Overview

A maiden to be saved . . .

During the murderous assault on the village of Vaux, little “Ana” lost all she knew. Suddenly, out of the burning wreckage, a young man appeared and rescued her from the horrors of the night. He proved to be a squire in a company of knights, on their way to join the Crusades. At a neighboring village, he delivered her into the care of a peasant couple who promised to love her. Before departing, he gifted her with something to remember him by . . . the silver cross from around his neck.

A wrong to be righted . . .

After a decade of fighting in the east, Sir Royce de Warrene returns to England a celebrated knight. But he soon discovers the terrible mistake he made on that long-ago night. The orphan girl was no peasant child, but an heiress of noble blood — Lady Juliana Mandeville — and he deprived her of her birthright. He is charged with a quest — to find her at once and restore her to her grandfather — by order of the king!

Love to be fulfilled, fated long ago . . .

Now grown to womanhood, the stunningly beautiful and saucy “Ana” refuses to believe the knight when he disrupts her wedding day, intent on taking her from those she loves and to deliver her to strangers at the English court. She grips the silver cross she wears, wishing her gallant squire could rescue her once more. Although she cannot remember his face clearly and never knew his name, she has not forgotten the night he saved her so long ago . . .

    Strong emdieval romance

    In 1190, Royce de Warrene joined a group of knights as squire to Lord Hugh, who leads them to fight under the banner of the Lionhearted on Crusade. However, in France, the group stops at the ruins of the village Vaux, destroyed by marauding soldiers. The local lord¿s manor is also devastated, but Royce spots a survivor, an eight-year old girl Ana who he believes is the miller¿s daughter. He gives Ana to a peasant couple, vowing to become a protector of the little Ana¿s of the world. <P>A decade later, Royce returns home to claim the lands promised to him by the Lionhearted. However, King John assigns him the task of finding a missing heiress who Royce realizes is his little Ana. He goes to retrieve her, but she rejects his story and fails to recognize the confident adult as her saving squire. She gives him a hard time, but love blossoms between them anyway, but both need to reach out to one another if anything permanent is to occur. <P>Using interwoven historical tidbits to authenticate her plot, award winning Kathleen Kirkwood casts quite a medieval romantic tale with HIS FAIR LADY. The story line is loaded with the intrigue and glamour of the early thirteenth century and for a change John seems somewhat human and not just a cowardly bully. The lead couple is destined to be a fan favorite as their relationship endures everything due to their love for another. Ms. Kirkwood has written another warm deep novel that will excite sub-genre fans. <P>Harriet Klausner
