Overview

England, 1138. Set against the dangerous backdrop of the crusades, this sweeping romance captures the story of a beautiful, young woman and the dashing knight who will battle his fiercest enemies to win her undying love. . .

Ever since she was fourteen, Alyson of Olverton dreamed of marrying a brave, charismatic young knight. His name was Guillelm de la Rochelle--and his marriage proposal satisfied her deepest yearnings. But her father forbade their union, prompting Guillelm to set out for the Holy Land, breaking Alyson's innocent heart. Seven years later, the valiant knight has defied rumors of his death and returned home, having no idea that nothing is the same as when he left. . .

Back from fighting in the crusades, Guillelm is stunned to find Alyson entrenched in his father's ancestral castle--even worse she was betrothed to his father before he died. Despite this chilling fact, Guillelm finds himself struggling to resist the temptation to seduce her. Torn between intense jealousy and overwhelming desire, he shocks them both by proposing marriage a second time, justifying that it will be easier to keep her safe if she is his bride. Little do they know, however, that there is an enemy in their very midst--one who won't rest until he destroys their chance at everlasting love. . .

    Who doesn't love a story of waiting for true love?

    A knight leaves home to fight with the Crusaders and returns upon his father's death to find the one girl he's always loved bethrothed to his father before his death. Alot of misconceptions and jumping to conclusions keeps these two apart. Not to mention a jealous best friend who would do anything to ambush their romance. I had to read on to see if there was a happy ending.

    A reviewer

    This is an absorbing read which combines strong story-telling with completely credible characters full of human doubts, charms and flaws and puts them in a vividly real medieval setting. Lindsay Townsend can not only tell an entrancing story, she clearly understands the medieval world thoroughly. Unputdownable.
