The Crusader’s Handfast

The Crusader's Handfast, #5 in the Champions of Saint Euphemia series of medieval romances by Claire DelacroixRadegunde and Duncan’s story is the unexpected (but necessary) fifth book in the Champions of Saint Euphemia series.

The Crusader’s Handfast begins in Paris, after the reliquary has been safely delivered to the Paris Temple. Their story involves the revelation of secrets, and the resolution of hidden conflicts. I like that these two ensure the futures of their respective employers from behind the scenes, and I also like that Radegunde’s cheerfulness is so restorative for Duncan. In a way, their resilience makes them two of a kind, but their fates are not entirely their own. Are they star-crossed lovers? Or will the course of love run true?

This story is being published in installments, beginning in December. The whole book will be available for purchase in both print and digital formats in July 2016.
