Cover Reveal and Contest: FOR THIS KNIGHT ONLY


It's here! I'm trilled to present the cover for my upcoming book FOR THIS KNIGHT ONLY, another in the Knights of Destiny series. This is  Roark and Alyss's story. You'll recognize them from my other medieval novels. Alyss is Henry's and Evie's sister. Below the cover you'll find the blurb. No release date yet, but soon... 

To celebrate, I'm giving away a $10 Amazon Gift Card. Just leave your email in the comment section. The drawing will be held next Monday.


Blurb:

Sir Roark will do anything to gain land, even beguile an unwilling lady into marriage. He knows she's much better off with a man to take control of her besieged castle, to say nothing of her desirable person. But it isn't long before he discovers that, although her eyes sparkle like sunlight on sea waves, her stubbornness alone could have defeated Saladin.   

Lady Alyss is determined to hold her family's castle, protect her people, and preserve her freedom— until her brother's dying wish binds her to a stranger. Still, she'll allow no rugged, over-confident, appealing knight to usurp her authority, even if she must wed him. Especially since he thinks a lady's duties begin and end with directing servants. Alyss has a few surprises for her new all-too-tempting lord.

But when a common enemy threatens everything, Roark and Alyss face a startling revelation: Without love, neither land nor freedom matters.

Family Theme Wraps Up Today on Medieval Monday With Book Giveaway



Merry Christmas to everyone! Today is our last excerpt installment of the Family Theme of Medieval Monday. And here is the end of my excerpt from SILVERHAWK.
 


[Barring a miracle or a war—could a war be a miracle?—she would wed this man old enough to
be her father.] Yet that life would be kinder than any other Garley connived. She must reconcile
to her fate. It was, after all, what she’d prayed God to send. A home, a husband, a family.

Her vision misted at the memory of the dark-haired mercenary, and she squeezed shut her eyes.

Reality held no room for childish dreams.

~~~~~
Please leave a comment for the chance to win a copy of SILVERHAWK. The winner, drawn from the names of those who commented on all my excerpts posted at all eight blogs, will be
announced next Monday right here on my blog.


Each of the eight Medieval Monday authors is offering the same give-away for one of their books, so be sure to comment on their blogs.

Blurb:
He’s everything a proper lady should never want; she’s everything a bastard mercenary can
never have.

Sir Giles has come to England to kill his father, who seduced and betrayed his mother. First,
however, he’ll seek sweet revenge—kidnap the old lord’s new betrothed. But when Giles
uncovers a plot against King Richard, he faces a dilemma: take the lady or track the traitors.
What’s a good mercenary to do? Both, of course.

Lady Emelin has had enough. Abandoned in a convent by her brother, she finally has a chance
for home and family. Yet now she’s been abducted. Her kidnapper may be the image of her
dream knight, but she won’t allow him to spoil this betrothal. Her only solution: escape
Rescuing the intrepid lady—while hunting traitors—is a challenge Giles couldn’t anticipate. But
the greatest challenge to Giles and Emelin is the fire blazing between them.

I'm so pleased to welcome the talented Sherry Ewing to this penultimate post of Medieval Monday's Family Theme. Sherry brings one of her favorite time travel hisoricals  TO FOLLOW MY HEART, book three of The Knights of Berwyck, A Quest Through Time series.

Next week the last posting will be on the individual authors' own blogs. So be sure to check out how these exciting excerpts end.

 Excerpt:
Fletcher watched the woman at his side as she daintily picked at her food on her side of the trencher they shared. That his side was empty, as he reached for another helping of venison, said much for his appetite this eve.

“’Tis not to your liking, my lady?” he asked her whilst holding out his chalice. A serf quickly came up behind him and refilled it with red wine. He watched her hesitation and could somewhat understand her plight. “You are amongst friends here, Lady Jenna. Please, speak your mind.”

“No... I mean... yes, the food is fine. I don’t suppose there are... vegetables?”

Be sure to leave a comment for Sherry below for a chance to win an eCopy of To Follow My Heart, The Knights of Berwyck, A Quest Through Time (Book 3). A winner will be randomly selected and announced on Medieval Monday, December 31st.

Blurb:
Love is a leap. Sometimes you need to jump…

After a gut wrenching break up with her fiancé, Jenna Sinclair heads to the coast to do a little soul searching. To say everything is subject to change is putting it mildly. Her world is not only turned upside down, but pretty much torn asunder when she is pulled through a time gate on the beach beneath the Cliff House and transported more than eight hundred years into the past.

Fletcher Monroe, captain of the garrison knights at Berwyck Castle, has wasted too much time pining for a woman who will never be his. When he finally decides to move on with his life and focus on his duties, he is suddenly confronted with a woman who magically appears at his feet. This could either be the best thing that has ever happened to him or another cursed event in a string of many. He soon finds he is wildly attracted to her, but she’s scared to death of him ─ not a very encouraging beginning.

From the shores of California to twelfth century England and back again, Jenna and Fletcher must find a way to reconcile their two different worlds before Time forever tears them apart.
