Behind the story…

Many years have passed since I’d considered writing a medieval setting, but I wanted to challenge myself. The way I got inspired was to look through the travel book I used for my trip to Ireland in 2014. Although the location wasn’t a place we visited, I was intrigued to learn about a motte-and-bailey wooden castle built on a strategic river location that was later rebuilt in stone as Kilkenny Castle. That kick-started the story wheels. Ireland is a country that has seen its share of political strife, and I picked a time when the Norman influence was relatively new. So I was introduced to Richard de Clare, Count Striguli of Normandy, France aka Strongbow, a Norman leader who came to Ireland as an ally to a failing king, bringing troops to bolster the king’s fighting strength, and ended up marrying his way into a kingship. I’d found my setting and the political climate of a people serving non-native born rulers.

Tagline: Will opposing political beliefs and family loyalty keep the lovers apart?

BLURB: Weaver Thordia Ulfsdottir can no longer wait for her brother to request payment for the sword he crafted—the money is needed for food. In Castle Kilburren, she demands an audience with the Earl but is thwarted by a tipsy knight. Rory MacGuignard, captain of the castle guard, flirts, thinking she’s come to provide entertainment and he’s enjoyed a few kisses from traveling minstrels before. Realizing his mistake, Rory arranges a temporary job for this poor but proud woman he’s offended. Time spent in his company softens Thordia’s opinion. When opposing political beliefs and family loyalty rip them apart, Thordia despairs of finding a way back to Rory’s side
