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 son 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).

"Fitted the time-frame of the early Norman conquest of England; I wanted to read more."

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. My seven short historical romances are available in one volume, 'Collected Romances.' I am now working on longer-length historical romances. 'The Laird's Right-Hand Lady,' a contemporary romance set in the Scottish Highlands, will soon be available on Smashwords.

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.
