Sweet Saturday: 04/13/13 Betrothal ~ “A Tale From the Round Table”

Welcome back to Sweet Saturday Sample!  All excerpts here are rated PG-13 or milder.

I’m continuing with a sample from my medieval WIP, Time Enough to Love:  Book 1 ~ Betrothal.



Disclaimer:  This work is still going through the editing process, so please forgive any flaws.

This series is set in England and France in 1348.  Part 1, Betrothal, takes place at the court of King Edward III.

This excerpt begins where last Saturday’s left off. You can read that post here. Geoffrey has confronted Thomas about the trouble he has caused between him and Lady Alyse.

A Tale from the  Round Table

A Tale from the
Round Table

Thomas’s mouth twisted into a sneer. “Why does this matter so much to you, Geoffrey? The girl must wed you. What does it matter whether she comes willing or not to your bed? You are acting the lovesick fool!” He managed to wrest his tunic away and put some distance between them.

“Better a lovesick fool than a man incapable of feeling.”

“By God, Geoffrey…”

“Peace, Thomas.” Geoffrey put out a dismissive hand. “My regard for Lady Alyse is none of your concern. But the grief and mistrust I have brought down on my own head are, for you certainly had a hand in that.”

After ten years of friendship, how had they come to this? An unwilling chuckle erupted from his lips, causing Thomas to glance at him suspiciously. “Two friends at odds over a woman,” he offered ruefully. “We sound like a tale from the Round Table.”

I hope you enjoyed this latest sample from  Betrothal.   Join me tomorrow on Weekend Writing Warriors for the conclusion to my excerpts from Betrothal.  The boys put their heads together in a plan. 🙂
