Welcome to Medieval Monday and week 10 of our ongoing "Villain" theme. Joining me in the Tavern is the talented, Jenna Jaxon! She's sharing a snippet from her story, Beleaguered. Enjoy!
Excerpt from Beleaguered ~
Guy drew his sword. “Seigneur, it is my most earnest desire.”
Alyse stepped out from behind Geoffrey. “I do not care, Guy, what law you or my father care to claim.”
“Alyse, get back.” He tried to push her behind him and got an elbow in his ribs.
“I tell you both I will marry no man but Geoffrey Longford. And if he dies, I will die with him.” Guy laughed, and Alyse stamped her foot. “I will do it, I swear my oath, I will.”
Next week I’m at Ashley York’s blog. http://www.ashleyyorkauthor.com
