"Author Colleen Gleason creates a complex weave of duplicity, intrigue and love in A WHISPER OF ROSEMARY....She captures the very essence of medieval life." -- Wordweaving

Dirick of Derkland, man of the king, sets off on a mission of revenge after his father's brutal murder. His mind is bent solely on vengeance until he meets the beautiful, spirited Maris of Langumont.

Maris of Langumont has vowed never to wed...but her father must do his duty to protect her, and he promises her to Victor d'Arcy - a man who makes her blood run cold.

Bon de Savrille rests his eyes on Maris only once and decides she must be his. He whisks her away just before her betrothal, determined to force her into marriage.

When Dirick appears at the castle where Maris is held captive, she believes he is part of the plot ... and it's nearly his death she causes during her plan to escape.

If you love the rich medievals of Tina St. John, Paula Quinn, Catherine Coulter, Julie Garwood and Roberta Gellis, you'll love A Whisper of Rosemary!

excellent read! very engaging, kept me interested thru the whole story, near the end however she kind of came up short on some important characters that should have had more said about them. I do recommend this for a great romance read! enjoy!

Dirick of Derkland, is a man of the king, and on a mission of revenge. Maris of Langumont, is a woman of passion and strength, and a woman who has vowed never to wed. Until Dirick walked into her life and her heart.

***** A story of kings, queens, adventure and knightly love. I loved this book! Five stars all around. I was giggling like a schoolgirl by the end. I am definitely passing this book on to my friends. A talented author! *****

It wasnt a fantastic book, but there were some interesting plot twists. Same old firey wench type woman and big softhearted masculine hero....boring and predictable main charaters! So, of course very predictable romantic scenes and almost-missed situations.very last page was the only difference, but didnt make up for a yawn!

This book takes you into the time period flawlessly. You feel the rushes under your slippers and the breeze coming from the tapestry covered windows. Really a good intrigue and a book I couldn't put down. I have read all Of Ms Gleason's books, the Gardella series is one of my favorite series. This has no Vampy goodness but is still a wonderfully written book. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes the genre and even someone who thinks they might like to try it, you won't be disappointed! I've added 2 other books below that go with this book. Lavender Vows is the first of the series.

lot going on in this story. Love, kidnappings, murder mystery,betrayal,lust,greed. Good action, Maris the heiress, has everyone after her. The lands she is to recieve as lord Merle's only child are vast. Dirik shows up on a quest of his own. He must discover who murdered his father. Maris is attracted to Dirik, but being a third son puts her out of his reach. Her sudden kidnaping throws them back together again. She doesn't trust him and endeavors to save herself. These two keep crossing paths and sparks fly. The bad note if any in this book was the weak willed mother of Maris. all in all it was a good read.
