Greetings, gods and goddesses! We’re back with a brand new season of the #MedievalMondayHop. From now through October, our common theme will center around the hero and heroine’s first encounter. This week, my guest is Barbara Bettis. Barbara has been visiting Arduinna’s Forest since our Medieval Monday group was founded. Today she is offering us a sneak peak at her Medieval Romance, The Lady of the Forest. How fitting!!!
“Jamie, please get my bag. I’ll see to his injuries while we wait.”
“Didn’t the lord order him killed?”
The youth was right. Sir Mortimer promised death to the man he sought. But Kate had yet to learn the offender’s crime.
“If the new master of Stonehill wants anyone dead, he can do it himself.” The words were sharper than she’d intended, and Jamie fixed her with a worried gaze.
Follow along next week at Cathy MacRae’s: http://www.cathymacraeauthor.com/bits-n-bobs-author-blog. Don’t forget to comment for a chance to win an e-copy of The Lady of the Forest.
BLURB: He must pursue his enemy; she must protect her people. Can their love survive the duties that drive them apart?
When her elderly husband dies, Lady Katherine fakes her own death and disappears into the forest with others escaping the brutish new lord. Determined to protect her people, she knocks the wrong man senseless. But Lord Henry isn’t an enemy, he’s the brother of her childhood friend. Although his tender confidence tempts her, she’s bound by duty.
Henry of Chauvere has found the one lady he wants for his own, never mind she’s tied him hand and foot. When he learns the king has ordered her to wed Stonehill’s ruthless new master, he insists Kate seek haven with his sister. But she won’t desert her friends. Henry vows to solve her problem, provided he catches a traitor before the threat from Kate’s past catches her.
When a daring rescue compels Henry and Kate to join forces, their attraction grows into love. If only duty didn’t drive them apart.
