Here's my first foray into Weekend Writing Warrriors, a Sunday blog hop.
This snippet is from Viking in Tartan, which is a short story in the Naughty List boxed set.
Rhona glanced around. Their Great Hall wasna so great, but on this afternoon the servants had outdone themselves. They’d cleared away the remains of the previous night’s revelry and decorated every table, mantel and window ledge with fresh evergreen and holly boughs. Their fragrance and bright berries lent a festive atmosphere.
A fire crackled and glowed, fed by the great Yule log that smoldered in the hearth. She was relieved to notice that because the storm wind had died down, the chimney didna smoke—for they were standing in front of the hearth for the short ceremony. Everyone had washed and was clad in their best.
And then Da joined them, reciting the solemn but joyous words that would bind her to her Viking warrior forever before wrapping a swatch of Kilbirnie plaid around their crossed wrists.
Here's the 4-1-1 about the story and the boxed set:
The Naughty List is far from your usual vapid fare about kissing under the mistletoe and random sex at office Christmas parties. No--we have stories from the steamiest erotica to the most heart-warming happily ever after. We have medievals and futuristics, ménages and committed couples rediscovering love. You want romance? You want hot sex? We have it all.
Viking in Tartan is medieval romance from the Highland Vampires series.
A Viking raider brings change to little Clan Kilbirnie, especially to the chieftain’s daughter Rhona.
