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 KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
