It's Sunday so that's Weekend Writing Warrior time! WeWriWar is a group of writers sharing 8-10 lines of a bigger work. The group contains all different genres so you can get a taste of whatever hits your fancy.
My snippet is from my latest release, Lachlann's Legacy. It begins today where Lachlann learns of his quest. Yes, this is a romance. Yes, it is historical. Eleventh century to be precise. And one more thing...Enjoy :)

He couldn’t remember ever seeing her so fretted.
On a quest to uncover hidden treasure, a highlander tries to protect a vulnerable but strong-willed outcast while fighting his feelings for her.
Ethne is a woman of fortitude, intelligence, and pride, but her life is about to change for the worst. Either she'll be forced into marriage or forced to flee her home. She'll need to call on all her strengths to accept the biggest challenge of all: trusting the pilgrim that holds her heart.
Lachlann is a man of honor, integrity, and passion, but he's never met a female so fearless that she thrives on every attempt to subdue her. When he finally earns her trust, will finding out the truth about him be the death knell to that spirit?
