Yvonne, Lady of Cassio, A Mediaeval Nofl

This novel has been a long labour of love and very hard work. I wrote the first version nearly ten years ago and sent it for feedback to The Romantic Novelists’ Association’s New Writers’ Scheme. My reviewer commented that ‘it was a joy to read a novel that has been so well researched’. She also liked the main theme which was very popular in mediaeval literature. (One which I am not revealing because it would spoil the twist in the tale.) The reader, who was anonymous also offered a lot of helpful advice which I applied. Encouraged by the positive comments I rewrote the second version which I put aside for a long time while I wrote other novels. After a lot of thought I decided to work with a constructive online critique group from which I received invaluable help from published and unpublished authors.

In the meantime, Books We Love Ltd., accepted me as a client and has published seven of my romantic historical novels, each of which have strong themes. I am now looking forward to the publication of Yvonne, Lady of Cassio, first as an e-book available on Amazon from the 9th May, 2017 and subsequently as a print book which will also be available on Amazon.

Yvonne, Lady of Cassio

Phew! I worked very hard this morning preparing a form for my medieval novel, Yvonne, Lady of Cassio, to send to my publisher Books We Love Ltd.

Long hours on the laptop or the computer are hard on the back. Yesterday, the tens machine I ordered from Boots the chemist arrived. It’s very powerful with lots of options. One session with it got rid of a nagging pain I’ve suffered from for a couple of weeks. The machine can also be used on feet, arms, legs etc.

I’m now going to buy a pair of Wellington boots which I will probably need on holiday for walks along the beach.

Yesterday, I went to the library and borrowed the following books, which I am looking forward to reading.

Trains and Lovers: The Heart’s Journey by Alexander McCall Smith author of No1 Ladies Detective Agency.

Belgravia by Julian Fellowes author of Downton Abbey.

The Powder of Death by Julian Stockwin, Begins in 1261 in Oxford. The story of one man’s obsession with gunpowder.

After the Rain by Nicola Thorne. 1921, New Zealand.

The Shogun’s Queen by Leslie Downer 1853. Japan teeters on the brink of turmoil. Based on a remarkable true story.

Before I borrowed them, I read the blurb about each novel, and the first paragraphs which I found interesting. I’m looking forward to reading all of them and hoping none of them will disappoint me.

Sunday’s Child is sensual but contains no explicit sex.


5.0 out of 5 starsA Sprightly Regency Romance

By Lindsay Townsend on 7 March 2017

Format: Kindle Edition


“When Georgianne, the appealing, enterprising heroine of ‘Sunday’s Child’ first encounters Rupert Tarrant, she is fourteen. Georgianne thinks even then the tall, blond handsome soldier is the kind of man she hopes to marry one day. At seventeen, when they meet again, Georgianne is in mourning for her brothers and father, lost in the Napoleonic wars. She is now wary of becoming romantically involved with a military man, despite the limited life that an unmarried woman is forced to lead in the 1800s. However, as the novel superbly shows, a young woman without a father or brother to protect her interests is vulnerable to predatory males. None is more predatory than Lord Pennington, a truly odious Earl, whose relentless pursuit of Georgianne is aided by the conventions and morals of the time. Rupert Tarrant meanwhile is haunted by the violent death of his betrothed and is torn between remaining single to grieve and marrying to provide an heir to his recently acquired estate. That Georgianne and Tarrant should marry – she for protection, he for an heir – seems an ideal compromise. But what chance is there for love to grow between them? This is a flowing romance, full of intrigue and incident, with rich details of Regency fashion, food and furniture. There are frost fairs and Nabobs, Lord Byron’s poetry, kidnappers and ruffians, attempted blackmail and a heroine who can shoot. The whole convenient marriage trope is treated with tender realism. With their careful treatment of each other and their striving to understand their differing experiences, Georgianne and Tarrant thoroughly deserve their eventual happy ever after. A sweet treat.”
