The Blood Sword Legacy continues…


Bound by a brotherhood forged in the hell of a Saracen prison, eight Blood Swords — mercenary knights for William the Conqueror — set out to claim their legacies the only way they can: by right of arms, by right of victory, by right of conquest.



Most of England has submitted to King William, but Wales refuses to yield. The King’s trusted Blood Swords are unable to prevail, and while Stefan de Valrey is left unconscious on the battlefield, his sworn brothers are captured. Despite terrible injuries, Stefan vows to liberate them. Even rescuing a delectably beautiful—and naked—maiden from peril cannot deter him, for the silver-eyed Arianrhod is a Welsh princess, a hostage Stefan can exchange for his brothers…so long as Arian remains as pure as when he met her. But that is a constraint Stefan finds harder to honor with every passing day.


When the mysterious knight slings her across his saddle, Arian knows she should fix her thoughts on escape. But Arian has never before experienced the deep, soul-changing desire that Stefan arouses with merely a glance. Breaking their vows could set two kingdoms ablaze—can they control the sweet, terrible fire burning between them?


"If you’ve been waiting for the perfect medieval series, this is it. Karin Tabke does for Norman knights what J.R. Ward has done with vampires, with hot alpha heroes and the fiery heroines who tame them… Sumptuous. Sexy. Superb." ~ Monica McCarty, New York Times bestselling author

About the author

Karin is a multi-published, national bestselling, award-winning author.

 

Karin has sold more than a dozen stories to US publishers: Kensington, Simon & Schuster, and Penguin Random House. Her self-publishing debut, THE CHRONICLES of KATRINA, was met with resounding enthusiasm. Never one to disappoint her readers, Karin happily launched the spinoff series The Bad Boys of the Bay, featuring the heroes she knows so well–hot cops. Translation rights to Karin’s books have been licensed in Japan, Thailand, Germany, France, Spain, Brazil, Italy, Portugal and the UK.

 

In 2008, Karin’s novel JADED (Simon & Schuster) won the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Erotic Romance Suspense. In 2011, her paranormal romance BLOOD LAW (Berkley) won the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice award for Best Erotic Fiction and was the first book in her Blood Moon Rising series. In 2012, the second book in the trilogy, BLOODRIGHT, was nominated for the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Erotic Paranormal Romance. Karin’s other awards include a CAPA and the Holt Medallion, as well as a finalist nod for the Prism. Her debut single title, GOOD GIRL GONE BAD (Simon & Schuster), was featured in the October 2006 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.

 

Karin’s most rewarding award, however, was not bestowed for her storytelling skills but for her mentorship of unpublished writers. She was honored to receive RWA’s (Romance Writers of America) Pro Mentor of the Year award in 2008. She has served as president of her local RWA chapter in San Francisco and as Director-at-Large on the RWA National Board of Directors.

 

Karin has been married to her own hot cop–now licensed Private Investigator–for over thirty years and she writes what she knows. She has also started and sold several profitable businesses, but her true love is writing passionate love stories. When she isn’t writing, Karin loves to travel and does so extensively, meeting readers and sharing her knowledge via workshops at writer conventions and conferences.

 

With that kind of background, is it any wonder that Sylvia Day has Tabke locked and loaded in her ‘must-read’ sights?


“Tabke’s edgy and delicious tales hold a top spot on my must-read list!” ~ Sylvia Day

Promised in marriage to a brutal Norseman, Nora MacTorkil flees in terror the night before the wedding.  The daughter of the richest merchant in Dublin, she knows she must hide—but where?  In the moonlight, she makes a desperate run along the dock hoping to conceal herself aboard one of her father’s ships.  Until Nora trips and tumbles into the River Liffey, her cry for help cut off as the dark water closes over her head…


Many drunken nights have passed and still, Niall O’Byrne cannot free himself from memories of the woman who betrayed him and broke his heart.  The brother of Ireland’s most infamous rebel, he rode away from Glenmalure in a wild attempt to escape his misery and vowed to never love again.  Yet a half-drowned damsel in distress moves Niall so fiercely that he’ll do anything to protect her from the beast who would claim her.
