Timeless and Tender Romance: Lauren Linwood @laurenlinwood #RLFblog #Historical

A Bit of Heaven on Earth

As a young girl, Lauren Linwood could barely wait for the library's bookmobile to arrive every Saturday at the local shopping center. She would check out the limit of six books and return them, completely read, the next weekend. Her favorite game was "Let's Pretend That..." – which still helps jumpstart her when she sits down to write today.
Lauren fell in love with history, reading every biography in her school's library, and continued telling the stories of individuals when she became a history teacher. Focusing on medieval and western historicals, with a few romantic suspense and contemporary novels thrown in, Lauren tries her best to steer her characters on the course she plots for them - only to find that oftentimes they have a mind of their own and veer off in new, unpredictable directions.
A native Texan, Lauren lives with her family in a Dallas suburb. An avid reader, moviegoer, and sports fan, she manages stress by alternating yoga with five mile walks. Follow Lauren's blog, Write Up My Alley, as she saunters through her writing journey, fun facts from history, and life in general.

A Bit of Heaven on Earth

When Gavin of Ashgrove and his closest friend are captured in a fierce battle during the Hundred Years' War, their captors demand a hefty ransom from their fathers for their return. Robert is quickly set free, but Gavin's father refuses to pay for his son's release, leaving him to rot in a squalid French prison. Aided by a sympathetic priest, he escapes and returns home to England, only to find he has been proclaimed a bastard and disinherited.
With nowhere to turn Gavin journeys to Kentwood, where he fostered as a boy, hoping Lord Aldred will take him on as a knight in his guard. The old warrior is close to death, but he soon realizes Gavin is his son. Aldred plots to have Gavin inherit Kentwood and marry his much younger wife, Elizabeth, a famed and opinionated beauty who remains a virgin after a decade of marriage.
Will the king recognize Lord Aldred's first request of a marriage between Elizabeth and Robert, uniting Robert's estate with Kentwood—or will the temperamental Edward reward Aldred's years of service and honor a dying man's final request?

West, where she turns her travels into dime novels that she writes under the pen name Lud Madison.
