Serafina Laurel is recently widowed. Her elderly husband left her a vast estate, run by the late lord’s greedy brother. He offers Lady Sera as the bride-prize at Laureldon’s annual jousting tournament.
Aethan Taiga, the unclaimed bastard of a lord, leads a restless life between two worlds–treated as a commoner by the nobles, mocked as ‘his lordship’ by his peers. He’s bound by a vow of retribution and travels far in pursuit of his mother’s killer.
Lady Sera is fascinated by the stranger. When Aethan ignites her passion, she tries to convince him to stay. Another suitor plots to divide the pair, while Aethan is torn between his mission and his hopeless love for a woman beyond his reach.
Author Luca Thrace never misses an episode of Game of Thrones, and drew inspiration for her brooding hero from Jon Snow. The Bastard’s Blade is a medieval romance with fantasy elements where plot twists abound. If you’re looking for captivating characters, realistic dialogue, and elegantly written sensuality in an action-packed story, you’ll love The Bastard’s Blade.
