Family Theme Wraps Up Today on Medieval Monday With Book Giveaway

Merry Christmas to everyone! Today is our last excerpt installment of the Family Theme of Medieval Monday. And here is the end of my excerpt from SILVERHAWK.

[Barring a miracle or a war—could a war be a miracle?—she would wed this man old enough to
be her father.] Yet that life would be kinder than any other Garley connived. She must reconcile
to her fate. It was, after all, what she’d prayed God to send. A home, a husband, a family.

Her vision misted at the memory of the dark-haired mercenary, and she squeezed shut her eyes.

Reality held no room for childish dreams.

Please leave a comment for the chance to win a copy of SILVERHAWK. The winner, drawn from the names of those who commented on all my excerpts posted at all eight blogs, will be
announced next Monday right here on my blog.

Each of the eight Medieval Monday authors is offering the same give-away for one of their books, so be sure to comment on their blogs.

If you would like to read my last week’s installment, check out Sherry Ewing’s blog:

He’s everything a proper lady should never want; she’s everything a bastard mercenary can
never have.

Sir Giles has come to England to kill his father, who seduced and betrayed his mother. First,
however, he’ll seek sweet revenge—kidnap the old lord’s new betrothed. But when Giles
uncovers a plot against King Richard, he faces a dilemma: take the lady or track the traitors.
What’s a good mercenary to do? Both, of course.

Lady Emelin has had enough. Abandoned in a convent by her brother, she finally has a chance
for home and family. Yet now she’s been abducted. Her kidnapper may be the image of her
dream knight, but she won’t allow him to spoil this betrothal. Her only solution: escape
Rescuing the intrepid lady—while hunting traitors—is a challenge Giles couldn’t anticipate. But
the greatest challenge to Giles and Emelin is the fire blazing between them.

Sherry Ewing's TO FOLLOW MY HEART on Medieval Monday

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.
