Dame Audrey by Aurora Springer
Genre Medieval Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
Young widow seeks true love in this vivid Medieval romance with a touch of fantasy
In fourteenth century Britain, Dame Audrey cherishes her independence as the widow of a wealthy cloth merchant. But some of the wealthier traders covet her profitable business and she fears they will invoke the Abbot’s authority to compel her to marry a man of their choice. Her worst nightmare is suffering under a cruel husband like the hateful jeweler, Henry Goldsmith, who has threatened to curb her lively spirits.
Audrey joins a pilgrimage to Glastonbury to pray for guidance. The holy relics give her no inspiration nor do her fellow travelers. On the homeward journey, she aids the dying victim of a brutal robbery. She wins the stranger’s blessing and a gold brooch with a green dragon. Back in her hometown, the faerie brooch attracts trouble from thieves of all ranks and the attentions of a handsome yeoman, Selwyn Drake. As her nightmare looms nearer, she grows desperate to preserve her freedom.
Can the magic brooch help Audrey evade the schemes to force her into wedlock or must she submit to a husband’s will?
Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Yes. I have published science fiction and fantasy adventures and romances. Dame Audrey is the first historical romance I have written.
How do you come up with ideas?…
Sometimes, I find them in my dreams. Once I have an idea of a scene with the two main characters, I let them loose to interact.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
I enjoy the ability to create vivid characters and fantastic new worlds.
When did you write your first book?…
More than thirty years ago, I wrote an entire science fiction romance novel. I finally typed the handwritten story into a digital file and published The Lady is Blue in 2014.
