Release day: The Knight’s Scarred Maiden

1 August 2017

Today is the official release of The Knight’s Scarred Maiden by Nicole Locke (ebook and paperback, Harlequin Historical). Here’s the blurb:

A maiden for the mercenary

Mercenary knight Rhain is living on borrowed time. With a vengeful warlord pursuing him, he has accepted his fate—though first he must get his men to safety.

When he rescues mysterious and deeply scarred Helissent from her attackers, Rhain soon wishes he wasn’t marked for death. He can never be the man she deserves—his scandalous lineage alone dictates that—but Rhain can’t resist the temptation to show this innocent maiden how beautiful she truly is…

Lovers and Legends: a clash of Celtic passions

Nicole dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

The strength of love has always held some deep fascination for me. However, I don’t believe love fixes anything, but rather, it accepts. And by that acceptance, it heals. The scars are still there, but they no longer matter. If there ever were two people with wounds it is Rhain and Helissent. Him, with his lineage, his mother suffering from epileptic seizures and madness. So he travels the earth knowing he shouldn’t create his own family. He carves out some existence for himself as a mercenary until he crosses swords with the wrong man, and jeopardises the lives of his men, and the woman he’s growing to love. For Helissent, her wound is her shame of not saving her sister from the fire that killed her entire family. It’s her cowardice because, for a moment, she wanted to lie down and die with them. It’s her living with the scars that cover the right side of her body, and because she feels unworthy, she welcomes the horrified looks of strangers. Only when they are together, only when they share their pasts, do they find a way to accept themselves. It took Helissent in Rhain’s life to accept his past. It took Rhain to give Helissent courage to accept a future.

You can find out more about this book at Nicole’s website or buy it from Amazon.
