How to Train Your Knight

Written by Stella Marie Alden

Genre(s): romance, historical romance, medieval



Year of our Lord, 1276.

In the hours just before dawn, blasphemous curses echo throughout the stone manor. A knife clatters to the floor, and a feisty young widow is bound, blindfolded, and led to the marriage altar. The king couldn’t possibly have sanctioned this farce of a marriage, could he?

After all, she alone transformed a few mud huts and starving serfs into a flourishing town, never once hesitating to pay generous taxes to his royal kingdom. Abandon her beloved people to be ruled by her new husband, an ignorant Templar knight? Never! the Lady Ann vows.

A murderous witch for a wife? The Beast of Thornhill finds himself in the middle of either a cruel jest or an evil conspiracy. After returning from the Holy wars, he accepts bestowment of a small parcel of land in return for saving King Edward’s life. But the reward comes with a warning regarding the estate’s mistress.

Despite his insatiable attraction to the black-haired beauty, he allows her time to warm to him while observing her strange, forward-thinking ways. But when all is on the line, will he stand by her through the inquisition or will they both hang for her secrets? 

Here's what

Fans are saying

Emotionally riveting!

An easy read with tons of details. A sexy story of passionate love developing between a hard-headed knight and a women who is far beyond her time. The characters are incredibly likeable, and the style of writing is easily followed, with some great humor included. I really liked the book, i'm hoping to read more stories from Stella.

Great read with hot moments

A great, easy read with some hot moments. Enough medieval flavor to be interesting but not overwhelming. A strong, forward-thinking woman marries an impatient knight with a dry wit. It was a fun story with a hint of mystery and great characters, the type of characters you sympathize with and find yourself rooting for. Very satisfying story.
