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.

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.
