Medieval Monday Returns | TO WEAVE A HIGHLAND TAPESTRY

Welcome back to Medieval Monday and a brand new theme! Since we're fast heading into the holidays, our theme for the next 11 weeks is "Celebrations." I'm delighted to begin the first week with my upcoming release, To Weave A Highland Tapestry. Each snippet is broken down from one larger excerpt. I hope you'll celebrate with me, and the phenomenal medieval romance authors who will grace the pages of my blog during this holiday season.


Snippet from To Weave A Highland Tapestry

His kiss was urgent, demanding. Patrick thrust his tongue into her soft heat. The air swirled in a tempest of passion as the kiss deepened. No longer caring if anyone came upon them, Patrick continued to feast on her mouth.

“How many kissing boughs have our wives placed in this castle?” asked Stephen.

“In every nook, stone, and chamber. I would not be surprised to find one in the stables or lists,” replied Duncan.

Stephen laughed. “By the hounds, I do love Midwinter.”

Gwen stiffened against Patrick. Placing a finger over her mouth, he waited for the conversation to fade before relaxing his stance and stepping back. Glancing over his shoulder, he watched as the men made their way into the feasting hall. Returning his attention to Gwen, he pulled her out of the alcove.

Backcover blurb for To Weave A Highland Tapestry

Patrick MacFhearguis, hardened by battles won and lost, desires what he can never have—peace within his heart and soul. Yet, the ever-meddling Fae weave a new journey for him to conquer—a task this highlander is determined to resist.

When skilled weaver, Gwen Hywel, is commissioned to create a tapestry for the MacFhearguis clan, she embraces the assignment. While seeking out ideas, she finds herself clutching the one thread that can alter the tapestry of her life and heart.

A man conflicted by past deeds. A woman with no family of her own. Is it possible for love to unravel an ancient past, in order to claim two badly scarred hearts? Or will the light of hope be doused forever?
