Medieval Emotions Run Awry

Welcome back to Medieval Monday on my blog. There's a great group of authors just waiting to share their nature-themed snippets here. Be sure to check each of them out especially since there's a weekly give away! Everybody loves free :)

And now for another snippet from The Gentle Knight, book two in the Norman Conquest Series...but I have a BIG surprise... you'll see. And here we go :)


“Lachlann, can you see that your friends have everything in hand?”

A questioning frown crossed the man’s face before he said, “Aye.”

Peter fought for composure before facing Brighit. Her concern was apparent. Mort stood a few feet away, shaking his head.

“Can you give us a moment?”

Mort’s shocked expression gave Peter pause. To hell with the man! He wanted to speak to Brighit alone.


"Wait!" You might be saying, "Norman Conquest series?

This doesn't look like the cover to the Norman Conquest series.

This doesn't look like the cover from last week!"

You're right. I have a new cover to share! Same great story! Beautiful new cover :)

A medieval soldier returns home to find his lover died in childbirth just as his own mother had. Believing he is cursed, Peter of Normandy turns from love. When he must give escort to an Irish princess more noble than many knights, he struggles with his decision to live a solitary life. Can he take the chance that his love won’t be a death sentence and possibly make them stronger?

Padraig MacNaughton’s death-bed decree rips his daughter, Brighit, from the shelter of her protective clan in Ireland. Forced to take vows at a Priory in England, she finds herself in the hands of lecherous mercenaries with their own agendas. Dare she trust the Norman knight to see her safely to her new life as a nun? Even when she finds in him the fulfillment of all she’s ever wanted?

​Or will honor and duty eclipse their one chance for happiness?
