Beltane Lion by Cindy Spencer Pape
Rhodri of Llyan has returned from the Crusades a cursed man. On the way home to Wales, a young friend is sorely injured. Rhodri seeks the aid of village healer, Selene, whose gift for healing is as uncanny as her beauty. Selene’s magic can cure wounds, but she isn’t sure she can break the curse or heal the wounds on Rhodri’s heart?
“You’re welcome to stay and eat, though you’d likely be far more comfortable without all that metal. I’m no squire, but I’ve assisted with armor before, and I promise no one will raise a sword to you while you sit at my table.”
He smiled, then, for the first time, and the beauty of it nearly brought Selene to her knees. Beneath the grime and blood, this lord was perhaps the most handsome specimen she’d ever seen. Not ethereally beautiful like her father, this was a rough man, accustomed to war, but his clear green eyes and deeply hewn features radiated strength and courage. His hair dusted his shoulders and would probably be a golden brown when clean. The depth of concern for his former squire spoke volumes about his character. And yet, now that she had time to actually look at him, she noticed a dark grey haze dimming the vibrant hues of his aura. He was a good man, she was sure of that, but something about him was very, very wrong.
“Thank you. I should tend to the horses first.”
“True, assuming they haven’t wandered off. There’s a stable in the rear, you’re welcome to put them there.”
When he returned, he stood still in the center of the room and lifted one arm to reveal the leather ties that anchored his breastplate. Selene grimaced, but stepped close. He didn’t smell too bad, she’d noticed that in the bedroom, but like any warrior, he’d sweated in his armor, and was in dire need of a bath.
By the time she’d gotten him disarmed, she was nearly faint from hunger. She’d poured a good bit of her personal power into the young man to ensure his recovery, which always left her weakened for a while. And there was something else, a sharp, tingling sensation she’d never felt the like of before. It was much like standing amid a lightning storm, with her skin taut and her senses awhirl. What was happening to her? Hastily, she moved away from him to serve the soup and a loaf of fresh-baked bread.
“Where are you bound, my lord? I can send word when your friend is ready to be moved.” She sipped the soup, understanding now why it had resisted spicing. In the back of her mind, she must have sensed an impending patient.
“Home to Wales.” He didn’t even pause between mouthfuls to answer. “But you won’t need to send for me. I’m staying.”
Staying? That was never going to work!
“But my lord, there is only the one bed.” True there was also the loft, where her father stayed on his visits, but Selene had planned on sleeping there herself.
He cocked one golden-brown eyebrow and tilted his head toward the ladder to the loft. So he’d seen it. Fie! Then he swallowed and nodded.
“I’ll pitch my campaign tent in the field beyond the cottage. I’ve spent more nights in that than in a bed these last many years.”
Oh. How utterly reasonable. Selene sagged into her chair and nodded.
