One Night In Hartswood


by Emma Denny

A beautifully realised queer love story set in fourteenth-century England, Denny’s heartrending romance sees two men forced to conceal their passion for each other as they venture north through Hartswood forest.

One Night In Hartswood

A love story worth fighting for…

Oxfordshire 1360.

When Penn and Raff meet in Hartswood Forest the only truth they know of each other is a brief moonlit kiss they had shared the night before. But Penn is escaping an arranged marriage to a woman he has never seen. Raff is tracking the elusive missing groom of his sister to restore his family’s honour. Neither are looking for a travelling companion. Yet both men find themselves drawn to each other in ways neither imagined.

Unaware of their true identities they venture north together through Hartswood Forest. And, as their bond deepens, their fates become irrevocably entwined. But, with one escaping a life of duty and one tracking a fugitive, continued concealment threatens everything they know and trust in each other. So when secrets are finally revealed, and the consequences of their relationship become clear, both must decide what they will risk for the man they love.
