New Book Release: The Castilian Pomegranate

Please join me in congratulating Anna Belfrage on the publication of her newest historical novel, The Castilian Pomegranate, book two in the Castilian Saga. I had the privilege of providing Anna with some copyediting assistance. Here's the book description:

An enraged and grieving queen commands them to retrieve her exquisite jewel and abandon their foundling brat overseas—or never return

Robert FitzStephan and his wife, Noor, have been temporarily exiled. Officially, they are to travel to the courts of Aragon and Castile as emissaries of Queen Eleanor of England. Unofficially, the queen demands two things: that they abandon Lionel, their foster son, in foreign lands and that they bring back a precious jewelthe Castilian Pomegranate.

Noor would rather chop off a foot than leave Lionel in a foreign land—especially as he’s been entrusted to her by his dead father, the last true prince of Wales. And as to the jewel, stealing it would mean immediate execution . . .

Spain in 1285 is a complicated place. France has launched a crusade against Aragon, and soon enough Robert is embroiled in the conflict, standing side by side with their Aragonese hosts.

Once in Castile, it is the fearsome Moors that must be fought, with Robert facing weeks separated from his young wife, a wife who is enthralled by the Castilian court—and a particular Castilian gallant.

Jealousy, betrayal and a thirst for revenge plunge Noor and Robert into life-threatening danger.

Will they emerge unscathed or will savage but beautiful Castile leave them permanently scarred and damaged?

The Castilian Pomegranate is available now in ebook and print formats on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit Anna's website for more information on all of her books and her fantastic historical blog posts.
