This time around on Medieval Monday our theme is simply Author’s choice. Each author get to choose their own theme–celebration, food, betrayal–everything is on the table.
I have chosen a celebration–a wedding and more particularly a wedding night–for my snippet. My excerpt is from Betrayal and can be found this week at Mary‘s blog if you’d like to keep up with my story.
This week on my blog, is an excerpt from
A Highland Moon Enchantment
Silence descended inside the place, and Angus stood. As the oldest Dragon Knight and Laird of
Urquhart, it was his duty to welcome in the druids.
He spread his arms wide. “’Tis an honor to greet the druids who will give their blessing on this feast of light.” While glancing around the room, his voice rang loud. “Urquhart has been blessed with abundance this year—in family, health, and crops. May we ask the Gods and Goddesses to continue to favor us with their love and protection.” Turning his attention back toward the druids, Cathal and Tam, he added, “Greetings, wise ones. Ye are most welcome.”
“’Tis an honor to be among the Dragon Knights and their friends and families,” proclaimed Cathal. He motioned for Tam to move ahead of him.

You first meet this warrior in Dragon Knight’s Axe, Order of the Dragon Knights, Book 3
Irish warrior, Desmond O’Quinlan has never surrendered his heart to any woman. He has no wish to have his soul tortured by love. Yet, the moment he locks gazes with Ailsa, his fate is destined for an adventure he never fathomed. He may have battled alongside a Dragon Knight, but his greatest challenge will come from within his own heart.
Ailsa MacDuff, a warrior among her clan, has no desire to have a man chain her to a life of obedience. However, that is before she meets Desmond. The temptation to allow this warrior inside her heart is a risk she dares to take, but one that could lead to a future of emptiness and sorrow.
When betrayal looms from within, the battleground of love is no match for these two warriors. Can the power of a Highland full moon be strong enough to unite or destroy them?
