Welcome back to Medieval Monday! It’s Week Eight of our “First Encounter” theme.
If you’re following the moment when my hero and heroine meet in Soul of the Wolf, you can find the eighth snippet on Nicole Locke’s blog: http://nicolelocke.com Like Nicole’s story, Soul of the Wolf embraces the magic of the Yuletide.
Now, let’s check out the eighth snippet from Her Christmas Knight:
Other features of this warrior were different, too. His blond hair did not wave around his shoulders, but was cut short, its curls tamed to just behind his ears. His skin was not pale from the clouds and mist of a small town, but was sun-baked. Underneath the torchlight his face was all hard, lean planes and too fierce for softness. There were lines, too, around his eyes—not from laughter, but from determination. His lips, which curved sensuously and were made for smiling, were instead turned down deeply.
None of this seeming harshness hid the sheer beauty of his features. No, this man’s perfection was marred by a nose that crooked a little to the left.

A little more about Her Christmas Knight:
A knight to protect her—this Yuletide
By order of the English king, Alice of Swaffham searches London nobility for the traitor dealing information to the Scots. Little does she know that the mysterious spy she seeks is the man she once loved and thought she’d lost forever…
If Hugh of Shoebury felt unworthy of Alice before, as the Half-Thistle spy he can never claim her heart. Now he must fight to keep not only his dark secrets—and Alice—safe from a vengeful king…but also his burning longing for her at bay!
