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?

QUICK

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.

Knight of Runes was the first book I published in 2011.
Tell us about your writing space or home office.Do It Write: Where Ruth A Casie writes @RuthACasie #RLFblog #Medievalromance
I’m fortunate. I have two writing spaces. With all my children on their own, I took over my younger daughter’s room and made it my executive office. It has everything I want except I feel a bit isolated.
Last year, I put a library table in the living room and set up my laptop. It’s easier to get to the kitchen.
Anything special about your space?
I get a HUGE cup of tea, put on my writing playlist, and start up the fireplace. I’m in heaven.
What do you love most about that area?
I love my office. I love the red wall paper, the Berber carpet, the bookcases. I love everything about that room. I’ve written some of my best stories there.
I also love my space in the living room. The fireplace most of all.
What would like to change about your home office?
I don’t think I would change much in my office, although I would like to put more bookcases in and organize the room more.
If money was no object, what would your home office look like?
I would make my office look more like a library. I would raise the ceiling and put bookcases up the wall with rolling ladders to get to the top.
What’s the last book about writing that you read?
Verbalize by Damon Suede was the last book about writing that I read.
What do you like to read for relaxation?
I like to read adventure and mystery books in addition to romance.
Do you have an author newsletter?
I have a monthly newsletter that lets my subscribers know what I doing, writing and where I will be. I also highlight other authors whenever I can.

I’m happiest when I’m telling stories either chatting in a group or writing them down. I love to put my hero and heroine in tough situations and dare them to work it out—together, always together. They haven’t disappointed. Oh, they complain but in the end their love and relationships are stronger than ever.
Here are five things you probably don’t know about me.
1. I filled my passport up in one year.
2. I have three series. The Druid Knight stories are a historical time travel series. The Stelton Legacy is historical fantasy about the seven sons of a seventh son. Havenport Romances are stories set in a small coast Rhode Island town. I also write stories in the connected world the Pirates of Britannia.
3. I did a rap to “How Many Trucks Can a Tow Truck Tow If a Tow Truck Could Tow Trucks.”
4. When I cook I dance.
5. My Sudoku book is in the bathroom. I’m not saying anything else about that.
My stories feature strong women and the men who deserve them, endearing flaws and all. Their stories will keep you turning the pages until the end. I hope my stories become your favorite adventures.

The Heir (The King’s Cousins Book 1) by Alexa Aston

Genre medieval romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
The three young children of Adelard de Blays—two sons and a daughter—are separated when their father commits treason against the King of England. Follow each of their stories in The King’s Cousins, a new trilogy by Alexa Aston.
1340 A.D. – After his treasonous father’s execution, Landon de Blays is raised alongside his cousin, the future King Edward III. Landon constantly fights to prove his own loyalty to the crown and becomes England’s youngest knight. Rewarded for bravery in battle, the king gifts Landon with a title and estate, something he’s longed for over the years as much as restoring his family’s good name.
Cassiana Campion raises five brothers and nurses her ill father while managing Briarwood, her family’s estate. When her father succumbs to old battle wounds and she receives news her last surviving brother has been killed in battle, Cassiana has nowhere to turn—until Landon de Blays arrives with a missive naming him the new Earl of Briargate—and Cassie’s bridegroom.
The couple fall in love but are torn apart by circumstances beyond their control before their wedding can take place. Landon can live without an earldom and Briarwood but he can’t conceive of a life without Cassiana. Will Landon unlock the secrets that can bring them back together?
Each book in The King’s Cousins Trilogy is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Series Order:
Book #1: The Pawn
Book #2: The Heir
Book #3: The Bastard
For those who enjoy romance on the high seas, you might enjoy the standalone prequel to The King’s Cousins Trilogy. GOD OF THE SEAS is part of the Pirates of Britannia World and features Godwin de Blays and Melisent Winchester, great-grandparents to Quill, Landon, and Katelyn.
Why did you write this book?
The Heir is the second book in my medieval romance trilogy, The King’s Cousins (which can all be read as standalones).
Landon de Blays, the hero, lost everything when he was a young boy, thanks to his father’s treason. He’s heir to nothing as a mature man. I needed for Landon to prove his loyalty to the king and win back everyone’s respect (and a title, estate, and a spirited heroine, as well).
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy all kinds of romance and thrillers.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
My heart adores Pride and Prejudice’s Elizabeth Bennet!
What are you working on at the moment?
Now that The King’s Cousins is completed, I’m working on a brand-new trilogy. It’s my first time trying my hand at Regency romance!
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Next month, I’ll wrap up The King’s Cousins with Quill’s story—The Bastard. He’s the oldest of the three de Blays’ siblings and has to accomplish the impossible to get his HEA.
