Here is my teaser for today!!!
..When the door opened to reveal Rob, mudstained and bedraggled from his hard ride, Lettice dropped her knife and ran to him with a cry of relief. She put her arms out to embrace him, he caught her and set her aside with hard hands that bruised her upper arms.. pg 215 of The Princeling, The Morland Dynasty Series, book by Cynthia Harrod Eagles.
“A powerful and beautifully written novel.”*
“The Morlands’ rise to power, as tenuous as it was unexpected, now faces its greatest threat. Elizabeth I is on the throne and Protestantism is sweeping the land, threatening the position of the Catholic Morlands and forcing them to seek new spheres of influence. John, the heir, rides north to the untamed Borderlands to wed the daughter of a Northumberland cattle lord. But he finds he must first prove himself and win her heart through blood and battle. John’s gentle sister Lettice is given in marriage to a ruthless Scottish baron, and in the treacherous court of Mary, Queen of Scots, she learns the fierce lessons of survival. Through birth and death, love and hatred, triumph and heartbreak, the Morlands fight to hold on to their place among England’s aristocracy.”
