Medieval Monday with Bambi Lynn

Mask of the Highlander
 by Bambi Lynn

Welcome to the tenth snippet in this series. Today I am hosting Bambi Lynn. Her story is magical, about the gods. One god in particular is quite handsome and has driven Demona crazy. So crazy that her husband is out for revenge. Can Arduinna, the goddess of justice help them both? Read on…

Once she was afraid to touch him. Now she’s afraid to let go.

Forced to marry to avoid war between clans, Kenna Cleary endured three days of her new husband's painful brutality, unaware of his demon heritage. Leaving her for dead, he rode off to battle the English. In the five years of his absence, she bore him a daughter, increased his holdings, and gained the love and respect of his people. Now he's home. Must she and the clan learn to endure his cruelty once more?

Can an ancient Celtic god find peace in the mortal world?

The Laird of Domhnul has returned from war a changed man—more so than his wife can possibly know. Now the warrior faces a new battle, one for his wife's heart, and his peoples' trust. He must walk the knife's edge of deception and danger, all while learning to manage the supernatural power flaring inside him and discovering a heritage he never imagined. 

But when his father embroils both them in a deadly plot, can the couple find a way to prevent war between their clans? 


“They no longer call it that,” she said. She could sense Demona’s jealousy behind her and smiled. Whatever she wanted, Arduinna would not make it easy for her.
“What?” Demona asked, her voice dripping with frustration.
Celtia. I believe the humans call it Francia now.”
“I do not give a fairy’s tit what they call it,” she shrieked, drawing an indignant yammer from the fairies flitting overhead. “I want you to get him out of here before Ankou finds him and drags him to the Otherworld.”
She had to dig deep for the strength do so, but Arduinna let her hand slide from Ioeannan’s cheek, then pushed to her feet. “Why me?”
