Judith Sterling on Medieval Monday With a Glimpse of SHADOW OF THE SWAN

I'm proud to welcome fellow Rose Judith Sterling to Medieval Monday today! Judith is sharing a glimpse of her delightful novel Shadow of the Swan, Book Three of her series, The Novels of Ravenwood,

Her resolve strengthened a hundredfold. “I mean what I say.”

“As do I, and you have my word. I shall never force you to consummate our marriage.”

Relief coursed through her. He was a man of his word; that much she knew. She was safe. All would be well.

He slapped his thighs. “That said, shall we to bed?”
Follow along next week at Jenni Fletcher’s blog:

Lady Constance de Bret was determined to be a nun, until shadows from the past eclipsed her present.  Marriage is the safest option, but she insists on a spiritual union, in which physical intimacy is forbidden.  Not so easy with a bridegroom who wields unparalleled charm!  But a long-buried secret could taint his affection and cloak her in shadow forever.
Back from the Crusades, Sir Robert le Donjon craves a home of his own and children to inherit it.  From the moment he meets Constance, he feels a mysterious bond between them.  When she’s threatened, he vows to protect her and agrees to the spiritual marriage, with the hope of one day persuading her to enjoy a “real” one.  She captivates him but opens old wounds and challenges everything he thought he believed.
Two souls in need of healing.  Two hearts destined to beat as one.

It's my pleasure to welcome
Jenna Jaxon to The Book Corner today for Medieval Monday's Author's Choice
Excerpt blog tour. Jenna's featuring a segment from Betrayal, Book Two
in her exciting Time Enough to Love Series.

“Alyse?” he asked, pitching his voice low, hoping none but she could hear. A whimper from the
other side of the bed tugged at his heart.

“Shh, Alyse, come here; I would speak a word for your ear only.” Thomas held his breath then
released it when the mattress dipped toward him.
“Shhh, be quiet!”
Her normal voice ad sounded loudly in the darkness. The listeners outside must have heard, for their chatter increased, and the floor creaked as someone moved closer to the bed.
Thomas pulled hertoward him, positioned his mouth next to her ear. “If you do not want them to hear what we say, you must lower your voice to the barest whisper; do you understand?”
Follow along for the next part of Jenn's excerpt next week at:
The worst betrayals come from within.
After a night of passion with her betrothed, Sir Geoffrey Longford, Lady Alyse de Courcy i eagerly looking forward to her wedding. But when Geoffrey is forced to marry
another, a heartbroken and possibly pregnant Alyse finds herself in her own
private hell. She must either gamble with her reputation or marry someone she
does not love.
A reputed connoisseur of women, Thomas, Lord Braeton, has dallied with many ladies ofKing Edward’s court, although he has favored none. However, as Geoffrey’s bestfriend, Thomas has sworn to serve and protect Alyse, an oath now sorely tested when he agrees to marry her—in name only—to guard her reputation. Yet, as they grow closer, and Thomas discovers Alyse’s sweet but spirited nature, he comes to desire a marriage in truth.
Can he overcome her memory of Geoffrey, or is Thomas doomed to burn with passion for a woman he can never possess?

Medieval Monday: It's A Knight With Grace--and Laurel O'Donnell

Please join me in welcoming the talented Laurel O'Donnell and her excerpt from A Knight With Grace. You'll certainly want to see what happens next week 😊

And for a peek at my latest excerpt from The Lady of the Forest, please visit Laurel's blog at

She stood, pressing her fingers to her lips, gazing at him.
He clenched his teeth and looked away. “Grace...” That was when he noticed the blanket on the ground. He looked up at her. She had come to give him the blanket. The simple gesture warmed his heart until he remembered he had greeted her with violence, almost cutting her neck. “You should stay on your side of the camp.” 

Please join Laurel for the continuing excerpt next week at Cathy MacRae’s blog –

If you'd like to refresh your memory on what happened last week, Laurel was with Mary Morgan:


Lady Grace Willoughby defies her father’s orders to marry Sir William de Tracy and escapes with a friend. She has no intention of wedding a cursed man, a man ostracized from the church, a man who would only doom any future children they might have to the fires of Hell. She prays for a knight to rescue her.

Excommunicated and outcast for a horrible crime in his past, Sir William de Tracy searches for forgiveness. Marriage has never crossed his mind until Lord Willoughby commissions him to retrieve his fleeing daughter and honor the dying wish of his father by marrying Grace.

But things are not as they seem. And when an assassin tries to kill Grace, William must choose between his soul and the woman he has come to love. Can William and Grace overcome their past and find the redemption and love both are so desperately seeking?
