Welcome back to Medieval Monday where I host different snippets from some amazing medieval romance authors. Today is no different! I have Jenna Jaxon with a peak at Beleaguered. Enjoy!
Geoffrey grinned at his adversary. The fool would make the mistake of underestimating the woman he sought to marry. “She speaks the truth. She has sworn it to me, and I believe her.” He grinned at Alyse. “But you need not worry, my love.” He took in de Valere from head to foot and shrugged. “We will require a marriage bed this night, and he a coffin.”
Guy growled an oath at him and drew his weapon as well. “Shall we take this out into the Great Hall, Seigneur, that the delights of the night to come may be determined?”
When death holds sway in the world, can even the greatest love survive?
Finally in France, Alyse and Thomas’s passion for one another continues to smolder hot and deep—until one fateful encounter changes everything.
During a formal banquet, Alyse must share an intimate dance her first love. His searing touch proves Alyse’s desire for him is as strong as when they first met. Tormented by this revelation, Alyse is bitterly torn between the love of her life and her love for her husband.
Into this agonizing situation, the disaster of the Black Death rears its head. Alyse, Thomas and Geoffrey must try to save the princess from the ravening disease but at a dire cost to themselves. With her world plunged into chaos, Alyse struggles with her feelings for both of the men she loves. But which love will survive?
