When Siri de Calendri’s brother dies, his will sends her from Venice and the medieval illuminating workshop she loves to the guardianship of Sir Triston de Brielle. She hopes to find employment in an illuminator’s shop— until Triston unexpectedly snatches her heart away with a kiss. Triston is a man of quiet honor, but the guilt he carries for the death of his wife has left him hesitant to love again. Siri is determined not to be cast off and not to live in another woman’s shadow. She has illuminated many a priceless book with pen and paint, but can her own vibrant spirit illuminate the darkness in Triston’s soul and make his heartbeat for her alone? $0.99 on Kindle.
