ABOUT THE BOOK

 
Title: Lord of Her Heart 
Author: Sherrinda Ketchersid  
Publisher: Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas 
Release Date: May 14, 2019 
Genre: Inspirational Historical Romance

He’s fighting for his future—she’s running for her life.

Lady Jocelyn Ashburne suspects something is amiss at her family’s castle because her father ceases to write to her. When she overhears a plot to force her into vows—either to the church or a husband—she disguises herself and flees the convent in desperation to discover the truth.

Malcolm Castillon of Berkham is determined to win the next tournament and be granted a manor of his own. After years of proving his worth on the jousting field, he yearns for a life of peace. Rescuing a scrawny lad who turns out to be a beautiful woman is not what he bargained for. Still, he cannot deny that she stirs his heart like no other, in spite of her conniving ways.

Chaos, deception, and treachery threaten their goals, but both are determined to succeed. Learning to trust each other might be the only way either of them survives.

EXCERPT

The rusty lock would not budge.

Jocelyn blew a strand of unruly hair from her eyes and paused to still her racing heart. No matter how many times she’d practiced in the privacy of the garderobe, nothing had prepared her for the trembling of her fingers or the time wasted looking over her shoulder. Taking a deep breath, she pried the tip of her knife back into the lock, listening for the quiet catch of the spring.

“Jocelyn, make haste.” Sister Mary stood guard several paces away.

Though the smaller postern gate at the back of the abbey was far from the dormitory, sometimes sisters were known to walk the nearby flower gardens for nightly prayer. Jocelyn prayed that none would be so inspired that night. “Do not fret. I shan’t fail.”

Her heart drummed in her ears. She fought down the panic welling inside as she wiggled the tip of the blade. The lock jolted open. Closing her eyes, she almost wept with relief. Thank you, Lord. She pushed against the heavy gate, wincing as it creaked, piercing the heavy mantle of silence.

 Jocelyn turned to Mary who stood with her clasped hands pressed against her heart. She ran to her friend, hugging her tightly. “Pray for me. Pray for success in my quest.”

Mary clutched Jocelyn to her. “The important thing is that you get to safety.” She loosened her hold and smiled through her tears. “I will hold you close in my heart and pray for you constantly.”

“And I you, my friend.” Jocelyn grabbed her sack and ran.
