About the Book
Lucianna Fabio harbors a secret, painful memory from her past that has kept her unwed, as well. Now in her forties, she thought herself too old to marry until she meets Sir Balduin. Now suddenly their lonely autumn lives feel very much like spring again . . . until Lucianna’s brother appears without warning and threatens to revive the secret that will destroy Lucianna’s second chance at love.
“Loving Lucianna" is the first in my new “Hearts in Autumn” romance series, medieval romances revolving around heroes and heroines “in the autumn of their years.” Because you’re never too old to fall in love!”

Bewildered and desperate to maintain his true love’s affections, Sir Balduin tries everything in his power to keep Lucianna from leaving him. When the truth of Lucianna’s past is finally revealed, will Sir Balduin finally be willing let Lucianna go or will he stay and fight for the woman he loves?
This is an amazing story with wonderful relatable characters. I particularly loved Sir Balduin and the way he truly adores Lucianna. The backstory that is woven into the book is brilliant and adds a wonderful dimension. This is a clean romance book, so it is fitting for the teenage readers as well as the older adults.. I highly recommend Loving Lucianna and will definitely be reading it again.
