A Note From Author H. L. Burke
Debuting on November 9th, An Ordinary Knight will be on a special pre-order price of 99 cents!
This piece is very near to my heart as an author. This is actually one of my older stories, written well before my currently published books. As a new adult struggling with loneliness, I asked myself, “Well, what is the love story I really want to have?” and from that desire sprang a story of a knight who isn’t flashy, isn’t particularly “charming,” but who has the qualities I so desperately wanted in a life partner: loyalty, honor, kindness. Because while super-human characters are fun to imagine, what really makes a character extraordinary are often the very ordinary things.
I was lucky enough to find my one true love shortly after writing this piece. We’re coming up on our 9th anniversary this year, and my Marine is every inch the Knight I was looking for.
I’ve now polished up this dream of a perfect knight to share with my readers, and I’m so excited to share it with you.
A Fairy Cursed Fable
The Knight and the Fugitive Princess/Knight Less-Charming/Charming Quest: Fairy Cursed Fables book One (still up in the air about that title)…
Stuck in a humiliating position as the Royal Kennel Guard, Sir Percy sees little hope for anything other than an obscure fate. After all, in the Kingdom of Ithelia, you need a fairy to guide you to greatness, and fairies just don’t bother with knights like him.
However, when Percy catches the eyes of the sheltered Princess Matilda, his world expands in new and frightening ways.
A victim of an ill-planned Christening, Matty has spent her life in a locked tower, hiding from pixie attacks. Now she’ll do anything to escape. And if that means dragging Percy along for a cross country search for Prince Charming, so be it.
But not all Prince Charmings are what they seem, and as Matty’s plight grows more desperate, Percy finds himself losing his heart. Does a lowly knight have what it takes to uncurse a princess?
