Medieval Monday ~ Seduction at the Christmas Court ~ In For The Kill

Good Morning! Welcome to the Fall/Winter Medieval Monday blog hop! We’re doing the hop somewhat differently this time around. There will be a link below to the Medieval Romance Lovers Facebook page that has links to all the other authors who are participating this time around. So after you read my excerpt, click the link and go have fun with our medieval romance snippets.  They can also be found via #MedMonFall2020 .

Our theme for the fall is Nature and I’ll be sharing a segment from my medieval Christmas novella Seduction at the Christmas Court. The scene begins with a boar hunt some days before Christmas in 1349. Geoffrey, Lord Longford and his wife Alyse have been summoned to the King’s Christmas court and this is the King’s favorite sport.

Available on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble.


Alyse and Geoffrey, Lord and Lady Longford, have journeyed to the glittering Christmas Court of King Edward III in the year 1349 to wait upon the king and take part in some Yuletide merriment. However, when Geoffrey is suddenly called into the king’s service again, Alyse must remain at court, attending the queen and persuading her rebellious sister to accept an unwanted betrothal. When rumors of Geoffrey’s death arise, Alyse fends off an old suitor who wants to renew their friendship. But how long will he take “No” for an answer?


 It squealed and tore up the thick carpet of   dead leaves that covered the ground with its   sharp, white tusks. The near dog, more gray   than black, circled to the boar’s left. Must be   the catch hound. He’d wait and let the dog   do its work to pin the dangerous animal to   the ground. Then he’d move in to deal the   death blow.

 The gray dog continued stalking to the left of its quarry, growling deep in its chest all the while. Geoffrey countered to the right, stepping carefully over the thick branches that littered the ground. One misstep and he could go down. The enraged animal would be on him before he could lift his dagger.
