Welcome back to Medieval Monday! I’m thrilled to have my friend Barbara Bettis here today. We’re featuring her medieval romance, For This Knight Only, part of her Knights of Destiny series.
If you’re following my “Bad Guy” excerpt from Shadow of the Swan, you can find the seventh snippet on Barbara’s blog here. Remember to leave a comment there for a chance to win digital copies of the first three books in The Novels of Ravenwood series!
Now, let’s enjoy Barbara’s “Bad Guy” snippet:
Looking smug, Paxton added, “As for Sir Martin and his three, the king believes they died defending him. I, myself, am recovering from wounds at a snug little farmhouse with excellent ale stocked by a charming widow.”
John nodded once. “That is the story, then. Go home. Clean yourself up and rest.”
Paxton had turned when he heard, “You identified Cantleigh?” At a nod, John drawled, “Was anything found on him?”
Incriminating evidence, perhaps? Are you becoming careless in your panic?
To brush up on last week’s installment, visit Barbara on Ruth A. Casie’s blog and comment to be entered in a drawing for a free eBook.

A little more about the book:
He’ll do anything for land, even marry her; she’ll do anything for her people, except marry him. If only either had a choice. It’s a marriage only love can save.
Sir Roark will do anything to gain land, even beguile an unwilling lady into marriage. He knows she’s much better off with a man to take control of her besieged castle, to say nothing of her desirable person. But it isn’t long before he discovers that, although her eyes sparkle like sunlight on sea waves, her stubbornness alone could have defeated Saladin.
Lady Alyss is determined to hold her family’s castle, protect her people, and preserve her freedom— until her brother’s dying wish binds her to a stranger. Still, she’ll allow no rugged, over-confident, appealing knight to usurp her authority, even if she must wed him. Especially since he thinks a lady’s duties begin and end with directing servants. Alyss has a few surprises for her new all-too-tempting lord.
But when a common enemy threatens everything, Roark and Alyss face a startling revelation. Without love, neither land nor freedom matters.
