Perhaps you have already viewed the trailer shown below this one.  "Loving the Knight"  is the prequel to Kris's  historical romance, "Loving the Norseman," shown here.  I have thoroughly enjoyed both books set in the ancient Scottish/Norse world.  I hope you'll get the same pleasure from watching her beautiful videos.

Please enjoy this lovely trailer by Kris Tualla, author of the Hansen Series. For those who love historical romance in the Scottish/Norse setting of old, these are must reads.

Just want to share some happy news with my blog family.  This one is really special to me.  My fantasy historical romance, The King's Daughter, has been accepted by Victory Tales Press and will be re-released in February, 2012.  The book will be available in print this time and I will probably put my copy on my pillow and kiss it every night!  Honestly, I'm so in love with this book and hero that it's embarrassing.  What can I say?  It got 5+ reviews out the wazoo, so apparently some other people liked it, too.  If you didn't catch it first time out or want it in print, it will be available in February. 

The book is Book I of the Chronicles of Alcinia, the story of Tarabenthia, born to a dying queen and an ambitious king.  Tia is heir to the throne, but when the idyll of her childhood ends she defies her father, tipping the balance in a world poised on the brink of war--leaving history to judge whether she is heroine or harlot.  In a time of war, what would you sacrifice in the name of love?

Here's a peek at the cover by Laura Shinn:

If you like historical fantasy in settings reminiscent of Ancient Rome and Roman Britain, I hope you'll consider giving this one a try when it's available.  But in any case, enjoy Laura's cover!  :)
