Hostage of the Heart by Linda Acaster
1066: the Welsh Marches. While the English men-at-arms are away supporting their new king, and with the balance of power shifted, Rhodri ap Hywel sweeps down the valley to reclaim stolen lands, taking the Saxon Lady Dena as a battle hostage. But who is the more barbaric: a man who protects his people by the strength of his sword-arm, or Dena's kin who swear fealty to a canon of lies and refuse to pay her ransom? Dare she place her life in the hands of a warrior-knight shielding dark secrets of his own?
Reviews: "...This story is definitely a romance, but is a very sweet one without all of the overtures and exaggerations of emotion and physical attraction you find in the typical run of the mill romance novels. The hero and heroine come off as real people, and both of them nestle their way into your heart. Some of the secondary characters are interesting as well, and by the end of the book I was surprised at the revelation that was made (I'm usually able to weed those out while I read). All in all, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys European history, a heartwarming romance and a good dose of intrigue. Bravo on a story well written!..." 4 stars - Jenna Johnson, author of 'The Legend of Oescienne'
About The Author...
Hi, step inside and be welcome. I'm a writer who can't be pigeonholed into a single genre.
My historicals include Native American "Beneath The Shining Mountains", set on the northern plains early in the 19th century, and Mediaeval "Hostage of the Heart" set on the English/Welsh borders in 1066.
My contemporary novel is a paranormal thriller "Torc of Moonlight" Book 1 in the Celtic Goddess Trilogy, set in university cities in northern England. I've always been interested in history, how different landscapes moulded the people who lived among them, and the echoes they leave for modern people to hear.
My short fiction covers a disparate assortment, from Crime to Literary, Women's Fiction to Science Fiction, Horror to Humour, over 70 published in magazines in the UK and USA. A collection of ghost stories can be found in "Contribution to Mankind and other Stories of the Dark".
