Celebrations with Angels? And will they get their wings?

Happy Medieval Monday! We are on week seven of our winter series and today I have the lovely Ruth A. Casie with a snippet from The Pirate’s Redemption. This story just sounds so good.

And I am over at Ruth's blog with my seventh snippet from Daughter of the Overking. Enjoy!


"Are ye humming?" Moira asked.

Gareth glanced at her. Her heart jolted at the devilish look in his eyes.

“Has my voice offended you, milady?” He pulled his head back. “I’ve been told I have a good voice.”

“No, ye dinna offend me. I was trying ta determine which angel was singing.”

He gaped at her. Finally, he laughed so hard he had to wipe tears from his eyes.

“Angel? No one has called me that since I was a small lad.” Another chuckle escaped his lips. “If you think me an angel, it is a dark one.”

Moira couldn’t help but laugh with him.

“Angel…” he whispered. Gareth stared at her while his finger traced her lips. Then his arm snaked around her back and drew her closer. His lips brushed against hers as he spoke. “From your lips, let it be so.”

Follow along next week (January 6) for excerpt #8 here:

Please leave a comment below. Miss last week and a chance to comment? Check it out here:


After her beloved father dies, Moira MacDougall becomes chieftain of their small clan. She is

tested on every level, not only by her councilors who question her every move, but also by an exiled Englishman who raids her village under the guise of a notorious pirate, Gareth Talbot.

He wants the secret weapon Moira possesses, and will do anything to get his hands on it—including committing murder so he can give it to King Henry to prove his worthiness and be welcomed home. Moira will follow her destiny and do whatever is necessary to protect her clan.

The real Gareth Talbot is through with love. His last romance did not end well. He suffered a broken heart and doesn’t trust women.

Humiliated, Gareth goes to sea and becomes a captain for MacAlpin, the pirate king. When raids along the Scottish coast are blamed on him, he seeks revenge. Nothing less than death will do.

Moira and Gareth are on different missions but seek the same goal. Can they work together and eliminate their greatest enemy, and in the process, find the one thing they didn’t know they were searching for, true love?
