Loving Lucianna (A Hearts In Autumn Romance) By Joyce DiPastena

Sir Balduin de Soler gave up long ago on love. He never had the means to

support a wife until an unexpected advancement in his fifties allows him

to reassess his future just as the lovely Lucianna enters his life.

Lucianna Fabio harbors a secret, painful memory from her past that has

kept her unwed, as well. Now in her forties, she thought herself too old to

marry until she meets Sir Balduin. Now suddenly their lonely autumn

lives feel very much like spring again . . . until Lucianna’s brother appears

without warning and threatens to revive the secret that will destroy

Lucianna’s second chance at love.

“Loving Lucianna" is the first in my new “Hearts in Autumn” romance

series, medieval romances revolving around heroes and heroines “in the

autumn of their years.” Because you’re never too old to fall in love!”

I absolutely loved this book couldn't put it down and in the end when she is explaining everything about her past i teared up.

 Lucianna is an amazing character that you cannot help but love even when she is berating Sir Balduin for all his mistakes. She has such a wild fiery temper that she reminds me of myself and how I react to men.Great story line and amazing characters i connected so well with as if I was right there with them. Story was gripping and just couldn't stop reading it.

5 stars

Joyce DiPastena dreamed of green medieval forests while growing up in

the dusty copper mining town of Kearny, Arizona. She filled her medieval

hunger by reading the books of Thomas B. Costain (where she fell in love

with King Henry II of England), and later by attending the University of

Arizona where she graduated with a degree in history, specializing in the

Middle Ages. The university was also where she completed her first full-

length novel...set, of course, in medieval England. Later, her fascination

with Henry II led her to expand her research horizons to the far reaches of

his "Angevin Empire" in France, which became the setting of her first

published novel, Loyalty's Web (a 2007 Whitney Award Finalist).

Joyce is a multi-published, multi-award winning author who specializes in

sweet medieval romances heavily spiced with mystery and adventure. She

lives with her two cats, Clio and Glinka Rimsky-Korsokov, in Mesa,
