Lindsay Townsend

Author Lindsay Townsendabout this book: Edith is a serf, a peasant-woman and a female smith. Sir Ranulf is a knight, a widower haunted by loss. He is sick of jousts and the facile, glittering world of tournaments. When these two encounter each other it means the start of something new - and dangerous - for them both.

I set the novel 'To Touch the Knight' during the time of the Black Death. This was a period of great suffering and fear, when people believed the end of the word was coming, but for some it was also a time of opportunity. Edith, my hardy female smith, has lost her faith in the medieval church, but she seizes the chances that the pestilence gives her, although it involves a lethal deception on her part.

As a fake princess, Edith wins a new life for herself and her fellow villagers. But when Ranulf discovers what she has done, will he forgive her?

Reviews

• The Pen and Muse
"With a cast of strong characters, Townsend will blow you away with To Touch the Knight. Townsend's historical romance is down right delicious read..."

• Romance Junkies
"You will fall in love with the sensuous, but sweet interactions between Sir Ranulf and the mysterious princess as their story takes us on a journey through one of the most horrific times in history. A definite must read..."

• All About Romance
"The whole "heroine masquerading as someone else" plot device has been done to death, oftentimes in such a silly manner that it is impossible to take the story seriously. Edith's deceit, though, worked for me because a) there was a real element of danger involved, and c) she does an excellent job of remaining in character."
