Medieval Monday with Judith Sterling

Happy New Year! And welcome back for another Medieval Monday. I have Judith Sterling visiting today with a great snippet from Night of the Owl. You can find my next snippet from Daughter of the Overking over at her blog. Enjoy :)


Robert reached for Constance’s hand, and his head bobbed from side to side in time with the rhythm. Just beyond him, the feisty Saxon “scribe” beamed at the young musician. She’d changed into a gown of forest green, and the color suited her, as did her glowing countenance. Ranulf’s pleasant voice and clever words seemed the source of her delight. In fact, his music—together with his rakish grin and dark hair and eyes—had turned every female head in the hall. Lady Ardyth wasn’t the first maiden to succumb to the goliard’s charm, and she wouldn’t be the last.

Follow along next week on Mary Morgan’s blog:


PhD student Ardyth Nightshade has renounced men and pursues her twentieth-century

career with single-minded focus. When fate whisks her to medieval England, she meets her match in a man whose passions mirror her own. Can she sacrifice ambition for a love she never sought?

Hugh, Lord Seacrest confounds all who know him. He refuses to marry without a meeting of minds and hearts, and no lady has even approached his ideal…until Ardyth. But she's an odd one, with unique skills, shocking habits, and total conviction she needs no man. She also harbors secrets, and in the midst of rumors, plots, and murder, trust is fragile.

A woman outside of her time. A man ahead of his. They must take a leap of faith to forge a bond that will shape history.
