Raven’s Rise (Swordcross Knights #3)

Claim your heart’s desire

Available in print and digital editions

Lady Angelet has spent her whole life as a pawn, acquiescing to the wishes of others. She’s been a good daughter, a good wife, a good mother, and a good widow. The reward for her obedience is nothing more than a one-way journey to a nunnery. Outmaneuvered by her shrewd father-in-law, Angelet is forced to accept her fate. The knight who is hired to escort her has other plans.

Now known as the undefeated Knight of the Raven, the low-born but charming Sir Rafe has had to fight for everything he’s ever had. When he sees Angelet, he’s more than willing to fight for her too. Rafe makes the soon-to-be cloistered lady a salacious offer: for the duration of the journey, she can spend every night with him, and she doesn’t have to be good at all.

When a deadly pursuer threatens them, Rafe defends Angelet’s life even though it means revealing his dark side. But Rafe isn’t the only one with a secret, and now that she’s sampled the life she’s dreamed of, Angelet is done being a pawn…

Peregrine’s Call (Swordcross Knights #4)

For true love, nothing is impossible.

Available in digital editions

Robin was born poor in a rough, remote part of England. She survived only by disguising herself as a boy and learning to hunt on her own. Then the kindly de Vere family helped her become a proper, polite young woman…almost. Despite the family’s efforts, Robin’s heart is still wild, and when she learns that a valiant knight—one she’s always admired—needs her help, she finds her cause.

There is no other knight in England quite like Octavian de Levant. Born in Africa, raised in the Holy Land, and trained by a military order, he’s a skilled fighter and a constant wanderer. Now, he’s sworn to aid the king in the war for the throne. The last thing he wants on his expedition is the company of the fiery and unpredictable Robin. But she is also the only person who knows how to get him to his destination.

The unlikely pair venture deeper into the deadly landscape of the border between England and Wales, and soon find their uneasy alliance growing into something more passionate. Robin and Octavian can’t give in to those feelings, or they’ll be lost in a maze of broken promises and conflicting loyalties. A path to happiness seems impossible. But for true love, nothing is impossible.
