Welcome back to another Medieval Monday here at my blog. I have new books, new authors, and a new way for you to enjoy everything Medieval! Follow along with anyone-or all-of our authors, commenting each week, and your name will be entered into a drawing for a collection of e-books, one from each of these authors. How great is that?
And today I have the lovely Nicole Locke with a story from her Lovers and Legends series, Her Christmas Knight. Enjoy :)
October 1296 London
She wasn’t going to make it.
Heat prickled down her back. Her hands, clenching a seal to her chest, grew damp. Alice stopped running, pressed her back against the stone wall and let out a steadying breath.
She was going to make it. She had to. She had come too far. It was the labyrinth of passageways that was making her anxious. She didn’t know where she was going.
It was the dark…which was more heavy and cold than the stone she rested against.
How long had she been running? She should never have agreed to the game—never agreed to visiting Court in the first place.As if she’d had a choice.
Next Monday, Nicole is at Mary Morgan’s blog. http://www.marymorganauthor.com
A knight to protect her—this Yuletide
By order of the English king, Alice of Swaffham searches London nobility for the traitor dealing information to the Scots. Little does she know that the mysterious spy she seeks is the man she once loved and thought she'd lost forever…
If Hugh of Shoebury felt unworthy of Alice before, as the Half-Thistle spy he can never claim her heart. Now he must fight to keep not only his dark secrets—and Alice—safe from a vengeful king…but also his burning longing for her at bay!
