Romance set in medieval times

Today’s featured book, Love and Honor is a medieval romance by Alexa Aston.
1385 A.D. – Knighted on the battlefield for extreme bravery, Edward de Montfort accepts an invitation to serve in King Richard’s guard at the royal court. When the king sends him on a covert mission to Canterbury, Edward hopes success will allow him to win his freedom so he can return home to a quieter life.
Lady Rosalyne Parry loses her parents when she is an infant and is raised by her uncle, an artist of some renown. Due to his failing health, Rosalyne takes over Templeton Parry’s commissions, painting in secret while permitting him to receive the credit since she believes no one would accept a woman as an artist.
Rosalyne meets Edward while he is disguised as a peasant working on Canterbury’s wall, and they fall deeply in love. When Edward reveals his true identity to Rosalyne, he convinces her to come to London—and step out from the shadows in order to become recognized as an artist in her own right.
Join Edward and Rosalyne as they navigate the political waters at court and find a deep, abiding love.

1395 A.D. – Adopted as a newborn by one of England’s most powerful families, Jessimond de Montfort is now grown—and curious about her roots. She sets out to learn who she is away from her family and joins a mummers’ troupe, where she serves as a seamstress and troubadour, hoping she’ll discover love along the way, as all her married siblings have.
Returning from two years of battle in the king’s service, Sir Marcus de Harte discovers his beloved mother has died and his father has remarried and fathered a pair of daughters. His anger drives Marcus from Hartefield from his home and he finds a new home among a group of actors.
Drawn to one another, Jessimond and Marcus become friends—and then lovers—until they are driven apart by unforeseen circumstances.
Join Jessimond and Marcus as they move heaven and earth in order to unite once more and share in a powerful love.

Why did you write this book?
This is the final book in my Knights of Honor series. I’ve told the story of all of Geoffrey and Merryn de Montfort’s children. This is the love story of their youngest, Jessimond, who is adopted.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Besides romance, I love thrillers.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’m partial to Atticus Finch. He’s a great lawyer, father, and role model for all.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m excited about The King’s Cousins, a trilogy that will come out early in 2019. Each sibling gets their HEA—Katelyn in The Pawn; Landon in The Heir; and Quill in The Bastard.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Besides The King’s Cousins, I have a January release in the Pirates of Britannica series, God of the Seas. The hero, Godwin de Blays, is actually the great-grandfather to the siblings featured in The King’s Cousins.
Next summer, my first Regency trilogy will be released! I’m excited about writing in a new romance subgenre.

Path to Honor (Knights of Honor #9) by Alexa Aston

Genre: medieval romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
1388 A.D.  Lord Tristan Therolde is a broken man who has closed himself off from all feelings. He is working to rebuild Leventhorpe, his estate, and wants to find his sister a husband. Tristan travels to Sandbourne, which boasts of having the best horses in all of England, hoping to add to his livestock and breed horses. When he arrives, he meets a most unusual woman and fights his attraction to her.
Nan de Montfort may not be accomplished in womanly arts, but she can do anything a man can—especially when it comes to archery. Skilled with both a crossbow and longbow, Nan is training her cousin’s soldiers in warfare when a handsome nobleman arrives and catches her interest like no man has before.
Nan comes from a family where everyone marries for love and is bitterly disappointed when she discovers Tristan denies that love even exists. She rejects his offer of marriage because she refuses to compromise and settle for less than she deserves, leaving both of them heartbroken. When Tristan discovers Nan’s life is in danger, he rides to her rescue and realizes the spirited beauty was right all along—that love is real and lasting—but will he be able to share his discovery with Nan?
Join Nan and Tristan as they fight against impossible odds to come together and unite in both trust and love.

Why did you write this book?
Path to Honor is continuing my Knights of Honor series, and I want to give all of Geoffrey and Merryn de Montfort’s children their own HEA. Each of the de Montforts have made a love match, and I wanted tomboy Nan, an archer, to find a man who didn’t believe in love—and change his mind.

I’m drawn to historical romance, maybe because I was a history teacher AND I write it!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I adore Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice.

I’m working on edits for Season of Honor, my contribution to the Dragonblade Publishing holiday anthology A Night of Angels, which begins its Amazon preorder tomorrow!

What books will we see from you in coming months?
Besides the November releases of A Night of Angels and Return to Honor, January 2019 will see a contribution to the Pirates of Britannia series, God of the Seas.
