It’s time for a new round of Medieval Monday!
For this round, it’s Author’s Choice. We’ve chosen our own themes or a scene we particularly enjoyed writing. My theme is “An Unconventional Wedding Night,” and my excerpt (broken into snippets over the next 14 weeks) is from my upcoming release, Shadow of the Swan. If you comment on my snippets, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a free digital copy (Amazon) of one of my books. Your choice!
Every Monday for the next 13 weeks, I’ll feature a snippet from another author’s medieval romance and tell you where to find the next bit of the story. I’ll also let you know where to find my snippet. On the last (14th) Monday, I’ll feature the end of my excerpt right here on my blog.
Today, Ruth A. Casie is featuring my first snippet on her blog: www.RuthACasie.blogspot.com
I’m featuring hers from The Guardian’s Witch. Let’s take a look!
The berries Lisbeth had gathered tumbled forgotten from her hands. A tremor touched her lips while the vision slammed behind her eyes. She didn’t doubt the vision’s truth. Sometimes a bright light, warm and comforting, accompanied the vision; other times the wind howled, cold and disturbing. Today, panic clearly filled the air.

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.
