Welcome back to another Medieval Monday. Today I’m delighted to welcome fellow Mills and Boon author Jenni Fletcher. She’s sharing an excerpt from Besieged and Betrothed.
‘If I surrender, do you promise that my men won’t be harmed?’
‘They won’t even be prisoners. They can join Sir Guian’s men or they can leave. Whichever they choose.’
‘All right. As long as you understand that every decision I’ve made since the battle has been mine and mine alone. I take full responsibility for everything. Any punishment should come to me.’
He felt vaguely unsettled again. What did that mean? The solemn way that she said it suggested there was something else, something he didn’t know about, that she took responsibility for.
‘I’m not here to punish anybody, Lady Juliana. I told you, the Empress only wants the bridge.’
Ruthless warrior Lothar the Frank has laid siege to Castle Haword, but there’s a fiery redhead in his way—and she’s not backing down!
More tomboy than trembling maiden, Lady Juliana Danville would rather die than lose the castle. When she’s caught on opposite sides of a war, a marriage bargain is brokered to bring peace. But is blissful married life possible when Juliana has a dangerous secret hidden within the castle walls?
