Sample of One Knight’s Return

One Knight's Return, #2 of the Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixThe Rogues & Angels series of medieval romances continues with the tale of Quinn’s return home to Sayerne.

Knight and crusader Quinn de Sayerne vowed never to return home while his villainous father drew breath. Twenty years after his departure, he is notified of his father’s death and summoned by his liege lord to claim his family holding. But his overlord has a stipulation: Quinn must wed Melissande, the beauteous heiress of neighboring Annossy. Quinn hoped to make a match based on more than mutual animosity, but he is resolved to win the heart of his lady wife, at any cost.

Melissande cannot believe that her liege lord has not only compelled her to break an old betrothal but wed her to a ruffian—and granted the seal of Annossy to him, despite her expertise. It is the dream of Quinn’s father brought to fruition, for the holdings will be merged just as he long schemed. But her overlord cannot be defied and she finds herself the chattel of this rough knight, despite her every protest.

Can Quinn win his lady’s reluctant heart? Or is he doomed to lose Melissande forever when her betrothed returns?

An earlier version of this story was published as My Lady’s Champion. What’s different? Ha. Pretty much everything – except Quinn, who I still adore. 🙂 The book has been completely revised, and there are new scenes linking the company of Rogues & Angels to the story. Tulley has a niece now, too.

Coming April 23, 2019.

Updated Bride Quest Family Tree

Crevy-sur-Seine Family Tree Logo for the Bride Quest series of medieval Scottish romances by Claire DelacroixAs I was creating a spreadsheet of characters, names, and places this week, I discovered a mistake in the family tree for Crevy-sur-Seine.

While Kim was fixing that, I had her add the children that have already been born, since they weren’t listed yet. This won’t be all of the kids—I expect Bayard and Esmeraude had more than one child—but it’s what we know so far.

All of the family trees for my books are free downloads in my online store. If you downloaded this one before, you should have received an email that there’s an update available. Either way, you can download the updated family tree right here.
