I’m a romance writer, but before that, I was a reader of romance novels and my favorites were historical stories set in medieval times. Genres rise and fall in popularity, but medieval romances, whether knights in shining armor or Highlanders in their tartans, are always there. So I was thrilled to have the chance to put together a collection of stories set in long-ago times in faraway places.
I asked authors to let their fantasies run wild to an era where men wearing heavy armor or thick tartans sent a spirited young maiden’s (or salty widow’s) heart fluttering. To imagine a primitive, simpler time where survival required physical strength, and men were judged for their fierce loyalty and unshakeable honor. To tell the story of that knight serving a conquering king, who enters a keep, his armor tarnished and smeared with dirt and blood, and let the reader watch as he scans the great hall until his gaze snags on a woman whose frightened face is nonetheless set into stubborn lines as she meets his piercing gaze… And then imagine what happens next…
What I received were stories set in Scotland and England, as well as Iceland, Japan, Rome, France and Armenia, with knights, Highlanders, Vikings, Mongols and even a Samurai. There’s certainly a warrior among these tales to suit every taste, and sexy battles of dominance and submission hot enough to make even the most modern woman yearn to be taken by one of these rough, fierce men.
