The Crusader’s Bride

Gaston battled for duty and honor—until Ysmaine tempted him to fight for her love…

When the Templar knight Gaston unexpectedly inherits his family estate, he knows he needs a wife and heir. A marriage of convenience to a widow in need of assistance is a practical solution and the newly-wed pair leave Jerusalem, entrusted with the delivery of a package for the Templars. Away from the life he has known for years, Gaston quickly realizes that little is following his plan—especially his mysterious wife, whose presence awakens an unexpected fire…

Twice widowed, Ysmaine doubts she will ever wed again, let alone have a marriage of merit—until she is charmed by the gruff knight intent upon defending her. Ysmaine weds again, not only by her own choice but to a warrior whose honor she admires. She is determined to show Gaston that marriage has more to offer them both than an heir, but first she must win the trust of the wary man she has impulsively wed…

Neither realize that Gaston has been entrusted with the treasure of the Templars—much less that someone in their small party is intent upon claiming the prize at any cost. In a company of strangers with secrets, can Gaston dare to trust his new bride? Can Ysmaine convince Gaston to confide what he knows? Can they solve the riddle together before the villain’s plan comes to fruition and all is lost?

The Crusader's Bride, book one of the Champions of St. Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire Delacroix, German edition

Gaston kämpfte für Pflicht und Ehre … bis Ysmaine ihn dazu verführte, um ihre Liebe zu kämpfen …

Als der Tempelritter Gaston unerwartet den Besitz seiner Familie erbt, weiß er, dass er eine Frau und einen Erben braucht. Eine Vernunftehe mit einer hilfsbedürftigen Witwe erscheint als eine praktische Lösung. Betraut mit dem Überbringen einer Fracht für die Templer, verlässt das frisch vermählte Paar Jerusalem. Das Leben, wie Gaston es seit seiner Jugend gekannt hat, ist vorüber, und er stellt fest, dass nur noch wenig nach Plan verläuft – besonders, was die Beziehung zu seiner geheimnisvollen neuen Frau angeht, deren Gegenwart ein unerwartetes Feuer in ihm schürt …

Zweifach verwitwet, zweifelt Ysmaine daran, dass sie je wieder eine Ehe eingehen wird, schon gar keine, die ihr zum Vorteil gereicht – bis der schroffe Streiter, der sich als ihr Retter entpuppt, ihr Herz erobert. Sie ist entschlossen, Gaston zu beweisen, dass eine Ehe für sie beide mehr bereithält als einen Erben, aber zuerst muss sie das Vertrauen des Mannes gewinnen, den sie so impulsiv geheiratet hat …

Keiner von beiden weiß, dass Gaston ein kostbarer Schatz des Templerordens anvertraut wurde – und dass jemand in ihrer Reisegruppe diese Beute um jeden Preis für sich haben will. Kann Gaston, umgeben von Fremden, es wagen, seiner neuen Frau zu vertrauen? Kann Ysmaine ihn davon überzeugen, ihr anzuvertrauen, was er weiß? Können sie das Rätsel gemeinsam lösen, bevor der Schurke seine Pläne in die Tat umsetzt und alles verloren ist?


Des Kreuzfahrers Braut ist auch als Hörbuch in englischer Sprache erhältlich.
