Knight Treasures #3

Here is the direct link to the page: http://netgal.ly/Z69Hwo

Fleeing for her life after a savage attack on her homeland, Lady Sabine of Clearmorrow finds sanctuary on the windswept shores of southern England, praying that her family reaches her before her foes. When Sir Darrick of Lockwood shows up in a swirl of raging wildfires, Sabine is not willing to trust the dark knight, though he may be her last hope.  And when she learns of his urgent quest to locate his sister, she realizes she may be his, too…

Lady Sabine is the last woman who saw his beloved sister alive, which is the only reason Darrick demands she join him on the perilous journey to bring Elizabeth home. But even as he shelters Sabine from their powerful enemies—and savors the sweet passion between them—he wonders if the brave beauty will bring him all that he desires, or draw him deeper into danger….

I’d love to hear from you. And, please, be sure to leave a review.

KNIGHT QUESTS #2
For a Knight of the Swan in 15th century England, falling for the enemy is an act of treason . . .

Orphaned as a young girl, Brigitte de Marnier has learned to live by her instincts. Which doesn’t explain why she accepts protection from a soldier in the service of the enemy crown. But something about Drem Ap Dafydd has her leaning into his strength, and surrendering to his intoxicating kiss, even knowing he is duty bound to destroy her . . .

As a newly appointed Knight of the Swan, Drem is eager to prove his allegiance to the English crown in the battle against France. But in his sheltering arms, beautiful Frenchwoman Brigitte arouses in him another instinct—to love, honor, and protect. Then Drem discovers his beloved has a price on her head and he must choose between his vow—and his heart’s desire . . .

The Blurb Blog Tour and Giveaway Continues Through May 19

Foolish Bride by A.S. Fenichel and Knight Secrets by C.C. Wiley

I’m excited to share the first book in the Knights of the Swan series that is published by Kensington/Lyrical Press.


Knight Secrets

Sworn to protect the crown, a Knight of the Swan must never surrender—not even to love . . .

England, 1415. Ordered never to leave the lonely tower on her family estate, Lady Clarice Margrave is suddenly set free when her home is plundered. Now she is determined to discover the truth behind her father’s alleged treason. But an act of daring only propels her into a new prison, with the very knight who destroyed her home as her keeper. Sir Ranulf, Lord of Sedgewic, is ruthless in his inquisition, though there is a searing tenderness in his touch. Is it possible her bold jailor is the Red Wolf of whom her father spoke—and the one man she might be able to trust?

As a knight, Ranulf never questions his troth, but his beautiful prisoner stirs his heart and mind like no other. Clarice is achingly vulnerable—and extremely closed-mouth about her possible ties to the plot against the king. Duty demands he keep his distance, though he yearns to take her to his bed and adore her until he discovers what lies within her heart. And he would—if he weren’t in danger of losing his own . . .


Foolish Bride

Sadly ever after . . . unless some dreams really do come true?

Elinor Burkenstock never believed in fairy tales. Sure, she’s always been a fool for love—what woman isn’t? But Elinor knows the difference between fiction and truth. Daydreams and reality. True love and false promises. . . . Until the unthinkable happens, and Elinor’s engagement is suddenly terminated and no one, least of all her fiancé, will tell her why.

Sir Michael Rollins’s war-hero days seem far behind him when, after one last hurrah before his wedding, he gets shot and his injuries leave him in dire shape. He wants nothing more than to marry Elinor, the woman of his wildest dreams. But Elinor’s father forbids it . . . and soon Michael is faced with a desperate choice: Spare Elinor a life with a broken man or risk everything to win her heart—until death do they part?

Thank you for your support!

With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching, I wanted to take a moment and thank all of you, my readers, for your continued support.

When I first started The Knights of the Swan series, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I had just made the daunting yet rewarding transition from romance reader to romance writer and was spending hours each day both researching medieval history and learning everything I could about storytelling. All of that hard work still continues to this day, but pursuing a career as an author has truly been the journey of a lifetime.

With the release of Knight Treasures: Knights of the Swan, Book 3 on November 28th, and Sir Nathan’s Story: Knight Furies: Knights of the Swan, Book 4 scheduled for release on July 28, 2018, there’s a lot to look forward to and I can’t wait for you to join me for the ride.

Whether you’ve just picked up a copy of Knight Treasures for the first time, or have been reading my historical fiction since Knight Secrets, thank you so much! Writing these stories is a dream come true and the first three installments are just the beginning. Here’s to an exciting future!

Get swept away with historical romance

knight-treasures C.C. WileyAre you tired of reading the same old stories? Could you use an escape that doesn’t evolve a weak protagonist or a predictable ending? If this sounds all too familiar, it’s time to pick up a historical romance novel.

You might be under the impression that these books are nothing more than pages filled with bodice- ripping and dukes from another time period, but that isn’t the case. Historical novels are so much more: Vivid scenery, beautiful prose and engaging dialogue, complemented by fascinating historical facts.

In fact, my Knights of the Swan novels have been crafted to combine both medieval history and passion for romantic stories you won’t find anywhere else.

When I write, my goal is to capture a moment in time, where the threads of history, adventure, hope, passion and love, sweep the reader away. Here’s to hopes, dreams, and the possibilities of it all.You don’t have to take my word for it, though. Here’s what reviewers have to say:

Fun, arresting and action-packed, Wiley’s first “Knights of the Swan” book will put readers in the center of the action. The love scenes are hot and tender, the characters are well defined and the protagonists’ rocky road to romance is entertaining.

Order my first two installments in The Knights of the Swan series, then mark your calendar for November 28th. That’s when the third book, Knight Treasures hits stores. Pre-order your copy today via Amazon Kindle, Apple, Google, Kobo or Nook.

Knight Treasures: The Knights of the Swan #3 arrives Nov. 28, and will sweep you away to a different time period.

Here’s a little bit to get you hooked:

“Fleeing for her life after a savage attack on her homeland, Lady Sabine of Clearmorrow finds sanctuary on the windswept shores of southern England, praying that her family reaches her before her foes. When Sir Darrick of Lockwood shows up in a swirl of raging wildfires, Sabine is not willing to trust the dark knight, though he may be her last hope. And when she learns of his urgent quest to locate his sister, she realizes she may be his, too…

Lady Sabine is the last woman who saw his beloved sister alive, which is the only reason Darrick demands she join him on the perilous journey to bring Elizabeth home. But even as he shelters Sabine from their powerful enemies—and savors the sweet passion between them—he wonders if the brave beauty will bring him all that he desires, or draw him deeper into danger…”

BarkBox Day! Woof!

 

 

BarkBox has done it again and everyone at our house is tail-wagging happy. We are waving our Bark University pennant high!

Bark University

 

It’s official! Our 7-month-old, Lucky Pup, Mr. Levi, is off to college! Over the weekend, we received the letter from Bella Ada Tenderloin, Dean of Admissions. So it must be true. Right? IMG_5347

The whole family will agree that our Mr. Levi is quite the intelligent pup. IMG_5344 (Edited)

 

 

Judging by his advanced skills, he will be a stellar addition to Bark University. He is already participating in Advanced Archaeology and is deep into research to discover what happens to the humans when they leave.

 

We are certain the extra-furricular campus activities are right up Mr. Levi’s alley.

Unfortunately, Rad Chad had a little too much attention over the weekend and is already looking a little RUFF.

If only he would use the map to find his way around campus. But that’s provided he doesn’t get too homesick for his family. Looks like he’ll have to hang out with us for a while longer and dream about one-day being the big dog on campus.  #BarkUniversity #BarkBoxDay

Thanks again, BarkBox!
