    One of the best!! A MUST READ Medieval!!

    One of the reasons I wished to write historical romances, was because of Maggie Davis aka Katherine Deauxville. I was running a bookstore at the time her historicals came out, and I had a customer that bought everything she wrote under either name, so naturally I had to see what had this customer so loyal. And am I glad I did!!! I fear some people often are not sure how to take Deauxville, because she refuses to conform to pattern writing, and I am sorry for them, because she is a writer with charm, wit, with strong research and able to create characters you will vividly recall years after you put the book down. And her medievals are just that, they endure and its a shame she does not get more attention for them. So if you love medievals that are fresh, not formula, and have missed Crystal Heart, Amethyst Crown, Daggers of Gold, then snap these up and enjoy!!! She is rich in detail of the period and local, and takes the reader on a wonderful journey in the Middle Ages. In this tale - after the Battle of Hastings, William the Conqueror gives his knight Fulk de Jobourg ownership of Castle Morlaix in Wales and orders him to marry its heiress, Lady Alwyn Lesneven. Her father was hanged for treason, and Fulk put in control of the lands, so Alwyn, quite naturally, is not pleased to be commanded to marry him. Her villeins fears William's and Falk's wrath, so they truss her up and deliver her to the altar. Fauk is disappointed his bride has to be wed in this manner, but does his duty. Then promptly leaves her to go hunt rebel Welsh. It is a series a hardships, pains and struggles, with Alwyn making all sorts of mistakes, but eventually Falk and Alywn must face their lives together...with her continually thwarting his power and yet, she is unable to fight her growing need for him. It is a wonderful tale, very non-stereotypical. Deauxville is able to walk the fine line between giving you an independent, headstrong character the women of today can appreciate, yet keeps within the believability of the period. Way to Go, Maggie!!! PLEASE more historicals!!!

    Great story!

    This is a great story. I enjoyed reading it very much... however, I missed not having the original cover artwork with this story release - at least, an acceptable equivalent to it. The book had a picture of a beautiful lady with long ebony black hair. She was walking up a stairway in a flowing red medieval gown, and her knight was standing in the background looking towards her. Now, pictures like that help to fire the imagination!
