As a child, Lucianna was left at a monastery and was raised by the nuns that lived there. Another young girl, Elisabetta, was sent to be raised and receive an education from the nuns as well. These two unlikely girls became friends. Now an adult, Lucianna works as the servant of her friend, Elisabetta, and her friend’s daughter,Siri, forming a strong bond of friendship. Recently Lucianna’s friend has died and now she just takes care of the daughter.
Lucianna thought that she had long ago lost her chance at love and marriage, but much to her delight, Sir Balduin de Soler, has courted her and wants to marry her. One day Lucianna’s blackmailing brother returns to her life, wreaking havoc. Lucianna is petrified of what her brother will do. Will he ruin her last chance at love? Will Sir de Soler still want her in the end after knowing what she has done?
Medieval author and 2007 Whitney Award Finalist for her book Loyalty’s Web, author Joyce DiPastena’s novels never disappoint. With a degree in history and specialization in medieval England, Joyce understands how to craft an engaging, enchanting, and adventurous historical, medieval, romance novel. From page one she takes readers on a journey to a land far away in the past where lords and ladies rule the land and have knights who protect them and minstrels who sing to them. This book is the first novel in the A Hearts in Autumn Romance Series. More novels about those who think they are too old to find love, but have a chance at it are sure to come.

Thank you so much for this kind review of "Loving Lucianna!" I'm so happy that you enjoyed it. "Courting Cassandry" will hopefully be available in late 2015 (or early 2016). I'm enjoying exploring this new world of older heroes and heroines. Truly, it is never too late to fall in love!
