We continue our Medieval Monday Villain them post hop, and today I welcome my friend Lane McFarland. Lane brings Excerpt Six of LINDSEY, the third book in her popular series, The Daughters of Alastair MacDougal.
If you'd like to refresh your memory with last week's excerpt, visit Laurel O'Donnell's blog:
Heart hammering, she stuffed the supplies back into her basket and followed the lumbering man down one of the passageways. The overpowering stench of feces and urine gagged her. Cells lined the dirt aisle. Battered men filled the cramped area. Their clothes were mere rags; little protection against the damp air seeping through the walls.
As she and the guard approached, an eerie silence fell over the prisoners. With widened eyes, they cringed and shuffled from the bars. Lindsey’s gaze shot across the men, taking note of the number housed in Collins’s torture chamber. She would report these horrid conditions to Hamish. The rebel leader and her brethren Scots would not stand for their fellow countrymen to suffer such savagery.

The Daughters of Alastair MacDougall Series
Set in late thirteenth century Scotland, this series tells the stories of Laird Alastair MacDougall’s four independent and oftentimes, headstrong daughters coming of age in a country fraught with war and feuds amongst rival clans. Follow his daughters as their lives become intertwined with four fierce, rebel highland warriors bent on eradicating the English soldiers from their homeland.
Who said life was fair? Certainly not Lindsey MacDougall. She rebels at a world dominated by men. Dressed in lad’s clothing, she manages her father’s stables, caring for, breeding and selling horses. Unwavering on performing her duty to the rebellion, Lindsey throws caution to the wind and secretly delivers missives behind enemy lines to the Scottish warriors.
Logan Ross uses his happy-go-lucky smile to warm the hearts of many willing lasses, but it also masks his pain—the pain of his birth. As a bastard son, he is unacceptable for any Laird’s daughter, including the spirited Lindsey MacDougall. However, she haunts his dreams. Determined to prove his worth, he throws himself into the middle of the rebellion, leading men into mortal danger.
After helping Logan escape from a brutal English dungeon, Lindsey fights her traitorous attraction to the virile highland warrior, vowing never to lose her heart to any man.
