Medieval Monday: First Encounter! ~ Jenna Jaxon’s Time Enough to Love



First Meet!

 I’m back this year for Medieval Mondays and our theme for this round is the hero and heroine’s first meet! This is the beginning of the posts where you’ll see the beginning scene of the meeting of Lady Alyse de Courcy and Sir Geoffrey Longford, at the court of King Edward, in the year of Our Lord, 1348.

This week, the first excerpt from

Jenna Jaxon’s

Time Enough to Love



“Lady Alyse de Courcy!” King Edward called out again, bringing Alyse’s head up like a startled deer. “Present yourself before the court.”

Alyse shot off her seat. Oh, Lord! She had kept King Edward waiting.

“I beg pardon, sire.” She hurried from behind the table, too aware of all the eyes now on her.

Follow me along for the snippet number 2 on Cathy Macrae’s blog next week.



When Lady Alyse de Courcy is betrothed to Sir Geoffrey Longford, she has no choice but to make the best of a bad bargain. The hulking knight is far from her ideal man, and although he does possess some wit and charm, he is no match for the sinfully sensual man she secretly admires, Thomas, Earl of Braeton, her betrothed’s best friend.

From the first, Sir Geoffrey finds himself smitten by Lady Alyse, and, despite her infatuation with his friend, vows to win her love. When Geoffrey puts his mind to wooing Alyse, he is delighted to find her succumbing to his seduction. But when cruel circumstances separate them, Geoffrey must watch helplessly as Thomas steps in to protect Alyse—and falls in love with her himself.

As the three courtiers accompany Princess Joanna to her wedding in Spain, they run headlong into the Black Plague. With her world plunged into chaos, Alyse struggles with her feelings for both the men she loves. But which love will survive?
