Huzzah, Medieval Romance Lovers! Welcome back to another round of Medieval Monday. Here you may discover new authors writing about love in our favorite time period. Our theme this time around is nature, my favorite. My guests today are from the sensational writing team of Cathy and DD MacRae. Cathy and DD just released the 6th book in their Hardy Heroines Series. Today they share an excerpt from their #MedievalRomance, The Prince’s Highland Bride.
BLURB: Phillipe de Poitiers, a prince of Antioch, finds himself a breath away from wrongful execution. Risking everything, he leaves behind his crown, his family, his country—and a body sworn to be his by the Bishop, himself.
Free of court intrigue and drawn to Scotland by memories of a woman who once possessed his heart, Phillipe sells his sword to pay for his travels and accepts the task of guarding the daughter of Laird MacLaren.
When Maggie MacLaren’s abusive marriage fails, she wants nothing more than to retire to her childhood home on the banks of Loch Lomond. Trouble follows her, putting her clan in danger, and she travels to the Isle of Hola, placing her safety in the hands of a mysterious mercenary with a haunted smile and a kind heart.
As Maggie and Phillipe struggle with their pasts, love blooms. But when a pirate’s treasure offers a seductive lure, will it free them—or prove the downfall of all they hold dear?

EXCERPT: Nature can provide beauty and inspiration. It can also bring danger. Maggie’s island is a place of solace and great beauty, but it is also completely without defenses, something Phillipe must correct before he completes his task of protecting the woman he has come to love—and says good-bye to her forever.
Phillipe’s lips thinned. “I know why ye fled Narnain.”
Heat rushed through Maggie. Anger. Embarrassment. “’Tis behind me. None will follow me to this isle.” Alarm rose. She raised her hands as if to ward off his words. “They could no longer have interest in me.”
Phillipe took her hand, his thumb running a gentling motion across her skin. “I wish I was wrong, but word will soon filter out that the former Countess of Mar has taken residence on the Isle of Hola.”
