DANGEROUS FAVOR ~ by Joyce DiPastena

DANGEROUS FAVOR  by Joyce DiPastena, the Queen of sweet medieval romance!

Mathilde needs a champion.  Her father has been accused of stealing from the king, an allegation that has reduced her family to poverty. She has one chance to find and marry a man who can help her prove her father's innocence. Lord Therri, heir to a rich barony, has the wealth and connections Mathilde needs to delve into the mysteries of her father's past. Furthermore, Therri embodies all her romantic dreams.

Etinne, the younger son of a disgraced family, has neither wealth nor connections, but is smitten with Mathilde at a glance. She finds the knight intriguing, but believes he is only out to seduce her. While she seeks for a way to win Therri's attention, Etienne tricks her into granting him her favor --an embroidered white ribbon--for a tournament, setting in motion a dangerous chain reaction of events. Can Etienne save Mathilde from a nightmare from her past and prove himself the true hero of her dreams?

Writers Mirror gives DANGEROUS FAVOR 10 stars! 

Joyce graduated from Arizona State University with a degree specializing in medieval history. She writes as if she were living amongst her characters and will transport readers there with her.

Joyce loves cats. One of her little purr-babies is named Glinka Rimsky-Korsakov. There must be quite a story in that.

If you have read Joyce DiPastena's LOYALTY'S WEB and ILLUMINATIONS OF THE HEART, you know you are in for a great read.  Joyce is a master of medieval history, and weaves a delectable sweet romance around a world of intrigue.

(Note; if you haven't read Joyce's other two books, get all three and have a lovely summer spent in medieval times around knights, knaves, castles, beautiful maidens, jewels, crowns and passionate yet clean love stories.)

Here's hoping that Joyce is busy with book four!


  1. I love Joyce's books! I have this one, but haven't read it yet...UNFORTUNATELY!

  2. Thanks for this spotlight, Cindy! I'm working on something, but I'm not sure it's Book 4. Maybe more like Book 3.5. ;-)

  3. So loved this story! Joyce has a way of drawing you in and weaving a great tale. I read late into the night to finish this one.
