Medieval Monday ~ Seduction at the Christmas Court ~ “A Credible Catch Dog”

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?


“But what happened?” Alyse bent to inspect the gash. It ran mayhap four or five inches along the fleshy part of the calf, with slight bleeding. The leg bone seemed not to be broken, so Guy would likely recover. Still, a dressing would be best to make sure it did not fester.

“I was about to kill a boar when Valere crashed through the brush. The boar took one look at him and charged.” His chuckle was echoed by the man on the floor. “He makes a credible catch dog, this one. When the beast went for Sir Guy, I was able to stab it in the neck. It fell onto Sir Guy as it died and ripped his leg as it did.”

“You must return this favor on the next hunt, Seigneur Longford.” Guy smiled and winked at Pippa. “’Tis only fair.”
