Welcome to a lovely Medieval Monday with Sherry Ewing. I love this snippet. Now I have to go back to read the entire excerpt again. And there's more next week! It's getting close to the end now, my friends. Be sure to leave comments each week to be put in the running for #freestuff! Cheers :)
“Can I be honest with you?” Jenna whispered, and she dared to lean a little closer, feeling comfortable with him for the first time since they’d met. Because he patiently sat there waiting for her to continue while the food began to cool, she pushed on. “I haven’t a clue what most of this is in front of me, and it’s not like I saw it packaged in a grocery store to determine what kind of meat it was before I bought it.”
“Grocery store?” he inquired with a quizzical brow.
Jenna rushed on without answering him. “I’m feeling very overwhelmed at the moment. I’m generally not a picky eater, but I don’t know what this stuff is.”
Fletcher at last smiled at her. It wasn’t just a sly grin but a full blown smile showing even, white teeth. Once again, she lost her nerve to speak her mind, or any other words that might possibly spew from her lips.
“I see. Mayhap, we will begin with a few morsels of the food stuff that I myself like. Will that suffice for a beginning between us?” he said softly.
Whether he meant the food or something more of a personal nature, Jenna could not say. So instead of trying to sort out anything of what was going on around her, she smiled back at him. Nodding happily for the first time since her ordeal began, she relaxed to enjoy this wild and crazy adventure she was sure was only a dream. She knew, in no uncertain terms, it would be only a matter of time before she woke up.
Be sure to leave a comment for Sherry below for a chance to win an eCopy of To Follow My Heart, The Knights of Berwyck, A Quest Through Time (Book 3). A winner will be randomly selected and announced on Medieval Monday, December 31st.

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