Set in 1194-5 this book is chronologically earlier than book 2 although I wrote it afterwards.

"I should have had nothing to do with those accursed Angevins. I should have run like hell in the opposite direction."
Giles de Soutenay can scarcely be blamed for his disappointment. Promised an heiress by Eleanor, Regent of England in Richard I's absence, he is dismayed to discover that, although young and attractive, his bride has all the warmth of a stone effigy.

For the newly widowed Isabella, the reality of a new husband is no cause for celebration. She will do her dury but no more. She will give de Soutenay no reason to complain. She will be dutiful and compliant - but he will not have her heart for any belief in love or tenderness died during those brief years of her first marriage. However, she has reckoned without Giles' perseverance.

After the snows of winter, spring brings hope, until the arrival of a stranger threatens Giles' and Isabella's blossoming happiness. A stranger who might tear them apart before they have truly found each other. Only if Giles can learn patience and Isabella can learn trust can they hope to find lasting love.

            Here's what Nikki McSweeney of the British Bobsleigh team said about one of the poems in the book Hopes, Dreams & Medals!
"So 'Adrenaline Junkie', I like the poem, as an adrenaline junkie when you read it, it makes sense, we do things to get our adrenaline going, almost to the risk of death. As extreme as it may sound that is what gets the adrenaline pumping. Like with bobsleigh its a high risk sport, as with skiing and such things as bungee jumping. 
When you read through the poem, as I read it, I read it faster as I go through it up until 'You need the bright excitement'. After then I read it slower, as if I've got the the bottom of a bobsleigh run or at the bottom of the mountain after I've skied down it. Its almost that breath of relief you're taking that you have survived

I love it!!!! I feel it gives me the same feeling that I do at the end of the bob run.... like I want to do it again!!!"

A Promise to Keep

£ 12.15 

Book 2 in the Out of Time series. It can also be read as a stand-alone novel.

For the last five years, Marion has kept the promise she made to a medieval knight, one Giles de Soutenay, to deliver two Epipens every year at Whitsuntide via the mystical beech tree which once catapulted her back in time. As long as Giles is able to provide these devices for Prince John, he will be able to keep his lands...and his life.

But this year, Marion is in hospital. Desperate to keep her word, she entrusts the devices to Shannon, her daughter. Shannon only has to place the Epipens in a hollow in the roots of the old tree. However, she has recently been betrayed by the man she trusted. Still hurting and embarrassed by the pity she sees in the eyes of her friends, she just wants to get as far away as possible. And she can't get much further away than the twelfth century.

Hildegarde, Abbess of Sparnstow, is expecting a visit from Giles. She is not expecting a young woman from 2012.

Marion Hart, visiting the ruined abbey at Sparnstow, could never have imagined she would be called upon to help save one of the most dangerous men of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.
