Twist Of Honor

A historical romance by Karin Welss, who makes up half of the Michaela August writing team.

“His design was strictly honorable: to rob a lady of her fortune by way of marriage.” (Henry Fielding, Tom Jones)

It’s the spring of 1666, and Antonia, the newly-widowed Countess of Cranbourne, is fending off fortune-hunters and the King’s marriage schemes.

Enter her new bodyguard, Kit Fitzgeorge, a handsome soldier of fortune torn between his growing attraction to Antonia, and his entanglement with a ruthless nobleman who holds Kit’s daughter hostage…and who wants the countess for himself.

“Karin Welss gives her story freshness by placing it in a new setting, and by giving to her hero and heroine a humanity which we feel instantly.” –Joy Calderwood, Reviewers Choice

“…enthralled and floored this reader…a new author who really wows me..It’s a story that will stay in my heart for a long time. Brava!
– Amy Cunningham, Romance Reviews Today

“****…a very good novel that’s true to the time period and gives a great sense of being there. The portrayal of a scarred heroine and an injured hero is skillfully done and creates a wonderfully involving romantic story.” –Romantic Times Magazine
