The Bridled Tongue

Please join me in congratulating Catherine Meyrick on the publication of The Bridled Tongue! I had the pleasure of working with Catherine on a developmental edit and a copyedit, and I designed the cover! Here's the book description:

Death and life are in the power of the tongue.

England, 1586

Alyce Bradley has few choices when her father decides it is time she marry, as many refuse to see her as other than the girl she once was--unruly, outspoken and close to her grandmother, a woman suspected of witchcraft.

Thomas Granville, an ambitious privateer, inspires fierce loyalty in those close to him and hatred in those he has crossed. Beyond a large dowry, he is seeking a virtuous and dutiful wife. Neither he nor Alyce expect more from marriage than mutual courtesy and respect.

As the King of Spain launches his great armada and England braces for invasion, Alyce must confront closer dangers from both her own and Thomas's past, threats that could not only destroy her hopes of love and happiness, but her life. And Thomas is powerless to help.

The Bridled Tongue is available now in ebook and print editions on AmazonKobo, and Barnes & Noble. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit Catherine's website for more info on her books, her historical research, and her works-in-progress!
