Medieval Monday ~ Judith Sterling’s Soul of the Wolf

I love this cover! Greetings, gods and goddesses. Please welcome Judith Sterling to the forest.  Born in that sauna called Florida, Judith craved cooler climes, and once the travel bug bit, she lived in England, Scotland, Sweden, Wisconsin, Virginia, and on the island of Nantucket. This wanderlust combines with Judith’s love of history and passion for the paranormal to infuse everything she writes. Did I mention how much I love the cover? Here is the hero and heroine’s first encounter from her #MedievalRomance, Soul of the Wolf.

She hesitated and listened.  The man spoke.  The bird uttered a series of notes as though chuckling.  The man spoke again.

She frowned.  Were they conversing?  Absurd.  Perhaps the man recited poetry.  If so, what bird on earth would respond to it?

Whether verse or vernacular, the language was foreign.  ’Twas likely the Saxon tongue.

There was nothing to do but obey her curiosity.  She took a deep breath and crept to the hill’s peak.

Follow along next week at Jenna Jaxon’s blog.

BLURB:  A Norman loyalist, Lady Jocelyn bristles when ordered to marry Wulfstan, a Saxon sorcerer. She nurses a painful secret and would rather bathe in a cesspit than be pawed by such a man…until her lifelong dream of motherhood rears its head.

A man of magic and mystery, Wulfstan has no time for wedded bliss. He fears that consummating their marriage will bind their souls and wrench his focus from the ancient riddle his dying mother begged him to solve. He’s a lone wolf, salving old wounds with endless work. But Jocelyn stirs him as no woman ever has.

Their attraction is undeniable. Their fates are intertwined. Together, they must face their demons and bring light to a troubled land.

Medieval Monday ~ Why Judith Sterling Writes #Medieval #Romance

I’m so excited today to have a first time visitor to the forest, Judith Sterling. Judith’s love of history and passion for the paranormal infuse everything she writes. Born in that sauna called Florida, she craved cooler climes, and once the travel bug bit, she lived in England, Scotland, Sweden, Wisconsin, Virginia, and on the island of Nantucket. She currently lives in Salem, Massachusetts. Here’s what she has to say about writing Medieval Romance.

Some of the first romances I read as a teen were set in medieval England.  I loved the passion of the period—the High Middle Ages (11th – 13th centuries) in particular—and the lure of the British Isles.  Ultimately, that love led to a degree in history and a minor in British Studies.Some of the first romances I read as a teen were set in medieval England.  I loved the passion of the period—the High Middle Ages (11th – 13th centuries) in particular—and the lure of the British Isles.  Ultimately, that love led to a degree in history and a minor in British Studies.

During college and grad school, I studied in England, Scotland, and Sweden.  I jumped on every opportunity to explore castles, monasteries, and other medieval buildings throughout Europe.  The older the structure, the better!  In ruin after ruin, the whispers of the past seduced me.  I hear their voices still.  With any luck, they add a magical twist to the medieval romances I feel compelled to write and give my readers a world they’ll want to enter again and again.

BIO:  Flight of the Raven and Soul of the Wolf are part of Judith Sterling’s medieval romance series, The Novels of Ravenwood. The Cauldron Stirred, the first book in her young adult paranormal series, Guardians of Erin, will be released soon.  Written under Judith Marshall, her nonfiction books—My Conversations with Angels and Past Lives, Present Stories—have been translated into multiple languages. She has an MA in linguistics and a BA in history, with a minor in British Studies.
