England 1193
Civil war threatens as battle-scarred knight Henry de Grey returns from the Crusades. King Richard languishes in captivity, a prisoner of the Holy Roman Emperor. Traitors to the crown pit Henry and his friends against dangerous and unknown enemies.

Loyalties will be tested, families torn apart. Friend or foe? It is hard to tell one from the other.

The king’s brother John and his allies plot to usurp Richard’s throne. With the knights Sir Stephan and Sir Robin, Henry fights for king and country. But he must keep his feelings for Sir Stephan l’Aigle secret. Sure as arrow or sword, their forbidden love could destroy him.

War, political intrigue and passion… heroes… friends and lovers… and the seeds for a new Robin Hood legend await you…

About the Author

Charlene Newcomb. Char. That's me. Historical fiction and contemporary mainstream drama have me under their spell these days, but it wasn't always that way. When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut. I ended up with a degree in U.S. History - math and physics were not my friends. I fulfilled my desire to walk on the moon and travel to distant planets by writing about adventures in space. And the SciFi stories I've published have spies, which I attribute to my 5-year career as a communications technician/voice language analyst in the U.S. Navy. All of these influences carry over into my mainstream and historical fiction. My family saga, Keeping the Family Peace, centers on the lives of a Navy family in the last part of the 20th century. I have the seeds for a Revolutionary War story germinating on my hard drive. (That degree in U.S. History is going to come in handy.) My current project follows 12th century soldiers through the ordeals of the Third Crusade. Sometime soon, I hope to turn my eyes outward once more and write about galaxies far far away. Librarian by day. Mom to 3 grown, amazing children. I live in Kansas. Yes, Toto. Kansas. Welcome to my worlds.
