Hey, Ginger, I actually made it, computer problems and all. Thanks for having so many authors invade your blog.

I have an ebook short story that will be released in April. KNIGHT'S DESIRE takes place in medieval Piemonte. This is the first short story I've ever written and published. It's from The Dark Castle Lords publishers.


Baron Romano DiSanto returns home after his sire's death to straighten affairs. He never intends to stay...until a woman wheedles her way into his castle, pretending to be his maidservant. Soon he is torn between returning to his life as a warrior or giving in to an emotion he has never before experienced.

After her father's death, Mariella Rizzoli is alone and desperate to ensure the family keep remains hers. Past marriageable age, she intends to live out her life in seclusion in the only home she's ever known. But the DiSanto family claims the keep, and the mystery surrounding it drives Mariella to seek employment with the new baron knight, hoping he will sign it over for eternity. Her plan goes awry when Romano discovers her reason for being in his castle. When he bids her to seduce him for the keep, she will do whatever it takes to retain her home. But can she seduce the handsome knight without losing her heart to him?

You can read the first chapter on my website: www.jcortipetska.com.
