Welcome back for another exciting snippet from one of our medieval authors. It's #medmonspring20! Today I have Jenna Jaxon with her medieval love story Time Enough to Love . In case you missed what came before this exciting snippet, check out her blog. Enjoy!
Alyse snapped awake, sleep fled and from nowhere his words from long ago rose to taunt her. Truthfulness could be a two-edged sword in marriage if wielded with too much vigor. But the words were already out; she could not call them back. She took a deep breath. “Thomas and I…dallied thus under the stars once.”
Geoffrey sat up, looming over her. “When was this? On the road to Portsmouth?” The flickering red and gold firelight brought out the deeply etched lines in his face. His dark eyes glittered coldly.
For the next part of the excerpt, follow me over to Ruth A. Casie’s blog next week.
When Lady Alyse de Courcy is betrothed to Sir Geoffrey Longford, she has no choice but to make the best of a bad bargain. The hulking knight is far from her ideal man, and although he does possess some wit and charm, he is no match for the sinfully sensual man she secretly admires, Thomas, Earl of Braeton, her betrothed’s best friend.
From the first, Sir Geoffrey finds himself smitten by Lady Alyse, and, despite her infatuation with his friend, vows to win her love. When Geoffrey puts his mind to wooing Alyse, he is delighted to find her succumbing to his seduction. But when cruel circumstances separate them, Geoffrey must watch helplessly as Thomas steps in to protect Alyse—and falls in love with her himself.
As the three courtiers accompany Princess Joanna to her wedding in Spain, they run headlong into the Black Plague. With her world plunged into chaos, Alyse struggles with her feelings for both the men she loves. But which love will survive?
