Happy Medieval Monday! Thanks for stopping by. Grab a cup of coffee and settle down for a snippet from Ruth A. Casie's The Guardian's Witch, book one of The Stelton Legacy. I'm over visiting Ruth's blog. Be sure to leave comments every week for a chance to win free stuff :)
“Does he think he can simply walk into Edinburgh and the Scots will hand over their throne?” asked one of the Stelton men.
“Without a king on our throne and the Scots in disarray, he does,” said Jamie.
“Does he know about the king’s involvement with Scotland?” Bennett spoke up.
“You mean about Edward arbitrating the selection of the next rightful king? I don’t think Mitchell cares. He has been planning this intrigue for some time.” Jamie rubbed his chin.
“He’s accused you of treason,” Cameron said to Alex, “while all along he’s the criminal.”
“How so?” asked Jamie.

Will he come in time or must she trust in her magic and risk exposure as a witch to save them both?
Lord Alex Stelton can't resist a challenge, especially one with a prize like this: protect a castle on the Scottish border for a year, and it's his. Desperate for land of his own, he'll do anything to win the estate—even enter a proxy marriage to Lady Lisbeth Reynolds, the rumored witch who lives there.
Feared and scorned for her second sight, Lisbeth swore she'd never marry, but she is drawn to the handsome, confident Alex. She sees great love with him but fears what he would think of her gift and her visions of a traitor in their midst.
Despite his own vow never to fall in love, Alex can't get the alluring Lisbeth out of his mind and is driven to protect her when attacks begin on the border. But as her visions of danger intensify, Lisbeth knows it is she who must protect him. Realizing they'll secure their future only by facing the threat together, she must choose between keeping her magic a secret and losing the man she loves.
