Medieval Romance, An Ancient Curse-Great New Stories by Louise Lyndon and Barbara Edwards

Happy Friday! As we continue the Christmas Book Blitz I’m so happy to welcome a medieval and a contemporary paranormal/fantasy involving an ancient curse.

The medieval is by new author, Louise Lyndon. I love seeing medieval stories—the more the merrier for our historical readers.

Of Love and Vengeance by Louise Lyndon
Forced to marry Lord Aymon to ensure her nephews survival, English Lady Laila vows undying hatred for the Norman she holds responsible for so many deaths. Discovering Aymon has committed an act of treason gives her the chance to seek vengeance he deserves.  But will Laila really let Aymon die once she learns the truth?

A hardened Norman warrior, Lord Aymon has lived through atrocities no man ever should. With the invasion of England over, all he wants is a quiet life and a wife who will give him heirs and obey his every command. Instead, he finds himself wed to feisty and outspoken Laila. But when she learns the truth of his treasonous act, can Aymon count on her to keep his secret?

And Barbara Edwards gives us another exciting entry in her Finding Rhodes series. And see below for links to her earlier two--both exciting!

THE ANCIENT CURSE-Finding Rhodes End Book Three

Evil never dies. And this time it wanted Rainie. It wanted more than her life, it wanted her soul. The artifacts Rainie Gamble handled came from every era and she could read their past with a touch. After her Father’s deceit, she’d lost her beloved career until Thomas hired her.
Thomas Broquette needed Rainie for more than her psychic ability. She would unknowingly bring her father into his reach. Thomas needed him to return the stolen paintings in Mason’s estate. He needed Rainie to destroy the evil items Mason left behind. Then he realized he needed her for much, much more.

Changing took a few minutes. She pressed her hand to her throbbing forehead and  studied her reflection in the mirror. Pain lined her forehead. She wondered why Thomas’ touch eased it. Her tangled hair had escaped her twist and needed combing. Humming, she took the time to neaten it.  
Silence enveloped the second floor. With the power off, the soft music she played in her bedroom had been silenced. She half expected her footsteps to echo when she exited the room and walked down the hall. 

Thomas had probably finished mopping up, and she needed to lock her computer and file her notes  before the back-up battery failed.

Her pulse beat faster. She looked forward to spending some time with him. Hopefully, he was still in the library. She shook her head. She paused as the hair on her nape stirred like she was being watched.

A cool draft washed over her nape and she glanced back along the hall. All the doors had been closed. They still were. She frowned, and then shook the feeling off.  No-one watched although her skin itched.

Pausing to enjoy the light emotions held by the smooth banister, she stroked the wood.

A violent shove between her shoulders tumbled her down the stairs like a thrown doll.

The previous two in the series:
