Saving PrincesseseBook - 2013
In the first three books of this series, the young porter, Raynar, survived the battle of Stamford bridge and the battle of Hastings road, and fell in love with a fleeing Saxon princess. Now he must save her and get her far away from William the Conqueror and his rapist knights. In the first three books, the elder Raynar has gotten away with killing King William Rufus, and has arranged for the bowmen of the Hood to be recruited into King Henry's archers in return for a pardon. Now that Henry has English bows protecting him, he can announce his betrothal to a Scottish Saxon princess. Raynar must keep her safe from the Norman Barons long enough to attend her own wedding and coronation. About The Author Skye Smith is my pen name. My ancestors were miners and shepherds near Castleton in the Peaks District of Derbyshire. I have been told by some readers that this series reminds them of Bernard Cornwell's historical novels, and have always been delighted by the comparison. This is the fourth of my Hoodsman series of books, and you should read the first "Killing Kings" before you read this book. All of the books contain two timelines linked by characters and places. The "current" story is set in the era of King Henry I in the 1100's, while the longer "flashback" story is set in the era of King William I after 1066.I have self-published twelve "The Hoodsman ..." books and they are:1. Killing Kings2. Hunting Kings3. Frisians of the Fens4. Saving Princesses5. Blackstone Edge6. Ely Wakes7. Courtesans and Exiles8. The Revolt of the Earls9. Forest Law10. Queens and Widows11. Popes and Emperors12. The Second Invasion. --Provided by publisher.
