Just Released - The Valiant Heart

I'm delighted to announce the release of The Valiant Heart, the first book of my “Heart” trilogy and winner of RWA's Golden Heart Award. Get ready for Rurik and Brienne’s story:
A golden warrior of the North,

A beautiful heiress and pawn of the king,

Love unexpected, bringing peril to all,

As Norse and Frank meld into a new people — the Normans.

Their love will burn brightly through all the ages to come . . .

SAMPLE: The prologue and the first three chapters of the newly revised edition of The Valiant Heart are available for free download at www.kathleenkirkwoodhistoricals.com

SPECIAL NOTE: Bowing to the wisdom of placing all works under a single name, please note that my "Anita Gordon" novels will now appear under the name "Kathleen Kirkwood." Hopefully, this will give the trilogy better discoverability and less confusion for everyone.


Congratulations to Kimberly Reeland for her winning entry “Hávarðr,” Old Norse for “High Guardian.” It is a perfect name for my hero’s sword for, as you will read, Rurik served as a member of the Byzantine Emperor’s elite personal guard and foiled a palace plot that would have cost the emperor his life.

Many thanks to everyone who submitted an entry.
