Welcome back to Medieval Monday! It’s the eighth and final week of our “Family” theme. As promised, I have the last snippet of my excerpt from Flight of the Raven. Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win the eBook, or if you already have it, your choice of another of my books. I’ll announce the winner next Monday, December 31. So without further ado…
“Lady Ravenwood wants what I cannot give.”
Robert raised an eyebrow. “And that is?”
“Love,” William said, as though naming a disease.
“She wants what is her due.”
“Because I slid a wedding band onto her finger?”
“No. Because of what she’s given you.”
His jaw tightened. “She won’t give me an heir. That much I know.”
“Well, you’d better listen to what I know. You’re happier at Ravenwood than you’ve been in years.”
Emma’s violet eyes and spirited smile raided William’s thoughts. “ʼTis fleeting, Robert. Mere moments of happiness.”
“A lifetime can be built from such moments…if you allow it.”
And there you have it! Here’s a bit more about the book:
How eager would the bridegroom be if he knew he could never bed the bride?
Lady Emma of Ravenwood Keep is prepared to give Sir William l’Orage land, wealth, and her hand in marriage. But her virginity? Not unless he loves her. The curse that claimed her mother is clear: unless a Ravenwood heir is conceived in love, the mother will die in childbirth. Emma is determined to dodge the curse. Then William arrives, brandishing raw sensuality which dares her to explore her own.
William the Storm isn’t a man to be gainsaid. He’ll give her protection, loyalty, and as much tenderness as he can muster. But malignant memories quell the mere thought of love. To him, the curse is codswallop. He plans a seduction to breach Emma’s fears and raze her objections. What follows is a test of wills and an affirmation of the power of love.
