Marewyn and King Jann meet in medieval England, where their love grows from the seeds of deep friendship. After a platonic courtship, Jann moves Marewyn to his Castle Pioneer on Samso Island in Denmark. Memories of their past lives explode, and the couple learns they’ve been soul mates for eternity.
But his estranged queen on the mainland decides to make life difficult and moves back into the castle, triggering royal trouble. Marewyn refuses to hide or accept abuse from the Queen. The drama builds when Jann turns his back on Marewyn, forcing her into the arms of Erick, a Viking ship commander and Jann‘s friend.
Will Jann continue to live unhappily with his difficult wife, or will he follow his heart and find Marewyn, his true queen?
Author May Water brings to vivid life a yesteryear world, set during the Middle Ages, of life, love and a shared destiny.
It's a haunting love story about the recognition and the coming together of soul mates. Bound as they are to each other through past lives, theirs is a tale of love’s ecstasy found, the unbearable shattering of love lost and the hopeful, thrilling intensity of love found again. They are Marewyn and King Jann, and their entwined destiny and the telling of it, will keep you mesmerized from the first pages to the final chapters!
Beautifully written, the prose is engrossing and historical buffs will love the attention to detail and dramatic accuracy. You’ll taste the crisp Nordic air, smell the waters and hear the creak and slapping of oars from the Viking long boat as they dip and rise to the rhythmic chanting of the rowers.
Fall into a time when women were little more than chattel and an affair of the heart could turn the sympathies of a people against a beloved King. Ache with the lovers when a bitter and joyless Queen takes exception to her husband's growing infatuation and infidelity, and like ‘hell hath no fury like a woman scorned', plans her revenge.
Ms. Water creates a timeless tale of love, deliciously seductive, wonderfully erotic and guaranteed to have you clamoring for more of her work! Be sure to grab your copy and get ready for a treat!
