Today is release day for Ruthless Knight, Book 2 of my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series. Right now it is only 99 cents (KU reads free) but the price will be changing to $3.99 soon. My hero, Rook, is one of the bastard triplets of King Edward III. Rook and his brothers have vowed vengeance against the man who ordered their deaths at birth.
Back in medieval times, twins and triplets were considered a curse and not a blessing. Some thought the woman to have laid with more than one man if she birthed more than one child at a time. Either way, twins and triplets were always considered unlucky. They were thought to have been spawned by the devil and that bad luck would come to those who had ties to twins or triplets. (I am not sure if triplets were actually seen in medieval times, but I like to be unique so you will find them in my story.)
Sometimes the first born was kept and the other twin killed. Sometimes they were all killed. And if one was left-handed, (like my hero) that was said to be devilish as well. If you read the prequel to my Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series, Destiny’s Kiss, you will find out the events that lead up to the birth of the triplets – their mother having been a twin. If you’ve missed Book 1, Restless Sea Lord, you will want to pick up a copy of that as well. The books all stand alone, but are best read in order if possible so no surprises will be ruined. Watch for Reckless Highlander – Book 3, coming this spring.
