Medieval Monday: White Rose of Avalon by Kelley Heckart

Welcome to Medieval Monday. This time we are focusing on a nature theme. The first snippet is from my book, White Rose of Avalon. Each Monday, there will be a different piece of the excerpt on another author's blog, and I will be hosting other medieval authors on my blog. Enjoy the treasure hunt!

Do you like captivating, passionate historical fantasy featuring King Arthur, Gwenhwyfar, Merlin, Nimue, Morgaine, and Lancelot? Inspired by The Mists of Avalon, this sensual retelling of the Arthurian romances brings these legendary characters to life.

Destiny cannot be altered.

With Britannia falling to the Saxon hordes, Morgaine, Queen of the Faeries, has no choice but to make a pact with the Christian monks. She promises to give them a High King who will unite the Britons against the Saxons if he takes a queen from the faery realm. Morgaine hopes this will restore the Goddess faith and return Avalon to its rightful place. She sends Lancelot to guard the future High King, but when a love potion falls into the wrong hands, all seems lost.
Gwenhwyfar is the only hope for the future, but betrayal, revenge, and forbidden love surround her, all of which could send both Britannia and Avalon into ruins.

Excerpt snippet #1

Morgaine smiled, pride swelling in her chest as she observed Gwenhwyfar strolling amongst wildflowers. The child had grown into an enchanting maiden of seventeen, her white-blonde hair curling to her hips, and her skin as soft and fair as a white rose. She turned to Morgaine. Her heart-shaped lips, crimson like crushed rowanberries, curved into a smile, and her sapphire-colored eyes brightened.
