It's Week 4 of Medieval Monday's First Encounter themed posts and I'm happy to welcome another newcomer to the group. Ceci Giltenan brings us a glimpse of HIGHLAND REDEMPTION, the first in her Duncurra Legacy series. Here's her excerpt.
And don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win an e-copy of Highland Redemption or another e-book of your choice by Ceci Giltenan at the end of the theme tour.
To catch up on last week's excerpt from Ceci, check out Mary Morgan's blog: http://www.marymorganauthor.com/.
"Oh, I agree. I can’t imagine not having a name for my horse.”
“Do you have a horse?” asked Tomas.
Her face lit up. “Yes. A black mare. I named her Mab, after the fairy queen.”
“Really?” Tomas was shocked. “I named my first pony Mab.”
“You’re teasing me.”
“Nay, I’m serious. An older girl in the clan had told me fairy stories and Mab was always in them.”
“What an odd coincidence. I’ve never heard of another horse named Mab. Even when I named her, some of my more superstitious clansmen warned me that I might be tempting the fairies to work some mischief.”
Tomas's life changed forever when at the age of seven he was adopted by Laird and Lady Maclan ending the abuse he'd suffered at Ambrose Ruthven's hand. He'd never looked back and never intended to.
But fate had other plans...
Now, nineteen years later, he runs headlong into his past. The Ruthvens are in trouble and Tomas is in a position to help them. But can he set aside his hatred for Laird Ruthven for the good of the clan into which he was born?
Fate always adds a twist...
Laird Ruthven's daughter is not what Tomas expected. Vida Ruthven is sweet, smart, and utterly irresistible.
Now, Tomas must choose between being the savior or taking the ultimate revenge.
