Welcome back to the Medieval Monday Blog Hop and another exciting snippet. This week I have time-travel romance writer, Mary Morgan. She's sharing a snippet from her latest release Magnar. I'm continuing with my snippets from Lachann's Legacy over at Mary Morgan's blog. Enjoy!
“Halvard claims to have witnesses to the contrary.”
“He lies!” she spat out in defense. “He’s as low as a snake with venom.” She slashed the air with her hand. “He most likely used threats, or worse.” Elspeth trembled, and she wrapped her arms around her body. “Those are good people we left behind. Now they are suffering.”
Moved by her sorrow, Magnar drew her to him. When she didn’t stiffen or object, he placed his arms around her. “We can thwart their plan with another,” he uttered softly, her scent filling him.

The Wolf surrenders to no one.
Known as the Barbarian, Magnar MacAlpin is a fierce ruler for those under his command. As leader of the Wolves of Clan Sutherland, his loyalty and obedience lies with Scotland. However, the king’s last demand is not something Magnar will tolerate.
After Elspeth Gunn’s brother the Chieftain of Castle Steinn is murdered, she flees with her nephew, and finds safety amongst a band of men who are rumored to be part wolf. When the king forces her to wed a heathen Northman, she fears losing her heart and soul not only to the man, but the beast as well.
In order to restore peace to a shattered clan, Magnar and Elspeth travel a treacherous path that challenges their beliefs. When evil seeks to destroy ancient traditions, will Magnar be compelled to restrain his wolf or allow him free to protect those he loves?
