About Jude Knight

Have you ever wanted something so much you were afraid to even try? That was Jude ten years ago.

For as long as she can remember, she's wanted to be a novelist. She even started dozens of stories, over the years.

But life kept getting in the way. A seriously ill child who required years of therapy; a rising mortgage that led to a full-time job; six children, her own chronic illness… the writing took a back seat.

As the years passed, the fear grew. If she didn't put her stories out there in the market, she wouldn't risk making a fool of herself. She could keep the dream alive if she never put it to the test.

Then her mother died. That great lady had waited her whole life to read a novel of Jude's, and now it would never happen.

So Jude faced her fear and changed it--told everyone she knew she was writing a novel. Now she'd make a fool of herself for certain if she didn't finish.

Her first book came out to excellent reviews in December 2014, and the rest is history. Many books, lots of positive reviews, and a few awards later, she feels foolish for not starting earlier.

Jude write historical fiction with a large helping of romance, a splash of Regency, and a twist of suspense. She then tries to figure out how to slot the story into a genre category. She’s mad keen on history, enjoys what happens to people in the crucible of a passionate relationship, and loves to use a good mystery and some real danger as mechanisms to torture her characters.

Dip your toe into her world with one of her lunch-time reads collections or a novella, or dive into a novel. And let her know what you think.

As I already adore Jude's writing, I knew that I would enjoy this book with three short stories and one novella. It did not disappoint!
Such interesting and unique characters-a raven, a blind hero, a pirate and a success in the gold rush. Each story is unique and offers a sample of Jude's wonderful writing and imagination.
My favorite was The Prisoners of Wyvern Castle. Since it is a prequel to Embracing Prudence, a 2016 release, I am excited for the continuing story.

Hand-Turned Tales by Jude Knight
Three Short Stories and a Novella
The following stories are like a sampler pack for the author's writing. The stories were written for winners of a contest. They gave some names and ideas and the author wrote these stories from them.

The Raven's Lady
Felix Maddox returns home after he was thought dead. Under a false name he has one last job...find a smuggler, the Black Fox. Could the villain actually be the girl he left behind eight years ago?

All That Glisters
Thomas O'Bryan is in New Zealand on business. When he stops in to pay his respects to his aunt, he finds a bitter couple and a beautiful young woman. He would love to remove Rose from her unhappy situation but they are too different. Or are they?

Kidnapped to Freedom
Phoebe has missed several chances of being rescued from the plantation she is a slave on. She has one more chance to be reunited with her siblings and perhaps the young man she once loved. If she can remember that love instead of the handsome pirate that has come to her rescue.

The Prisoners of Wyvern Castle
I really enjoyed this novella. It has the villains that you'd more than happily lop their heads off of. The hero that nabs your heart the moment you know his story. Not to mention the romance between Rupert and Madeline and the chasm they have to cross for their happily-ever-after.
