One of my favorite authors at 99 cents - by Vijaya Schartz

Today, allow me to present one of my favorite authors, Denise Domning. She writes historicals and medieval romance in particular, and I just discovered two of her 99 cents novels. She is a very talented author, an expert on medieval research, and I love her books.

THE WARRIOR'S MAIDEN
by Denise Domning
99 cents at Amazon http://amzn.com/B006M3YJRO

A baron and his daughters are dead, slaughtered on the king's road, when the sheriff should have kept the peace.  Can his ungainly daughter solve the mystery of their deaths before the baron's grieving widow and his bastard son wreak vengeance on her father, the man they hold responsible?

" ... filled with vivid descriptions of the period especially the role of single women as pawns to be used, misused, and discarded as necessary.  Denise ... provides her audience with a darker but fuller picture that those Medieval aficionados who demand total realism will relish."---Harriet Klausner, reviewer

Five out of Five Stars
"I loved this book.... Keep up the fantastic work!"--- a reader

Five out of Five Stars
"An appealing heroine, complex characters, realistic dialogue and story, and a credible romance. This one's got it all. Nicely balanced between the credible realism of the period and the characters who inhabit it. An entertaining read."---L. Rosenthal, a reader
THE WARRIOR'S WIFE
by Denise Domning
99 cents at Amazon: http://amzn.com/B006H6BDRA

In 1214 England, Sir Rafe Godsol sees widow Katherine de Fraisney at his friend's wedding. Rafe decides that he will marry Katherine even though he learns that she is the daughter of the man who killed his sire. He will also soon find out that Katherine has vowed to never marry again after an unhappy first relationship that has left her wary of males and still an innocent.

Her father decides to find a second spouse for Katherine. However, Rafe begins his own courting and she finds his kisses quite enchanting. When her father and his chosen beau for her learn that a Godsol is sniffing around Katherine, they plot to kill Rafe. Poor Katherine now realizes that Rafe wanted her for her money and not out of love, something that the landless knight now knows is not true, but doesn't know how to prove to her.

Though adhering to the unwritten guidelines of the sub-genre, [The Warrior's Wife]is an entertaining [M]edieval romance that sub-genre fans will find enticing. The story line works because the motives of the characters ring true and thus lead to relational conflicts, thirteenth century style. The novel will provide pleasure to readers who enjoy a straightforward historical romance. - Harriet Klausner, reviewer

Denise has more 99 cents books and paperbacks in other genres as well. Check out her author page at Amazon HERE
