Medieval Monday Blog Hop with Barbara Bettis

Welcome to week 11 of the Medieval Monday Blog Hop. Today I’m hosting Barbara Bettis on my blog and she is hosting me on her blog. Knights down holes and archers scheduled to have their fingers cut off and Kate is their only hope. Can she save them both? Here is her continuing snippet from The Lady of the Forest.
Excerpt
(Kate’s idea sounded chancy , and she hated to think what could happen if it failed. Worse, it might be too effective) and bring unnecessary hardship to innocent folks.
Not far from the bailey wall lay two large downed trees, left to age for fuel, along with other branches and deadwood. Each piece would be trimmed and stacked nearer the castle for use during the coming winter. Until then, all that potential lay waiting. Fire.
Sir Hubert had worried about fire more than attack from an armed force. The old wooden castle presented a particular risk. Once a spark got hold, the whole thing would be a gigantic bonfire. She’d hate that to happen. Not that she cared about Sir Mortimer. Sir Mort, villagers called him behind his back. But she did care about the people. She owed them her duty.

When her elderly husband dies, Lady Katherine fakes her own death and disappears into the forest with others escaping the brutish new lord. Determined to protect her people, she knocks the wrong man senseless. But Lord Henry isn’t an enemy, he’s the brother of her childhood friend. Although his tender confidence tempts her, she’s bound by duty.
Henry of Chauvere has found the one lady he wants for his own, never mind she’s tied him hand and foot. When he learns the king has ordered her to wed Stonehill’s ruthless new master, he insists Kate seek haven with his sister. But she won’t desert her friends. Henry vows to solve her problem, provided he catches a traitor before the threat from Kate’s past catches her.

When a daring rescue compels Henry and Kate to join forces, their attraction grows into love. If only duty didn’t drive them apart.
