Welcome to the start of Medieval Monday! Our theme for the next thirteen weeks is "First Encounter" between the hero and heroine. We are beginning and ending with our own snippets, and I'll be sharing mine from A Highland Moon Enchantment. In addition, I will be giving away a signed print copy of this book (and swag) to one random person who follows along with my snippets. Enjoy!
A prickling of unease slithered within Desmond.
When Alastair held his hand up in warning, Desmond swiftly placed a hand on his sword. Bringing his horse alongside the other animal, he waited. The Dragon Knight could detect more with his Fae senses. He watched Alastair pull forth his axe from the side of his horse and place it across his knees.
Lowering his head slightly, Alastair muttered, “We are being watched.”
“I am going to dismount.”
Desmond arched a brow skeptically. “Ye deem it wise?”
Follow along next week on Barbara’s blog http://barbarabettis.blogspot.com/ and leave a comment for a chance to win a signed print copy of A Highland Moon Enchantment.
Blurb from A Highland Moon Enchantment ~
"You first met this warrior in Dragon Knight’s Axe, Order of the Dragon Knights, Book 3"
Irish warrior, Desmond O’Quinlan has never surrendered his heart to any woman. He has no wish to have his soul tortured by love. Yet, the moment he locks gazes with Ailsa, his fate is destined for an adventure he never fathomed. He may have battled alongside a Dragon Knight, but his greatest challenge will come from within his own heart.
Ailsa MacDuff, a warrior among her clan, has no desire to have a man chain her to a life of obedience. However, that is before she meets Desmond. The temptation to allow this warrior inside her heart is a risk she dares to take, but one that could lead to a future of emptiness and sorrow.
When betrayal looms from within, the battleground of love is no match for these two warriors. Can the power of a Highland full moon be strong enough to unite or destroy them?
