Welcome back to Medieval Monday! I’m pleased to have Barbara Bettis with me today, and I’m featuring her work, The Lady of the Forest.
If you’re following my excerpt from Shadow of the Swan, you can find the seventh snippet of Robert and Constance’s unconventional wedding night on Barbara’s blog: www.barbarabettis.blogspot.com
Now, let’s enjoy her seventh snippet:
Sam’l had allowed her to continue searching, to actually capture another, when he knew the real traitor already lurked at Stonehill? Why? Then she realized another import of Jamie’s words.
“When did he say so?” Kate crossed to the table in two strides. “How did you hear?”
“Before they met the soldiers.” Jamie wiped his greasy fingers on the bottom of his tunic. “Sam’l leaned in right close and told him, but I heard. Sam’l can’t whisper for nothing.”

A little more about The Lady of the Forest:
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.
