Overview

A woman in search of revenge.... An honorable man with a dark past.

It is 1197, and King Richard, known as the "Lionhearted," is fighting France while Prince John hatches his own plans back home.

To find her father's killer, Helena of York must pose as a Norman in the great halls of Richard's England. Her only desire is to kill the man who destroyed her father and her future. Should she be unmasked, her life will be forfeit.

Stephen, Count of Dinan, once Richard's friend and trusted knight, is outcast for reasons shrouded in mystery. Known as the "Black Baron," he is friendless in a glittering world he despises. His only goal is to restore his honor and once again serve his king.

Stephen's suspicions draw him into Helena's web of deceit, and the two outsiders find themselves tangled in a conspiracy that threatens the throne of England itself, while their embattled hearts grapple with a far greater challenge.

Heart of Vengeance is part of the Jewels of Tomorrow series.

Finalist, Best Medieval Historical Romance - Romantic Times
CAPA Nomination for Best Historical Romance
Night Owl Reviews Reviewers' Top Pick

Historical romance at its best. With perfect amounts of suspense, intrigue and passion the novel is simply impossible to put down. Night Owl Reviews

I'm convinced the author's beautiful story, coupled with historical accuracies intertwined in such a way, you couldn't possibly debate its winning outcome. Love Romance Passion

Exceptionally well written, the reader feels they have walked straight in to the forest and castles which are richly detailed throughout the story. Single Titles.

Finally, another author not afraid to include historic details in her historical romance. I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves rich details, and a wonderful story that will pull you into the time period. Kristi Ahlers, Amazon Top 1000 reviewer

In 1197 Oxford, per the orders of King Richard, the Chief of Justicular Hubert Walters calls a meeting of the Great Council. Prince John¿s supporters prefer not to be there, but even the most loyal of Richard¿s lords would rather be elsewhere. Only the Black Baron Stephen of Dinan wants to attend. He gave an honest opinion to Richard several years ago and since has been in royal disfavor and everyone treats him with contempt. His only hope to regain his former status is courage by the King¿s side in war. Hubert informs Stephen he is not to attend the meeting........................... Stephen meets Isobel at the Great Council feast, but insists she is an imposter as he knew Isobel in Brittany. The woman masquerading as Isobel is actually Helena daughter of a deceased aristocrat murdered allegedly by a Saxon villager, but she believes a Norman lord did the dastardly deed. She has gone undercover to learn who murdered her father. Stephen soon helps Helena on her quest when attacks on her life begin. As they fall in love her heart remains filled with vengeance making little room for Stephen................................. HEART OF VENGEANCE is an exhilarating medieval romantic suspense novel that transports the audience to the late twelfth century through historical tidbits and persona interwoven into the delightful plot. Stephen and Helena carry heavy emotional loads so that love is out of the question for both of them yet neither can deny their feelings for the other. The support cast especially the also obsessed Prince John adds to the feeling of being in Oxford. Though one of the most frequently used eras in novels and movies, readers receive a refreshing vivid picture of courtly intrigue inside a fabulous love story......................... Harriet Klausner
