Prequel to The Sun and the Moon. In this RITA-winning medieval romance inspired by Hitchcock’s Rear Window, a soldier heals from a broken leg in the London home of a young widow who steals his heart—but his future rests on an arranged marriage to his lord’s daughter. Originally published by New American Library, a division of Penguin Putnam, Inc.

Won Romance Wrters of America’s RITA Award for Best Long Historical Romance. Nominated by Romantic Times magazine for Best Historical Romantic Mystery. Made the Ingrams A-List of Top 50 Requested Titles for four weeks.

“Patricia Ryan moves Rear Window to medieval London, and does things Hitchcock never dreamed of! Fresh, swift and sexy, Silken Threads strengthens Ms. Ryan’s reputation as an outstanding author of medieval romances.” New York Times bestselling author Mary Jo Putney

“Silken Threads resonates with the sounds, smells, intrigues and passions of the Middle Ages. Add engaging characters, authentic historical details and a well-crafted mystery and you have a delectable tapestry whose threads glide like silk through the pages.” Romantic Times

“Patricia Ryan is back with another dazzling medieval romance! Proving herself to be a remarkable storyteller, Patricia Ryan spins a tale of romance and mystery that will thrill readers. With a host of wonderful secondary characters to round out the complex plot, Ms. Ryan keeps readers guessing—and turning pages—right up till the end! This is a very special and original novel from one of romance’s finest authors. Don’t miss it.” The Literary Times

“This is a rich and rewarding book. The characters are fully realized, the setting is impeccably accurate, and the mystery kept me guessing....Silken Threads is romance at its best. This one goes on my keeper shelf.” The Romance Reader

“This medieval take on Hitchcock’s movie Rear Window is simply superb! The secondary characters add as much to the story as the hero and heroine, and the author’s sense of atmosphere is impeccable. Ms. Ryan is a superb stylist with words who weaves the silken threads of her latest medieval romance into a complex tapestry of mystery, suspense and passion. If you haven’t tried this author’s books (historical or contemporary), don’t wait any longer. This one is fantastic and not to be missed!” Tanzey Cutter, The Old Book Barn Gazette

“A real page-turner, this one will keep readers guessing right to the surprising conclusion.”

Reviews from Amazon:

Given that this is a freebie, I was extremely pleasantly surprised. It was well-written (at least, I didn't spot any drastic mistakes), well characterised and the plot was entertaining. As a mystery it wasn't 'that' mysterious and the end was slightly hokey (I found myself thinking 'What??'), but that didn't detract from a nice romance that was well placed in its context. I get irritated by historical romance writers who so obviously have not researched the period they are using, but this didn't happen here. I'm sure there were instances where things weren't entirely accurate, but they didn't grate or jump out at me (but then, I'm not a medieval expert anyway).

An enjoyable read, and I'll read more of this author - unlike some of the freebies around, she's worth reading.
