Have you read the Graistan Chronicles, a medieval series by Denise Domning?

This series is not new by any means, but it is now available in kindle at a very affordable price. Besides, if you haven't read it, it's new to you. Denise Domning is an expert in the Middle Ages. She was successfully published in medieval romance with large publishers when I was struggling with my first book. She inspired me to write gritty characters, and to do exacting research. She was a medievalist even before she wrote her first novel. Here is an overview of her Graistan Chronicles series:

The Graistan Chronicles, 1194-1197 (sometimes known as the Seasons series)

WINTER'S HEAT: Winter’s Heat - A powerful baron forced to marry for want of an heir. A woman's expectation to rule an abbey torn from her. Now, a tide of treachery rises around them and their only hope is to trust, to cherish and to love unconditionally.

"Splendid...A superstar in the making" -Romantic Times


SUMMER'S STORM: Summer’s Storm

In a world where folk are either common or noble, this knight is neither and both. When he finds the only woman who is his equal, he takes her from her abusive husband knowing they will pay the ultimate price for what he dares. On that day can she find the courage to defy death and reach for the happiness that is her true legacy?

SPRING'S FURY Spring’s Fury

A woman trained to wield a sword, plotting revenge against the man who killed her sire. A knight, claiming her land as his own. If they are to survive the hungry season it will take every bit of his talent for taming wild creatures.

"Ms. Domning's mastery of the time is evident in this sparkling medieval jewel. Denise Domning directs a riveting presentation of rollicking action with a marvelous cast of characters in a superb plot line, headlining two unforgettable lovers that are sure to find a lasting place in your heart. Denise Domning's impressive talent for mesmerizing her readers leaves them dreaming long after the last page."---Lori Wright -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc.

AUTUMN'S FLAMEAutumn’s Flame

One pregnant widow trapped in the sheriff's care and grieving for the frail son torn from her arms. A knight, scarred in body and soul, and a wee lass who has lost all hope and heart. They must learn to trust again if they are to save themselves from those plotting to destroy them.

"Domning has done an incredible job of giving the reader a true flavor of medieval life..."

A LOVE FOR ALL SEASONS A Love for All Seasons
From Library Journal: Summoned home from her convent refuge by her greedy, vindictive husband, Johanna of Stanrudde is stunned to find her town starving, herself accused of adultery, and her husband plotting the destruction of the only man she's ever loved. Strong, vivid writing and compelling characters quickly pull readers into the harsh reality of 12th-century Britain, and a multilayered plot and well-handled sexual tension keep them entranced. In the fifth and final volume of her "Seasons" series, Domning (Autumn's Flame, Topaz, 1995) uses dual time periods in alternating (and somewhat confusing) chapters to provide a well-researched, intensely sensual story of the medieval merchant class that nicely completes the set. Domning lives in Scottsdale, Arizona.
