Finally, at last, and most happily, the “clean read” rewrite of my 1994 Bantam Books bestseller, WARRIOR BRIDE, is ready to return to the world of readers with a new, beautiful cover. I don’t have to tell you I’m thrilled, but…I can’t help myself. When I sat down to rewrite the story in 2012, I expected it would be a fairly easy undertaking. However, in the 20 years since the book first released, I’ve learned quite a bit about the craft of writing that I didn’t know back then. As I worked my way through the rewrite, I groaned and cringed, especially over all the head hopping between characters which required more than the light editing anticipated. Though frequent changes in point of view were much more acceptable in the nineties, it makes for a bumpy read today. I hope you’ll take a look at LADY AT ARMS, my first published work and first rewrite, available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iBooks Store. Coming soon to Kobo Books.
HE WAS THE VILEST OF MEN
Lizanne Balmaine has spent years honing her skills at arms, determined she will never again be at the mercy of any man. When she comes face to face with the one who stole her future, she seizes the opportunity to exact revenge. Soon he is her prisoner, at her mercy. But something is different about him, something that makes her question her purpose. Is it possible a man can be so changed? More, can she right the wrong that could lay ruin to her family?
SHE WAS A QUESTION NEVER BEFORE ASKED OF HIM
Ranulf Wardieu does not seek a bride, nor a settling of scores when his mission for the king places him in the path of a beguiling, raven-haired maiden. But fascination turns to fury when she imprisons him. Accused of wrongdoing, the nature of which she refuses to reveal, he discovers the lady is as skilled at wielding a sword as she is at verbal sparring. When he bests her at her game and his jailer becomes his captive, he is determined to learn what wrong he has done her. However, as they engage in a battle of wits and wills and he glimpses her woman’s heart, he discovers Lizanne is a question never before asked of him—one his own jaded heart refuses to answer.
