Alexa Aston/Lauren Linwood
Timeless Romance

Alexa Aston’s historical romances use history as a backdrop to place her characters in extraordinary circumstances, where their intense desire for one another grows into the treasured gift of love.

She is the author of The Knights of Honor, a medieval romance series that takes place in 14th century England during the reign of Edward III and centers on the de Montfort family. Each romance focuses on the code of chivalry that bound knights of this era.

A native Texan, Alexa lives with her husband in a Dallas suburb, where she eats her fair share of dark chocolate and plots out stories while she walks every morning. She enjoys reading, watching movies, and can’t get enough of Fixer Upper or Game of Thrones. Alexa also writes romantic suspense, western historical, and standalone medieval novels as Lauren Linwood.

   Two outcasts come together . . . and find the gift of love . . .

1387 A.D. - As a royal guardsmen to King Richard II, Sir Hal de Montfort places duty above all else. When a royal rebellion threatens the king’s power, Hal is caught up in a political game and winds up losing everything dear to him. Broken in spirit and stripped of all knightly possessions, he begins the long journey to Kinwick, his parents’ home.

Because Lady Elinor Swan wasn’t the expected male heir, her unforgiving father exiles her from Whitley after her mother dies in childbirth. Elinor is taken in by the estate’s falconer and spends years training to be a falconer herself. She rescues Hal when he is injured by highwaymen. As he heals physically and she teaches him about working with raptors, Hal regains his confidence and becomes a better man than the charming, lighthearted knight of the royal court he’d once been.

Will Elinor learn how to fit into a world she’s never been a part of-especially after she fears she will be blamed for the death of a noblewoman who bore her a grudge?

Join Hal and Elinor as they learn about each other and what counts most in life.

Since Kindle Worlds closed July 17 and novellas in it will no longer be available on Amazon, I’m happy to announce my Kindle World novella RISE OF DE WOLFE has now been published by Wolfbane Publishing, an imprint of Kathryn Le Veque Novels. It links to her Connected World of De Wolfe Pack and unites one of her de Wolfes beauties with one of my de Montfort heroes. Unlike Kindle Worlds, this novella isn’t limited to US readers and is now available internationally, as well as eligible to be read free in Kindle Unlimited.
