Overview

When Gisela Anne Balewyne comes face to face with handsome knight Dominic de Terre, she fears her dangerous secrets have caught up with her. The small town of Clovebury seemed the perfect place to hide from her abusive husband, raise her young son, and earn a living as a tailor while she saved to move north and start a new life. Seeing Dominic--the lord she loved and then lost when he went on crusade--renews her desire for him, but she can never be with him again, and not just because she’s a commoner and he’s a nobleman. Loving him would mean risking too much, including his life.

Dominic is on a crucial mission for Lord Geoffrey de Lanceau: to find out who stole de Lanceau’s cloth shipment, worth a fortune. Dominic is stunned to see Gisela, the only woman he’s ever loved. She’s changed, though, from the passionate, sensual woman he knew. He vows not only to succeed in his mission, but to win her heart forever--goals that endanger them all, especially when Dominic learns she’s been hired to sew clothes from some of the stolen silks. As he unravels her shocking secrets and learns the truth about her little boy, he could lose all that’s dear to him--or win a knight’s greatest reward.

    BE STILL MY HEART - WOW - SO ENJOYABLE!! This is book 2 of the Knight's Series, but really could be a stand alone, but if you want to fully enjoy our main character's from book one making an appearance, read it first. My only disappointment is, no EPILOGUE, how I love when an author wraps up with our H/h somewhat in the future. I am hoping maybe book 3 will catch us up with our H/h from this story. I won't go into the storyline, since it has been down before, but this is such a sweet love story. Only the last page is about their coupling - very very mild, compared to other romance stories. I loved Ada and her relationship with Ewan and Gisela, maybe me laugh at times. Ms. Kean is such a wonderful writer, that the story comes to life and she makes you care about our character's from the very first time you read about them. (ljb)

    Love reading about hot knights!

    I really enjoyed Dominic and Gisela's story. I only wish that the ending included Ewan learning the truth. On to book 3! 198 pages.

    This was an absolutely wonderful historical romance!! The characters were believable and lovable. I could not stop reading I sat up through the night to finish it. It was so easy to be captivated by the hero (Dominic) and heroine (Gisela). Gisela's son Ewan brings so much to this story as well he is such a big part which was a pleasant change.

    Superbly Rewarding Medieval!

    Catherine Kean continues her Knights Series with a wonderfully enchanting and heartwarming story of love once lost and now found. Years ago, the strong, handsome nobleman, Dominic de Terre, fell in love with an exquisite commoner, Gisela Anne Balewyne. Rather than give in to his family¿s demands and marry a noblewoman, he chooses to leave his home and the arms of his ¿Little Daisy,¿ of his life, Gisela, and join up to fight in the Crusades with King Richard. All he thinks about during his time away is being in the meadow of daisies with his Gisela. He returns, feeling that his life has changed and that Gisela is probably married. He joins up to support his friend and strong local lord, Lord de Lanceau. While on an undercover mission to find out who has been stealing Lord de Lanceau¿s precious shipments of rare silks, he sees his Gisela in the marketplace. But this woman says she is Anne and the little boy with her is her son, Ewan. Dominic¿s eyes and heart know differently, and he continues to follow and discover that Anne really is his Gisela. He immediately wonders why she is in hiding with her son and working as a tailor. Little does he realize that Gisela has many secrets, but most of all, she has run away from a brutal husband who has scarred her for life and has threatened all that she loves, especially her son. The mystery begins as Gisela is trapped in a situation with a French Merchant Crenardieu and the very silks that Dominic is looking for, as well as another deep secret she must tell Dominic. For a short time, Gisela has her Dominic back, but she knows once she meets Crenardieu¿s blackmail demands, she must take the money made from the silk garments commissioned for him and run far, far away from her evil husband Ryle and her newfound love for Dominic. But Dominic does not want to give up on Gisela, and as their passion once again reignites, Gisela, her son, and Dominic get trapped in the dangerous plot by Ryle and Crenardieu. Will Gisela run, or decide to stay and save Dominic while facing the loss of both Dominic and her son by admitting to Lord de Lanceau that she was involved in the stolen silk plot? But most of all will Dominic forgive her most important secret? As all of the other Knight Series, Catherine Kean has once again written an interesting and intense story with mystery and many characters with depth. A Knight¿s Reward is another page turner that keeps the reader absorbed from beginning to end, and is another Medieval Romance that is a keeper for collectors.

    a fascinating historical tale

    In 1194 frightened more for the safety of her son Ewan even if he is the lord¿s heir, Gisela Balewyne runs away with her child from her odious abusive husband Rhys. She takes shelter in Clovebury where she obtains work as a tailor. Her goal is to save enough money so that she and her child can travel even further away from Rhys she hopes one day she can stop looking at every stranger she sees with suspicion that he is the one.--------------- Lord de Lanceau sends his loyal knight Dominic de Terre to find stolen valuable silk. When the trail takes him to Clovebury, Dominic is stunned to see Gisela, who he loved before going off to war, sewing garments from the very cloth he seeks. She is working on a special order for French merchant Crenardieu. Dominic cannot believe she would be part of a theft ring, but the evidence is clear just like he learns who Ewan¿s sire really is. He knows his heart loves Gisela, but his head tells him she is untrustworthy of his feelings while Crenardieu sends hooligans to eliminate the investigating knight.------------- This is an interesting medieval romance that uses a late twelfth century setting to tell a tale that in many ways feels contemporary with a sleuthing warrior and a woman hiding from her husband. The story line is fast-paced, but obviously driven by the relationship between the lead couple as he suspects her of thieving and lying while she prays he proves her love for him is right by protecting Ewan. Catherine Kean writes a fascinating historical tale.----------- Harriet Klausner
