Kilted Souls Blog Hop – stop here!

Hi, readers! This is a post as part of Ashley Granger’s Kilted Souls hop. I’m posting an excerpt from my LATEST novel in progress, STEELHEART.


In this past hour, he’d gone after David’s brother, Richard’s champion and a man known throughout England as the Defender of the Realm. They even called him the Lion’s Claw, for a lion’s deadliest weapons were his claws, and Christopher de Lohr was quite deadly.  He was a great man, no doubt, and a worthy target for John’s hatred. In fact, there as probably no one in England more worthy of being John’s target.

But, like the poor marksman he was, John had missed the mark. The man had struck Christopher’s wife in an ambush meant for the husband and had injured the woman. David had been present at the ambush and he’d fought off a horde of John’s personal guard who had been trying to wipe out anything with the name de Lohr attached to. A young knight, who was the cousin of Christopher’s best friend, Marcus Burton, had fallen beneath the steely blades of John’s assassins. Christopher’s wife had also been injured.  In truth, it had been a bloodbath begging for vengeance.


For a chance to win the signed paperback of this book, answer two questions for me:

  1. What is the name of David’s brother’s novel, and;
  2. What are the names of David and Christopher’s parents? (they’re in another Le Veque novel and referred to many times in David’s brother’s novel!)

I will select two winners at random from the correct answers. Winners will be announced tomorrow evening here on my website. Make sure you sign up for my blog –  winners will be drawn from those who sign up (or who are already signed up!).

Happy hopping!
