At last after long years of English imprisonment, Scotland's King James I 
negotiates the terms of his release and of his marriage to his beloved Joan 
Beaufort. But he returns to a Scotland in chaos. Surrounded by plots, 
intrigues, and rebellions, James struggles to restore order and survive attempts 
by his family to overthrow him. Above all, James fears that his life and his 
own dream—of a Scotland at peace with a strong parliament—might be lost 
to his family's greed for power.

Templar's Cross Giveaway!

The Templar's Cross, currently on pre-order on Amazon, will be released for sale on August 7. As a Giveaway for the release I will gift a copy of the novel to any of my Twitter followers who tweets a link to it on that day either on Amazon US or Amazon UK.

Once you tweet the link on that day, please DM me with your email address so I can gift the novel to you. And I very much hope you enjoy this novel. It stretched my wings a bit writing it, but it won't be my last medieval mystery.

Sir Law Kintour has returned from the war in France crippled, broke, and in need of a patron. In desperation, he reluctantly accepts a commission to find a nobleman's runaway wife. He enlists the help of a fellow Scot with whom he escaped after their defeat at the Battle of Verneuil. But his friend is murdered, and Law discovers he has been lied to. As the murders continue to mount, powerful interests come into play. When the Sheriff of Perth considers him a convenient scapegoat, it gives Law no choice but to untangle the lies and find the killer or hang for the murders.
