    Karen Fenech writes a fun historical romance

    In 1122, William Norris dies in combat after betraying an ally. He leaves behind his pregnant wife Lady Katherine Stanfield, who would prefer the odious man, went to hell, but for the sake of her soon to be born child she gives him a Christian burial. Less than two weeks later, Katherine gives birth to twins with her daughter dying in childbirth. At about the same time Lord Ranulf invades the keep with plans to make Katherine his wife. She flees leaving behind her dead child so Ranulf will not know that a son lives.------------ Her loyal Commander Sir Guy takes her son into hiding while she asks her former betrothed De Lauren for help. He agrees on the condition she marry him right then. He retakes Stanfield keep, but the slaughter of innocent people and the destruction of property are horrifying. De Lauren buries her daughter because he does not want the woman he loves but mistrusts to see that Ranulf decapitated the infant. As Katherine realizes she too loves her spouse like she did when she broke off their engagement five years ago, Ranulf plots to assassinate De Lauren and make sure his enemy¿s loyal brother Stephen thinks Katherine betrayed them again.------------ Though Ranulf is a too over the top psychopath (asks his late wife as he literally bled her dry), medieval romance readers will welcome this fine twelfth century tale more so because of the hero, who seems so realistic especially his code of justice. The excitement in the entertaining story line resides in anticipating the confrontation and learning why Katherine broke off with De Lauren and defied her father to marry an odious Norris. Karen Fenech writes a fun historical romance.------------- Harriet Klausner

    Mega Kudos to Karen

    Karen Fenech is a creative genius when it comes to writing historical romantic suspense. Betrayal took me on an unforgettable adventure that stirred my heart and dazzled my imagination. Lady Katherine Stanfield is strong, passionate, and one of the most likable and believable characters I've met in a very long time. Kind of a Midieval Miss Congeniality. The dialogue was authentic to the Renaissance era, the action and drama were perfectly weaved together to make me feel completely surrounded and swept away in this intriguing and exciting journey of Knights, Lords, Ladies, and Betrayal.
