Overview

Lord Robert, Norman ruler of the most north-easterly region of England, spares the life of Emma, the pregnant widow of an Anglo-Saxon rebel. When his wife dies in childbirth, he asks Emma to become nurse to his child at Danburgh Castle.

On arrival at the castle, Emma discovers that the widowed Lord Robert is already promised to Fiona, the daughter of a Scottish thane. This arrangement does not, however, prevent Lord Robert from making advances towards his nurse. Emma resists Lord Robert’s attentions, but finds she is increasingly having to deny her own desires in order to do so.

A short, sensual Medieval romance.

"A Medieval tale that was fast paced & kept my interest ... wonderfully written and a fun read," (Goodreads review, Oct. '13).

"The plot was tight and kept me engaged, good characterisation meant I truly cared about what was happening," (4 star review, April 2012).

Meet the Author

I write women's fiction and romance. My longer works have been described as quirky romances. I also write shorter fiction in the genre of historical romance.

For tasters of my writing, the short stories, 'Opening Night,' 'The Ramblers,' 'The Family Tree,' 'The Office Party' and 'All The Trimmings,' are available to download for free from Smashwords & their retailers.

Many thanks to all who have reviewed, recommended and rated my books. I really appreciate feedback from readers.

'Brizecombe Hall,' a novelette set in England in the early Victorian period, has been my most popular book to date, receiving great responses from readers who appreciate that it's intended to be an homage to the Brontes.

A review of 'Kitty,' my Regency romance, written in an Austen-esque style, concluded, "Well worth your time for a light and light-hearted read. I recommend it to all who just need a small diversion from life."

'Three Romances,' a collection of the stories, 'Brizecombe Hall,' 'Kitty' and my WWII romance, 'The Hangar Dance,' is available digitally and in print.

The novel, 'Elizabeth Clansham,' is also available in both digital and print formats.

My latest contemporary novella is 'Clifton.' There are more short historical romances in the pipeline...

A short historical romance. It's too short. It needs more embelishment in the body of the story. If it had that it would be great. It's too chopped up. 18+JS.
