Jousting, Romance, & Modern Day Knights in Shining Armor


   How do you navigate the path between responsibility, love and your wildest dreams? Josephine Bowen is at a crossroads in her life, graduating college and looking forward to her future. But when an unexpected opportunity falls in her lap, Jo veers away from the sensible road she has always walked for a once in a lifetime adventure. Learning to joust like the knights she has admired since childhood proves a test of her mettle in ways she never imagines, facing opponents on and off the field. She finds an adversary in herself and others, as well as an unexpected friendship. Add in a horse who desperately needs her love and understanding, and Jo has a struggle on her hands that quickly accelerates to adrenaline spiking proportions. Yet, when your destination is knighthood, that is all part of the journey.


Josephine Bowen is a strong willed woman with a sword sharp wit, stainless loyalty, and a priceless heart. After enduring a host of physical and emotional challenges in order to become a modern day jouster, she’s finally earned her knighthood. Now, it’s time to go on the road with the Gallant Company to earn her keep. She faces both bodily injury and the doubts of outsiders as her jousting skills are tested and honed. Strengthening her relationship with both her horse and her best friend (who is perhaps something more) proves riddled with challenges and tears. Yet, no matter the trials before her, she continues to surprise, because if jousting has taught her anything it's that some things are worth the risk.


Josephine Bowen and Bartholomew Clark have been trading blows to each other’s hearts since the very first moment they met. Through it all, an intense friendship and their mutual love of horses have just drawn them closer together.


Now, they’ve got one last big jousting show to put on, in front of the largest audience Jo’s ever experienced, and it’s time for Rowan to take his place in the Gallant Company of Knights as a real war horse.


Shadows will be cast on the truest hearts Jo has ever known. There will be fights and falls before all is said and done. Family and friends will both help and hinder. But in the end, love and gravity can only be resisted for so long.

Special On Fire edition available through the author!



Come along for the ride in book four of the Gallant Hearts series, the conclusion of Josephine Bowen and Bartholomew Clark’s tale of chasing dreams and finding love. It’s also the beginning for their brother and Captain, Aaron Drew.  


Love has been declared, intentions have been stated, but our heroes still have quite the journey ahead of them! Gallant Company has preparations to make before they can travel across the country for an international jousting tournament. Bart has rust to knock off before he’s ready to hit the lysts in earnest, facing down each member of the Company to prepare for the coming competition. Including his beloved. Jo must charm the eccentric metalsmith tasked with creating her armor, and help Bart face down his worries, even as she builds on her own strengths as a jouster.


Excitement awaits them in California, their love intensifying with every trial they face. They have so much to learn, about each other, and their horses. Family, friends old and new, and an all too familiar adversary from the past mean that the jousting counts among the simplest of their challenges. Even their stalwart Captain feels the strain, proving that no one goes untouched in this Tournament of Hearts.

No one would ever question the noble heart of Sir Aaron Drew, Captain of the Gallant Company of Knights. He has given everything to see his jousting troupe succeed, focusing on the storms buffeting him for so long, he’s lost sight of anything else. After all, he grew up learning to set aside his own wants for the sake of family. Within the brotherhood of Gallant Company, he can do no less. In the process, he’s lost sight of his own heart, but the time has come to open his eyes again.

Like a soaking rain after a long drought, Jaqueline Sauveterre rolls in, washing Aaron’s vision clean. She has her own goals as a competitive carriage driver, is as ambitious as Aaron himself has ever been. Jaque’s softness and passion for her own horse is a timely reminder of who he once wished to be, even as she struggles with her own demons. It doesn’t take long before he starts to fall for her, in a way far more terrifying than coming off his jousting horse at a high rate of speed.

Putting your heart to the hazard is no easy thing. Bones and bruises mend more easily than broken hearts. But if you take the chance and risk it all, you might come through stronger than you’ve ever been before.
