I'm so pleased to welcome the talented Sherry Ewing to this penultimate post of Medieval Monday's Family Theme. Sherry brings one of her favorite time travel hisoricals  TO FOLLOW MY HEART, book three of The Knights of Berwyck, A Quest Through Time series.

Next week the last posting will be on the individual authors' own blogs. So be sure to check out how these exciting excerpts end.

Fletcher watched the woman at his side as she daintily picked at her food on her side of the trencher they shared. That his side was empty, as he reached for another helping of venison, said much for his appetite this eve.

“’Tis not to your liking, my lady?” he asked her whilst holding out his chalice. A serf quickly came up behind him and refilled it with red wine. He watched her hesitation and could somewhat understand her plight. “You are amongst friends here, Lady Jenna. Please, speak your mind.”

“No... I mean... yes, the food is fine. I don’t suppose there are... vegetables?”

Be sure to leave a comment for Sherry below for a chance to win an eCopy of To Follow My Heart, The Knights of Berwyck, A Quest Through Time (Book 3). A winner will be randomly selected and announced on Medieval Monday, December 31st.

You will find Barb's installment today over at Sherry's blog.

Love is a leap. Sometimes you need to jump…

After a gut wrenching break up with her fiancé, Jenna Sinclair heads to the coast to do a little soul searching. To say everything is subject to change is putting it mildly. Her world is not only turned upside down, but pretty much torn asunder when she is pulled through a time gate on the beach beneath the Cliff House and transported more than eight hundred years into the past.

Fletcher Monroe, captain of the garrison knights at Berwyck Castle, has wasted too much time pining for a woman who will never be his. When he finally decides to move on with his life and focus on his duties, he is suddenly confronted with a woman who magically appears at his feet. This could either be the best thing that has ever happened to him or another cursed event in a string of many. He soon finds he is wildly attracted to her, but she’s scared to death of him ─ not a very encouraging beginning.

From the shores of California to twelfth century England and back again, Jenna and Fletcher must find a way to reconcile their two different worlds before Time forever tears them apart.

Welcome Judith Sterling and FLIGHT OF THE RAVEN to Medieval Monday

I'm so lucky today to welcome Judith Sterling to Medieval Monday. Not only is she a blog sister here--she's a fellow Rose from the Wild Rose Press. You'll love the look at her exciting FLIGHT OF THE RAVEN. Lady Emma and Sir William can't help but win your heart.
BY THE WAY: Only two more weeks of Family Theme on Medieval Monday. If you're following along and commenting on the authors' excerpts, you'll be in the drawing for that author's book--or one that author has designated. So don't miss out on the chance of your very own Christmas gift of a new book.
“That’s why you’re tramping about the cold battlements, instead of enjoying your warm bed.”
William turned his back and stared at the storm clouds that swirled ever closer.  “I know that.”
Robert’s sigh mingled with the wind’s.  “If you relish your prison so much, why should you object to my mentioning it?”
Make sure to comment below for a chance to win a digital copy of Flight of the Raven (or if you already own a copy, your choice of another of Judith’s books).  A winner will be randomly chosen and announced on December 31.
Follow along next Monday on Cathy MacRae’s blog:
And you can find Barb's installment from SILVERHAWK at Judith's blog:

How eager would the bridegroom be if he knew he could never bed the bride?
Lady Emma of Ravenwood Keep is prepared to give Sir William l’Orage land, wealth, and her hand in marriage.  But her virginity?  Not unless he loves her.  The curse that claimed her mother is clear:  unless a Ravenwood heir is conceived in love, the mother will die in childbirth.  Emma is determined to dodge the curse.  Then William arrives,brandishing raw sensuality which dares her to explore her own.
William the Storm isn’t a man to be gainsaid.  He’ll give her protection, loyalty, and as much tenderness as he can muster.  But malignant memories quell the mere thought of love.  To him, the curse is codswallop.  He plans a seduction to breach Emma’s fears and raze her objections.  What follows is a test of wills and an affirmation of the power of love.

Ruth A. Casie Visits Medieval Monday With THE GUARDIAN'S WITCH

 Today it's my pleasure to welcome the talented Ruth A. Casie to Medieval Monday. Ruth continues our Family Theme with an excerpt from The Guardian’s Witch –Book 1 of the Stelton Legacy. 
To follow my excerpt from SILVERHAWK, please visit Ruth's blog. And don't forget to leave a comment for a chance at a book giveaway of your choice.

“Mitchell’s interfering and undermining the king’s strategy in Scotland. That is treason,” stated Cameron.
“If we free his prisoners and bring them back to Glen Kirk, the king will attest he hasn’t been negotiating a ransom. We can expose Mitchell and his plan,” offered Alex.
“Alex, if Mitchell marches on Scotland with anything that resembles an army he will surely start a war. He may think he can saunter in and take our throne. No matter his secret weapon. That will never happen.” said Jamie.
“Secret weapon? Does he have a secret weapon?” asked Cameron.
“No. He thinks he needs Glen Kirk and Lisbeth to take the throne,” said Jamie.
“Jamie, tell me about Lisbeth, her sister, her parents. There must be something to give us some clue why Mitchell thinks he needs the castle and Lisbeth,” said Alex.

The excerpt continues! Next week I’ll be here: Cathy MacRae
You can catch last week’s excerpt here: Ashley York
Don’t forget,commenters each week will be entered into a drawing for a free digital copy of THE GUARDIAN’S WITCH.

Will he come in time or must she trust in her magic and risk exposure as a witch to save them both?
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.
