Welcome to Medieval Monday! We're on week seven of our "Celebrations" theme. My guest author today is my good friend, Sherry Ewing. She's sharing a snippet from her medieval romance, To Love A Scottish Laird: De Wolfe Back Connected World.
And if you're following along with mine, hop on over to Sherry's blog here.
Snippet from To Love A Scottish Laird
They did not go far, only to an out-of-the-way alcove with a shuttered window. She unfastened the latch and flung open the wood, breathing in the ocean breeze as though to calm her frayed nerves.
Douglas shrugged. “I doubt I had any more say in the matter than ye did, Catherine,” he declared, dropping all formality between them. “What is there about marrying me that is not tae yer liking?”
“You knew about this all along!” Her accusatory tone had Douglas throwing up his arms in his own defense.
Backcover blurb from To Love A Scottish Laird
Sometimes you really can fall in love at first sight…
Lady Catherine de Wolfe knows she must find a husband before her brother chooses one for her, but none of the knights and lords she knows have caught her eye. A tournament to celebrate the wedding of the Duke of Normandy might be her answer. She does not expect to fall for a man after just one touch.
Laird Douglas MacLaren of Berwyck is invited to the tournament by the Duke of Normandy. He goes to ensure Berwyck’s safety once Henry takes the throne. He does not expect to become entranced by a woman who bumps into him.
Before they can express their feelings, the Duke orders them wed to strengthen ties between his English supporters and the borderland, and then separates them by commanding Douglas’s escort to his home.
Yet, nothing is ever quite that simple. Not everyone is happy with the union of this English lady and a Scottish laird. From the shores of France, to Berwyck Castle on the border between their countries, Douglas and Catherine must find their way to protect their newfound love.
