My Story BEFORE The Story - Mail-Order Mishaps

My name is Caleb Blair. I had no intention of getting into it with Buck Tinan. All I wanted to do that day was fetch Eve Martin at the train depot and then get married. And here I am in a jail cell, for crying out loud! Miss Martin will probably get on the next eastbound train and not look back. Can’t say as I’d blame her.

I got a real break when I was twenty and was able to buy my own spread with some money my pa left me. I’ve worked really hard to build it up over the past decade, and I’m just about ready to hire some help. But, man, it gets lonesome when you’re by yourself on a ranch. After giving it a lot of thought, I placed one of those bride ads, and the sweetest woman answered me. Eve Martin.

We wrote letters back and forth for months before she finally agreed to come out to Cheyenne and marry me. That was the best day of my life. After I got that letter, saying she’d become Mrs. Blair, I did everything I could to get ready for her. I cleaned up my place at the ranch and bought a few new things I hoped would please her, like a teapot and new towels, stuff like that.

And then I got into this mess. Sure, I hit Tinan. He was whipping that boy he got off the orphan train. But I didn’t kill him, no matter what people say. I’m just praying that Eve believes me, not what the sheriff says. If not, I’ll probably never see her face-to-face.

Our Story BEFORE The Story ~ Lord of Her Heart

Fall of 1198 AD

I am Jocelyn Ashburne and I am on the run. I’ve just escaped the convent after learning the abbess was being blackmailed to force me to either make my vows to the church or marry any man willing to part with a purse full of coin. I never thought I’d ever be wearing boy’s clothing, but here I am in itchy hose and tunic, running through the woods like a criminal, trying to get back home to my father.

Growing up in a large castle as an only child, I admit I was rather spoiled. But I was loved, and I knew it well. My parents doted on me, almost as much as they did each other. But then Mother grew sick and died, leaving my sire grieving and despondent. I lost both parents that day—one to sickness and one to a broken heart.

And then she arrived. Lady Helen. She snaked her way into my sire’s life and into his heart. Aye, she doted on me in his presence, but barely tolerated me otherwise. It was she who convinced my father to send me to the convent for an education. Said I was sadly lacking in the skills needed to marry well in the kingdom. No amount of arguing convinced my father to change his mind.

I was at the convent for several years. My father wrote to me a few times a year until this past year. I haven’t heard a word and I’m worried. I’m headed home to find out about my father’s silence and see if it has anything to do with the abbess’s blackmailer. Now I must stay out of trouble until I make it home to Ramslea.

I am Malcolm Castillon of Berkham, the younger son of a lord without land to call my own. My brothers have built a reputation for themselves and have been granted land by the king, and I aim to do the same. I’ve been tourneying with my squire all over France and England, winning gold and gaining the reputation needed to approach the king for land. While I earned my spurs and was knighted a few years back, I want to be lord and command my own garrison.

I’m headed to Ramslea where a large tournament is to begin in a se’ennight (seven days). The problem is my squire is ill and I’m afraid I must leave him in the next village if he worsens. Without a squire, my job is more difficult. It can be done, but not as easily had I help. Perhaps I can find a person to act as squire along the way. If not, I shall make it on my own. Earn my gold. Gain my land. I shall be victorious.
