Medieval Monday Fall 20 - Week Ten

Welcome back to Medieval Monday! To my friends in the United States, have a Wonderful Thanksgiving! I hope you're spending it with family.

This is week ten of the new round of authors, snippets, and fun. Our fall theme is Nature. We’re doing things a bit differently this go-round. We are all posting out snippets on out own blogs. Each week, we will be posting links on the Medieval Romance Lovers Facebook page. You can use the hashtag #medmonfall20 to find all the posts.

I am so excited about this fall’s posts. My new medieval romance, Donald, the third and final book in the Sons of Sagamore series which is part of The Pirates of Britannia Connected World releases October 8th. So sit back and enjoy the snippets. I’ll be posting the buy link as soon as it is available!

Donald: Sons of Sagamore
The Pirates of Britannia Connected World

He surrendered his heart and would give his life for her to succeed.

Andrea Ricard, an inquisitive scholar of antiquities travels with her uncle to help him with his trade business. When she finds her mother’s family name on a piece of a map associated with the location of a rare relic, she is compelled to find it. Nothing will get in her way to unearth its secrets.

Donald MacDougall Tyler Eden has enjoyed carefree life, but over the last year he has found satisfaction working with his brother Hugh, who has a successful investment business. He has forged a close relationship with one of their business partners, Andrea’s uncle. On a visit to Hugh, Donald meets Andrea and is smitten. When Andrea finds that an antique in Hugh’s collection contains another piece to her mysterious map she is more determined than ever to find the relic. Donald is drawn into her adventure and volunteers to accompany her on her quest.

Andrea has only told Donald half-truths for fear he would not join her. The relic is surrounded by mystery and prophecy. A disgraced soldier with hopes of repairing his relationship with the king has found out about the relic and is just as determined as Andrea to secure it for himself.

Andrea and Donald’s belief in what’s right as well as each other will be tested on a journey filled with adventure and hardships as they race across the vineyards of the Champagne region in France, up the east coast of England to an ancient church in Bamburgh.

Can Andrea and her MacDougall warrior resolve the mystery, face the prophecy,
vanquish the villain… and find their happily ever after.

“He’s in great pain from his wound. See how he winces when he stretches for the hand holds,” Andrea said. “Reach to your left, just a bit higher,” she called.

The vicar closed his eyes, his face was ashen.

“We have to hurry and get him across. The effort will quickly sap his strength,” Donald said.

They looked on as the vicar had difficulty placing his foot squarely on the hold. His fingertips slid on the stone. He had gone eight steps but the next one gave way. He clutched at the rocks, but his fingers wouldn’t work. His dangling foot sought another perch.

“Joseph, grab the stone.” Donald commanded calmly.
