Welcome back to Medieval Monday! I’m excited to have the talented Elisabeth Hobbes here today, and we’re featuring her medieval romance, Beguiled by the Forbidden Knight.
If you’re following my excerpt from Shadow of the Swan, you can find the second snippet of Robert and Constance’s first encounter on Elisabeth’s blog. Remember to leave a comment there for a chance to win a signed print copy of the book! Here’s the link: https://elisabethhobbes.co.uk
Now, let’s enjoy Elisabeth’s second snippet:
At first Gui had mistaken her for a child: partly because of her manner, but mainly because she was so slightly built. Now she was closer he could make out the shape of small breasts beneath her shift and the blossoming curve of hips as she twisted and bent to unlace her shoes.
She was more woman than child.
Faced with this new evidence Gui gulped in surprise. He lowered himself further beneath the water, conscious of his own nakedness. Fortunately for Gui’s composure the girl did not do as he had done and shed every layer. She hitched up the skirt of her shift and waded purposefully into the water to her knees. Just as Gui had done she shivered in the cold. Beneath the water Gui grinned to himself in sympathy as another shudder racked his body.
You can catch up with Gui and the mysterious girl next week on Cathy MacRae’s blog: https://www.cathymacraeauthor.com/bits-n-bobs-author-blog
