1272 A.D. - Recovering from a great tragedy that had befallen his family, Scott de Wolfe, eldest son of William de Wolfe and Jordan Scott, has become a career knight with no feeling, no compassion. As a premier knight for Henry III, Scott has been tasked with the management of the massive fortress of Castle Canaan after the death of the castle's commander. Although it seems like a simple enough task, little does Scott know that the moment he enters this fortress is the moment his life will change... forever.
Lady Avrielle du Rennic is reeling over the death of her husband, and she blames de Wolfe for it. Fed by grief, she lashes out at the big knight who has come to take her husband's place and, eventually, take the fortress. Scott has no patience for the woman in mourning, but he stops short of punishing her because she is the mother to three small children.
When Scott happens to save one of her children from certain doom, a path of healing and understanding begin for them both. But when the king intervenes to take Avrielle and her children away, Scott must fight for what has become precious to him. He cannot stand to lose another family.

Medieval England’s most elite training guild.
The Blackchurch Guild is an elite knight training school. Men, and even women, are accepted into the program if they prove themselves worthy. Different from most training arenas in England, candidates don’t have to be from wealthy families. Blackchurch isn’t about politics or prestige. It’s about training the most elite warriors in the world, men and women who go on to serve kings, defeat enemies, and forge nations. They are the best of the best, warriors of the highest order. Their motto is:
Numquam dedite. Never surrender.
The greatest trainer of all is a man they call The Leviathan…
Enormous, with a Scots father and a Greek mother, Tay Munro is the stuff gods are made of. He is also the meanest, biggest, nastiest trainer of men at Blackchurch. He speaks several languages and is brilliant in anything he does. Most importantly, he is a firm believer that women should not be warriors and he does his best to wash out the females he is assigned to train.
Enter Athdara de Ghent.
Already a warrior when she comes to Blackchurch, they call her The Valkyrie. Beautiful and mysterious, Tay is attracted to her from the start but that does not stop his attempts to break her. When he realizes how strong she is, he becomes intrigued. Athdara is a warrior from the Teutonic region, but there is a darkness about her.
There is also a vulnerability.
Tay, the resister of women, begins to fall for the woman he cannot break. When her real reasons for coming to Blackchurch are revealed, Tay realizes she’s not there simply to learn the ways of the Blackchurch Guild.
Athdara’s reasons are much deeper even than that.
Join The Leviathan and his Valkyrie in a blood feud that has followed Athdara all the way to the wilds of Devon. Because Blackchurch is a trainer of men, they are forbidden to take sides in any given conflict that comes to their doors. They’re not protectors, but trainers and teachers.
Will Tay choose his oath to The Blackchurch Guild over the woman he loves?

Ghost stories have never been so fun – or so romantic! It’s a Halloween Treat from Dragonblade authors and friends!
1260 A.D. - Dogged by sinister rumors courtesy of a jealous older brother, Gage de Reyne becomes a mercenary known as the North Wind – destructive, powerful, and cold as ice. But a chance meeting with a childhood friend Lady Wynter de Thorington brings about a spark that could melt the glacier he’s become.
Or it could burn down his entire world.
Wynter knew Gage as a child and, truth be told, she had quite a fondness for the big, silent, powerful younger sibling of a petty but powerful older brother. She’s heard the rumors, how Gage was driven out because he’d tried to steal his brother’s inheritance, but she simply can’t believe it was true. The Gage she knew was, above all, an honorable lad.
An honorable lad who grew up into an honorable, tremendously skilled knight.
When Gage and Wynter’s reacquaintance goes from a spark to a roaring blaze, they make a decision that will change their lives forever. Now, Gage is accused of coercing the heiress to the powerful de Thorington fortune into marriage, fortune and power that easily rivals his brother’s. Because of this, it appears that all of the rumors have been true – but rumors can be deceiving.
In this case, Gage is far more noble than anyone gives him credit for.
Join Gage and Wynter on an impossible and thrilling adventure of battle, passion, and the quest to bring the truth to light for a man who has been very badly slandered. In the end, it’s not the rumors or his prowess on the battlefield that define Gage de Reyne.
It’s the size of his heart.
Wynter's cold knight is anything but cold...
The de Reyne Domination Series
Guardian of Darkness
A Cold Wynter's Knight
The Fallen One (part of the Dragonblade series)
Note: The House of de Reyne is an older, powerful family, pre-dating the Normans. It is said their origins lie in the Visgoths, their rise to power sometime during the Age of Darkness.
But all is not as it seems.
Will hidden secrets destroy everything?
1195 A.D. - Sir Galen Burleson (from Guardian of Darkness) has a love ‘em and leave ‘em reputation. Enormous and powerful, he is the captain of the army at Hexham Castle. Galen is in control of his life and his future until his dying father, tired of his son's roving ways, demands he marry. But Galen isn’t allowed a choice – his father already has a wealthy bride in mind: Lady Lorica de la Beauvriere, the sole heiress of the St. Nicholas Court Castle fortune.
Aside from thinking that his father is mad, Galen has no intention of pursuing a woman who, by all accounts, is much-pursued already. He doesn’t need, or want, the competition. St. Nicholas Court is a powerful castle with old Norman money but Galen would prefer to chase women of his own choosing. However, his father finally confesses his reasons for the St. Nicholas Court heiress choice – the Burleson wealth, once substantial old Saxon wealth, is gone. But the reason why it is gone shocks Galen to the bone.
Now, he has no choice but to pursue the wealthiest unmarried woman he knows – Lady Lorica.
Lorica de la Beauvriere isn’t an ordinary lady. Highly educated and highly trained in a variety of feminine and non-feminine pursuits, she’s the smartest person in the room when suitors come to call. Her wit is biting, her manner brusque and superior, and Galen walks into a deluge of resistance and insults right from the start.
But that only serves to intrigue him.
And with that, a very unconventional love story is born.
Join Galen and Lorica on an adventure of a lifetime, where all is not as it seems, where dark secrets can crush, but also where love can repair the damage and divide. When Galen is called to battle and a young life is cut short, it’s Lorica who finally understands what it is to love and be loved.
And Galen who decides that Lorica is the only woman for him.
(Note: this book is tied to Guardian of Darkness and all three de Reyne brothers make an appearance)
Will de Wolfe honor stand the test? Or will true love crush a man of good character?
Ronan de Wolfe, the mild-mannered but powerful son of James de Wolfe, married on a whim against the advice of his father and grandfather. He married into the powerful Northumberland de Grey family, a family that rivals the House of de Wolfe in both strength and wealth. Coerced by a cunning de Grey father, Ronan found himself married before he knew what happened.
The years pass. Ronan is married and miserable. His wife has lovers, shaming both houses. Children are born, but they are not Ronan’s. With some measure of peace on the England/Scotland borders, Ronan amuses himself in local tournaments to get away from his horrible home life. Along with his best friend, they enjoy celebrity status of the great tournament champions, but when his friend is mortally wounded and asks Ronan to take care of his pregnant wife, the situation changes drastically.
Ronan meets the woman he should have married.
Isabeth de Brito is a beautiful woman from a minor noble family. Pregnant with her dead husband’s child, she and Ronan form a strong friendship as he tends to her every need, but in Ronan’s case, it is much more. Friendship turns to love. When Ronan’s petty, foolish wife realizes Ronan is paying attention to another woman, innocent as it is, the claws come out. Her powerful family can ruin Isabeth and her family – permanently.
When Isabeth’s father is forced into finding Isabeth another husband, Ronan can only stand by and watch the woman he loves as she is courted by another man.
Will there be a happily ever after for Ronan and Isabeth? Or will Ronan have to watch his love marry another?
It’s another wild ride for de Wolfe Pack Generations.
The Lion Cubs are about to take charge!
Richard “Roi” de Lohr is the second son of Richard the Lionheart’s champion, Christopher de Lohr. Roi was raised in the finest homes and with the finest training. Emerging as a powerful and intelligent knight, he married the woman he wanted and enjoyed the life of prestige he had earned. When his wife gave birth to a son, Roi’s life was complete.
Until tragedy struck.
When Roi’s wife dies in childbirth with their second child, he is devastated. But he’s a de Lohr and de Lohrs don’t crumble. He raises his son alone, proud that the lad promises to take his place among the great de Lohrs. He even arranges a marriage for his son with the daughter of a prestigious lord, an heiress of great wealth. Everything is going as planned.
But tragedy strikes again. Roi’s son is killed in a freak accident, leaving Roi shattered beyond repair. The prestigious lord, however, has no sympathy and demands that Roi fulfill the marriage contract or risk losing a strong alliance. With Roi’s son gone, that means Roi, a widower, must marry the young heiress he’s never even met.
Lady Diara le Bec is that heiress.
From one of the finest families in England, that prestige masked a problem - naturally vivacious and charming, Diara has earned herself a scandalous reputation that Roi wasn’t told about. He’s rather reserved by nature, serious and deliberate, and when he finds himself married to a woman who can light up an entire room with simply her smile, he’s taken aback. There are whispers of Diara’s flirtations and the men she has conquered. Roi suspects he has gotten himself into a miserable marriage. But that soon changes as he comes to know the lightning bolt known as Diara. Deedee.
And so begins a love story for the ages.
Treachery and deceit, it seems, aim directly for Roi and Diara as their relationship deepens. Join them as they navigate the turbulent waters of a romance that was never supposed to happen… and a joy that they could have never dreamt of.
Lion of Twilight is part of the de Lohr Dynasty.
But he pays a price.
Lista de la Mere is a young woman of beauty, sense, and education. Unfortunately, her mother and her aunt don’t have the same sensibilities. Lista is an heiress, and a very wealthy one, and if her conniving, alcoholic mother and her sly, drug-addicted aunt have anything to say about it, she’s going to marry the man that can provide them with unlimited coinage to feed their habits – and put them back on top of the social hierarchy.
Lista’s mother was a friend of Kellington Coleby de Velt, Julian’s mother, long ago. They pitch Lista to Kellington as a wife for Julian and although Julian has no intention of marrying any time soon, he’s rather intrigued with the lovely, bright young woman who is so capable of drawing him out of his shell.
But Lista’s mother and aunt don’t stop there. It’s their intention to have a bidding war, the prize being Lista, and they pitch Lista to another knight, a man who is friendly until he feels Julian has wronged him. Julian, who is usually shy and quiet, must call forth the inner devil that his father managed to tame so ably to protect what is his.
Now, it’s Julian’s time to rise.
Join introverted, powerful Julian and sweet, intelligent Lista as they battle to save a love that too many people are trying to destroy.
It’s peace, love, chaos and madness in Medieval England!

And a love they could not ignore.
1200 A.D. - After decades of warring between the Lairds of Kerr and Prudhoe Castle in Northumbria, a tentative peace is reached.
Lady Carington Kerr is sent to Prudhoe as a hostage to ensure her father’s good behavior, and a more reluctant hostage there never was. Small and dark, with emerald eyes and a luscious figure, she is as gorgeous as she is fiery.
Enter Sir Creed de Reyne; a gentle giant of a man, he is, by nature, calm and wise. He is the ice to Carington’s fire. As Carington resists the attempts to keep her in her English prison, Creed is placed in charge of the captive as both jailer and protector. But Creed is also as reluctant a protector as she is a hostage; six months prior, he had been given the important assignment of escorting Isabella of Angoulệme from France to England as the bride of King John. Isabella, a woman-child of twelve years, was smitten with Creed from the start. When he spurned her advances, she fabricated a story of Creed’s indiscretions against her and brought the king’s wrath upon him. Creed fled to Prudhoe and straight into another assignment guarding a firebrand of a young woman.
Creed soon discovers that Carington is far different from the petty child who would become queen and against both his judgment and his wishes, he falls for the Scots lass. Suffering through tragedy and triumph, Creed and Carington have a love that only strengthens with each passing moment. Even when Creed is forced to flee for his life and leave Carington behind, their only thoughts are of being together again.
With Isabella and King John closing in, Creed and Carington must fight for their very survival as two countries and a kingdom seek to separate them.
