Overview

Constance had given him up. Gabriel, the one man who could make her smile, who could bring joy to her world, was gone. She deliberately drove him away. She gave in to her parents' wishes and agreed to marry Barnard, a much older neighbor, to solidify her family's borders.

A handfasting, two failed attempts at having children, and she never even got that ring.

Six years later, bandits are invading the realm while Barnard is too occupied with other women to lift a finger. To make matters worse, Gabriel returns home from the Crusades, his honor and strength a bitter reminder of all she has lost. Watching the single maidens vie for his affection is almost more than she can bear.

When Barnard turns violent, Constance is forced to flee for her life. Her plight sends Gabriel straight toward the hangman's noose!

All proceeds from sales of Lisa Shea's medieval novels benefit battered women's shelters.

Lisa has written 12 medieval novels. Each is a standalone story and can be read in any order. Each has its own flavor and atmosphere - each is set in a different part of England and showcases the natural beauty of its region. A Sense of Duty is set in the North Sunderland area, on the northeastern coastline. The cover photo shows that beautiful coast. All of Lisa's books are teen-friendly with no graphic violence or intimacy.

A Sense of Duty is a poignant tale of lost love and second chances, in the style of Jane Austen's Persuasion.

Meet the Author

Lisa Shea is a fervent fan of honor, loyalty, and chivalry. She brings to life worlds where men and women stand shoulder to shoulder, steady in their desire to make the world a better place for all.

She has belonged to the Society for Creative Anachronisms (SCA) for many years, researching the beauty of medieval music, dance, and literature.

Lisa has been to England many times, climbing into ancient barrows, delving into castles, and finding every way possible to bring the vibrancy and power of this gorgeous landscape to life.

Lisa has written twelve medieval romance novels, three modern-day cozy murder mystery romance novels, three sci-fi romance stories, and a dystopian journey story. She has also published 69 non-fiction books.
