Catherine KeanAward-winning author Catherine Kean’s love of history began with visits to England during summer vacation, when she was in her early teens.

After she married a tall, handsome, and charming Brit and moved to Florida, she started writing novels, her lifelong dream. She wrote her first medieval romance, A Knight’s Vengeance, while her baby daughter was napping. Catherine’s books were originally published in paperback and have been translated into several foreign languages. She has won numerous awards for her stories, including the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence. Her novels also finaled in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and the National Readers’ Choice Awards.

Catherine also writes award-winning contemporary romances under the pseudonym Cate Lord. When not working on her next book, she enjoys cooking, baking, browsing antique shops, walking on the nature trail, shopping with her daughter, and gardening. She lives in Florida with her husband, teenage daughter, and two spoiled rescue cats.

A Knight's Reward by Catherine KeanA KNIGHT’S REWARD (Knight’s Series Book 2)

When Gisela Anne Balewyne comes face to face with handsome knight Dominic de Terre, she fears her dangerous secrets have caught up with her. The small town of Clovebury seemed the perfect place to hide from her abusive husband, raise her young son, and earn a living as a tailor while she saved to move north and start a new life. Seeing Dominic–the lord she loved and then lost when he went on crusade–renews her desire for him, but she can never be with him again, and not just because she’s a commoner and he’s a nobleman. Loving him would mean risking too much, including his life.

Dominic is on a crucial mission for Lord Geoffrey de Lanceau: to find out who stole de Lanceau’s cloth shipment, worth a fortune. Dominic is stunned to see Gisela, the only woman he’s ever loved. She’s changed, though, from the passionate, sensual woman he knew. He vows not only to succeed in his mission, but to win her heart forever–goals that endanger them all, especially when Dominic learns she’s being paid to sew clothes from some of the stolen silks. As he unravels her shocking secrets and learns the truth about her little boy, he could lose all that’s dear to him–or win a knight’s greatest reward.

my lady's treasureMY LADY’S TREASURE

The moment widowed Lady Faye Rivellaux sees the tall, commanding warrior riding toward her, she senses the danger in him–a powerful sensuality that she has never experienced before, especially not in her marriage bed. Fighting her unexpected desire, she clings to her promise to rescue the kidnapped little girl she loves as her own. When he demands a ransom she cannot meet, she offers her one last hope: a gold cup.

Former crusading knight Brant Meslarches never expected the widow he was ordered to meet to be a tempting beauty. Nor did he expect to see such a chalice. Worth a small fortune, it’s proof that a lost treasure of the legendary Celtic King Arthur does exist–as Brant’s murdered brother believed. Of all things, the lady has offered Brant the one means to redeem his terrible past.

He makes her a deal: he will help her find the little girl, if she will help him locate the treasure. Faye is uneasy about an alliance with the handsome, scarred rogue, especially when he stirs up strong yearnings within her. Yet, she has no other way to find the missing child. Risking all, she joins Brant’s quest, and as the passion they’ve both denied flares between them, they find a treasure worth more than gold.

Awards for My Lady’s Treasure:
* Reviewer’s Choice Award, Love Romances
