Kallen de Mangeron grew up in a convent, her noble family never knowing of her birth. When a new Mother Superior informs them of her existence, they send trusted knight Griffith Sommersby to escort her home.

Griffith’s heart broke when he lost his wife and infant son during childbirth, and he’s kept his feelings locked away from the world—until he meets Kallen. He soon learns her dark secret—that she sees auras around people—which allows her insight into their actions and personalities.

Now Quentin, bastard brother to the king, decides to harness Kallen’s gift in a plot to win the throne. Will Quentin successfully use a kidnapped Kallen as his political pawn, or will Griffith be able to stop him before Kallen changes the course of England’s history?

Meet Alys de Montfort from Heart of Honor by Alexa Aston @AlexaAston #RLFblog #medievalromanceMeet Alys de Montfort from Heart of Honor, Knights of Honor Book 5, a new medieval historical romance.
Age:18
Gender: female
Birthplace: Kinwick Castle, Southern England
Profession: healer
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Please provide a physical description of your character.
She has her mother’s long, chestnut hair and sapphire blue eyes and is tall and slender—but strong physically because of the work she does. She is a healer and knows much about herbs and creating medicines. People come from afar for her to treat them. She is happiest when caring for others and enjoys domestic tasks. She never become flustered, even if there’s a crisis. She’s also good with a sword and loves to ride her horse. She has a well of patience and is a good listener.
Who is the significant other in her life?
The man she thought she could never have—Kit Emory.
What special skills does your character rely on?
From the time she was young, Alys followed her mother, Merryn de Montfort, around. Merryn taught her daughter everything she knows about herbs and the healing arts. Alys surpassed her mother’s knowledge and even served as a lady-in-waiting at the royal court, where both King Edward and Queen Philippa would call upon her to address their aches and pains.
Are any of his skills a source of pride? Embarrassment? Which ones and why?
Poor Alys can’t carry a tune, though she does enjoy music. Instead of singing, she’ll hum from time to time.
What is your character’s family like?
Alys is the oldest child of Geoffrey and Merryn de Montfort. This is a close family, with six children and loving parents. She is barely older than her twin, Ancel, and she never lets him forget that. Alys has mothered her younger siblings—Hal, Edward, Nan, and Jessimond—and will make a wonderful mother to her own children.
If someone from your character’s past showed up, who would he most want it to be, and why?
This is actually the crux of Heart of Honor. Alys meets Sir Kit Emory at Windsor Castle when she is only twelve and fostering with the queen. Kit helps Alys through a crisis but both leave court soon after. Alys thinks of Kit fondly over the years, though she tries not to, knowing he was betrothed to a loathsome girl of her acquaintance and should be married by now. When she finds a badly-injured Kit on the road near Kinwick, Alys brings him home to nurse him back to health. When she discovers that Kit’s head injury has given him amnesia, she’s faced with a dilemma—tell him who he is and lose him again, forever—or selfishly keep the secret to herself and hope to make a life with him.
What is your character’s biggest need at the beginning of the story?
At the beginning of Heart of Honor, Alys is trying to find her place in the world. She is wondering if she is meant for marriage, as are most noblewomen, or if she should forsake it and dedicate her life to healing others.
What is your heroine’s breaking point?
After Kit’s memory returns and he finds out Alys knew who he was all along and kept it from him. Because of that, he’s done with her—which breaks her heart.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
Alexa always intended to tell all of the de Montforts’ love stories. She’s already written about my parents, Geoffrey and Merryn, and how they came together, as well as three of our cousins (Raynor, Elysande, and Avelyn). I’m lucky enough to be the first of Geoffrey and Merryn’s children that she is giving an HEA to! She’s hard at work on my twin brother’s story. I can’t wait to discover who she’ll pair Ancel with . . .
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
Alexa enjoys creating pairs of lovers who come together because she likes to bring out the best in others. When her heroes and heroines meet, they are better people for having come to know and love one another.
What do you wish your writer would write next?
Write my brothers’ and sisters’ stories, of course! I love Kit so very much and see how he’s enriched my life. I can’t wait for Ancel, Hal, Edward, Nan, and Jessimond to find their soul mates, too. Alexa’s promised me all of those love stories will unfold in 2018.
What other character from your book do you think your writer should write a book about? Care to tell us why?
I have a soft spot for Gilbert, our captain of the guard. He’s been loyal to the de Montforts for a very long time and helped me learn how to use a sword. Gilbert deserves to find true love.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your writer?
Thank you for making me a strong woman, one who nurtures and heals and has a large, loving family—but most of all, Alexa, I thank you for bringing Kit back to me. He is the love of my life and we plan on celebrating that love and treasuring it always.
Tell us about Heart of Honor.
1375 A.D. – When Sir Christopher “Kit” Emory’s beloved mother falls ill, he decides to seek the help of someone he met briefly at the royal court years ago—Lady Alys de Montfort, a renowned healer despite her young age. While traveling to her home at Kinwick Castle, Kit is accosted by a band of highwayman, who beat and rob him, leaving him to die. Fortunately, an escort party comes across him and Lady Alys insists they take the stranger home so she can use her skill in the healing arts to save his life.
The man awakens and has no memory of his identity, but Alys believes he might be Kit Emory, a young man she’d met once when she was a young girl. Kit comforted her when the queen died and Alys never forgot his kindness to her. Alys does what she can to jog Kit’s memory, even as she struggles with her growing attraction to him, knowing Kit was betrothed and must now be wed. Kit also finds his desire deepening for Alys, but he doesn’t know his own name, much less if he has a wife or family. Until he recalls who he is, he refuses to commit his heart to Alys.
Once Kit regains his memory and realizes he is free to pursue Alys, their road to love is anything but smooth.
Join Kit and Alys as they overcome events that continue to tear them apart and threaten the love they have for one another.

Curse of the Healer by Ashley York @ashleyyork1066 #RLFblog #historical #romanceToday’s featured book is Curse of the Healer, a historical romance by Ashley York

After the death of Brian Boru in 1014, a legend arose of a healer so great she could raise a man from the dead, with a power so strong it could make any warrior the next high king of Éire…and to steal it away from her, he need only possess her.

Fated to be a healer…

Aednat has spent her entire life training to be the great healer, knowing she must remain alone. When she meets Diarmuid, the intense attraction she feels toward him shakes her resolve to believe in such a legend. If she gives in to the passion he ignites in her, can she settle for being less?

Destined to be his…

Diarmuid of Clonascra is renowned for his bravery in battle. Only one thing daunts him: the prospect of taking a wife. The safest course would be to keep his distance from Aednat, the bold, headstrong healer who’s far too tempting for his peace of mind. But his overking orders him to protect her from a group of craven warriors intent on kidnapping her to steal her power.

What starts as duty for Diarmuid quickly transforms into something more. Aednat’s power might be at risk, but so is his closed-off heart.

inevitable destination of love.

Introducing Beatrice Bordel

Age: one and twenty
Gender: female
Birthplace: England
Profession: noblewoman
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Please provide a
physical description of yourself.
I am considered petite, especially when I stand next to Sir
Raynor Le Roux. I have straight hair that falls to my waist, a rich brown in
color, and my brown eyes are mixed with amber. My skin is porcelain, and I have
a dimple in my right cheek.
Please tell us a
little about yourself.
I am quite practical in nature. We have little coin, and
I’ve never known any luxuries. I enjoy gardening and sewing and cook better
than most. I play the lute and compose my own songs. I have been afraid of
horses my entire life because when I was young and riding with my father, we
were thrown. I survived the fall, but my father died soon after. I’ve grown up
in isolation, with my mother and grandfather as my only companions. Grandfather
says I’m most stubborn.
Who is the significant
other in your life?
I have fallen in love with the most dashing knight in all of
England, Sir Raynor Le Roux. Unfortunately, I told Sir Raynor a small, white
lie in order to protect myself. If he finds out the truth, I shudder to think
what might occur between us.
Do you have children?
More than anything, I long to be married and have children.
We are poor, though, and Grandfather cannot afford the bridal price. I fear I
will never know the touch of a man nor carry a babe in my belly.
If someone from your past
showed up, who would you most want it to be, and why?
If my father could once again enter my life, I would be the
happiest woman in England. He died in a riding accident when I was young. I can
still remember how we would race on his horse around the meadow, the colors
flying by, and the wind in my hair. I loved Father more than anyone in the
world and miss him every day.
What is your biggest personal
flaw?
My biggest flaw is that I am a liar. I never was before, but
suddenly I find I have lied to my landlord, to the man I love, and to the man I
hope will offer me refuge in his castle. Lying is a grievous sin, and I can
only hope that God will forgive me.
What would you like
people who hear your story to know?
I did receive my happily ever after with Raynor, thanks to
Alexa Aston. I would tell others that they must be strong and truthful,
especially with those they love.

Genre Medieval Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Royal herald, Sir Talon Quereste could never love an overly adventurous, impulsive, argumentative woman of dubious background who threatens everything he values. Lady Larkin Rosham can only despise a man who would deny her identity and steal her heritage. So why has fate thrown them together to solve the mysteries of the heart?

Introducing Lady Larkin Rosham aka Liar Larkin

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever! We’re happy to have you here today.
Name: Lady Larkin Rosham aka Liar Larkin
Age:  Twenty three
Gender:  Female
Birthplace:  Rosham Castle, on the coast of Northumbria
Profession:  Carter
Describe your body and build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars.
I am of medium height with a slim build. As for the rest, Sir Talon Quereste describes me this way: “She possessed the most beautiful face he’d ever seen. A delicate nose flared in a perfect oval framed with fiery red tresses. Long, dark lashes fluttered over bright, exotically tilted blue eyes. A berry-red mouth formed an O. Ivory satin skin pinked over high cheekbones.
Who is the significant other in your life?
I was married by proxy to the Earl of Hawksedge, Sir Talon’s father, but murder prevented me from every truly becoming the Earl’s wife. Now that I’ve met the son, I can honestly say he fascinates me. However, I have my doubts that he is truly the man for me.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a fairly simple woman, thrust into extraordinary circumstances when my family was murdered by the man I was to marry. I suffered from what is now called hysterical muteness for seven years. When I finally regained my voice no one would believe me when I told them I was Lady Larkin Rosham, Countess Hawksedge. Instead they proclaimed me Liar Larkin for telling a truth that the murdering Earl of Hawksedge did not want to hear.
If we could only hear your voice (but not see you) what characteristic would identify you?
There was a time when you would not have been able to hear my voice. Now, I would say that my defining characteristic would be clarity. My voice is a very clear alto and quite soothing when I am not compelled to shout.
Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly? 
I’ve been living hand to mouth, since I left the abbey where I took shelter during my mute years. The abbess was kind enough to help me find a hut to call home and gave me a cart and horse to use in making a living by running errands for the folk of Hawkingsedge.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
That I may never be able to convince anyone of the truth that I am Lady Larkin Rosham.
What is your breaking point?
Betrayal. The betrayal of men has caused me no end of pain and anguish, first my proxy-husband, then his son who claimed to believe me then thought me capable of murder.
What would you like to tell your writer?
You should have made Talon believe me sooner. We would not have suffered so much, if you’d given him just a smidgen more faith in me?
