A Chinese monk striding down the aisle was the first shock
at countess-to-be Evelyn Stantonâ€™s wedding. To watch him
dispatch three groomsmen, unarmed, and to learn that he was
white and the long-lost heir to the Earldom of Warhaven,
was the second. He would be her husband?
After the slaughter of his family in far-off China, Jacob
Cato found sanctuary. In a Xi Lin temple he learned to be
strong, but now he had a grander goal: to reclaim his
English heritage and the woman heâ€™d left behind.
Revenge. It poisoned everything heâ€™d learned, everything
heâ€™d done, and yet every fiber of Jacob burned for itâ€”just
as he burned for the beautiful but very English Evelyn.
Long ago, the conspiracy to kill his family had stranded
him, lost Jacob in the exotic East and made him
unrecognizable to his countrymenâ€¦and women. He had not
forgotten that past. It was to make peace that he had
returned. The manner was yet to be decided.

Re: The Dragon Earl

Some books begin by one scene that sticks in my head. For this book...that wedding scene just stuck. Old norman church. Bride and groom at the altar. Then a guy in saffron monks robes coming down the aisle sayingm, "Wait! I'm the REAL groom!". That was just too perfect a scene to let go...so The Dragon Earl was born!

What a wonderful event. I would be in
heaven. I love history which is one of
the reasons I read historical romance.
It is much more enjoyable learning
about the smuggling problem along
the English Coast by reading a
romance than by listening to a dry
lecture from a grouchy old man. I am
going to check their website and see
what the event is like. Would love to
attend in England. Of course, I'm not
a writer, but would love to sit there

I especially enjoy Victorian era historical novels.

I recently joined the Historical Novel Society. I found their sight by accident and was in HEAVEN! I'm a hughe Historical fiction fan. Their web sight and quarterly reviews newsletter is the best I have found for Historical Fiction Nuts. One of these days I hope to make it to a conference (as a reader).
