Rachel Rossanoabout this book: Written in an attempt to write more historically accurate fiction, "Word and Deed" is a fast paced short story filled with mystery, romance, and a bit of action.
Verity knows something that could get her killed. Her half-brother, Verdon, sells her hand in marriage to the highest bidder. a stranger with a scary reputation, but Verity doubts Verdon will let her leave his control alive. As the marriage date and her betrothed's arrival approaches, Verity tries to convince her betrothed's messenger that things are not as they seem.
A sharp jolt of mystery, murder, and romance in a medieval setting, this short story is a clean/sweet romance.
I am usually a fantasy writer because it requires less research. The fantasy genre only requires the writer remain within their own rules. Writing strictly historical requires fitting the setting, dress, manner, and props into a pre-made framework. Although I did this, I forgot something that many historical fiction readers insist on, a specific time and place. The places I mentioned in the story are purely fictional. I hoped that my readers would forgive my vagueness about the exact year and country in their enjoyment of the story itself.
