I received my 18th acceptance of the year this afternoon. This one's for a story I think is an alternative history mystery. Or, maybe, sword and sorcery with no sorcery.

Coming April 25 from Deep Desires Press:

One Knight with the Swordsmith's Daughter.

All the women of Miriam’s village lust after Sir Humphrey of Fox Glen, newly arrived to attend to his aging uncle, Sir Edmund, Earl of Northwoods Shire. When the young knight commissions a new side arm from her father the swordsmith, Miriam discovers why.

Unable to reveal to anyone that she actually smiths the swords her father sells, and unable to reveal her own carnal desire for the young knight, Miriam listens to the village women’s bawdy comments about Sir Humphrey yet keeps her thoughts to herself, until a chance meeting at the waterfall where she bathes changes her life.

Miriam finds herself keeping more secrets than any woman should. But if she gets too close to Sir Humphrey, it might mean revealing her family’s secret. Does she dare risk her family’s heritage just to quench the fire in her loins?

Order from Amazon, from Smashwords, or the publisher.
