Welcome to Medieval Mondays! Our theme for this first round is the hero and heroine’s first meet.
This week I’m hosting my great friend, Barbara Bettis and her medieval romance
The Lady of the Forest
She curled in her lips to cushion her teeth and gripped the knife between them. Breath by
shallow, silent breath, she eased into a crouch. Balanced on her toes. Blanked her mind. And waited. He stopped. Right beneath her perch.
Kate slid the knife into her hand and jumped.

Lord Henry of Chauvere reined in his mount beneath a huge oak and hunched his shoulders in disgust. Sometime during the day, the murdering bastard’s trail had disappeared.

And leave a comment for a book drawing at the end of the tour. To review last week’s
Jenna here. If you’re following my snippets too, I’m on Barbara Bettis‘s blog today.
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.
Next week I’ll be hosting Ashley York on my blog! Please come back for a snippet from her exciting book, The Curse of the Healer.
