LOVELY NEW BOOK COVER


A Twelfth Night Tale



Blurb

A fortnight ago she left him.

Marcus of Windom stood alone in an empty castle without Lady Liana by his side. The frigid winds brought forth by the Yule Season pressed upon him. He pulled the parchment from whence he carried it and read her chilling parting words once again. I can no longer live as your lady-wife… If ever she returned would her sensual warmth be enough to melt the ice she had caused to form around his broken heart?

About this little tale...

The publication of A Medieval Yule was a surprise, as I hadn't planned to submit it.  This short is set in the 12th century, and is  from the hero's point of view. It was originally created as a gift for  family. 

When I began research on all things medieval history for my  SFR/Time Travel books,  The Quantum Portal Series, I also wrote this one. Unlike the series, this isn't SFR. It is purely a historical romance.  A few parts have made it onto my websites in the past. But it has now been revised and updated for publication.

The cover artist is the talented Nika Dixon. I think this cover is beyond gorgeous! This book is part of the Red Rose Publishing 12 Days of Christmas stories. RRP is offering a Kindle Fire as a giveaway for one lucky buyer.

Release date -- Monday December 19, 2011!

Amber -- Thanks! I agree it is one pretty cover!

Diane -- Thank you!! I was so pleased with this cover art. I Did a happy dance!

About the cover: It captures the essence of the story so well, from the circlet she wears on her head to the rose colored dress, and the castle in the background too. She is exactly what the hero is thinking about as he rides toward his castle in a freezing winter storm.
