Medieval Monday Blog Hop with Ashley York

Welcome to week 9 of the Medieval Monday Blog Hop. Today I’m hosting Ashley York on my blog and she is hosting me on her blog. Lady Juliana may have Marcán may be taken with the slave girl Merewyn but it is Astrid he desires. What will he do? Here is her continuing snippet from Eyes of the Seer, Book 2 in The Derbfine Series

“Do not venture out again,” Astrid said to the slave.
Marcán could not be certain Merewyn did not glance his way before she obeyed her mistress. His attention was elsewhere.
Astrid swallowed, her neck exposed now, the bruise he’d seen earlier barely visible. It was enough to remind him that he had things to settle with her. A good reason to keep her in his company.
“Sit.” He indicated the spot beside him.
“Let me see to yer bath, Marcán.”
Dumbfounded, he simply stared at her retreating back.

Follow what happens to Marcán and Astrid next week on Cathy MacRae’s blog


In ancient Ireland, men and women take to the legends for answers. Different-colored eyes are the mark of a Seer, it is said, and those who can see the future are in league with the devil. They cannot be suffered to live.

He wishes to prove himself…

Marcán of Clonascara bears the bloodline of Brian Boru, the legendary high king, and his prowess as a warrior has earned him great respect. But he was born with different-colored eyes, and there are some who would have him suffer a Seer’s fate. His fiercest adversary is Beibhinn, mother to Diarmuid, his close friend and king, and Astrid, the woman who holds his heart. If Astrid ever showed him any interest, he would fight Beibhinn and any army to wed her.

She is desperate to escape…

Astrid is sick of her mother’s belittling, but her brother is in no hurry to see her married, so she decides to see to her own match-making. The man she approaches quickly reveals his lack of honor, but her overbearing mother pushes her to wed him anyway. When Astrid discovers
Marcán’s love for her, she realizes that what she wants has been in front of her all along. True happiness awaits them, but only if they can put a stop to her mother’s plans.

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.”
