Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Beverley shows us once again how engrossing, moving, and entertaining a real historical romance can be.”—The Romance Reader

“A highly romantic story that captures the era with all its nuances, pageantry, and great passion.”—Romantic Times

Library Journal
Shorn of her golden hair, dressed in drab, and smeared with ashes, Claire Summerbourne defiantly prepares to meet the monster who has usurped her late father's holdingsand is claiming her as his bride. But the strong, virile king's champion, Renald de Lisle, is also perceptive and compassionate and proves to be more than a match for the clever Claire in their wary, passionate journey to wedded bliss. Noted for her fast-paced, wonderfully inventive stories, excellent use of humor and language, and vividly rendered characters and situations, Beverley has created another gem that will not disappoint. One of the most popular writers in the field, Beverley (Something Wicked, Topaz, 1997) is a member of the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame and lives in Mattoon, IL.

I was actually in the middle of reading another book when I picked this one up and I did not do anything else until I turned the last page. It was so hard to put this book down to even go to sleep. This was my first time reading a book by Beverly and I was deeply impressed with her style. She painted such a vivid description of the characters and had such a great storyline that I felt as though I were watching the tale unfold right in front of me. I can't wait to get another story written by Jo Beverly.

You should really read this. I couldn't put the book down and the book kept you turning the pages. It had a fast plot with lively characters. This book also kept you guessing till the end.
