Welcome to our final week of Medieval Monday! In case you missed our previous posts, fourteen medieval romance authors are sharing a “First Kiss” scene from one of our books.

To see all the posts for today, visit our Facebook Group, Medieval Romance Lovers. We’ll have fun giveaways every Friday, so be sure to drop by and comment on the Friday Giveaway post!

Our snippet this week is from Knight of Runes, a delightful time travel romance by Ruth Casie. Once again, I have the pleasure of hosting the first kiss moment for this beautiful scene. Thank you for joining us for this fun spring blog hop 🙂 Enjoy!

From Ruth:

Today is the last day of our Medieval Monday blog hop. It’s been fun sharing excerpts from stories written by my friends. I hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as I have.

It was a delicious sensation. When she reached his lips, he knew he was lost. He took her face in both his hands and looked at her passion-drenched eyes and swollen, bruised lips. His decision made, he nestled her head to his chest and tried to will the storm to subside. He stroked her hair as the charged air settled, and a warm breeze caressed them both. After several minutes, her deep breathing told him she had fallen asleep. He sat for a few minutes and enjoyed holding her. He would tell the king he would not give her back.

SPECIAL BONUS: Join me on my blog next week, May 17 to read the entire scene. For fun, I’ll also post an interview with Lord Arik and Rebeka. https://ruthacasie.blogspot.com/

He is her key to return to the 21st century.
She is the only one who can save him.


May, 1605

When Lord Arik, a druid knight, finds Rebeka Tyler wandering his lands without protection, he swears to keep her safe. But Rebeka can take care of herself. When Arik sees her clash with a group of attackers using a strange fighting style, he’s intrigued.

Rebeka is no ordinary seventeenth-century woman—she’s travelled back from the year 2011, and she desperately wants to return to her own time. She poses as a scholar sent by the king to find out what’s killing Arik’s land. But as she works to decode the ancient runes that are the key to solving this mystery and sending her home, she finds herself drawn to the charismatic and powerful Arik.

As Arik and Rebeka fall in love, someone in Arik’s household schemes to keep them apart, and a dark druid with a grudge prepares his revenge. Soon Rebeka will have to decide whether to return to the future or trust Arik with the secret of her time travel and her heart.


“Ruth A. Casie, weaves an exciting and beautifully told legendary tale that is both rich and engaging.  It is full of, ‘on the edge of your seat’ suspense, mind-boggling drama and a forever-after romance. Ms. Casie’s sparkling new novel, KNIGHT OF RUNES is a winner!” ~ Romance Junkies
