Books by L. Blankenship

Disciple, Part I (Disciple, vol. 1)

The saints favor her, else-wise a peasant girl like Kate Carpenter would never be apprenticed to a master healer. But her patron saint also marks her ready for the duty of tending a mission that must cross the ice-bound mountains. Their little kingdom faces invasion by an empire and desperately needs allies; across the snow-filled pass is a country that's held off the empire and may be willing to lend an army. Kate knows about the everyday injuries of wilderness travel. She can heal those. She's not ready for the attentions of a ne'er-do-well knight and the kingdom's only prince, though. And she isn't ready for the monsters that harry them night and day, past exhaustion, pushing her beyond the limits her healing abilities. She must keep them alive or her blood will be on the snow too.

Disciple, Part II (Disciple, vol. 2)

The kiss the prince gave Kate during the secret mission seems like a fever dream. It’s back to work for her, back to the fellow physicians jealous of her talents and the sneers of an infirmary director who wants her shipped off to some tiny village. Kate means to be on the front lines to save lives. She worked too hard overcoming her past to let them deny her the chance to serve when the enemy’s army reaches their kingdom. But the prince’s kiss haunts her. Their paths keep crossing, and the easy familiarity they earned on the road is a welcome escape from their duties. This is no time to be distracted by love -- Kate ought to break both their hearts, for duty’s sake.

Disciple, Part III (Disciple, vol. 3)

Kate fought for her place as a healer in the war’s front lines. Serving her homeland has been her goal since her magical gifts earned her a coveted apprenticeship with the kingdom’s greatest healer. She believes she’s prepared.
    But nothing’s simple when defending a besieged capital city — or her heart.
    She loves the prince, who means to protect her even though his duties as a knight keep him on the battlements, fighting the enemy’s monstrous army.
    Kate’s husband is the one who checks on her, lingers over dinner, and slowly but surely charms her. She’s all too aware that her beloved prince threatened to kill him if he touches her.
    As the enemy thunders against the city walls, the kingdom needs more from Kate than just her healing magic. All disciples must put aside their tangled feelings and stand in the homeland’s defense.

Disciple, Part IV (Disciple, vol. 4)

Kate can’t avoid the simple truth any longer; as much as she loves Kiefan, he’s now the king and his duties leave him precious little time for her and their newborn son. Kate’s husband Anders, the ne’er-do-well knight, is the one who kisses her cheek every morning and soothes the baby to sleep on his shoulder.

Kiefan’s protective jealousy still casts a shadow over her life. He would gladly throw Anders to the wolves if it will keep alliance negotiations from collapsing. Their homeland desperately needs these allies against the invading Empire. The kingdom barely survived the first wave of the enemy’s monstrous army and more is to come.

But Kate can’t stand by and let Anders become a victim — or let Kiefan suspect she’s falling in love with her husband.
