ruth A. Casie, Soul of the Wolf, The Guardian's Witch
We’re starting a new round of Medieval Monday, and this time, you could win big!
The theme is “First Encounter,” that moment when the hero and heroine first meet. Every Monday for the next 14 weeks, I’ll feature a snippet from a medieval romance and tell you where to find the next bit of the story. If you follow along and comment on every snippet of a particular “first encounter” (14 in all) you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a collection of e-books from the authors of Medieval Monday.
THAT’S 14 FREE E-BOOKS!
My excerpts are from Soul of the Wolf. Ruth A. Casie is sharing the first one today on her blog. Here’s the link: http://ruthacasie.blogspot.com/
But for now, let’s focus on Ruth’s snippet from The Guardian’s Witch, Book One in The Stelton Legacy:
“There aren’t many left in service. The king’s protectors scared them away.” Ann gave the linen a final tug.
“You mean the rumors of the curse.” Bryce’s voice held a bitter edge of cynicism.
“No, not because of the rumors, which are ridiculous, but because over the last two years no one in this castle has cared about the village or the people,” she dipped her head toward Alex. “Except for him.”
“Bryce?” Alex’s whispered words went unheard. Exhausted and in pain, he fought to open his eyes, to no avail. He would not surrender control. Instead he struggled to take in bits and pieces of the conversation.
See what happens next on Lane McFarland’s blog on Monday, August 14! Here’s the link: http://lanemcfarland.com/blog/
A little more about The Guardian’s Witch:
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.
