Overview

Rainulf Fairfax—priest, Oxford scholar, and ex-soldier—is summoned to give last rites to a village rector who died of smallpox, and discovers Father Osred's lovely young housekeeper, Constance, near death from the same disease. With Rainulf's help, she recovers, only to find herself at the mercy of the village's brutal overlord, who means to make her his unwilling mistress. Disguised as a male, she escapes to Oxford in search of Rainulf, who offers her the protection of his home. Inexorably drawn to each other, the celibate Rainulf and the beautiful and vibrant Constance find themselves swept into a firestorm of forbidden passion. Originally published by NAL.

    Loved the series and the story of Rainulf and Constance - the se

    Loved the series and the story of Rainulf and Constance - the series is over 2800 Nook pages. I think I liked book 2 just alittle better. The ending of who knifes people was a total shock to me. The second book didn't have as much negative talking about the Catholic Church as book one. I tried to keep an opened mind and realized it was the time period, but it was hard at times to keep that in mind. I tried to review not of my personal feelings but the story. I would recommend both books of the series.

    Loved this!

    I bought Falcon's Fire as part of a boxed set and when I realized that there was a story about Martine's brother, I bought it right away! I think this writer keeps you on the edge of your seat until the book is finished. I loved the tension between the main characters here, and I was really rooting for them!
    I'd never read any medieval romance novels before, and I loved them! I will definitely be reading more from this author - hopefully, the next in the series!
    LOVED!!
