Tre’ Devaux’s title and land have been stripped away by the greed of King John. Forced into the position, he is now the Sheriff of Nottingham. His task, set by this corrupt King, is to rid the land of the outlaws or lose everything the King has taken permanently.
Lady Jane Neville has been widowed but still the King has called upon her household to give up the men for his war with France. Unsettled by the tenuous position King John has created, Lady Jane has taken up in her uncle’s footsteps. She has big steps to fill, since her uncle is also known as Robin Hood.
Tre’ and Jane’s endeavors immediately put them at opposite sides of the law but with a common goal, save their homes and people. A fiery passion and intensity ignites when they meet. By giving into their desires, they would find themselves lovers on opposing sides of a civil war.
I absolutely enjoyed this quite authentic historical romance. Juliana Garnett’s writing whisks you away to a time long past and envelopes you into the England of old. The romance was slow building but filled with passion, the return to Nottingham was delightful, and the story was wonderfully suspenseful...a perfect historical romance.
This copy of The Baron was given to me by Random House - Loveswept in exchange for a honest review.
