Hello, lovelies welcome to a feature I am going to have on La Jersey Chika Reads Indie Books that is called Indie Author Spotlight. Each month I will post an Indie Author Spotlight to help spread the word about the works of the fantastic indie authors that are out there!

Monica Bentley makes history sexy.

Monica is a lover of history, historical romance, and a thumping good yarn.  Whether consulting ancient authorities such as Aristotle, medieval chroniclers like Froissart or spelunking modern questions with the Encyclop├ędistes, when it comes to crossed swords, court politics, and wounded hearts, she never fails to swoon with abandon.  We invite you to swoon with her.

Monica Bentley makes history sexy.

France, 1355

The Count of Brionde continues his endless game of cat and mouse with the French king, Jean le Bon. In the forests surrounding the chateau, however, lurks the armed band of legendary condotierre leader Bertrand du Guesclin.

Inside the chateau, the Guard practice daily, preparing for the inevitable attack. The youngest member, Louis - ward to the master of the Guard – dreams of becoming a true warrior.

He also dreams of the kitchen scamp Phoebe, who grows more beautiful with each passing day.

Young love's first blush finds these two resourceful orphans relying on each other when no one else trusts their lowly position.

When the fateful battle finally arrives, choosing whom to trust means life or death.

Inspired by historical events, Chateau of Desire helps us escape to an earlier time in this unforgettable coming of age tale of love, trust and resilience.

For mature readers only.
Thank you for posting this in your Indie Author Spotlight!
