I love St. Patrick’s Day. For me it signals the arrival of spring and the impending end of the school year. To celebrate, I’ve invited Laurel O’Donnell to join me. Laurel lives in Illinois with her four cherished children, her beloved husband and her five cats. She finds precious time every day to escape into the medieval world and bring her characters to life in her writing. Today she is sharing a snippet from her Medieval Romance, A Knight with Grace.
She dropped her chin as if in confusion.
He stepped toward her. “Grace. I promised to see you safely to your father. I intend to honor that vow.”
BLURB: Lady Grace Willoughby defies her father’s orders to marry Sir William de Tracy and escapes with a friend. She has no intention of wedding a cursed man, a man ostracized from the church, a man who would only doom any future children they might have to the fires of Hell. She prays for a knight to rescue her.
Excommunicated and outcast for a horrible crime in his past, Sir William de Tracy searches for forgiveness. Marriage has never crossed his mind until Lord Willoughby commissions him to retrieve his fleeing daughter and honor the dying wish of his father by marrying Grace.
But things are not as they seem. And when an assassin tries to kill Grace, William must choose between his soul and the woman he has come to love. Can William and Grace overcome their past and find the redemption and love both are so desperately seeking?
