Snippet from A Knight In Rusted Armor

Allys looked over her shoulder at her maid. Fanny wrinkled her nose at Paul’s back and mumbled to herself as she spread out the food. Allys smiled apologetically at her, then concentrated her efforts on keeping the amorous Frenchman within Fanny’s sight.

Paul seemed to regard Fanny simply a servant Allys had brought along to work and not as any form of protection against his advances. Allys found herself pushing away his hands or moving out of his reach on more than one occasion.

“Oh, look,” she said as she hurried away from him. “Fanny has readied our lunch.” She sat on the cool grass among the dishes Fanny had set out. There was a small roasted hen, two thin loaves of bread, a round of cheese, and a basket of fruit.

Allys Stone would risk repute as a ruined woman to gain control of her life. Thorin Svenson would battle the most skilled knights in the realm to win her. Theirs is a love story of fairy tales and wild passion, a battle of wills as well as brawn.

Allys wants to choose her own husband, one who loves life and laughter as much as she does. One who considers her a partner instead of a possession. She has never had any choice but to live by her father’s decisions, and now he’s offering her as grand prize in a tournament.

Thorin must win the hand of a nobleman’s daughter to regain the wealth and position of his family. Consumed by guilt, he will risk his very life to win. Not even her attempts to sabotage his victory will get in his way.
