is our theme for this round of Medieval Monday!
Join us, our heroes and heroines and as we see that crucial first encounter with a couple meant to be together.
This week’s excerpt is from
“Do not be afraid, girl. I will not hurt you. As long as you do what you are told, everything will be fine.”
“And if I do not?”
After escaping the brutal tyrant who holds her under his boot, Leda’s newfound hope is shattered to discover her safe-haven to be nothing more than a den of brutal Norsemen, intent on conquering all of Francia and claiming its riches for their own. When she is offered as a bed slave to the fiercest Viking of them all, she despairs to realize freedom comes at a price.
Brondulf Adilson has struck terror into his enemies for as long as he can remember, to include the women who share his bed. Shunned for his frightful appearance, he doesn’t expect compliance from his new thrall and is resigned to forcing her to his will.
But the beauty he finds himself saddle with turns out to be anything but meek and compliant.
