Overview

Desert storm, ‘djinn’ and the riders from Hell ... Saracen, Templar and dark sorcerer ... unholy adventure in an age of holy war!

It is a time of conquest in which the Saxon is almost a slave in his own country, and the Holy Land is sundered by unholy war out of which there can be no winners, no real victors. And for young men like Paul Delgado and Edward of Aethelstan, no place is safe. Their own home is as filled with danger as the battlefields of Palestine, for they are men who love men, in an age when such love is forbidden.

On the very threshold of manhood, Paul is a landless, penniless orphan with no future — unless it is to follow the young Earl of Aethelstan to war. But Edward has no desire to sell his sword and his soul to a blood- soaked Crusade where mercy is rare, cruelty is commonplace, and the dark sorcery of an unknown land might easily swallow a man whole.

To repair the patchwork fortunes of the House of Aethelstan, Edward commits himself to the Crusade ... for love of the young Saxon knight, Paul sails with the eastbound ships, in the company of Normans, Templars, soldiers and squires. Before he returns, he will be a man grown, with an epic story to tell of bloodshed and sorcery, sublime sensuality, and a timeless love. Dust-veiled battlefields and the candlelit bedchambers of Saracen captains are his memories: silk and steel, delight and despair, and the magic and mayhem of a half-forgotten age.

Sensual in character, vast in scope, White Rose of Night is a haunting romance set within a thrilling adventure, with a twist of high fantasy. Back in print, from the acclaimed author of FORTUNES OF WAR and the award-winning historical, THE DECEIVERS.

Meet the Author

A self-confessed science fiction and fantasy devotee, Mel Keegan is known for novels across a wide range of subjects, from the historical to the future action-adventure ... but certainly MK is best known for the NARC series, featuring iconic characters Jarrat and Stone. Mel lives in South Australia with an eccentric family. From 1989 to 2001, GMP Ltd. in the UK issued the Keegan titles, and released eight original novels plus numerous reprints. In 1999, GMP was bought out -- twice! -- and the final owner of the old company was a magazine publisher (Millivres Publishing Group) which had, essentially, no interest in contintuing the old paperback list. In short order the editorial staff was laid off and the writers were set free... You'd be surprised at the writers who were suddenly adrift without anchor or rudder! Keegan, Josh Lanyon, David Patrick Beavers, Chris Hunt, and others. Some of us have clawed our way back and are rebuilding careers which were badly damaged by the demise of GMP. Regrettably, others have vanished. Here's Keegan's current backlist (all titles published via GMP and Alyson, plus those in-the-works with Millivres at the time of the shut-down, plus all titles issued to date by DreamCraft: In GMP and Millivres: ICE, WIND AND FIRE NARC #1: DEATH’S HEAD (abridged) NARC #2 EQUINOX FORTUNES OF WAR STORM TIDE WHITE ROSE OF NIGHT AN EAST WIND BLOWING AQUAMARINE Breakheart (in Swords of the Rainbow, from Alyson) In DreamCraft: HELLGATE #1: The Rabelais Alliance HELLGATE #2: Deep Sky HELLGATE #3: Cry Liberty HELLGATE #4: Probe HELLGATE #5: Flashpoint NARC #1: Death’s Head, complete and unabridged NARC #2: Equinox NARC #3: Scorpio NARC #4: Stopover NARC #5: Aphelion The Vampyre #1: Nocturne The Vampyre #2: Twilight LEGENDS #1: The Winds of Chance Dangerous Moonlight The Deceivers The Swordsman The Lords of Harbendane Mindspace Tiger, Tiger Umbriel (with Jayne DeMarco) Windrage White Rose of Night (reissue) Fortunes of War (reissue) Aquamarine (reissue) Storm Tide (reissue) Novellas: Callisto Switch Breakheart (unabridged) Crimes of Passion Non-fiction and Poetry: The Hellgate Companion The Future According to Keegan Worms in the Big Apple Mel Keegan: 20 Poems During 2009, all titles are being made available in every possible ebook format, as well as paperback and hardcover.
