Medieval Monday with Rue Allyn - Excerpt #3

This is the third week of our Medieval Monday. Today, I'm hosting Rue Allyn. An intrusion. She has a dagger up her sleeve. What will Julianna do next?

Excerpt #3
 “Antonio, search the room. I’m certain we will find evidence of her Beguine heresies.” Basti never broke eye contact with her the entire time. She couldn’t hold back one small shiver.

The man did as ordered.

It wouldn’t take long, she knew, before the oiled packets containing Angelina’s letters sewn into the lining of her cloak were discovered.
The sound of rending cloth proved Antonio’s efficiency. “Here, Fratello.”

Be sure to leave a comment for Rue to be in the running for her giveaway -- an eCopy of Knight Errant. A winner will be randomly selected and announced on Medieval Monday, September 9, 2019.

Knight Errant ~ Knight Chronicles Book 1

Set during the early days of the Inquisition, Sir Robert Clarwyn must find a way to compel Lady Juliana Verault to return to England, or he’ll lose any chance of regaining his family lands and redeeming his heritage. Yet Juliana must complete her mission to ensure a safe future for  her gender in the church. With danger and intrigue mounting, Robert and Juliana must rely on each other and risk everything … including their hearts.

Oh, yikes! Can't wait to see how she gets out of this!

Rue Allyn said...

My thanks to you all. Juliana is nothing if not inventive, but she's pretty much cornered in this scene..

Judith Sterling said...

A tense moment! Great excerpt, Rue.

Cyndi Bennett said...

Can you feel the tension and fear! Just a few paragraphs and I'm sitting on edge...๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Rue Allyn said...

Thank you Cyndi. If I'm lucky, I'll find another piece of history with this much suspense in it. :)
