Nightmares with Nightshirts by Linda Hoyland

Author: Linda Hoyland

Title: Nightmares with Nightshirts

Rating: PG13

Warning: Mild sexual allusions

Theme: Harvest

Elements: Yellow, crop, divide

Author's Notes: I respect all the wonderful writers who see Éomer and Lothiriel as a love match and enjoy their stories and see their point of view as equally valid to mine. Tolkien never told us. I take a different view, though, and see it as an arranged marriage for political reasons. This story is a sort of prequel to my current WIP “The Sword in the Tree”, but I hope will stand on its own.

With thanks to Julia for the idea and her encouragement. I did not have time to ask anyone to edit, so please tell me if you spot any typos!

Summary:  Éomer’s wedding night seems doomed to disaster when he learns of the customs of his new bride’s homeland
