Medieval Monday with Kelley Heckart

This is week eight of Medieval Monday. Today I am hosting Kelley Heckart who has a lovely story based on the Arthurian legend. I hope you enjoy her snippet as much as I did.

White Rose of Avalon by Kelley Heckart 

Do you like captivating, passionate historical fantasy featuring King Arthur, Gwenhwyfar, Merlin, Nimue, Morgaine, and Lancelot? Inspired by The Mists of Avalon, this sensual retelling of the Arthurian romances brings these legendary characters to life.
Destiny cannot be altered.
With Britannia falling to the Saxon hordes, Morgaine, Queen of the Faeries, has no choice but to make a pact with the Christian monks. She promises to give them a High King who will unite the Britons against the Saxons if he takes a queen from the faery realm. Morgaine hopes this will restore the Goddess faith and return Avalon to its rightful place. She sends Lancelot to guard the future High King, but when a love potion falls into the wrong hands, all seems lost.
Gwenhwyfar is the only hope for the future, but betrayal, revenge, and forbidden love surround her, all of which could send both Britannia and Avalon into ruins.

Excerpt snippet #8
Morgaine left the stables with a smile. The meadow called to her, pulling at her heart. It was a special place to her, filled with happy memories. She stepped between the two yew trees that shielded her secret meadow. A wooden bridge appeared, and she strode across the marshland. Contented, she followed the tree-lined path to her favorite spot, enjoying the warm spring sun on her face.
