Brrr! It’s been a cold week chez Hobbes. Luckily Lane McFarland is here to warm things up for us with an excerpt from A King’s Enemies
Hildred would be shocked at the opinion Katherine held toward the richly dressed men preening in front of her. There was no denying the depraved beasts were all alike. As part of the royal council, they no doubt felt entitled to take what they wanted, when they wanted, with little to no regard for whom they hurt. She abhorred their disgusting arrogance.

Tormented by King Edward’s brutality against Scottish sympathizers, Drake Fletcher vows revenge, but only a madman single-handedly attacks the Crown. Instead, he enters the royal court as a spy to aid Robert the Bruce’s rise to power and place a formidable leader on Scotland’s throne.
Scottish lass Katherine Mackenzie Armstrong targets three of King Edward’s officers who brutally raped and murdered her mother. Disguised as one of Queen Margaret’s attendants, she sets a course to destroy the men.
The acts of treason both Drake and Katherine commit are punishable by death in The Tower of London but their determination pushes dangerous limits. Considered enemies, they use each other to gain vital information. Neither expect their overwhelming attraction to one another, the staggering emotions stirred. But the closer they become, the more they jeopardize their pledges of vengeance.
Will the weight of retaliation crush them, see them beheaded? Or will Katherine and Drake form an alliance and learn to live and love again?
