Lindsay Townsend

Author Bio.

Lindsay lives in Yorkshire, England, where she was born, and started writing stories at an early age. Always a voracious reader, she took a degree in medieval history  and worked in a library for a while, then began to write full-time after marriage.

Her first unpublished historical found her an agent and the second got a publisher in London interested. They wanted her to write with a modern setting, which she did – several romantic thrillers set in Greece, Italy or on Dartmoor in the English West Country – and enjoyed it, but historicals are really her first love.

Lindsay is currently writing medieval romance for Prairie Rose Publications and herself. She re-issued the Knight books that Kensington Zebra first accepted and published and they are available via Kindle Unlimited, all for 99 cents or 99p.

Praire Rose publish her medieval romance novels  ‘Sir Conrad and the Christmas Treasure,’ ‘Dark Maiden’ ‘The Snow Bride’ and its sequel ‘A Summer Bewitchment’ as well as several several medieval romance novellas, available as stand-alones or in anthologies.

She is also fascinated by the ancient world, especially Rome, Egypt and the Bronze Age. ‘Flavia’s Secret’, set in Roman Britain, came out from Bookstrand first, and two more historicals, ‘Blue Gold’, set in ancient Egypt, and ‘Bronze Lightning’, set in Bronze Age Greece and the Britain of Stonehenge, were also originally published by Bookstrand. Again, all these ancient world romances have now been reissued by Lindsay in Kindle Unlimited, for 99cents or 99p.

When not writing or researching her books, she enjoys walking, reading, cooking, music, going out with her husband and friends and long languid baths with scented candles (and perhaps chocolate).

Short Blurb

Can a knight and his witch save seven kidnapped maidens? Sir Magnus and Elfrida strive to find the girls, but at what cost to their marriage?

When a shadowy piper kidnaps seven beautiful girls, can a wounded knight and his witch-wife save them? Will Sir Magnus and Elfrida find them in time—and at what cost?

Magnus, the fearless, battered crusader knight, and his fey wife, Elfrida, are happily married, but each of them carries a secret. Elfrida believes that being peasant-born will one day undermine her husband’s love for her. Wounded and scarred, Magnus fears nothing—except, perhaps, that he will not be able to give Elfrida her greatest wish—children.

Their fears are sharpened when high-born Lady Astrid appears at their manor and demands their help to find the seven missing girls. Though the lady clearly regards low-born Elfrida beneath her, why has she truly sought out Magnus, a ruthless knight? Which one of the kidnapped girls does she really want to recover so badly—and to what hidden purpose?

In the scorching summer heat, Magnus and Elfrida search together for the missing girls. Will they be able to rescue them in time? And can their own marriage survive?
