Amelia M. Brown - 2019
Luveday is a researcher and spends most of her time behind a desk or a book. When she is transported to Anora, another world that resembles medieval England, she is at a loss, but she's smart enough to know that a woman on her own has little chances of survival and fewer rights. She finds herself rescued by a knight on his way home to Lander's Keep, and works to make herself indispensable to the castle and it's absent Lord, hoping that she won't be thrown out into the cold before she can find a way home. The King's Champion... Lord Iain De Lane returns home to find his ancestral castle, long neglected, has been transformed and a mysterious lady is responsible. His elderly Aunt, Lady Emmalyn and young Ellie, sing her praises, in fact the whole castle and village have nothing but good to say about her, but the last thing Iain needs is another woman in his life. Especially since, his fiancé, Lady Christabel, has taken up residence unexpectedly, and despite the improvements, they are both finding out that a court favorite is not the proper wife for a northern lord. Still, Iain is locked into a betrothal sanctioned by the King, and he needs the coin to keep his people fed. No matter how appealing Lady Luveday may seem in comparison, he could never choose the penniless noblewoman. As Luveday grows to be more to Iain and his people, it becomes clear that the Lord of the Keep has made a serious mistake in choosing a bride. When the wedding draws near, and the lines between Lord and Lady blur, will Iain follow his heart and marry her or will Luveday need to make a hard choice of her own, and leave the place she loves or risk becoming more than a lost lady, but a fallen one?
