Overview

Elianne du Hommet, the sheriff's useless third daughter, is doomed to a life as her father's unpaid unmarried servant. Then a slain nobleman's bastard rides through her gate, threatening to kill her father for incompetence while offering Elianne the chance to know, just once, the joy of a man's touch.

Josce FitzBaldwin intends to destroy the bandits who killed his father and half-sisters. Instead, he finds himself enmeshed in a tangled web of deceit and betrayal where thieves slaughter innocent children but don't empty purses of their gold. The last thing he expects is to beg aid of the sheriff's honest daughter as he secures the vengeance he so craves.

Meet the Author

I was ten before I realized the cosmos played a terrible joke on me. I was in the wrong century! While everyone else studied computers and listened to rock music, I wrote a history assignment in Egyptian hieroglyphics and spent endless hours designing ball gowns for Marie Antoinette. I taught myself what every true lady must know: how to sew a fine seam (by hand), to embroider skillfully, and to play an instrument (piano, and nothing later than Beethoven, thank you). I did my best to fit in with the rest of modern society, running two property management companies and inventing an electric lock, only to realize happiness for me meant historical research. Now, writing is my time machine and words recreate the vitality of eras where I feel more at home. Not only do I experience the drama of their time, but I do so with indoor plumbing. Enjoy!

Denise lives with her husband on a soon-to-be farm in Northern Arizona along with various cats, chickens and one dog. You can follow their exploits on her blog: Living with the Other Ed.
