Judith Sterling on Medieval Monday With a Glimpse of SHADOW OF THE SWAN

I'm proud to welcome fellow Rose Judith Sterling to Medieval Monday today! Judith is sharing a glimpse of her delightful novel Shadow of the Swan, Book Three of her series, The Novels of Ravenwood,

Her resolve strengthened a hundredfold. “I mean what I say.”

“As do I, and you have my word. I shall never force you to consummate our marriage.”

Relief coursed through her. He was a man of his word; that much she knew. She was safe. All would be well.

He slapped his thighs. “That said, shall we to bed?”
Follow along next week at Jenni Fletcher’s blog:

Lady Constance de Bret was determined to be a nun, until shadows from the past eclipsed her present.  Marriage is the safest option, but she insists on a spiritual union, in which physical intimacy is forbidden.  Not so easy with a bridegroom who wields unparalleled charm!  But a long-buried secret could taint his affection and cloak her in shadow forever.
Back from the Crusades, Sir Robert le Donjon craves a home of his own and children to inherit it.  From the moment he meets Constance, he feels a mysterious bond between them.  When she’s threatened, he vows to protect her and agrees to the spiritual marriage, with the hope of one day persuading her to enjoy a “real” one.  She captivates him but opens old wounds and challenges everything he thought he believed.
Two souls in need of healing.  Two hearts destined to beat as one.
