Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Worn-out plot elements make for an enervated conclusion to Coulter's ( Earth Song ) Song trilogy, set in the 13th century. Damon Le Mark's niece Daria de Fortescue is kidnapped on the way to her wedding: the kidnapper, Edmond of Clare, demands her dowry or he will rape her. Damon employs Roland de Tournay to recover the maid--provided she still is one. If not, says Damon to the rescuer, you can kill her. Roland poses as a priest to gain entrance to Clare's castle. Daria knocks Edmond out cold when he tries to ravish her, and Roland smuggles her out. Distrusting the unscrupulous Damon's motives, Roland decides to stash the young woman in Wales for temporary safekeeping but falls ill en route. Daria's ministrations include climbing into bed with her delirious protector, and she finds herself pregnant by a man who denies he's the father. Seeking assistance against Edmond, who is pursuing him, Roland approaches the king and queen of England; they take pity on Daria and urge Roland to marry her, blithely trusting that the reluctant bride and sulky groom will muddle their way to marital bliss--as, of course, they do. (Feb.)

I enjoyed this book imensely. Though as a female it is still hard to remember how hard being women at the time was. Though the heroine is strong and roland is most of the time loveable. This is a book to read!

Coulter's knowledge of the medieval times comes through in this and all of her song series books. The book's characters are both credible and entertaining as well as lovable. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Catherine Coulter delivers another funnny historical novel. Ms. Coulter never fails to install in her characters wit and charm. For the most part I love this book, couldn't stop turning the pages actually. :-) The only critisim I have is that the ending seemed rushed.

I loved this one because again, Catherine Coulter brought out such extreme emotions in me because of Roland. In one moment, I wanted to thrash Roland, and in the next I was lusting after him. I'm still amazed that Catherine can just throw my emotions around like that. It's a great story of triumph and Daria is a strong character. Thanks again Catherine!
