On a vacation to England last summer, one of the highlights was a visit to Bamburgh Castle, the inspiration for Kenshire Castle, the seat of the Casier and now Waryn family in the Border Series historical romance.

My pleasure! Medieval is definitely a niche (and not for everyone) but they are so much fun. :)

Good luck in the giveaway!
