Medieval Monday with Mary Morgan - Excerpt 6

 Welcome back to Medieval Monday! This is week six of the new round of authors, snippets, and fun. Our spring theme is the first kiss. Today I am hosting Mary Morgan and her great story, Magnar.

Let me catch you up. Elspeth is in a bind. Ordered to marry Magnar is beyond her comprehension. Will she acquiesce for the sake of her seven year-old nephew, the designated clan chieftain? What will she tell him?

Here is excerpt 6 from Magnar by Mary Morgan.

She grimaced from his words but kept her chin held high. “I won’t let him be hardened.”

“You ken nothing of the responsibility,” he snapped. Turning from her censure, Magnar went back to the stream. “I understand I am not a husband you favor. Nevertheless, as marriage to me, we can undo this pact your brother made.”

She stomped the ground with her foot. “I will not be forced to marry a…a heathen!”

The Wolves of Clan Sutherland, Book 1

By Mary Morgan

The Wolf surrenders to no one.

Known as the Barbarian, Magnar MacAlpin is a fierce ruler for those under his command. As leader of the Wolves of Clan Sutherland, his loyalty and obedience lies with Scotland. However, the king’s last demand is not something Magnar will tolerate.

After Elspeth Gunn’s brother the Chieftain of Castle Steinn is murdered, she flees with her nephew, and finds safety amongst a band of men who are rumored to be part wolf. When the king forces her to wed a heathen Northman, she fears losing her heart and soul not only to the man, but the beast as well.

In order to restore peace to a shattered clan, Magnar and Elspeth travel a treacherous path that challenges their beliefs. When evil seeks to destroy ancient traditions, will Magnar be compelled to restrain his wolf or allow him free to protect those he loves?
