Medieval Monday Ends on a Sad Note

This is the last week of the #MedMonFall20 session but we will be back after the New Year. Remember that you can find all the links to these and past snippets on the Medieval Romance Lovers page.

I'm finishing up with The Gentle Knight, book two in the Norman Conquest series with a sad farewell. And Lachlann ;) BTW All four books in the Norman Conquest series are available now for 99 cents in celebration of Lachlann's Legacy. Enjoy!


Lachlann moved in close. He glanced at Peter. Then at Brighit. He sighed as if in resignation then led both horses down the little hill. From the opposite direction came the women that were in the field.

“I will take you away from here if that is your desire,” Peter spoke in a hushed tone, for her ears only. “You need only say the word.”

Her rounded eyes were sad but she held his gaze. “I do what I must.”

“Greetings,” Mort called from behind Peter, his voice retreating as he no doubt approached the women. “Good day to you all.”

Brighit took a deep breath, straightened her shoulders, and looked deeply into Peter’s eyes. And waited. He fought down the ridiculous urge to throw her onto his horse, move up close behind her, and take her away despite what she said. He released his hands.


Brighit MacNaughton is an obedient daughter following her father's death bed decree that she take her vows and become the virginal bride of Christ. The hired men seeing her to the Priory at Tanshelf are more interested in the building resentment against the English king than her safety. But when the handsome Norman knight offers his protection against the lecherous mercenaries, he sparks her passion with his gentle touch and smoldering looks of desire, reminding her of dreams best forgotten. Can one night with him quench the intense need in her or will it cause the fire to burn out of control? Peter of Normandy is a trusted knight of King William, sent north to subdue the unrest and rumblings of revolt at York. Giving aid to an Irish princess more noble than many knights, he is quickly overcome with the need to possess her. With a body meant for a man's pleasure and an unrelenting stubbornness to follow her father's wishes, he struggles against giving her what she wants if it can only be for one night. Will one night of passion prove to be enough or will it unleash an insatiable need that makes him never want to let her go?

The Gentle Knight is available here

Noooo! Bridhit, there's still time to say the word! Peter, don't let her get away! Someone do something! Looks like I will have to find out on my own what happens next! :)

Happy Holidays, Ashley! Thank you for this wonderful round of Medieval Monday!

It is a sad ending, but I somehow don't think it's THE ending. If those are his instincts, I think he's going to think better of letting her go. Happy Holidays, Ashley!

I love his impulse to throw her onto his horse and carry her away from that fate. What does their future hold? A poignant end snippet, Ashley. Happy Holidays!

Would he have been wise to follow his instinct? Hmmm. :) Peter is a sweetie--if a strong knight can be a sweetie ! Happy Holidays, Ashley.
