LORD OF THE MANOR
He had but to raise a brow and all acceded to his wishes; Gilles d'Argent alone ruled Hawkwatch Castle. The formidable baron considered love to be a jongleur's game until he met the beguiling Emma. With hair spun of gold and eyes filled with intelligence, she bound him to her. And the powerful knight sought what could not be demanded, but must be given freely: her love.
LADY OF HIS HEART
Her innocence stolen away in the blush of youth, Emma Aethelwin no longer believed in love. Reconciled to her life as a penniless weaver, she little expected to snare the attention of Gilles d'Argent. At first Emma denied the tenderness of the warrior's words and the passion he stirred within her. But as desire wove a tangible web around them, the resulting pattern told a tale of love, and she dared to dream that she could be the lady of his heart as he was the master of hers.
I was born in Gillingham, Kent, England, and then moved to suburban Philadelphia where I still live. I have a great husband who always picks up the slack for me! I also have a handsome son and a beautiful daughter . . . they take after their dad!
I love reading and writing both historical and paranormal romance, but whichever genre I choose, I like to include a puzzle for the reader to solve along with the characters.
I’m super excited that my books are being reissued as ebooks. As someone who is addicted to reading, I’m never without my ebook reader. Here’s what’s happening with my books . . .
My “lords” are coming out now. You can download the books by clicking on their titles.
My “Tolemac Wars” series is coming this summer and fall:
VIRTUAL HEAVEN in August
VIRTUAL DESIRE in September
VIRTUAL WARRIOR in October
I want to thank my many readers who kept in touch with me during my hiatus from publishing while I was undergoing a battle with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. I’m happy to say I feel great and am in remission again. If you ever need a charity to adopt, I highly recommend the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The medicines I received did not exist five years before I was diagnosed! They are making strides against blood disorders every day.
Check me out on Facebook and if you join my mailing list, I’ll let you know as each of my books becomes available for download.
“Ann Lawrence. . . captures the reader on the first page.” —RT Book Reviews
“Ann Lawrence has shown her versatility as a writer,
alternating between a virtual fantasy series and her
medieval historical romances. The common denominator between
the two is the strength of her heroines, and the courage of
her heroes, as they fight seemingly insurmountable odds to
grab the brass ring.”
—Leslie Tramposch, ParaNormalRomance
