Medieval Monday with Cathy MacRae - Excerpt 5

Welcome back to Medieval Monday. This is the fifth excerpt.
This excerpt finds Cary in quiet a pickle. A Welsh princess running from King Edward's army on a ship under attack by... is that Vikings? I can't wait to read more.

Excerpt #5

He glanced past her and found Carys at the bow, the Norse spear hefted familiarly in one hand, an instant away from being plunged back into the heart of the pirate ship. The deep gouge where it had struck the deck gleamed, a pale wound in the aged wood.

The Highlander’s Welsh Bride

It was over. Prince Llywelyn was dead, his soldiers fleeing before King Edward’s army. Carys, a distant cousin to the prince, herself a princess of Wales, had picked up arms alongside her husband more than a year ago. Now homeless, her husband buried beneath the good Welsh soil, she seeks shelter in the north, far from the reach of Longshanks’s men. Carys and Wales would never be the same again.
Birk MacLean has been ordered to take a bride and produce an heir. He grows weary of the lasses paraded before him, women of delicate nature and selfish motives. He desires a wife strong enough to help lead one of the most powerful clans in Western Scotland.
One like the Welsh woman sitting in his dungeon, arrested for poaching MacLean deer.
Can Birk convince Carys marriage to him is preferable to a hangman’s noose? And will the heard-headed Scot be worthy of a Princess of Wales?
From the towering Welsh mountains to the storm-swept Scottish coast comes a tale of betrayal and loss, deceit and passion. An epic tale of honor and the redeeming power of love.
