Please join me in welcoming Barbara Bettis to the Medieval Monday blog today. You'll find my excerpt from The Highlander's Welsh Bride on her blog here: http://barbarabettis.blogspot.com/
Barbara brings an excerpt from her book For This Knight Only of her Knights of Destiny series.
In today's excerpt, Sir Roark is embroiled in more than his lady's beguiling eyes. What evidence has been left behind? And whose life is on the line?
“Nothing.” Paxton hesitated. He dreaded to relate this part, but he didn’t dare omit it. “Two of his knights were before me when I came upon the body. One held something. It may have come from Sir Martin.”
“And this something was. . .?”
“A leather packet? I couldn’t see clearly. I hid until they left.”

He’ll do anything for land, even marry her; she’ll do anything for her people, except marry him.
If only either had a choice. It’s a marriage only love can save.
Sir Roark will do anything to gain land, even beguile an unwilling lady into marriage. He knows
she’s much better off with a man to take control of her besieged castle, to say nothing of her
desirable person. But it isn’t long before he discovers that, although her eyes sparkle like
sunlight on sea waves, her stubbornness alone could have defeated Saladin.
Lady Alyss is determined to hold her family’s castle, protect her people, and preserve her
freedom— until her brother’s dying wish binds her to a stranger. Still, she’ll allow no rugged,
over-confident, appealing knight to usurp her authority, even if she must wed him. Especially
since he thinks a lady’s duties begin and end with directing servants. Alyss has a few surprises
for her new all-too-tempting lord.
But when a common enemy threatens everything, Roark and Alyss face a startling revelation.
Without love, neither land nor freedom matters.
