Did that title make you blink?
The root word for equinoctial is equinox…which is today. It is the vernal equinox, and from now on, the days will have more sunlight hours than night hours in them.
Which is kinda coincidental…but perhaps not.
The equinox and solstices play a role in my King Arthur series, Once and Future Hearts. People in the fifth century were far more attuned to the movement of the seasons and marked their passing in a number of ways.
Stonehenge, which plays a big role in the series, is in part, (and in actual historical fact) a calendar for measuring the coming and going of the seasons (which is why the sun appears through the major capstones at dawn on the summer solstice).
War Duke of Britain, the fourth book in the series, came out a few days ago:
He is not the enemy she came to fight.
Idris the Slayer is the champion of the northern kings. Undefeated in battle, the dark, lone warrior who rides to war with a black wolf at his side spreads fear before him, even among those counted his allies.
When Rhiannon of Galleva rides to her first battle with Emrys and Cai, she expects to fight the Saxon hoards pouring into Britain. She is not braced to defend herself against Idris’ incursion into her heart.
He is a dangerous man to be drawn to, for his allegiance lies with king Lot of Orkney, who holds no love for Uther, the aging High King. Rhiannon’s parents, Anwen and Steffan, are loyal to the High King, as is Count Ector, Cai’s father. Rhiannon’s association with a northern man tears open secrets that have brewed for a generation, forcing Uther and his commanders to fight enemies on two fronts.
This novel is part of the ancient historical romance series, Once and Future Hearts, set in Britain during the time of King Arthur.

Praise for War Duke of Britain
Imagine how good is the author in her craft that she is capable of surprising us here readers even though the Arthurian cycle is one of the most rewritten one in western literature.
What a great storyteller! I never thought that anyone could tell an Arthurian tale as well as Mary Stewart, but Tracy Cooper Posey has succeeded. I am just in awe of her ability to meld historical detail with legends and turn out a mesmerizing story.
It takes me back to the magic I felt when reading Mary Stewart’s stories of Merlin. Tracy Cooper-Posey has written another winner!
As a long time, self proclaimed Arthurian Legend junkie I couldn’t wait to dive into Tracy Cooper Posey’s new series. Tracy once again proves to be a master story teller as she weaves the delicate threads of this beloved legend into her own.
Oh my goodness. Of course I was not sure what to expect with this but what I got was a wonderful story set in the time just before King Arthur. Invading Saxons, Romans, Kings, princesses, mysteries, Merlin, and romance? Wonderful beginning to a new series and I cannot wait to read more.
I also love the fact that her female characters are definitely not boring, whiny or TSTL.
Tracy Cooper Posey is brilliant at weaving stories with individuals that are completely believable in their thoughts and dialogue.
Ms Tracy has an amazing way of telling a tale. It’s magical 🙂
