Thank you so much for having me, Nancy! I’m very excited to share my latest release, A Knight’s Christmas Wish. This medieval novella is the start of a new series for me and it’s only $.99!
Here’s a little more about it: Weary and injured, Sir Rylan de Bremont wants only to return home for Christmas after two long years away. But first he must deliver terrible news to a newly widowed lady.
Lady Kayte Dufrane has been miserable in her marriage to a gruff lord far older than she. Rylan’s news gives her freedom but she fears her late husband’s brother will claim her for his own. This strong, handsome knight might be the answer to her prayers if she can convince him to help her escape.
Though Rylan has no desire to become embroiled in the beautiful Kayte’s dilemma further delaying his journey home, he can’t resist her pleas. Will his Christmas wish be filled with more than he bargained for?
What inspired you to write this book?
This book follows the oldest son of Nicholas and Elizabeth, the hero and heroine from Trust In Me, the second book in The Vengeance Trilogy. When I decided to write another medieval series, it seemed natural to follow the children of the couples in my previous stories. I love getting a glimpse of previous characters in books I’ve read and hope my readers do too.
The hero in this story, Rylan, has a father and siblings with second sight, but he does not have it. I thought it would be interesting to explore how that affects him and his confidence in himself. Kayte is a wonderful match for him and has a few issues of her own. J
What kind of research was involved?
The story is set in 13th Century England and in addition to getting that period correct, I also did significant research on Christmas traditions in medieval times. Obviously they didn’t have Christmas trees then, but interestingly enough, they did decorate with evergreens. It was interesting to discover how many of our traditions began centuries ago. December and January were difficult months of the year as the days were short and the nights long. The fields couldn’t be worked, and with only candles to see by, it is no wonder that most people celebrated a full two weeks between Christmas Eve and the Epiphany.
