In the crowd: Gisborne

The JOUST tournament has ended and we find ourselves making our way towards Castle Bryggja for the grand feast and mayhaps to explore the rooms.

As we walk into the courtyard we see Sir Guy with...

a chocolate egg?!?


READ about Sir Guy here...

Book of Pawns

Twelfth century England – a time when status means power.

Guy of Gisborne – a man of disturbing secrets and subtle skills.

Ysabel of Moncrieff – a woman of status whose life changes with the receipt of a letter.

Two people drawn together by loyalty, lust, and a lost inheritance and whose existence depends on how they move between Church and State; on whom they shall trust…

  1. :O :O :O ... whoa!
    That good lookin' Gisborne fella could be carrying around an egg made from chicken-poo and I'd still let him put his chain-mail in my closet :D

  2. LOL @ M.A.D I was thinking the same thing!

  3. Gisborne is Sir Guy of Gisborne (also known as Richard Armitage, English actor and currently filming as Thorin Oakenshield in the Hobbit)
    from the BBC TV series Robin Hood. Guy has a massive worldwide following of females and I decided to write an alternate historical fiction/romance of the man. It was published as an ebook in February and is due to be available in print in May.
    Thanks so much Velvet for allowing Guy to be a part of Castle Bryggia. I remember what fun we have had there in the past!

  4. I loved that series!!!! I always liked Guy better than Robin Hood :)!!! I commented on I think I can, I think I can… on Prue's site.


  5. I'm not entering this giveaway because I intend to buy a print copy as soon as it comes out. I wanted to buy also The Stumpwork Robe and The Last Stitch in print, but unfortunately they are out of print. T____T

  6. Gaida, briefly, TSR and TLS are Out of Print but a new publisher is re-releasing them later this year. It will be a slow release so I hope you can stick with me.
    At the moment A Thousand Glass Flowers (the third in the series) is free via Smashwords which will make it free on I-pad, Kindle, Kobo and others. It takes time to filter down, but its already free on B & N's Nook. Or you can go direct to Smashwords.com and download to computer etc. Glass Flowers is a stand alone, even though its the third in the Chronicles. You don't have to read the other two first.
    As for that hunky Gisborne above! He's taken me out of my comfort zone of fantasy and caused me to write my first ever historical fiction/historical romance.
    I think Vvb32 might have an extra copy of Gisborne to offer as a prize ... over to you, Vvb32.

  7. Thank you for the wonderful news, Prue! :D
