I’m excited to share the eighth excerpt from Sherry Ewing’s book, To Love A Scottish Laird: De Wolfe Back Connected World. At the end of the post, you will see where to next Monday to find out what happens next.
Sometimes you really can fall in love at first sight…
Lady Catherine de Wolfe knows she must find a husband before her brother chooses one for her, but none of the knights and lords she knows have caught her eye. A tournament to celebrate the wedding of the Duke of Normandy might be her answer. She does not expect to fall for a man after just one touch.
Laird Douglas MacLaren of Berwyck is invited to the tournament by the Duke of Normandy. He goes to ensure Berwyck’s safety once Henry takes the throne. He does not expect to become entranced by a woman who bumps into him.
Before they can express their feelings, the Duke orders them wed to strengthen ties between his English supporters and the borderland, and then separates them by commanding Douglas’s escort to his home.
Yet, nothing is ever quite that simple. Not everyone is happy with the union of this English lady and a Scottish laird. From the shores of France, to Berwyck Castle on the border between their countries, Douglas and Catherine must find their way to protect their newfound love.

“I had no notion of the intent of the duke but I must admit I was searching for a wife,” he answered with a mischievous grin.
“You wished to wed me?” she asked in what sounded like disbelief. Her face flushed.
Douglas shrugged again. “Tae be fair, I did not even know of ye, my lady, only that I needed tae find myself a bride.”
Catherine gasped before she swatted him. “You mean to tell me any lady would have suited?”
She gave him no chance to reply. He had a hard time not laughing at the lovely picture she presented as she cursed under her breath. At least some color had returned to her face.
