Welcome back to Medieval Monday and Week Three of our “First Encounter” theme!
If you’re following the moment when my hero and heroine meet in Soul of the Wolf, you can find the third snippet on Jenna Jaxon’s blog: http://www.jennajaxon.wordpress.com
But let’s focus on Jenna’s third snippet from Betrothal:
“I beg pardon, sire.” She hurried from behind the table, too aware of all the eyes now on her. As she moved to stand before the king, the low drone of many voices rose around the room.
“I’d not want to be in her place.”
“Do you think the king will…”
Each snatch of conversation made her heart beat faster.
What will he do to me?
Her normal embarrassment at being the center of attention tripled at the thought of this blatant lapse of protocol. She stopped several feet from the dais and the room hushed as though everyone held their breath.
See what happens next on Ashley York’s blog on Monday, August 28! Here’s the link: https://www.ashleyyorkauthor.com/blog
A little more about Betrothal:
The heart can choose, but can it also change?
Lady Alyse de Courcy has fallen in love with Lord Braeton, a nobleman in King Edward III’s court and a man to whom she has barely spoken. Fate, however, has decreed her betrothal to his best friend, Sir Geoffrey Longford—a handsome and imposing knight, yet hardly the man she wants to wed.
When Sir Geoffrey is bound in betrothal by his father, he could not have expected the beautiful stranger to win his heart the moment they meet. But Alyse’s infatuation with his friend casts doubt on whether she can ever return his regard and their wedding day is fast approaching… Will he have time enough to win her love?
