The 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.

One Knight Enchanted is now available at all portals. Come join the adventure of Rogues & Angels!
Cursed to take the form of the wolf by day, Rolfe de Viandin is skeptical that love can save him. All he wants is to return home from crusade by the Yule and even the pleasures of a magical palace cannot console him…until a beautiful and bold maiden arrives at his gates, seeking sanctuary, and Rolfe’s hope is restored.
Hunted in the forest, Annelise de Sayerne has to surrender her desire to wed for love, as the price of entering the only refuge is marriage to its enigmatic lord. She fears he must be a monster, but once she experiences his kindness, Annelise resolves to find love with her new husband—if she can just claim his heart.

Even as Rolfe is beguiled by his bride and Annelise unravels his secrets, a spurned suitor pursues Annelise, determined to claim her legacy at any price. If Rolfe’s curse is not broken, how can he defend his beloved wife from the villain? Will their future be lost before it is truly won—or will Rolfe be convinced of the power of love in time?
An earlier version of this story was published under the title Enchanted.

I’ve been getting organized at Pinterest these past few days, and gathering inspiration for Rogues & Angels. My boards have moved around a bit, since Pinterest now allows them to be nested – instead of each book having its own board, each book is a section within a board dedicated to each series.
Here’s the board for the Champions of St. Euphemia. The board existed before, for the series, but the books were separate. Now each book is in a section of its own. I realized the “series” pins were really for The Crusader’s Bride, so I popped them into that section.
There’s a new board for Rogues & Angels, which is a work in progress (and will be until the series is all written). You can follow it right here.
The Ravensmuir, Kinfairlie and Inverfyre books have been gathered into a single board, to better echo the structure of this new website. Each book has a section of its own and there’s another section for the three keeps themselves, because those details are common to many of the books. Here’s the Ravensmuir, Kinfairlie and Inverfyre board.
I still have my Medieval Eye Candy board, which is a catch-all for images that I find evocative of medieval romance. It’s right here.
I also discovered that I hadn’t turned on the Pinterest button for this website, but it’s on now – it appears when you hover over any of the images, and allows you to pin those images to your board of choice.
