The Source of the Quest

Welcome back for another session of #WeWriWar! These are the links to follow for quick little snippets from all sorts of genres. I write historical romance :) I'm continuing with my excerpt from my latest release, Lachlann's Legacy. Enjoy!


 

She flashed a frown then shook her head. “No. No. All are fine.”


He rubbed his chin. This didn’t sound like a journey at all. “Then I’m stumped. Are ye looking to have repairs done?”


“Aye, too many for the three of ye, but nay.”


He couldn’t remember ever seeing her so fretted.


“Not now–’tis not what I’m asking of ye.” She blew a breath in frustration and picked up the parcel. “This! This is what I’m asking of ye. We have the funds, but what we need is for ye to collect them for us.”


 

Hidden secrets could tear them apart as fast as their passion drove them together


On the Moray coast in Scotland…


Ethne’s genuine and caring nature makes her invaluable to her brother as his son’s caretaker, but he and his wife treat her as little more than their servant. When she learns their tribal leader would use her chaste status for his own purposes, Ethne plans to escape and reluctantly accepts the help of Lachlann—a handsome pilgrim she only just met at the local faire.


Despite her independent spirit, Ethne feels drawn to Lachlann. Her instincts say his intentions are honorable, but can she trust him with her heart?



Raised by his godfather with few clues to his family’s past, Lachlann values his freedom and the brotherhood of his highlander kin. Disguised as a pilgrim on a mission for the priory, he encounters Ethne, a warm, intelligent maiden whose courage in the face of a loveless marriage awakens an intense need to protect her.


Unfortunately, Ethne is one of the very people he must deceive to explore the cave system containing clues to the lost treasure he seeks. But he cannot abandon her to an uncertain fate—or deny the simmering tension between them.


With religious prejudice running high and both of them facing tests of loyalty, Lachlann and Ethne may realize the only way to fight for their futures is to surrender... to each other.

Does she know what she really wants? Good tension in this snippet.

Sounds like she can't quite come out and say what she wants of him. Nice build up of tension as we wait to find out.

It looks like they're both a little flustered at this conversation. :-) Their brogue is marvelous!

"We have the funds..." She needs him to collect them? Hmmm. Makes me wonder what their relationship is.
