It’s Medieval Monday and this week’s guest is Judith Sterling who is sharing her excerpt from Night of the Owl. Happy reading and be sure to leave Judith a comment. #Justsaying
To Hugh’s left, Isobel huffed. “What nonsense is this?” Her voice was riddled with irritation.
ʼTwas only to be expected. Her enthusiasm over their hawking excursion had died a sudden death when a rainstorm cut the outing short.
“Of course, I’ve heard of the treasure,” she continued.
“Who hasn’t?” The question came from Juliana, seated to her sister’s left.
Isobel gave her a nod, then turned back to Hugh. “But fairy lights along the cliffs? Hogwash.”
Night of the Owl
by Judith Sterling
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.
