The Snow White Bride is the third in my Jewels of Kinfairlie trilogy. After Alexander marries off his two eldest sisters, they decide to get even and make his match – with the alluring and mysterious Eleanor. I love this story, how Alexander falls in love when he feels he has other responsibilities to tend first, and also how Alexander heals Eleanor’s heartache with his patience and love. The finale of this book is a scene that I’ve always loved. This pair have persisted in my thoughts ever since they first took life beneath my typing fingers, so I’m particularly happy to send their story back out into the world again.
My original plan had been to give Rosamunde her own book, but that was not to be. For years, I heard from readers who were worried about her fate in the caverns beneath Ravensmuir, so it was wonderful to be able to finally tell Rosamunde’s story in her own novella. “The Ballad of Rosamunde” was published in the Mammoth Book of Irish Romance, but it was edited for space constraints there. Rosamunde’s entire story – because I know you want it all! – is now available digitally. It has also been included in this print edition of The Snow White Bride as a bonus read.
Many of you will be happy to hear that the adventures at Kinfairlie is continuing with a new series called The True Love Brides. The True Love Brides is a four book series, telling the stories of the next four Lammergeier siblings and their respective quests for true love – it’s not a spoiler to tell you ahead of time that all will get their Happily-Ever-Afters! I’m really enjoying my return to Kinfairlie and medieval Scotland, and hope that you will enjoy these books, as well. The Renegade’s Heart is the first book in this new series and will be available in spring 2012.
As with all of my re-releases, I’ve chosen not to revise The Snow White Bride, but to republish it pretty much the way it was published in the first place. There may be a few typos missing in this version, but otherwise it is very similar to the original.
I’ve enjoyed revisiting The Snow White Bride, and catching up with the Kinfairlie clan all over again. I hope you enjoy reading it, as well.
Until next time, I hope you are well and have plenty of good books to read.
All my best,
