From the Author

Q & A with Elizabeth Cole

Q: Why write a medieval romance?

Elizabeth: Because I adore the medieval era. In school, it was one my favorite subjects. I studied the literature of the time, from Beowulf on up to Chaucer. I read Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People for fun. I can recite the Lord's Prayer in Old English (I expect that will come in handy when I build my time machine). Basically, I trained for years in order to be able to write romance novels about this rich and ridiculously exciting time period. Honor & Roses is the first in a series called Swordcross Knights, because I can't stop at just one.

Q: When is Honor & Roses set?

Elizabeth: It begins in 1140 CE, which is more or less the "late early middle ages." For instance, my knights wear chain mail, not the plate mail of the later middle ages. In Britain, where the story takes place, this is the very beginning of the period known as "The Anarchy". The death of King Henry sparked a succession crisis, when two cousins both fought for the throne. The war didn't last forever, but even after it was resolved, things were messy. The "Anarchy" was not just a clever name. It was a turbulent period full of intrigue and danger...perfect for a romance.

Q: I thought medieval women basically had no rights. How is that romantic?

Elizabeth: Women have faced countless challenges throughout history, right up to today. During this time, there were a lot of rules and customs governing the behavior of proper ladies. Arranged marriages were also very common, especially among the upper classes. But when have rules ever stopped a romantic heroine? My heroines find ways to follow their hearts, no matter how many obstacles are put in their way. And I think throughout history, there have been plenty of examples of subversive woman. Those are my favorites.

Q: Who should pick up this book?

Elizabeth: Anyone who loves historical romance but wants to escape the ballroom. It's fine to dance a quadrille or sip tea with the ladies, but sometimes you just want to lay siege to a castle, right? Medieval Britain is such a wonderful setting. I want reading Honor & Roses to feel just like stepping into a world of stained glass and glinting swords, where chivalry lives on and love never dies.
