Overview

The enemy of your enemy is...your lover?

A peasant farm girl has no place consorting with feuding lords, yet that's exactly what Jocelyn Cutler sets out to do. Now Jocelyn finds herself trapped between the tyrannical Lord Kerr, and the dangerous rogue, Sir Trent Wescott.

When her younger brother is sentenced to death for rebelling against Lord Kerr, Jocelyn in desperation appeals to his rival, Sir Trent Wescott. Rumors mark Trent a highwayman, a murderer, and--worse for Jocelyn--a heartbreaker. But he's the only one who can save her brother's life. The price? The only thing a beautiful peasant girl has to offer--herself.

Unaccustomed to his new role as protector, Trent is shocked to find Jocelyn closer to a dutiful wife than a greedy mistress. But the life they're building together hangs in the balance when an ancient crime resurrects from the past. Jocelyn and Trent must decide what to forgive, what to fight for, and how far they're willing to go for the sake of duty, family, and love.

Set in the rolling hillsides of England during the Restoration, BRAESWOOD TAPESTRY is one of Robyn Carr's historical novels, which will all be reissued in digital editions in the coming months.

"Rich in event and period detail...Recommended." --New York Daily News

"Political intriguing among King Charles's courtiers, battling, land-hungry barons and lusty sexual trading allow for few lulls in this spirited romance." --Publishers Weekly

Wow. Definitely a different writing style than I'm used to. It read like poetry, almost Shakespear-like but a bit easier to read. The storyline was just so intriguing & the writing so melodic that I could NOT stop reading.

I loved this book. I enjoy both historical and contemporary romance and since I'm a big fan of Robyn's contemporary, I thought I'd give her historical romance a try. This was exceptional! It's a lot "meatier" than many historical romances--the storyline and characters are well-developed and intriguing. I found myself rooting for and against characters (and luckily, I ended up rooting for the right ones!). I love it when an author is able to have good people do not-so-good actions or make seemingly wrong decisions but still have it all come out okay in the end. Much like real-life, Robyn's characters make mistakes and make choices that some find hard to stomach or forgive, but I still care about and root for those characters because of who they are. Strongly recommend to anyone who enjoys historical romance books!

I read all things Robyn Carr but this is the first Historical Romance of hers that I have read... Loved the characters, loved the plot and as always I enjoyed Ms. Carr's writing style... IMO she is one of the finest writers available today... England in the 1600's was a fascinating period in history... This book is not only a love story but it is a history lesson as well... I think you will enjoy this book...
