week # 10
I'm thrilled to have Lane McFarland on my Medieval Monday blog today. You'll find my excerpt from The Highlander's Crusader Bride on her blog here: http://www.lanemcfarland.com/blog/
Lane's excerpt is from her book, Cameron, The Daughters of Alastair MacDougall: Book 1.
The celebration has been a merry one. Here's a glimpse of what happens next.
“It really is getting late, and I must go in.” When she moved to leave, Robert stepped in front of her and blocked her path.
“Wait.” He hesitated. “I’d like to thank ye for yer care of my family and my people.”
Cameron tilted her head. Did he try to make amends? “Ye’re welcome.”
The breeze blew a lock of hair onto her face. Robert brushed it away, his rough fingers tracing a line down her cheek. He slowly lowered his head, placing his mouth on hers in a sweet, gentle kiss. He straightened and briefly hesitated before capturing her lips in a more possessive, seductive manner. His tongue slid into her mouth, and he wrapped his arms around her, pulling her hard against his body.
She molded to him. Her hands eased up his chest and around his neck, her fingers entwining in his soft hair. She relished the feel of his strong embrace, his hands roaming across her back. She inhaled his male scent of leather mixed with ale, while his mouth played havoc on her senses. Her heart beat wildly, and her body trembled.

week # 9
Happy Medieval Monday! Today, Ashley York brings us a snippet from her book, Daughter of the Overking.

Darragh's bride has been whisked away. Waiting and speculating couldn't be more difficult.
“They want to be certain she cooperates with the bedding.”
Darragh glanced toward the heavens. Then he shook his head in disbelief. “And not a spot of wine or mead to dull her reactions to me, to her first experience of intimacy with a man? This is going to be hell.”
The two men stared at each other, neither one daring to speak their morbid thoughts.
“And how will this play out?” Darragh asked, admittedly afraid to hear the answer.
“The ladies will come to the hall and escort ye to her once they’ve prepared her.”

Her lips tightened into a line, and Roark mentally cursed his rough words. Even when he tried to be reasonable, still he sounded like a warrior, not a courtier. Well, she needed plain speaking, if only she’d recognize the rightness of what he said. Roark’s words had Alyss rebelling at any attempted coercion as usual, but he was likely right. Her displays of independence, her boasts of driving away the Windom army and its lord had been that, boasts. If Chauvere just had more fighters, she could manage. None was coming.
She may be about to bend her stubbornness at bit. See next week on Lane McFarland’s blog:

Gabriel had stood beside her, hearing the callous words, as he
approached. His brother was a cad. But when Eve lifted her tear
ringed eyes to him, Gabriel felt his stomach drop. All he wanted to do
was go into the room and bash his brother in the face.
Instead, he hooked an arm around her shoulders and guided
her away, down the hall, away from the Great Hall, away from the
room with his brother.
He felt a hitch in her breathing as they walked and squeezed
her tight. “Do not waste your tears on such hateful words,” he
whispered. “You are far from repulsive.”

Beside Constance, Robert grinned. “What else is a younger son to do? Other than work toward knighthood, as William and I did.”
A long-buried ache resurfaced and tugged at Hugh’s heart. He dismissed it and looked to their mother.
She nodded. “Thankfully, knighthood suits you both, though it has given my nerves a beating on several occasions.”
