    TORCH IN THE FOREST by Marcie Kremer is an exciting Medieval Historical Romance set in 1272 England. A quick fun read filled with danger and romance. Follow Lady Eleanor and Lord Hugh on a journey of Medieval intrigue and passion. Simply scandalous! Fast paced and a page turner. I read it in one setting. A must for historical readers who enjoy a quick read filled with everything you could want in a romance from intrigue to passion and everything in between. Received for an honest review from the publisher.

    Interesting!

    This book was interesting. Eleanor and Hugh had a chemistry and neither really liked the other. It was interesting watching these two find out about each other and realize that what they originally thought wasn't true.

    Marcie Kremer you are amazing! I just finished Torch In The For


    Marcie Kremer you are amazing! I just finished Torch In The Forest  last night, and I really, really loved it.  
    It has all the elements of a great book, love, intrigue, romance, a beautiful young female protagonist and a
    page turning plot. (This was the first romance novel that I have read – and to be honest I was not sure what
     to expect). The heroine, Lady Eleanor, really brought the novel to life. It was so fascinating to see life, during
    medieval times, through the eyes of a strong young woman.  (It also gave me a great appreciation on how far
    society has evolved on women's rights.)  The author obviously did A LOT of research on medieval history,
     language and customs.

     I finished the novel in one setting. I was captivated and intrigued with both the history and the
    characters - and the plot kept me turning the pages. Fantastic book!  I think that I am now, hopelessly
    hooked on romance novels. Oh, la-la!

    Torch in the Forest by Marcie Kremer Married at fourteen to a h

    Torch in the Forest by Marcie Kremer

    Married at fourteen to a hideous man, many years her senior, Eleanor is already a widow at eighteen. Intelligent, strong, and beautiful, the young Countess is mistress of the lands and people of Strathcombe on behalf of her liege lord, William of Litchfield. Sadly, like her late husband, the Earl of Litchfield is a rather disgusting, lecherous man of little honor who controls her future.

    The story begins as Eleanor receives a letter from her neighbor, Hugh of Wykeham, newly returned from the Crusades and demanding an explanation for the poaching in his forests. He lays the fault at her feet and that of her chief forester, giving her mere days to find and present the poachers.

    Although they, eventually, reach a compromise and extend the deadline for catching the poachers, there is more trouble in store for Eleanor, and her sister, Mary. William 'the Lecherous' seeks an alliance with the French and plans to offer Mary to an elderly Count. If that weren't enough, he has lusted after Eleanor for years, intending to wed her once his wife dies in childbirth.

    True to the times, Eleanor has little recourse against her liege lord. And when, in the midst of her never-before-experienced attraction to Hugh, she is forced to answer his offer for Mary's hand, things go from bad to much worse.

    ~*~*~

    It's been a long time since I've read an historical romance. I think I'd moved away from them because so few writers are able to capture the language and mores of a time passed. The further back in time, the more glaring the mistakes.

    Happily, Ms. Kremer has a pitch-perfect 'ear' and, clearly, did her research. I didn't feel any disconnect in the character's dialogue and behaviors. In fact, I was immediately drawn in and found myself lost in the 13th Century.

    As all good romance writers should, the author created believable obstacles for the main characters. So believable, that I was simply beside myself, unable to see how they could possibly overcome everything to be together, and to save Mary.

    Suffice it to say, this was a great read. While I could have done with fewer references to Eleanor's family motto, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Eleanor and Hugh, and recommend Torch in the Forest to any and all fans of historical romance.

    I really enjoyed "Torch in the Forest".   I loved how the author gave us insight into  life and love in medieval times. The character, Lady Eleanor, was a young, strong, female heroine. Her encounters with the handsome Lord Hugh were very tense, passionate, and romantic. Once I started reading this book, it was hard to put it down.  I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to get lost in a medieval world of romance, passion, tension and suspense.
