Bits 'n Bobs Author Blog
Welcome to week #4 in our Medieval Monday blog hop! Today I'm sharing my snippet with Nicole Locke on her blog here.
Let a bit of Christmas cheer chase those end-of-August blues with a snippet from Nicole Locke's book, Her Christmas Knight.

Laughter. High-pitched and suddenly snuffed out.
Where had it come from? It had burst out and disappeared too quickly for her to tell. Was it the other seal seekers or someone hiding in the shadows?
She pushed away from the wall and walked to the left. She might be going in circles, but she had to move. The riddle had hinted at additional seals. The others might be ahead of her.
Not daring to run any more, she quickened her steps. If the other seekers were close and she slipped and the seal fell she would never find it again. But she couldn’t be too cautious. If she was quick enough she’d have the prize—she’d be out of the dark.
Another step and another—until the floor dropped.
A knight to protect her—this Yuletide
By order of the English king, Alice of Swaffham searches London nobility for the traitor dealing information to the Scots. Little does she know that the mysterious spy she seeks is the man she once loved and thought she'd lost forever…
If Hugh of Shoebury felt unworthy of Alice before, as the Half-Thistle spy he can never claim her heart. Now he must fight to keep not only his dark secrets--and Alice—safe from a vengeful king…but also his burning longing for her at bay!
Next Monday, Nicole will be at Ruth A. Casie’s blog. http://ruthacasie.blogspot.co.uk
