The Crusader\'s Handfast: Part Two

The Crusader's Handfast: Part Two

(The second book in the Crusader's Handfast series)
A Novella by

A pilgrimage to Jerusalem with her mistress has left the maid Radegunde determined to live every moment to the fullest. She dreads the return to routine and her inevitable marriage to a reliable man, so convinces the warrior Duncan to make merry with her while their respective masters linger in Paris. Dancing and singing are not the sole revels in Radegunde's plans, for she means to taste passion with this man who snared her attention in Venice. Duncan is convinced his own heart is lost forever, but Radegunde's allure cannot be denied. When he surrenders to her seduction, Duncan suggests a handfast, knowing that even this honor is far less than she deserves. Radegunde, however, is not interested in half-measures, and resolves to win Duncan's love, no matter what the cost. Will she succeed in her quest? Or will their paths part forever, and do as much too soon?

In this episode, Radegunde fears Duncan's interest has been dismissed, while Duncan wrestles with his memories of the past and his desire to do what is right for Radegunde. Fate intervenes before he can share the secret he has promised to reveal to Radegunde - but his deeds reveal an unwelcome truth to her. Is Duncan's heart already claimed?

This book is being published in monthly installments, beginning in December 2015 and ending in May 2016. The complete book will be available in print and digital formats in July 2016.
