Is it too late for second chances when the girl you loved in your youth comes back into your life?
Gerolt de Warenne became guardian to a child-heiress named Cassandry when he was only nineteen-years old. As he watched her grow into a lovely young woman, he found himself falling in love with her, but Cassandry viewed him as an older brother. So, burying his feelings, he gave permission for her to marry another.
Twenty-four years later Gerolt and Cassandry meet again. With the loss of their respective spouses, Gerolt hopes to finally court Cassandry, but she desires to remain a widow. Instead, they agree to a betrothal of their children.
Matters become complicated as their friendship begins to evolve into the romance Gerolt has always wanted. But by the law of the medieval Church, Cassandry and Gerolt can’t marry if their children do. Can they find a way to be together? Or must they sacrifice their future for the love of their children?
Win COURTING CASSANDRY by Joyce DiPastena #medieval #romance #giveaway #newldsfictiongiveaway Click To Tweet
Joyce DiPastena dreamed of green medieval forests while growing up in the dusty copper mining town of Kearny, Arizona. She filled her medieval hunger by reading the books of Thomas B. Costain (where she fell in love with King Henry II of England), and later by attending the University of Arizona where she graduated with a degree in history, specializing in the Middle Ages.
When she’s not writing, Joyce loves to read, play the piano, and spend time with her sister and friends. A highlight of her year is attending the annual Arizona Renaissance Festival. Visit Joyce at www.joyce-dipastena.com/.

May 1915. After tragedy strikes during the Second Battle of Artois, Frenchman Julian Olivier will do anything to get out of the trenches. So when British Intelligence recruits him to spy behind enemy lines, he jumps at the opportunity. Just before he begins, however, he has a chance encounter with a young French woman who leaves his heart marked for the remainder of the war—even if he doesn’t know her name.
Warren Flynn is a Canadian airborne hero, and dogfights with the Germans are all in a day’s work. Second only to his love of flying is his fascination with Claire Donovan, the daughter of an American munitions manufacturer living in Paris. Warren flies Julian into Germany and soon receives orders to post the Allies’ newest operative—an attractive peasant woman named Evette—in Claire’s home.
As a dangerous ring of spies and saboteurs threatens to turn the war against the Allies, Julian discovers goodness in his enemies’ hearts. But even if he survives, will he ever be reunited with the woman whose memory he can’t erase? Will Warren survive the war, and will Evette unearth the infiltrator in her own territory before it’s too late?
A.L. Sowards has always been fascinated by the 1940s. Her novels include a little mystery, a little history, a little romance, and a lot of action, adventure, and suspense. Primarily, she writes to entertain, but also hopes her books will teach readers something new about history or about life. Her novels usually take place during wartime, so there is some violence, but it’s not gory or excessive. She keeps the language and romance family-friendly.
When not reading, A.L. is a busy mom with three young children. She is usually reading a couple books at once and working on multiple writing projects too. Other than that, she says her life is pretty ordinary. She lets the characters in her books have all the adventures. Visit A.L. Sowards at alsowards.com/.

While Bryce thinks he’s in complete control of things, Carrie shows him a new side of life and helps him let go of past heartbreak making him wonder if it’s okay to love again.
When Carrie’s brother is in trouble and needs Bryce’s help, can she let go of her pride and allow Bryce into her life?
