No way this is a 'new' author!!
This is one book you will not put down until it is finished and then you'll be anxiously awaiting its sequel....Tristan's determination to wed the lovely, temperamental, surprisingly vulnerable Haith is just the beginning of this saga. The book is filled with such descriptive and insightful writing that you will become enmeshed in the storyline, while laughing, crying, and holding your breath at the beauty of this love story! Sometimes, as I read, I would just stop and think 'how did she (the author, Heather Grothaus) know that?!! It's the details of life in the 11th. Century that brings to light how it really was in the days of knights, kings, and lovely 'ladies in waiting'.. It's a 'sell-out' book for sure. Can't wait for your next book, Heather!

Kensington Zebra Debut is putting out some high-powered talent in the likes of Cynthia Breeding, Deborah MacGillivray and Heather Grothaus. For a reader who loves historicals this is such a welcome trend. These are strong historicals. Each writer has a very different in style and form, but all able to deliver strong, emotional stories. Grothaus is on my pre-order list as are Breeding and MacGillivray from this point on. I am checking out more Zebra Debut Historicals. Great price, great reads. Tristan D'Argent is another strong hero that just captured me. Haith was a haunting heroine who has to fight the hand of fate to win her true love. I have pre-ordered Grothaus' next book and simply cannot wait.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Could not put this bood down. I am a hopeless romantic and this offered both romance and a good story line. Tristan was both strong and sensitive and Haith a wonderful compliment to him. I hope to hear more from this author.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Ffans will enjoy this stirring eleventh century tale
In 1075 Lord Tristan D¿Arhgent accompanied by his best friend dark Pharao Tak¿Ahn arrive at Greanly Manor to claim ownership. He notices few people are here, but meets Sheriff Barrett who explains they are at Seacrest owned by the odious Lord Nigel. William has paid Nigel to care for the peasants until Tristan can take possession and wed Bertie, the daughter of the previous lord.----- At Seacrest Tristan sees Bertie¿s half-sister Haith and recognizes her from his dreams but is upset that she is apparently engaged to an odious commoner even as Pharao and Bertie keep staring at one another. After dinner, Tristan warns Nigel he better not cause trouble. Tristan leads his villagers home.------ At Greanly, Tristan kisses Haith and tells her he will ask William to stop his marriage to Bertie, but Haith says she cannot do this to her beloved sibling. Meanwhile Bertie invites Pharao into her room. The next day Haith visits Bertie and sees the blood stained sheet. She assumes that Tristan had sex with Bertie and is angry with him. She knows he is her soulmate that she has dreamed of for years, but he belongs to Bertie. Haith plans to help stop Nigel, but then leave for the home of her maternal relatives.------ The strong lead couple and excellent secondary cast especially the heroine¿s aunt who is a witch, his ¿dark¿ friend, and her half-sister, make for a delightful Conqueror romance with a touch of the paranormal. The story line is character driven as Tristan and Haith take turns mistrusting one other, but team up to prevent Nigel from causing any further harm. Though Bertie¿s mom gets off too easily from her actions, historical romance fans will enjoy this stirring eleventh century tale.----- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
