About the book:  

Aveline de Bondeville is on the run. Determined to keep out of the hands of the cruel Raimbaut de Blois she will do whatever it takes to stay alive. And so when she finds herself in the company of Troy de Gysborne she must quickly decide if she can trust him. But can she confess to murder knowing it would mean her certain death?

Troy de Gysborne did the unthinkable; he tore the bonds of brotherhood and left a path of destruction in his wake. And now Troy must face those he betrayed, including the father who long ago renounced him. But to confess to the crime he committed will cost him everything. Including Aveline. But can he remain silent if it means losing the woman he loves?


Aveline’s scream burned her throat; she tasted blood. Eudes staggered forward, his eyes wide. He looked at her as he fell to his knees and then slumped forward. Bright red blood rushed from his wound and pooled on the ground. She looked at Raimbaut.

“This time you shall not escape.”

She picked up her skirts and ran headlong into the forest and did not slow her speed as branches slapped her in the face and tore at her arms. The ground beneath her feet was icy and uneven. She risked a glance over her shoulder and did not stop even though Raimbaut was nowhere to be seen. He may not have been behind her, but it did not mean he was not stalking her.

Sweat trickled down her face and burned her eyes. Her heart pumped, her lungs gasped for air. She came to a skidding stop and looked wildly around. Should she keep running straight, go left or right, or make her way back to Gysborne? She turned in a circle and shoved her hair from her eyes.

A twig snapped behind her. She stilled and held her breath. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw a blur rush by. Was it an animal? Was it Raimbaut?

She ignored the pain in her chest and her sudden need to loosen her bladder. But she could not ignore her trembling. She clutched her arms to her chest. A sour taste flooded her mouth as she did not see how she would be lucky enough a second time to escape from Raimbaut.

  1. Thank you so much for having me as your guest! It's great to be here! I am here to answer any questions. So don't be shy ask away! There is no such thing as a silly question!

  2. Tell me about the best vacation you’ve ever taken.

    1. That's a tough one. Because I used to live in the UK i was always traveling someplace because the UK is so close to everything. I can't pick the best one. However, i really enjoyed my time in Croatia.

  3. I see this book is set in the year 1130. I've often wondered (if it wasn't already obvious to me) why an author chooses a particular year in which to set their story. What was the significance to you, if any, of 1130?

    1. Hi Karen, thanks for stopping by! That's an easy one. This story features the grandson of the hero and heroine from the first book, Of Love and Vengeance - that one took place in 1070. So i had wanted to leave enough time, and a generation, from when the last book ended to when this one started. As far as I know, the next one, Of Love and Honor, will be taking place around 1135. But I'm not sure yet. Do i stsy with yhe grandchildren or go to the great grandchildren!

  4. The book sounds interesting and I like the excerpt.
