Best-selling Medieval Romantic Fiction (Amazon.com (eBook)) is now in print!! "Knight of Her Heart" is the profoundly romantic and passionate journey of Lisette and Rowan. Each is vulnerable and less than perfect, yet worthy of finding happiness. It is a story of repentance and forgiveness, desperation and hope, and one in which loyalty, courage and love triumph over treachery and betrayal. Lady Lisette is so desperate to thwart her guardian's plans, save her life and protect her young sister that she acts against her moral integrity. She commits a sin that plagues her conscience but safeguards her future. Afterwards she is stunned to learn that King Henry V has assigned her a protector. She is hardly worthy of Henry's noble warrior, Lord Rowan. Can she ever gain Rowan's forgiveness for what she has done and win his heart? Lord Rowan, King Henry's hero of Agincourt, is driven by his thirst for justice. He swore an oath to avenge the death of his parents and the last thing he wants is a wife. Yet he must marry Lisette by command of his liege. Believing that he has, at least, gained a biddable bride, he is challenged on every level by a woman who is spirited and independent. Just when he thinks she may be the one to heal the bitterness he carries, he discovers her betrayal. But, does he have the right to judge her when his own past hides a shameful secret?

Dear Reader,Knight of Her Heart is my first foray into writing medieval romances as I write contemporary romances as Alyssa J. Montgomery. I have found, however, that I am reading far more historical romances these days than contemporary, so I guess it was natural that I would start writing historicalromances.Rowan and Lisette lived in my mind for 8 years before I finally managed to juggle work and family and pen their story. I got to know them fairly well and must confess to have fallen just a little in love with Rowan!Rowan is a strong and chivalrous knight but one significant act of vengeance in his youth has plagued his conscience and made him a flawed character. It shaped him. Out of the trauma of his childhood, he's pushed himself in his service to King Henry V in an effort to atone for his wrongdoing.Lisette has to be strong to survive in times where women had few legal rights. She has a great capacity for love and is responsible for keeping her young sister safe. In her youth and innocence, the only thing she can think of to do to save her own life and that of her sister is a terrible misdeed, which she knows is wrong, but doesn't truly understand the serious ramifications of her act until it is way too late. That Rowan can forgive Lisette, is very heroic of him. He needs her love to help him forgive himself and both characters grow through their love.I've loved researching this period of history, and writing villains who are (as one reader commented) "skin-crawlingly heinous"! I hope you enjoy this story and the other two in the trilogy, Knight of Her Dreams (released), and Knight of Her Desire (due for release in 2016).Best wishes,AlyssaAbout the Author:
