I just love it when Jenna Jaxon visits the forest. What a special treat for Medieval Monday. Jenna has been reading and writing historical romance since she was a teenager. A romantic herself, she has always loved a dark side to the genre, a twist, suspense, a surprise. She tries to incorporate all of these elements into her own stories. Here is an excerpt from her Medieval Romance, Beleaguered.
EXCERPT: “If he leaves then I leave as well, Papa.” Alyse raised her chin and with quiet conviction turned to Geoffrey and took his hand. “He spoke the truth when he said we are ready to take our nuptial vows.” The look she gave him was filled with so much love it made him catch his breath. “I will marry no other man than Geoffrey Longford.”
Her father snorted. “You will marry whomever I decree, Alyse.’
“On what authority, sire?” She strode toward him, eyes flashing. “I am a widow and you no longer have legal power over me or my decisions.”
Next week Jenna will be at Ruth A. Casie’s blog. http://ruthacasie.blogspot.co.uk
