Louise Lyndon Shares Her Latest Medieval and a Chance at a Gift Card



It's my pleasure to welcome Louise Lyndon today with a glimpse of her latest exciting medieval, out now.


Louise will award a $10 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour so don't forget to enter.


BLURB:



Aveline de Bondeville is on the run. Determined to keep out of the hands of the cruel Raimbaut de Blois she will do whatever it takes to stay alive. And so when she finds herself in the company of Troy de Gysborne she must quickly decide if she can trust him. But can she confess to murder knowing it would mean her certain death?



Troy de Gysborne did the unthinkable; he tore the bonds of brotherhood and left a path of destruction in his wake. And now Troy must face those he betrayed, including the father who long ago renounced him. But to confess to the crime he committed will cost him everything. Including Aveline. But can he remain silent if it means losing the woman he loves?




Excerpt



“What have they done to you?” Troy’s deep, baritone voice rumbled through her. She could not look him in the eye. “You needn’t be scared of me, wee fille. You have my word I will honor and protect you. I am not like those other men. I will do you no harm.”



Before she could say she truly wanted to believe him, Troy pulled her gently toward him and positioned her so she sat between his thighs. She did not lean back against him, her distrust like a solid piece of ice wedged between them. She gripped the edges of her blanket tightly and held it against her like a shield.



“You have only my word I will not hurt you.” The fine hairs on her arms stood on end as his warm breath danced across her neck. She closed her eyes and kept her back ramrod straight. Heat burned her cheeks as he nuzzled her neck. “And I pray in time you will accept my word as being truthful.”



She leaned ever so slightly against him. And when he wrapped his strong arms around her, she released the breath she hadn’t realized she’d been holding.



“It’s late. We should go back to bed.” Yet, she made no move to leave his embrace. Instead, she placed her hands on his thighs. The heat of him seeped into her palms, up her arms, and straight in to her heart. While she believed Troy when he said he would do her no harm, physically, Aveline knew there was more than one way to hurt someone.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:



Louise grew up in country Victoria, Australia, before moving to England, where for sixteen years she soaked up the vibrancy of London and the medieval history of England. She has since returned to Australia and now lives in Melbourne.



In 2013, Louise won first prize in the historical romance category of the Crested Butte Sandy Writing Contest for her story, The Promise, which has since been retitled and is now known as, Of Love & Vengeance.



When not writing, Louise can be found covered in mud, crawling under barbed wire and hoisting herself over twelve foot walls!

    1. Hey Mai. I met my best friend while I was living and working in London. We'd been working together for a few months but hadn't really spoken. Then at the office Christmas we bonded! That was about 12 years ago and while neither of us live in London any more - we don't even live in the same country - we still remain best friends!

  4. Thanks for the excerpt :) Do you like to listen to music when you write?

    1. Hi Amber. I'm looking forward to Louise's answer, too. For some authors, music is essential to the creative process.

    2. Hey Amber - great question. I don't usually listen to music when i write as i find it too distracting. Yet, oddly enough i do have the tv on in the background - but with the sound low so i can barely make out what they're saying. I can't write when it's quiet. I've tried but i get distracted. I do find it weird tbe tv doesn't bother me but music does!

  6. Your book drew me in and I would love to read it. Did you go back to Australia because it is home? THANK YOU for your giveaway.

    1. Hey Melody! I hope you do get a chance to read it. I loved writing it. Yes, Australia is my home. I lived in the UK for 16 years - all my family remained in Australia - and no one, not even myself, expected me to return. Although, i did come back often for visits. But i just felt that if i wanted my own place (way too expensive to live on your own in London ) and to experience warm weather again it was time i moved back home. I've been back 3 years and do not regret my decision to come back. Although I do miss London and my friends.
