Welcome to Medieval Mondays! Our theme for this year’s first round is the hero and heroine’s first meet.
This week I’m hosting the dashing Elisabeth Hobbes and her medieval romance
Beguiled by the Forbidden Knight
The girl made a lunge at him as he neared her, fishing hook outstretched. He had
expected her to retreat to the far bank, not attack. Surprised at her ferocity, Gui flung
himself to one side. The hook gouged the length of his left forearm, drawing blood and
leaving a deep scratch. He roared in pain and whipped his arm away viciously.
His toe bashed a half-buried rock and he lurched under the water. Instinctively, he
reached out to steady himself and grasped hold of the nearest object. It turned out to be
the girl’s outstretched arm. His fingers closed around her wrist as he went back and then
she too was slipping below the surface.
It doesn’t look good for Gui. Find out what happens next Monday on Rue Allyn’s
Elisabeth is offering one reader chance to win an ebook copy of her brand new Scottish
romance, A Runaway Bride for the Highlander which comes out in May. To be in with a
chance all you have to do is leave a comment on each excerpt.
Jenna here. If you’re following my snippets too, I’m on Elisabeth Hobbes’s blog today.
He’s her enemy…
…and she must not fall for him!
When her mistress is claimed as an enemy knight’s betrothed, handmaiden Aelfhild
knows it would be too dangerous for her lady; she must go in her place. But there’s more
to the scarred knight than she first thought—she isn’t expecting to fall for him! As the
line between friend and enemy blurs, Aelfhild realizes she might be protecting her
mistress, but not her heart…
Next week I’ll be hosting Bambi Lynn on my blog! Please come back for a snippet from her book, The Vikings.
