Lords of Conquest
Medieval Romances

These books were originally published by NAL.


The Wexford Family

  

Set in 12th century London, the Wexford Family books were inspired by two of my favorite Alfred Hitchcock films, Rear Window and Notorious. In Silken Threads, the widowed Joanna Chapman rents a room to a mysterious soldier with a broken leg–and a secret. Joanna’s brother, Hugh of Wexford, is a footloose mercenary knight who meets his match in the beautiful young scholar he recruits to spy for England.

“Fresh, swift, and sexy…”

– New York Times bestselling author Mary Jo Putney


The Perigueux Family

  

Brothers Alex and Luke de Perigueux come to England as soldiers with William the Conqueror’s invading forces in the Perigueux Family series. Luke is granted an estate through marriage to a reluctant Saxon widow, while the restless Alex tries to forget the only woman he ever loved through relentless warfare and wenching.

“Patricia Ryan continues to create superb medieval romances that
capture the atmosphere and tenor of the time.”

The Fairfax Family

  

Martine of Rouen and her brother, Father Rainulf Fairfax, journey from France to England to start new lives in the two linked Fairfax Family books. Martine has agreed to an arranged marriage so that Rainulf will be free to restore his faith through a pilgrimage to the Holy Land–but fate has other ideas.

“A richly textured pageant of passion. A grand adventure!”

– New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs
