Award-winning author Ruth Kaufman publishes two versions of the same book to target two romance genres.
CHICAGO, Illinois (12-17-2014)
On January 14, 2015, award-winning author Ruth Kaufman publishes two versions of At His Command, her romance novel set in late medieval England. One version, inspirational, is mild or sweet with a faith element, and features the heroine on the cover. The hero is on the cover of the historical romance version, which opens the bedroom door and doesn’t have a faith element.
“I believe I’m the first author to target inspirational and non-inspirational romance readers at the same time. One group prefers romances to be sweet or mild with faith journeys for the hero and heroine. The other prefers hotter books and isn’t interested in books where faith plays a significant role,” Kaufman says. “This story, about a young widow who wants to defy the king’s command to marry the man he chooses and the battle-weary knight sent to protect her from undesirable suitors, works well in both sub-genres.”
E-books are available for pre-order on Amazon.com. The historical romance version is at http://amzn.to/1yZFJvh, and the inspirational version is at http://amzn.to/1vEC8my.
At His Command-Inspirational Version
Can love and faith surmount duty and royal commands?
England 1453: Sir Nicholas Gray planned to go on a pilgrimage after fighting the French, but King Henry VI sends him to protect the recently widowed Lady Amice Winfield from undesirable suitors. Though Nicholas intrigues her, Amice yearns to run Castle Rising without a man’s control. Mutual interest and affection grows, yet serving opposing factions seeking to rule England threatens to pull them apart.
At court, the king and queen reject Amice’s pleas and choose a new husband, a highly-ranked lord who’ll provide political connections and coin for the king’s depleted coffers that Nicholas cannot. How can she follow the king’s command when she’s a scribe for his rival, who she believes should rule? How can she marry another man when she’s falling in love with Nicholas?
