Welcome to the first in a brand new Medieval Monday blog hop.
Today I’m delighted to welcome Barbara Bettis to the blog with an excerpt from
SILVERHAWK — Knights of Destiny
You can find my excerpt from A Wager for the Widow on Barbara’s blog
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.
(After not setting her eyes on her brother for years after he consigned her to a convent, Emelin at last comes face-to-face with Garley when he arrives for her wedding to the man he’s sold her to.)
Garley’s eyes blazed hatred when they landed on her and sent her spiraling back to a childhood fear. Against her will, the old uncertainty seared her new confidence. Would he force her to Compton if she didn’t satisfy Lord Osbert? Sell her to another rich lord? What would such a man be like? Lord Osbert, at least, was a known entity. And the child, Margaret. Emelin couldn’t leave her alone. Who knew what mischief she would get up to, just to gain attention?
