GENRE: Historical Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

A Good Knight’s Kiss is a romantic coming-of-age story.

John’s uncanny cleverness and insight, and his red hair, cause his stepmother to fear him, thinking him a devilish daemon.

He sets off, much to his chagrin, to start his new life as page, squire, and then knight to his uncle-by-marriage. As often happens, he falls in love. But it is with his lord’s daughter, no less.

John is sensitive, astute and fiery, and his conflicting loyalties and desires are what drive him onwards.

When he’s faced with a choice between heeding his father’s decree for a simple life, and his oath to his brother on one hand, and the love of his life on the other, how will he choose? Simplicity or love, honour or happiness?

EXCERPTS:

Excerpt One:

After about a day’s ride, they reached the Earl’s hall. Earl Barringar was aging, and his fourth wife had died recently. Even with his large estate and vast household staff, maintaining his many children was a tasking feat, and he was prone to call upon his ladies themselves to take charge. It was difficult to try and control his unruly children’s behaviour, eleven of which were raucous boys, prone to fistfights. Of all the dozen, he had but one daughter, over-protected by her many brothers. A delicate, dainty, yellow-haired damsel, with eyes of palest blue and translucent skin. She resembled her mother—the Earl’s third wife—greatly, and was her namesake, Jane.

With the recent death, there was no one left to take charge of her upbringing. He did not think he could wed again at his age. Even with his title, no young bride or even widow could be swayed to undertake such a massive task, and he was, frankly, quite tired of being a husband.

His many sons he was sending, one-by-one, to other lords’ service and even to court. But his daughter he feared to send, for her delicacy and childlike demeanour. No, he would have to marry her off, and he summoned his young kinsman, his second wife’s nephew, who was well connected, to give advice. Perhaps he could be swayed to wed her himself?
