Welcome to another Medieval Monday! We’ve reached the halfway point in our nature theme, so it’s a good thing today’s snippet from Shadow of the Swan features a little nature. Finally!
As usual, you can find links to the other participating authors’ excerpts on Facebook. Just visit the Medieval Romance Lovers page here! (#MedMonFall20) And now…Snippet #6:
At week’s end, shortly before supper, she stood alone on the bridge above Woden’s Pond. A swan glided across the calm water, creating symmetrical ripples that stretched beyond the bird’s wake.
With head tilted, Constance followed its progress. Our actions influence everything around us, just as the swan affects the pond.
A little more about the book:
Lady Constance de Bret was determined to be a nun, until shadows from the past eclipsed her present. Marriage is the safest option, but she insists on a spiritual union, in which physical intimacy is forbidden. Not so easy with a bridegroom who wields unparalleled charm! But a long-buried secret could taint his affection and cloak her in shadow forever.
Back from the Crusades, Sir Robert le Donjon craves a home of his own and children to inherit it. From the moment he meets Constance, he feels a mysterious bond between them. When she’s threatened, he vows to protect her and agrees to the spiritual marriage, with the hope of one day persuading her to enjoy a “real” one. She captivates him but opens old wounds and challenges everything he thought he believed.
Two souls in need of healing. Two hearts destined to beat as one.
