Medieval Monday Blog Hop - First Encounter - Judith Sterling

Welcome back to Medieval Monday. We had such a terrific response when we did snippets of a scene that built week after week until you have the entire scene that we're doing it again. This time we're doing an author exchange (Judith on my blog and I'm on her's) and it's all about our hero and heroine's first encounter.

Today I'm hosting Judith Sterling. Here is snippet number one from Soul of the Wolf.

            The clouds swirled, the breeze sang, and the meadow cushioned her fleet steps.  Tomorrow her fate would be sealed, but this moment was hers.

            A low hill rose before her.  Pausing, she breathed deeply of the crisp air and the scent of pine needles.  She removed her brown mantle, tossed it over her arm, and started up the hill.  Not far ahead, a bird’s caw mingled with the rustle of leaves.

            And there was another sound, deep and low.  A male voice.  A smooth, rich timbre interwoven with the wind.  It wended its way into her ears like music.

Soul of the Wolf – Blurb

A Norman loyalist, Lady Jocelyn bristles when ordered to marry Wulfstan, a Saxon sorcerer. She nurses a painful secret and would rather bathe in a cesspit than be pawed by such a man...until her lifelong dream of motherhood rears its head.

A man of magic and mystery, Wulfstan has no time for wedded bliss. He fears that consummating their marriage will bind their souls and wrench his focus from the ancient riddle his dying mother begged him to solve. He's a lone wolf, salving old wounds with endless work. But Jocelyn stirs him as no woman ever has.

Their attraction is undeniable. Their fates are intertwined. Together, they must face their demons and bring light to a troubled land.
