Welcome back to the next round of First Kiss snippets for Medieval Monday! I hope you're enjoying these little teasers and have found a new book or two you can't wait to read.
Sophia Nye joins me today with her snippet from A Highland Autumn.
You'll find my snippet from The Highlander's Pirate Bride on her blog here: https://sophianyewrites.com/blog/
Sophia's hero and heroine are in quite the conundrum. Read on and see how a murder, a mix-up, and a midnight missive make for one unforgettable Highland romance!
“What of Lady Sybilla?” she asked, her voice shaking with emotion.
God, she was right. What was he doing? It was shameful enough that he had no intention of sharing a bed with his future wife. The least he could do was keep his hands off Adelina. Aye, for Adelina’s own sake he should leave her alone. The last thing he wanted was to become too involved with a woman he cared for. And whatever his intentions were, it was painfully obvious that he did care for her.

Follow along next week on Ruth A. Casie’s blog: www.RuthACasie.blogspot.com
When a fiery, red-haired Englishwoman falls for the laird’s charming, off-limits son, their passion ignites a fire that threatens to engulf the clan.
Ronan Calder, eldest son of Clan Calder's laird, is going to stay as far away from marriage as he can get. After losing his mother and beloved sister during childbirth, Ronan knows there is no way he could ever inflict such a fate upon any woman. Things get a little complicated when he meets the enchanting new scholar and mistakes her for his future bride.
Adelina Matheson has every intention of becoming the first female scholar at Oxford, and the quick wit to prove it. The only thing she's missing is permission to attend lectures. When the masters challenge Adelina to serve as advisor to a Highland laird in exchange for entry, she is left with little choice. She agrees to the challenge - surely she can manage such a simple task to prove herself.
Except that once Adelina arrives at Calder Keep, she realizes that nothing about her task is simple. She must battle her alarming attraction to the laird's handsome son while enduring the laird’s beastly temper. The only other Englishwoman is also her competition for Ronan's affection, and the entire clan is under threat of attack at the upcoming Samhain celebration. Can Ronan and Adelina put aside their personal troubles and save Clan Calder, or will they doom the entire clan?
