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
Excerpt
‘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  www.bambilynnblog.wordpress.com to find out.

The spy who sought refuge... When injured spy Sir Roger Danby comes asking for shelter at her inn, Lucy Carew is wary. 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...

Happy Valentine's Day!


Here?” she whispered to him sweetly.
“We’re alone,” he said discreetly.
“I’ve been good till now!” she sighed.
“But you’re human!” he replied.
“It’s so big!” she hesitated.
“It’s all yours,” he proudly stated.
“Oh, I shouldn’t!” she protested.
“If you love me -!” he suggested.
And so, losing all resistance,
she gave in to his insistence …


and ate every single chocolate in the box!


Happy Valentine’s Day!

with a special thank you to my Valentine and Hallmark Cards.

Tell me about the best Valentine you got - that you can mention in public ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’—

Medieval Monday Blog Hop with Sherry Ewing

Welcome to week 3 of our Medieval Monday Blog Hop. Riorden has brought his new bride home and so far what he’s encountered has not pleased him. Just how bad is it? Today I’m hosting Sherry Ewing from Only For You: The Knights of Berwyck, A Quest Through Time Novel (Book 2)
Excerpt from Only For You:
Cobwebs hung from the dusty tapestries and unused candlesticks, as if the spiders had enjoyed weaving their silvery death traps to their hearts’ content, since no one had disturbed their busy work. The torches hanging in the wall sconces were unlit and only small shafts of light shone down from the few upper windows, giving what light there was to the chamber. It lent a gloomy quality to the room that even he did not wish to linger in. Taking in the conditions around him, he would have thought the place had not been cleaned since his father’s passing. Surely, this could not be true.

Back Cover of Only For You:
Sometimes it’s hard to remember that true love conquers all only after the battle is over…
Katherine de Deveraux has it all or so she believes when she begins her life with her husband Riorden. But as she starts to settle into her duties as the Countess of Warkworth Castle, she finds that an easy life is not only difficult but downright dangerous to her well-being.
Consumed with the haunting memories of his father, Riorden must deal with his sire’s widow who just happens to also be his ex-lover. Yet how could he know just how far Marguerite is willing to go in order to have the life she feels they were truly meant to live?
Torn apart by circumstances neither Katherine nor Riorden could ever imagine, Time becomes their true enemy even while Marguerite continues her ploy to keep Riorden at her side. With all hope lost, will Katherine and Riorden find a way to save their marriage and have their happily ever after ending, or will Katherine be whisked back to where Time truly feels she belongs?

Medieval Monday Blog Hop with Lane McFarland

Welcome to week 2 of Medieval Monday Blog Hop. Heathens! Heathens! The king is calling the steadfast loyal Scotsmen heathens. Well, we see about that. Today I’m hosting Lane McFarland on my blog and she is hosting me on her blog. Here is her continuing snippet from A King’s Enemies.
Excerpt:
Heathens, indeed. Katherine seethed. De Seabrooke was a murdering barbarian.
Cheers erupted. Women dressed in velvet and silk, their hair spun up and pinned atop their heads and jewels caressing their necks, smiled and clapped. The king’s council, resplendent in Edward’s livery, lauded praise upon de Seabrooke.
What fools. If they only knew the monster they honored.
Standing behind Queen Margaret’s ladies-in-waiting, she rubbed her clammy palms down the front of her skirt. No one must suspect she held anything but admiration for the king’s hero.

Blurb:
Tormented by King Edward’s brutality against Scottish sympathizers, Drake Fletcher vows revenge, but only a madman single-handedly attacks the Crown. Instead, he enters the royal court as a spy to aid Robert the Bruce’s rise to power and place a formidable leader on Scotland’s throne.
Scottish lass Katherine Mackenzie Armstrong targets three of King Edward’s officers who brutally raped and murdered her mother. Disguised as one of Queen Margaret’s attendants, she sets a course to destroy the men.
The acts of treason both Drake and Katherine commit are punishable by death in The Tower of London but their determination pushes dangerous limits. Considered enemies, they use each other to gain vital information. Neither expect their overwhelming attraction to one another, the staggering emotions stirred. But the closer they become, the more they jeopardize their pledges of vengeance.
Will the weight of retaliation crush them, see them beheaded? Or will Katherine and Drake form an alliance and learn to live and love again?

Medieval Monday Blog Hop with Judith Sterling

Welcome back to Medieval Monday. We had such a terrific response with our author exchange blog hop that we're doing it again. Today I’m hosting Judith Sterling on my blog and she is hosting me on her blog. Here is her snippet from Shadow of the Swan, Book Three of The Novels of Ravenwood
Excerpt
Sitting without repose on one of the solar’s high-backed chairs, Constance shifted positions. An unexpected chill crept in with the evening. The shutters were closed, and a fire danced and hissed on the hearth. The room was aglow with candles whose light harmonized to showcase the exquisite tapestries on the wall. Vibrant yet vulnerable, the flames quivered at the slightest draft.
Her stomach quivered, too, as she stared at her half-eaten pigeon pie. Whatever made me agree to share his bed? The mention of rats? The thought of a prickly straw mat between her back and the cold, hard floor?

Blurb
Lady Constance de Bret was determined to be a nun, until shadows from the past eclipsed her present.  Marriage is the safest option, but she insists on a spiritual union, in which physical intimacy is forbidden.  Not so easy with a bridegroom who wields unparalleled charm!  But a long-buried secret could taint his affection and cloak her in shadow forever.
Back from the Crusades, Sir Robert le Donjon craves a home of his own and children to inherit it.  From the moment he meets Constance, he feels a mysterious bond between them.  When she’s threatened, he vows to protect her and agrees to the spiritual marriage, with the hope of one day persuading her to enjoy a “real” one.  She captivates him but opens old wounds and challenges everything he thought he believed.
Two souls in need of healing.  Two hearts destined to beat as one.
