Welcome back to Medieval Monday! I’m thrilled to have the talented Barbara Bettis here today. We’re featuring The Lady of the Forest, a Knights of Destiny romance.

If you’re following my excerpt from Shadow of the Swan, you can find the ninth snippet of Robert and Constance’s first encounter on Barbara’s blog. Remember to leave a comment there for a chance to win a signed print copy of the book! Here’s the link: www.barbarabettis.blogspot.com

Now, let’s enjoy Barbara’s ninth snippet:

This was the traitor?

Her heart thudded and her breath hitched.

She knew him.

That strong blade of a nose, the firm jaw with its little scar—so familiar, even covered in grime. From childhood, an image flickered. A gangly, laughing squire who teased his sister’s friend.

Henry of Chauvere. Impossible! Stonehill sat leagues from his home.

But if it were Henry, he’d grown into an imposing knight.

Sam’l and Oscar finally got his arms freed from the cumbersome mail and were poised to drag it over his when he groaned.

A little more about the book:

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.
