Happy New Year!
I hope the holiday season and the dawn of 2017 have left you ready for a wonderful new year.
For me, I’m looking forward to the publication of RUMORS AT COURT in May, 2017. As with the two other Royal Wedding Stories, this one incorporates real historical figures as characters, in this case two of King Edward III’s younger sons, John, Duke of Lancaster, and Edmund, later Duke of York. The brothers married sisters, heirs to the throne of Castile (Spain).
Valerie, the heroine of the book, is a widow, serving the Castilian queen in exile. Gilbert, the hero, is in the service of John of Gaunt, who styles himself the king of Castile. Here’s a peek at their story, as teased in the book’s back cover copy:
While all three Royal Weddings stories stand alone, Sir Gilbert was a secondary character in WHISPERS AT COURT, so if you want to catch up, that book and SECRETS AT COURT, the first, are still available.
To be sure you know when the book is out, please sign up for my newsletter (left). If you want to hear about my doings more frequently, join me on my Facebook page, www.facebook.com/BlytheGifford
Here’s to all the best for 2017,
