Out January 20th, 2015 from Tirgearr Publishing, the first in a new series of novels inspired by the Breton lais of the Middle Ages.
KNIGHT OF THE WHITE HART is a re-imagining of Marie de France’s lai ‘Guigemar’. Naturally I’ve given it a few twists of my own and turned a short story into a whole novel. Here’s the blurb:
Guigemar is a Breton knight who fights alongside King Arthur but has always scorned love. Returning home he goes hunting with a friend but accidentally shoots a white deer. The arrow bounces back to wound him, too. The doe curses him to suffer from the wound until he meets a woman who will love him truly — and suffer for that love like no one ever has. He rides away, driven mad with pain until he stumbles to the shore where a stunning ship sails him away, despite lacking a crew. He tosses and turns in fevered dreams until he awakes to find the most beautiful woman he has ever seen peering in at him.
And there his real troubles begin.
The Middle Ages: when ‘romance’ meant adventure!
