NEW BOOK ALERT: It's Time for a Much-Anticipated Book Release


Thank you for joining me, celebrating the release of my newest historical fiction novel! WITH THE HEART OF A LIONESS - A Duchess of Aquitaine Novel has finally arrived and has hit the virtual bookshelves! I still can't quite believe it myself...this is so exciting. 

Set in 12th century Europe, the stand-alone novel is centered around real historical figures such as Alienor d'Aquitain, her husbands King Louis VII of France and King Henry II of England, and their children. Come join, as their story unfolds! Naturally, I fictionalized the story and filled it with page-turning adventures, some danger, and a hint of romance. I hope that you’ll dive into the twisting waters of time in the pages of WITH THE HEART OF A LIONESS.

About the book:

Aliénor has everything to look forward to as the heiress of the wealthy and powerful country of Aquitaine. Like most women of the 12th century, she is raised to marry well, sit motionlessly, and be agreeable. However, unlike any other woman, she is determined to be the only one to dictate what course her life will take. After all, she is the granddaughter of the infamous Duke Guillaume IX, called the Troubadour.

Young Aliénor of Aquitaine baffles and bewilders friends and foes alike when she marries the future King of the Franks, Louis VII, in 1137. She’s called daring, ambitious, and overtly romantic. Aliénor becomes a cold-blooded schemer on the playing field of power, as she’s faced with scandals, trials, and forbidden love. Yet, through it all, she remains worthy of every troubadour’s adoration.

As the Duchess leaves France behind to become the Queen of England, Aliénor faces a whole new slew of enemies. However, she remains a mystery to the men of her time, whether she joins a crusade to the Holy Land or fights her second husband, King Henry II of England, who imprisons her to force her into submission with all her might. And if her enemies dare to join forces? They quickly learn how much power lurks within even a caged lioness!
