Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors!
This week I revealed the cover for the print version of Time Enough to Love, my medieval novel. So of course I want to reveal it today for the Weekend Writing Warriors. It’s another gorgeous cover from my fabulous designer, Danielle Fine.
In my 8 for today, Lady Alyse de Courcy is awaiting the announcement by the king of the man she will be betrothed to. She longs to be married to Thomas, Lord Braeton and hopes to hear the king speak his name.
“What say you then, Sir Geoffrey? Does the lady not speak fair? I vow she will make you a proper wife and a dutiful one as well.”
Alyse turned, until that moment unaware that Geoffrey Longford stood beside her. Chills coursed down her body as the king’s words echoed in her mind and the sensation of falling backward assailed her, as though she rushed away from the tall man at her side even as his figure loomed larger and larger in her sight.
Not Lord Braeton.
Her numbed brain repeated the phrase, trying to comprehend that instead he would be her husband–Geoffrey Longford.
God have mercy on me, for by the look of him, this man will not.
Time Enough to Love is available for pre-order at Amazon.
When Lady Alyse de Courcy is betrothed to Sir Geoffrey Longford, she has no choice but to make the best of a bad bargain. The hulking knight is far from her ideal man, and although he does possess some wit and charm, he is no match for the sinfully sensual man she secretly admires, Thomas, Earl of Braeton, her betrothed’s best friend.
From the first, Sir Geoffrey finds himself smitten by Lady Alyse, and, despite her infatuation with his friend, vows to win her love. When Geoffrey puts his mind to wooing Alyse, he is delighted to find her succumbing to his seduction. But when cruel circumstances separate them, Geoffrey must watch helplessly as Thomas steps in to protect Alyse—and falls in love with her himself.
As the three courtiers accompany Princess Joanna to her wedding in Spain, they run headlong into the Black Plague. With her world plunged into chaos, Alyse struggles with her feelings for both the men she loves. But which love will survive?
