They embarked on the Crusades as strangers. They battled through as more than brothers-in-arms.
March 1190. Brimming with the spirit of youth, the idealistic Henry de Grey joins King Richard’s army ready to fight for God’s glory on the battlefield. But after he bloodies his sword and witnesses the slaughter of innocents, he struggles to justify the violent acts he’s committed. Through months of brutal marches and political bickering, Henry finds comfort in the fearless resolve of a brash veteran. But when his feelings of friendship grow into something more, he must put his old convictions through the gauntlet.
Stephan I’Aigle would follow the king anywhere, even into the heart of enemy territory. He takes Henry under his wing, but realizes his own growing attachment and burning passion is opening his heart. Will that destroy the knights’ friendship, or leave them both completely defenseless in the heat of battle?
Men of the Cross is medieval historical fiction with elements of an m/m romance. If you like journeys of self-discovery, vivid historical details, and slow-burn chemistry, then you’ll love this tale of the knights who served the Lionheart.
