Medieval Monday Blog Hop with Jenna Jaxon

Welcome to week 8 of the Medieval Monday Blog Hop. I’m hosting Jenna Jaxon on my blog and she is hosting me on her blog. A marriage of convenience and a bedding.  Hmmmm, not so convenient. What are Thomas and Alyse  to do? Alone. Together. In bed? Everyone else on the other side of the curtain? Here is a continuing snippet from Betrayal
The embarrassment in her voice brought to mind the image of her cheeks, now likely as scarlet as her gown had been. ’Sblood, the girl was no innocent maid.
“Yes, ’tis the usual course of things. ’Tis not looked on as shameful, but as a validation of the wedding vows.” He paused, ran his fingers along the length of her jaw. “So you do not wish to lie with me tonight?”
She sniffed. “What choice do I have?”
“The choice will always be yours, Alyse. I vowed not to force you, and I never break my vows.”
Follow along next week on Bambi Lynn’s blog
          The worst betrayals come from within.
After a night of passion with her betrothed, Sir Geoffrey Longford, Lady Alyse de Courcy is eagerly looking forward to her wedding. But when Geoffrey is forced to marry another, a heartbroken and possibly pregnant Alyse finds herself in her own private hell. She must either gamble with her reputation or marry someone she does not love.
A reputed connoisseur of women, Thomas, Lord Braeton, has dallied with many ladies of King Edward’s court, although he has favored none. However, as Geoffrey’s best friend, Thomas has sworn to serve and protect Alyse, an oath now sorely tested when he agrees to marry her—in name only—to guard her reputation. Yet, as they grow closer, and Thomas discovers Alyse’s sweet but spirited nature, he comes to desire a marriage in truth.
Can he overcome her memory of Geoffrey, or is Thomas doomed to burn with passion for a woman he can never possess?

Medieval Monday Blog Hop with Laurel O'Donnell

Welcome to week 7 of the Medieval Monday Blog Hop. I’m hosting Laurel O’Donnell on my blog and she is hosting me on her blog. Grace’s gesture to give William a blanket to ward off the cold night while they camped outdoors nearly led to dire consequences. William’s sword lay at his feet. How much worse can he feel? Here is her continuing snippet from A Knight with Grace
    Much more confident than he felt. He had seen so much blood, in the wars, in the death of the archbishop, at the hands of others, by his own hand. It was instinct for him to protect himself with a weapon. But he never wanted to raise a blade to her. “I don’t want to. That’s why you should stay on your side of the camp.”
Please join me for the continuing excerpt next week at Bamib Lynn’s blog –
Lady Grace Willoughby defies her father’s orders to marry Sir William de Tracy and escapes with a friend. She has no intention of wedding a cursed man, a man ostracized from the church, a man who would only doom any future children they might have to the fires of Hell. She prays for a knight to rescue her.
Excommunicated and outcast for a horrible crime in his past, Sir William de Tracy searches for forgiveness. Marriage has never crossed his mind until Lord Willoughby commissions him to retrieve his fleeing daughter and honor the dying wish of his father by marrying Grace.
But things are not as they seem. And when an assassin tries to kill Grace, William must choose between his soul and the woman he has come to love. Can William and Grace overcome their past and find the redemption and love both are so desperately seeking?

“North? I can’t go north. We need to head back to Edinburgh.”
“Is that where they snatched ye?”
“Then don’t ye suppose that’s where they’d expect ye to go? And when they wake to find ye gone, that’s the direction they’ll search?”
“I guess so.”
“Then wouldn’t it make sense to go a different direction?”
“Aye, but I have to get back to Edinburgh.”

But when she steals his heart, what will the ransom be?

Medieval Monday Blog Hop with Jenni Fletcher

Welcome to week 5 of the Medieval Monday Blog Hop. I’m hosting Jenni Fletcher on my blog and she is hosting me on her blog. Lady Juliana may have Lothar as her captive, but her defeat is eminent. What will she do? Here is her continuing snippet from Besieged and Betrothed
'Once a battle starts, it’s hard to stop. I can’t vouch for Sir Guian’s men and I can’t change the rules of combat either. If you surrender after the assault begins, they’ll have the right to do whatever they want with your home and your belongings. Your women, too.’
‘There aren’t any women.’
‘None?’ He frowned. ‘What about your maids?’
‘I sent them away for their own safety.’ She gestured vaguely towards the river. ‘There’s a village on the other side. The water protects them better than our walls can.’
‘You’re telling me that you’re the only woman here?’ He closed his eyes briefly. ‘Sweet mercy! Surrender. Now.’

Ruthless warrior Lothar the Frank has laid siege to Castle Haword, but there’s a fiery redhead in his way—and she’s not backing down!
More tomboy than trembling maiden, Lady Juliana Danville would rather die than lose the castle. When she’s caught on opposite sides of a war, a marriage bargain is brokered to bring peace. But is blissful married life possible when Juliana has a dangerous secret hidden within the castle walls?

Medieval Monday Blog Hop with Elisabeth Hobbes

Welcome to week 4 of the Medieval Monday Blog Hop. Roger has Lucy right where he wants her. Or does he? Today I’m hosting Elisabeth Hobbes on my blog and she is hosting me on her blog. Here is her continuing snippet from Redeeming the Rogue Knight
‘What are you doing here?’ Lucy asked through gritted teeth. ‘How did you find me?’
‘I won the game and the purse. I wanted to tell you, but you weren’t where I had left you,’ Roger said. Remembering the plans he had been making on his way there, he felt his temper surge.
‘Is that Robbie’s father?’
‘No!’ She stiffened in his arms.
‘Is he your lover?’
Was this the reason she had refused him? The miller already had a claim on her affections.

Does the miller have a claim on Lucy? Follow along next week on Bambi Lynn’s blog to find out.

He may be strikingly handsome, but the disgraced single mother has learned the hard way with men like him. Against her better judgment, she gives him refuge. Sir Roger has never been at the mercy of a woman before, and he's never met one as mysterious and bewitching as Lucy. He hasn't come looking for redemption, but Lucy is a woman who could reach in and touch his closely guarded heart...
