Cathy MacRae BringsTHE HIGHLANDER'S CRUSADER BRIDE to Medieval Monday

 Welcome the the talented Cathy MacRae today with a peek at her exciting book THE HIGHLANDER'S CRUSADER BRIDE.  We're almost at the halfway mark of the Family Life theme on Medieval Monday, and the excerpts are getting even more intense. 

You can find my next excerpt from SILVERHAWK on Cathy's blog:

Taken aback, Arbela schooled her face into a smooth mask. “Why do ye object to this?” 

A mulish expression clung to Bram’s face and he turned away. Picking up his wooden spoon, he shoved the remainder of his meal around on his trencher, sending small pieces over the edge and onto the table.

“Bram! Be mindful of what ye are doing.” Caelen’s rebuke sounded low but unmistakable through the din. 

Bram flung his spoon to the table and slumped back in the chair.“What has gotten into ye, lad?” Caelen scooted his chair back. Arbela lifted a hand, stalling the reprimand certain to come.

Don’t forget - Commenters each week will be entered into a drawing for a free copy of my ebook, The Highlander’s Crusader Bride!

Born in the Holy Land only a few years after the Third Crusade, half-Armenian, half-Scot Arbela MacLean is a true daughter of the desert, beautiful and untamed. Trained to be a warrior to avoid her gentle mother’s fate, Arbela has honed her skills with Turkish bow and arrow, sword and throwing darts—and dreads the day her father choses a man for her to marry.

After more than thirty years in the Holy Land, Donal MacLean, Baron of Batroun, is recalled to Scotland, the last son available to take up leadership of clan MacLean. He brings with him knights, treasure, trade—and a daughter of marriageable age.
Caelen MacKern, known as the Bull of the Highlands, is cynical about women. His first marriage formed an alliance, and he did not grieve when his spoiled, immature bride passed away. He has agreed to marry again—against his better judgement—for the men, means and coin to recover from a devastating pestilence that all but wiped out his clan.

Though more than a little resentful at finding himself forced to remarry, Caelen’s proposal to Donal MacLean’s headstrong daughter nevertheless piques her interest. Each will receive what they want most from life—the ability to live as they please without interference from a meddling spouse. But their marriage of indifference will soon change to one of passion that neither Arbela nor Caelen could have predicted.
