Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors!
For the Sundays in June for WWW, I’ve decided to share snippets from each of my back listed books. This week is Betrothal, the first novella in my medieval serial novel, Time Enough to Love.
In this scene, just after their betrothal is announced, Sir Geoffrey is supposed to be escorting Lady Alyse back to her table. However, he instead parades her around the Great Hall, showing off his bride to be. Alyse, however, is less than thrilled at his attention.
Oh, Father, what have you done to me?
As they continued down the long side of the Hall, Geoffrey leaned over to ask, “Why so quiet, my lady? Are you in awe of me or merely stunned by the good fortune of our betrothal?”
Outraged by the conceited fool, Alyse opened her mouth to explain exactly how unimpressed she was, both with him and her so-called good fortune, but instead met eyes of darkest sapphire flickering with merriment at her indignation.
So the oaf has wits.
Hope you enjoyed this little snippet of Betrothal. If you want to read more, it’s available on Amazon right now on sale for only .99!
They are betrothed by law but can he make it an affair of the heart?
Lady Alyse de Courcy has fallen in love with Lord Braeton, a nobleman in King Edward III’s court and a man to whom she has barely spoken. Fate, however, has decreed her betrothal to his best friend, Sir Geoffrey Longford—a handsome and imposing knight, yet hardly the man she wants to wed.
When Sir Geoffrey is bound in betrothal by his father, he could not have expected the beautiful stranger to win his heart the moment they meet. Nevertheless, the fascinating Lady Alyse has done exactly that, and his feelings for her only grow as he learns more of her gentle yet spirited nature. But Alyse’s infatuation with his friend casts doubt on whether she can ever return his regard and their wedding day is fast approaching…
Will he have time enough to win her love?
And don’t forget, Beleaguered releases in July!
