Medieval Monday Welcomes Ruth A. Casie with The Guardian's Witch

 The talented Ruth A. Casie visits us for Medieval Monday today, bringing the First Encounter between Lord Alex Stelton and Lady Lisbeth Reynolds of The Guardian's Witch, Book One in The Stelton Legacy. Welcome, Ruth. Alex and Lisbeth are a wonderful couple!

 “The attack came within sight of the tower,” said Ann. “His big blade caught the last of the sun. The flash alerted the tower guard and he sent the men out. Prime, bless the beast’s heart, raised the alarm with Lord Alex’s soldiers who followed on the trail.”
Lisbeth took the linen Ann offered.
“He was dazed but awake when the men brought him in. John helped get him out of his clothes, examined every inch of him, cleaned and dressed his wounds. His lordship was troubled and restless. He kept mumbling about someone behind him. He couldn’t understand who attacked him or why.

England, 1290
Lord Alex Stelton can't resist a challenge, especially one with a prize like this: protect a castle on the Scottish border for a year, and it's his. Desperate for land of his own, he'll do anything to win the estate—even enter a proxy marriage to Lady Lisbeth Reynolds, the rumored witch who lives there.     
Feared and scorned for her second sight, Lisbeth swore she'd never marry, but she is drawn to the handsome, confident Alex. She sees great love with him but fears what he would think of her gift and her visions of a traitor in their midst.
Despite his own vow never to fall in love, Alex can't get the alluring Lisbeth out of his mind and is driven to protect her when attacks begin on the border. But as her visions of danger intensify, Lisbeth knows it is she who must protect him. Realizing they'll secure their future only by facing the threat together, she must choose between keeping her magic a secret and losing the man she loves.

Medieval Monday Brings Mary Morgan's DRAGON KNIGHT'S AXE

This second Medieval Monday in October, I'm thrilled to welcome my friend and award-winning author Mary Morgan with a glimpse of Dragon Knight's Axe, one of her popular Dragon Knight time travel series.

For a reminder of her last week's installment of this First Encounter theme, check out Cathy MacRae's blog:

Reality comes to light…

All eyes turned toward her.

She was tired of being passed back and forth, and she was going to take control of this god-awful nightmare. “I’m not going anywhere until you explain where I am.” Pointing a finger at Alastair, she demanded, “And who are you?”

The man who’d flirted with her coughed into his fist. “The elf has balls.”

“Silence!” roared Alastair. “Get ready to depart. I will not remain any longer.”

A mixture of grumbling and smirks ensued, as they climbed up the ladder into the ship. Alastair directed his gaze back to Fiona and approached her.

Fiona willed herself to show no fear as he loomed dark and powerful, and she slowly lifted her head to meet his stare. In all of her life, she had never stood her ground. Until this moment.

“What is this place?” Her voice barely rose above a whisper.

“Dunnyneill. Trading post,” he replied.

Alastair MacKay, a battled-scarred Dragon Knight flees to the sea to separate himself from his fae-given power connecting him to the land. But it is on land that he rescues a woman from a slave trader in Ireland. It is through Fiona he steps back inadvertently into a world filled with magic—taking on the role of protector and at the same time leading him on a journey to confront his greatest regret and fears. 

Research assistant, Fiona O’Quinlan loves translating ancient artifacts at Trinity College. When she falls asleep on an archeological dig, she awakens in another time. She soon discovers a Dragon Knight’s relic has been entrusted into her care. Determined to return the artifact to the Great Glen, Fiona is unprepared for the danger ahead—losing her heart and soul to Alastair “Beast” MacKay.

Will their love be strong enough to soothe the beast and heal the man? Or will Death swing its axe, leaving them lost for all eternity?
