A dangerous place, especially for young, widowed Englishwoman Constance.
Having been left property by her late husband, Constance ventures across the seas to explore what is now hers on the Emerald Isle.
Yet before long she finds herself in mortal danger. Knocked off her horse and taken hostage by the barbarian Niall O'More, she loses her kinsmen and finds herself alone and without protection in a strange land, where many regard her as the enemy.
But there is more to Master O'More than meets the eye, and Constance finds herself, against her better judgement, being drawn into his beguiling ways.
She tries to keep her distance, but fate has them crossing paths at every turn.
And when Constance catches wind of a plot against the life of King Richard II, the pair find themselves drawn together once again...
Fateful Encounter is an enchanting historical romance by a master of the genre.
June Francis was born in Blackpool during the war, but bred in Liverpool. Her father taught her the alphabet from a signwriters' book of lettering, and told her stories from memory; so passing on a love of storytelling. Although she always wanted to write she did not begin until her youngest son started school - greatly encouraged by her husband. She has had many articles published, as well as short stories broadcast, but her first love has always been the historical novel. History has always been a passion with her - due, she says, to an incurable curiosity about the past. Her other interests are walking, cycling and swimming. June Francis has written three other Masquerade Historical Romances; The Bride Price, Beloved Abductor and My Lady Deceiver.
