Christmas Rose

(The fifth book in the Dark Redeemer series)
A Novella by

King John’s illegitimate daughter, Lady Asta has chosen the day before Christmas to run away from the man she was pledged to marry when she was twelve-years-old. Instead of a bride, Asta has been held prisoner in a tower cell by Lord Althfael for seven years with no hope of rescue. Her one chance at liberty happens every Christmastide when she is permitted to wander the park alone. Until now, she has lacked the courage to take advantage of the opportunity to escape.

King John’s trusted emissary, Captain Galinn Strongbow arrives at the castle on a final mission before quitting the diplomatic corps to seek adventure. He has the tedious task of addressing Lord Althfael’s complaints about his young wife, but when he asks to speak with Lady Asta, he is rudely sent away. His luck worsens when riding through the wood, Galinn comes upon a young woman with an injured ankle and offers the girl his assistance—a good deed that changes him forever.
