Coming in January 2015!

I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be releasing two versions of the same romance novel in January 2015. I believe I'm the first author to do this. One version is inspirational, "sweet" or "mild" with a faith element. The other opens the bedroom doors and doesn't have a faith element. Which will you prefer?

At His Command AT HIS COMMAND
Historical Romance Version

"A wonderful debut sure to please lovers of romance!"
   —NYT & USA Today bestselling author Madeline Hunter

"With a bold knight and a strong-willed lady, Kaufman's story is positively medieval."
   —NYT & USA Today bestselling author Tracy Anne Warren

Could she defy her king for love?

England 1453: King Henry VI sends Sir Nicholas Gray to protect the recently widowed Lady Amice Winfield from undesirable suitors. Though Nicholas intrigues her, she yearns to run Castle Rising without a man's control.

Nicholas has no interest in marriage, but can't deny he's attracted to Amice. He's surprised to finally find in Castle Rising a place he feels at home. A kiss sparks desire neither can ignore, yet serving opposing factions seeking to govern England threatens to pull them apart.

At court, the king and queen reject Amice's pleas and choose a new husband for her, a highly-ranked lord who'll provide connections and coin for the king's depleted coffers that Nicholas cannot. How can she follow the king's command when she's a scribe for his rival? How can she marry another man when she's falling in love with Nicholas?



At His Command AT HIS COMMAND
Inspirational Version

"Ruth Kaufman debuts with her Golden Heart®-winning medieval romance, a richly textured tale of love, danger, and history."
   —NYT & USA Today bestselling author Mary Jo Putney, winner of two RT Career Achievement Awards

Can love and faith surmount duty and royal commands?

England 1453: Sir Nicholas Gray planned to go on a pilgrimage after fighting the French, but King Henry VI sends him to protect the recently widowed Lady Amice Winfield from undesirable suitors. Though Nicholas intrigues her, Amice yearns to run Castle Rising without a man's control. Mutual interest and affection grows, yet serving opposing factions seeking to rule England threatens to pull them apart.

At court, the king and queen reject Amice's pleas and choose a new husband, a highly-ranked lord who'll provide political connections and coin for the king's depleted coffers that Nicholas cannot. How can she follow the king's command when she's a scribe for his rival, who she believes should rule? How can she marry another man when she's falling in love with Nicholas?
