Welcome to another Medieval Monday. Today’s guest is Cathy MacRae who is sharing her next snippet from The Highlander’s Welsh Bride. Happy reading and enjoy!
A Welsh princess on the run from King Edward’s army, Carys finds herself embroiled with pirates pillaging the western coastline of Scotland. She has escaped their clutches twice before. Has her luck at last run out?
Carys and Hanna turned to Iain. Hanna nodded grimly. “We are at your disposal.” She glanced over her shoulder. “Tell your captain to keep us away from the witch’s cauldron.”
“They will attempt to run us aground.”
Birk startled at Hanna’s voice at his shoulder. “Ye shouldnae be here. Protect the bairns.”
She laughed softly, a sound of defiance and challenge. “The women in your family are warriors, Birk MacLean. ’Twill serve ye well to never forget.”
The Highlander’s Welsh Bride
By Cathy & DD MacRae
It was over. Prince Llywelyn was dead, his soldiers fleeing before King Edward’s army. Carys, a distant cousin to the prince, herself a princess of Wales, had picked up arms alongside her husband more than a year ago. Now homeless, her husband buried beneath the good Welsh soil, she seeks shelter in the north, far from the reach of Longshanks’s men. Carys and Wales would never be the same again.
Birk MacLean has been ordered to take a bride and produce an heir. He grows weary of the lasses paraded before him, women of delicate nature and selfish motives. He desires a wife strong enough to help lead one of the most powerful clans in Western Scotland.
One like the Welsh woman sitting in his dungeon, arrested for poaching MacLean deer.
Can Birk convince Carys marriage to him is preferable to a hangman’s noose? And will the heard-headed Scot be worthy of a Princess of Wales?
From the towering Welsh mountains to the storm-swept Scottish coast comes a tale of betrayal and loss, deceit and passion. An epic tale of honor and the redeeming power of love.
