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.
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,
