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 Barb‘s blog if you’d like to keep up with my story.
This week on my blog, is an excerpt from
The Lady of the Forest
An ache took up residence in the hollowness of Kate’s chest. Perhaps not. I can trust Alyss. Even though they hadn’t visited in a half-dozen years, Kate felt certain her old friend would keep her secret. But perhaps Alyss wasn’t at Windom. Henry might face terrible danger in the meantime.
Deep in thought, Kate nearly missed Jamie’s words. “—not the traitor.”
“What?” She turned to the youth, who shoved the rest of a boiled egg into his mouth. It bulged in his cheek.
“I heard Sam’l tell the prisoner he saw the real traitor.”

He must pursue his enemy; she must protect her people. Can their love survive the duties that drive them apart?
When her elderly husband dies, Lady Katherine fakes her own death and disappears into the forest with others escaping the brutish new lord. Determined to protect her people, she knocks the wrong man senseless. But Lord Henry isn’t an enemy, he’s the brother of her childhood friend. Although his tender confidence tempts her, she’s bound by duty.
Henry of Chauvere has found the one lady he wants for his own, never mind she’s tied him hand and foot. When he learns the king has ordered her to wed Stonehill’s ruthless new master, he insists Kate seek haven with his sister. But she won’t desert her friends. Henry vows to solve her problem, provided he catches a traitor before the threat from Kate’s past catches her.
When a daring rescue compels Henry and Kate to join forces, their attraction grows into love. If only duty didn’t drive them apart.
