Men of the Cross

They embarked on the Crusades as strangers.

They battled through as more than brothers-in-arms.

Men of the Cross (Battle Scars I)

March 1190. The idealistic young knight Henry de Grey joins Richard the Lionheart’s army to fight for God’s glory on the battlefield. But after he bloodies his sword and witnesses the slaughter of innocents, he struggles to justify the violent acts he’s committed.

Stephan I’Aigle would follow the king anywhere, even into the heart of enemy territory. Taking Henry under his wing, Stephan fears his growing attachment and burning passion could make him lose his fighting edge. Will opening up his heart destroy the knights’ friendship, or leave them both completely defenseless in the heat of battle?

Through months of brutal marches and political bickering, Henry finds comfort in the fearless resolve of the brash Stephan. But when his feelings of friendship grow into something more, he must put his old convictions through the gauntlet.
