The Crown RoseBook - 2005
The year is 1240. It is the reign of King Louis IX. The Crown Rose portrays the mystery of one man who enters the life of Isabelle of France, born heir to the throne. He becomes her icon, her soul's other half, and her destiny--a man who may, in fact, be far more than an ordinary man. His bloodline goes back to the Holy Land, and he is far, far older than he appears. The Crown Rose weaves its tale around the actual events of the time, blending historical realism with a hint of the fantastic. Over a year was spent researching the period to make the story as accurate as possible. It is a tale of chivalry, knighthood, romance, and war, and lost secrets and hidden mysteries; of honor, duty, and sacrifice, and the power of a few dedicated people to change the face of the world itself.
