Welcome to week eight of Medieval Monday's Villain theme post hop where authors present a portion of a longer excerpt from one of their books. Today, I'm pleased to welcome the talented Sherrie Ewing, who is sharing a section of her exciting tale, A Knight to Call My Own.
If you would care to refresh your memory on what happened last week, you'll find excerpt 7 at
