Please help me welcome to Medieval Monday my guest, Barbara Bettis. Barbara will be sharing a snippet from her novel, The Lady of the Forest. Be sure to leave her a comment to be in the running for our giveaway. Happy reading and enjoy!
“Who are you?” he rasped. “And what are you about here?”
“The lord of Stonehill sent word to watch for a stranger.”
Her tone had deepened, roughened. Did she really believe he’d think her a boy? “And he said to attack this stranger, bind him like prisoner?”
An unwelcome suspicion wormed into Henry’s aching head. “Why?”
“He said the man is a traitor to England and must die.”
He must pursue his enemy; she must protect her people. Can their love survive the duties that drive them apart?
When her elderly husband dies, Lady Katherine fakes her own death and disappears into the forest with others escaping the brutish new lord. Determined to protect her people, she knocks the wrong man senseless. But Lord Henry isn’t an enemy, he’s the brother of her childhood friend. Although his tender confidence tempts her, she’s bound by duty.
Henry of Chauvere has found the one lady he wants for his own, never mind she’s tied him hand and foot. When he learns the king has ordered her to wed Stonehill’s ruthless new master, he insists Kate seek haven with his sister. But she won’t desert her friends. Henry vows to solve her problem, provided he catches a traitor before the threat from Kate’s past catches her.
When a daring rescue compels Henry and Kate to join forces, their attraction grows into love. If only duty didn’t drive them apart.
