Gift of Honor (Knights of Honor Book 8) by Alexa Aston @AlexaAston #RLFblog #NewRelease #medievalromanceAlexa Aston, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Gift of Honor (Knights of Honor Book 8)

Genre: medieval romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Two outcasts come together and find the gift of love…
1387 A.D. – As a royal guardsman to King Richard II, Sir Hal de Montfort places duty above all else. When a royal rebellion threatens the king’s power, Hal is caught up in a political game and winds up losing everything dear to him. Broken in spirit and stripped of all knightly possessions, he begins the long journey to Kinwick, his parents’ home.
Because Lady Elinor Swan wasn’t the expected male heir, her unforgiving father exiles her from Whitley after her mother dies in childbirth. Elinor is taken in by the estate’s falconer and spends years training to be a falconer herself. She rescues Hal when he is injured by highwaymen. As he heals physically and she teaches him about working with raptors, Hal regains his confidence and becomes a better man than the charming, lighthearted knight of the royal court he’d once been.
Will Elinor learn how to fit into a world she’s never been a part of—especially after she fears she will be blamed for the death of a noblewoman who bore her a grudge?
Join Hal and Elinor as they learn about each other and what counts most in life.
*Each book in the Knights of Honor series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Series Order:
Book #1 Word of Honor
Book #2 Marked by Honor
Book #3 Code of Honor
Book #4 Journey to Honor
Book #5 Heart of Honor
Book #6 Bold in Honor
Book #7 Love and Honor
Book #8 Gift of Honor
Why did you write this book?
This is part of my Knights of Honor series, and I’m giving all of Geoffrey and Merryn de Montfort’s children their own love stories. I enjoyed writing for Hal de Montfort when he was a toddler in Code of Honor and am delighted to write him as a mature knight who finds his soul mate in falconer Elinor Swan.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Hands down, it’s historical romance—but I also enjoy thrillers, mysteries, and suspense.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I will always adore Miss Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’ve been asked by Kathryn Le Veque and Eliza Knight to contribute a romance to their Pirates of Britannia, so I’m deep into writing about pirates at the moment! God of the Seas will come out in January 2019 as a part of the Pirates of Britannia World. It will serve as a prequel to a three-book medieval trilogy, The King’s Cousins.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’ll be finishing up my Knights of Honor series in 2018. Path to Honor, Nan de Montfort’s story, will be released in September, and Jessimond de Montfort will get her HEA in November’s Return to Honor.

A Countess Most Daring by Jessie Clever @JessieClever #RLFblog #RegencyRomanceToday’s featured book is A Countess Most Daring, a Regency romance by Jessie Clever.

Fans of both historical romance and historical women’s fiction will love this smart, witty, and suspenseful series from bestselling author Jessie Clever. If you like Lauren Willig, Deanna Raybourn, or Amanda Quick, you’re going to fall in love with this author.
Katharine Cavanaugh, the Countess of Stirling, has always lived according to the expectations of her heritage. The daughter of a revered naval captain and accomplished British spy, Katharine has always done what others expected of her without ever wondering what she expected of herself.
American mercenary Matthew Thatcher has spent his life running away from every expectation he has for himself. Fleeing from a tragedy he believes his careless youth caused, Thatcher is more than willing to offer his services to the highest bidder, no matter the danger.
But when their latest mission from the British War Office goes wrong and they find themselves trapped behind enemy lines in Naples during Napoleon’s last push for European domination, they must decide if they dare to realize the greatest expectation of all: the expectation of love.

Jessie decided to be a writer because the job of Indiana Jones was already filled.
Taking her history degree dangerously, Jessie tells the stories of courageous heroines, the men who dared to love them, and the world that tried to defeat them.
Jessie makes her home in the great state of New Hampshire where she lives with her husband and two very opinionated Basset Hounds.
