Overview

Half-sister to Richard the Fair, Alys has been schooled in the sheltered ways of the convent, far from the treachery and intrigue of castle life. Until she is taken from the cloister and brought to a place filled with secrets. Here she is to meet her future husband, a man some call a monster. His name is Simon of Navarre, a powerful and mysterious lord practiced in the black arts. This sensual stranger both terrifies her and fascinates her...and sets her heart burning with an unfamiliar fire.

Jaded by war, no longer able to believe in human goodness, Simon has turned toward the realm of darkness. But the master magician finds himself bewitched by the innocent Alys, who fears his very touch could damn her forever. Yet even as Simon begins to work his seductive magic, Alys senses the wounded soul beneath the cooly elegant facade. Now, as the two become pawns in Richard's treacherous scheme to become England's king, only one power can save them: the unstoppable force of love.

This is absolutely a marvellous read for me. Although the story takes some time to pick up its pace, I was completely engrossed in the story from start to finish. Simon of Navarre has to be one of the most wonderful and likable heroes ever created: he's dark, mysterious, powerful, and unlike so many other medieval romance heroes, he never mistreats the heroine. (Big Plus) The chemistry between h/h simply takes my breath away! And that incredible scene in the thunderstorm up on the parapet...well, I don't want to reveal too much here. Just read the book and you'll know what I mean.

This book takes you on an adventure of a lifetime into the secrets of a deprived heart, or rather two or three of them, into the story of love and danger, and heartache, the story of young and old, and power that is seeked by all. I loved reading this story, it kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end, and with some of the most romantic and powerful love seens ever, you don't want to miss it!

This novel enters you into a world of dangerous tirrants, knightsof old, a socorer with a that hate to love but can't resist, and quiet, meek heroin who hides a fire that burns in her heart. It's a must read.
