Unkissable Knight by Anna Markland. Historical Romance Release & ARC Review.

Add To

Dervenn de Roure is a celebrated hero of the Battle of Hastings, the same conflict that left Victorine de Toeni orphaned and facing poverty when her father’s wealth is inherited by a distant male cousin. She must marry to survive. Dervenn's scarred face bears testimony to his sacrifice, but the haughty Victorine cannot overlook the fact he is a Breton, not a Norman.

As Yuletide celebrations progress, it might take the scheming of an unlikely matchmaker like William the Conqueror to make her see Dervenn is the man she needs.

Originally published in the Under the Kissing Bough anthology


It's the end of the year 1066 William is King and he is busy rewarding those he feels deserve it most with land in Britain and marriages. 
After the deaths of her father and brothers,  Victorine de Toeni and several other orphaned Ladies are taken under the guardianship of King William.  He will find worthy husbands for them. 
Battle scarred Sir Dervenn de Roure is escorting the orphans to William.  He knows that he can have one of them as a wife, but will not force anyone to look at his ugly face everyday. 
In this medieval romance we have an entitled and arrogant heroine and a sensitive and intelligent hero.  
A lovely look into the lives of our characters and what could be the beginning of a dynasty.  
A very enjoyable story.  


I’m a Canadian author with a keen interest in genealogy. I write medieval romance about family honour, ancestry, and roots. My novels are intimate love stories full of passion and adventure.

Passion conquers whatever obstacles a hostile medieval world can throw in its path. My page-turning adventures have earned me a place on Amazon’s All-Star list.

Besides writing, I have two addictions-crosswords and genealogy, probably the reason I love research. I am a fool for cats. My husband is an entrepreneur who is fond of boasting he’s never had a job.

I live on Canada’s scenic west coast now, but I was born and raised in the UK and I love breathing life into the history of my homeland.
