The newest installment of my best selling Inspirational Medieval series- The ChristKeepers is now available for pre-order. It will be released this Friday- July 23rd.
If you liked the previous novels in this series, you will love this one. It’s the story of Magnus, Earl of Windham [he’s Faith MacAllister’s blacksmith-turned aristocrat brother] and the virgin widow Hope of Windham.
There’s loads of passion, angst, adventure, and a truly uplifting Gospel message in this book. If you like your Christian fiction with some real chemistry between the hero and heroine, you’ll be happy with Hope’s Reward.
Just thought I’d put a link out to the preorder site for MM. I’ve had some folks wanting to know if they could go ahead and preorder so they’ll be the first ones to get their copies. So if you go here: MM Preorder you can snag yours.
I’m watching the sun come up over the bay. It’s so beautiful! Wish I could bottle it up and send some to you 🙂
I love to throw themed dinners for family and friends. We’ve done a Bible Feast for Easter one year, a Greek Celebration, and an Authentic Italian Party for 35 of our Sunday School buddies.
So in honor of the third installment of The ChristKeepers , Magpie’s Masque – release date June, 1st, I thought I’d give a link for a great download from fellow author Ginger Garret for hosting a Medieval Feast.
She’s got tips and recipes and loads of other fun stuff to help you throw a great historical party. Even though the Tudor Era is a little further down the timeline than The ChristKeepers setting, most all the elements of the feast would likely be the same. So with a tip of my hat to Ginger, I pass along her download link: Medieval Feast

Life always gets so exciting for me when I get to the one month release count down for a new book. I’m feeling it already for Magpie’s Masque, the third installment of The ChristKeepers series.
I’ve been deep in Medieval London and Scotland all winter. It’s always a wild ride to see where the characters are going to take you. And Rafe and Magpie were especially adventurous.
They veered off outline so much I got to the last three chapters and had to do a rewrite of the first half of the book. But it made for a much tighter read. I’m really pleased with this story and hope you will be too.
I got to see a preview of the book trailer last night. It’s pretty crazy to see your novel interpreted through visual media. I was impressed by how it gave a teaser for the book in under two minutes.
As the release date approaches for Magpie’s Masque, I will be telling more details of the story and even offering a free chapter on my website. But until then, I will let you know that Rafe and Magpie share some unforgettable moments- heartbreaking, romantic, & spiritual.
I’ll be writing more as the release date nears. LNF, Grace
The third installment of my Medieval Inspirational Romance Series, The ChristKeepers, will be released June 1st. Here is the cover. Thanks to wonderful cover artist Amy DeLoach. The book trailer will be up on my You Tube channel by the middle of the month.
This novel is Magpie’s and Rafe’s story. There will be a free chapter to read up on http://www.gracewalton.com the last week of May to whet your appetite.
My newest Medieval, Magpie’s Masque, is getting into the homestretch of publishing. I do love the ChristKeepers series and especially all the interesting characters. And I especially love getting to spend some time in Medieval England and Scotland during the writing of them. The other night I was saying my bedtime prayers, in my mind, and I realized I was using that specific Medieval cadence I write in for this series! I’m sure the Lord understood me! But it did feel strangely King Jamesy… if you know what I mean.
I loved both Titus [Mercy’s Heart] and Ian [Faith’s Keys], they make strong romantic heroes who are also real guys. And Rafael Wulffson [uncle to Titus- and one of the characters of Magpie’s Masque] is another hero I’ve fallen in love with.
Of course, he’s handsome. But he’s also flawed and complicated. He’s got a compelling backstory. He’s the ultimate black sheep who is redeemed over the course of the story.
If you’ve read any of my other novels, you know I’m a sucker for a cynical, tough guy whose life is completely regenerated by God by the time the book is over. Rafe is my darkest, most damaged hero yet. And that makes him yummy on so many levels 🙂 !!
Anyhoo, I thought I’d post an image of him so you can sort of see who he is. The release date on Magpie’s Masque is June 1st. The book trailer will be up on my youtube channel by the middle of May. Hope you roll by there and take a peek.
