Medieval Monday Blog Hop - Rue Allyn

Here is the next snippet in our Medieval Monday Blog Hop. My guest today is Rue Allyn. 
Excerpt Four – Knight Errant by Rue Allyn
“What do you want, Senor Caprizzi?”
“Food, dona. I have brought you food.”
Her stomach rumbled, reminding her that she had not broken her fast this day. How much could it hurt to let the host hand her some food? A great deal if anyone else was with him. She had to get rid of him.
“I cannot come to the door right now. Put the food on the floor nearby. I will get it later.”
“I will wait for you, dona.”
“No need. ’Twill be some time before I can come to the door. I insist you go about your business.” She waited.
“As you wish,” the landlord mumbled.
A moment or two later the sound of his footsteps trailed away down the hall.

Medieval Monday Blog Hop - Lane McFarland

Excerpt Three
LINDSEY by Lane McFarland
 She could do this.
As a messenger who routinely delivered missives behind enemy lines for the rebellion, she should be used to danger, but she rarely found herself in such an unsavory position. Aye, she could outrun and outmaneuver any man on horseback, but this assignment was different. Hamish, a rebel leader, had given explicit orders to convey a message to the Scots’ commander and leave, but she had not counted upon learning of Logan’s capture.
Her friend needed her.
Swallowing hard, she continued her plunge into purgatory. Upon reaching the bottom step, she hunched her shoulders and shuffled toward the menacing group. Grit crunched beneath her feet and stagnant water soaked the hem of her overly large gown. More tormented howls reverberated through the thick dungeon walls. Her body quaked as she fought to retain composure and pretend the wails did not affect her.

The Daughters of Alastair MacDougall Series
Set in late thirteenth century Scotland, this series tells the stories of Laird Alastair MacDougall’s four independent and oftentimes, headstrong daughters coming of age in a country fraught with war and feuds amongst rival clans. Follow his daughters as their lives become intertwined with four fierce, rebel highland warriors bent on eradicating the English soldiers from their homeland.
Who said life was fair? Certainly not Lindsey MacDougall. She rebels at a world dominated by men. Dressed in lad’s clothing, she manages her father’s stables, caring for, breeding and selling horses. Unwavering on performing her duty to the rebellion, Lindsey throws caution to the wind and secretly delivers missives behind enemy lines to the Scottish warriors.
Logan Ross uses his happy-go-lucky smile to warm the hearts of many willing lasses, but it also masks his pain—the pain of his birth. As a bastard son, he is unacceptable for any Laird’s daughter, including the spirited Lindsey MacDougall. However, she haunts his dreams. Determined to prove his worth, he throws himself into the middle of the rebellion, leading men into mortal danger.
After helping Logan escape from a brutal English dungeon, Lindsey fights her traitorous attraction to the virile highland warrior, vowing never to lose her heart to any man.

Medieval Monday Blog Hop - Bambi Lynn

EXCERPT #2 – Lucan by Bambi Lynn
“Aye. Ye killed my father, Lucan Munro. Today is your day of reckoning.”
Lucan would have attacked him then, but a cry of sheer terror halted him where he stood. Angus Comyn stepped from the shadows. He had Neala in his clutches. Lucan’s heart fell. Angus held a knife beneath her chin. The sharp blade had nicked her and a trickle of her precious blood ran down her slender throat.

Medieval Monday Blog Hop - Ruth A. Casie

We're doing something totally different for the next thirteen weeks. Medieval Monday will be all about villains but instead of seeing the same excerpt rotating on our blogs you will see snippets of a great scene that build week after week until you have the entire scene.

Excerpt One: The Highlander’s English Woman by Ruth A. Casie
Jamie turned to the family sitting around the hearth. Wesley slouched in his chair staring at the fire, grief still raw on his face. He had aged over the year. His gray hair thinned, his eyes rimmed red and dulled with pain.
“He’s been like this since we buried... the burial.” Laura, Richard’s sister, was next to him. “Father tires easily and stays locked up inside himself. Mother is the sole person who can reach him, although I have hope. Alex did make him laugh.”
