Tagline: The worst betrayals come from within.

Blurb:

After a night of passion with her betrothed, Sir Geoffrey Longford, Lady Alyse de Courcy is eagerly looking forward to her wedding. But when Geoffrey is forced to marry another, a heartbroken and possibly pregnant Alyse finds herself in her own private hell. She must either gamble with her reputation or marry someone she does not love.

A reputed connoisseur of women, Thomas, Lord Braeton, has dallied with many ladies of King Edward’s court, although he has favored none. However, as Geoffrey’s best friend, Thomas has sworn to serve and protect Alyse, an oath now sorely tested when he agrees to marry her—in name only—to guard her reputation. Yet, as they grow closer, and Thomas discovers Alyse’s sweet but spirited nature, he comes to desire a marriage in truth. 

Can he overcome her memory of Geoffrey, or is Thomas doomed to burn with passion for a woman he can never possess?

EXCERPT:

She closed her eyes, willing herself to submit to this bombardment of her senses. Best to feel rather than think for thinking could do naught but lead to disaster.

When Thomas reached her shoulder, he lifted his head to speak gently in her ear, his voice low and alluring. “Sweet Alyse, shall we seal our betrothal with a kiss?”

She squeezed her eyes shut and gave a bare nod. The tender caresses and his beguiling tone were attentions she could cope with. A kiss, however…

MEDIEVAL MONDAY: CAN LOVE CROSS TIME? FIND THE ANSWER IN JUDITH STERLING’S RETURN OF THE RAVEN

I am so happy to welcome my good friend and fellow Rose author Judith Sterling for today’s Medieval Monday First Kiss excerpt. And with her, she bring a snippet of her latest novel, Return of the Raven, the fifth book in her popular the Novels of Ravenwood Series.

You can find the next installment of my The Lady of the Forest on Judith’s blog https://judithmarshallauthor.com/blog/

Blurb:

True love is eternal.

Margaret, Lady Ravenwood, is trapped in a loveless marriage and firmly entrenched in the medieval world. Along comes Griffin Nightshade, a historian from the future whose soul resonates with hers. He persuades her to return with him to the 1950s, but heeding her heart means courting danger from a curse that could spell her doom.

Haunted by his parents’ sudden deaths, Griffin knows all too well the pain born of love lost. He guards his emotions, but Margaret delves deep and goes straight to the soul. She’s hard to resist…and harder to set free.

The heart’s desire and history’s demands don’t always agree. Yet true love is eternal.

EXCERPT:

Her lips were smooth and full. Inviting. He slid the tip of his tongue between them, seeking entrance. Without hesitation, she opened to him, and he began a rhythmic exploration of her mouth. It was sweet, yielding. Sheer heaven to kiss.

Her hands glided up to his neck as she leaned fully into him. The stiffest part of him leapt at the contact, and he deepened the kiss. Her long, silken hair tickled his fingers. Her sweater was soft against his palms, but when he slid his hands beneath it, her skin was softer still and hot to the touch.

BLURB:

To Follow My Heart The Knights of Berwyck, A Quest Through Time (Book 3)

Tagline: Love is a leap. Sometimes you need to jump…

Blurb:

After a gut wrenching break up with her fiancé, Jenna Sinclair heads to the coast to do a little soul searching. To say everything is subject to change is putting it mildly. Her world is not only turned upside down, but pretty much torn asunder when she is pulled through a time gate on the beach beneath the Cliff House and transported more than eight hundred years into the past.

Fletcher Monroe, captain of the garrison knights at Berwyck Castle, has wasted too much time pining for a woman who will never be his. When he finally decides to move on with his life and focus on his duties, he is suddenly confronted with a woman who magically appears at his feet. This could either be the best thing that has ever happened to him or another cursed event in a string of many.  He soon finds he is wildly attracted to her, but she’s scared to death of him – not a very encouraging beginning.

From the shores of California to twelfth century England and back again, Jenna and Fletcher must find a way to reconcile their two different worlds before Time forever tears them apart.

EXCERPT:

Her arms tightened around his own waist in a sign she was more frightened than he thought.

“I’m so s-scared, Fletcher,” she stammered, confirming his own fears.

He lifted her chin between his fingers to fully gaze into the green of her eyes.
