I was so happy to see Tamara Leigh released a new book, I'd been wondering what had happened to her. She was missed by me and many others. There are very few books that I keep around, most I give away, but Tamara Leigh's books all have a place on my shelf. I believe that 'Blackheart' is one of her best and I'm sure will do well at the bookstore. I was pleasantly surprised with all the twists and curves this story presented...just as a roller coaster. There are not many books that I can say were worth the money, I liked it so much I went out and purchased another 3 to give to my friends. This powerfully and beautifully written story not only has the most original plot I've seen in a while, but it's characters are so realistic they make you believe in them. As soon as you put the book down, your mind starts wondering what's going to happen next, so much so that you are drawn to continue reading. As for the pace, there wasn't much chance to breath. Be prepared to be touched, the trials and triumps that Juliana and Gabriel face make you believe that love truly exists. If you don't mind your emotions being played with, this books for you. I can't wait for the sequel, as a matter of fact, Tamara's address is in the bookcover, I've already written a letter to her letting her know how much this powerful story meant to me. There are not to many authors who'll put their address down where you can write to them. Tamara is definately a people person and must enjoy hearing comments, good or bad, I'm sure many will have the same comments I had to this book. Tamara Leigh, welcome back, you were truly missed..your inspiring books throughout my years of reading, bring joy, laughter and tears. Though many books can do that, not as many have I had so much enjoyment reading.

You've gotta love this hero. Gabriel is not only a 'man's man', but manages to be a 'woman's man' as well. He's dark, dangerous, downright sexy, and set on revenge agaisnt the woman who has stolen a child from him. Not to worry, though. Juliana holds her own. As for the plot, don't expect any contrivances to keep this story going. Tamara Leigh's deft pen will send you on a roller coaster of emotional highs and lows that take your breath away! It was so nice to look up and see Tamara's name looking back from the cover of her new book. I have really missed having a guarenteed good read!

In 1187 England, Arnault De Vere overhears his dying wife confesses to a priest that she had lovers around the time her two oldest sons were born. Though he loves his oldest boy Gabriel, Arnault decides that the family barony will go to his third son, who no doubt comes from the De Vere seed. Gabriel leaves with a heart filled with hatred towards his deceased whore of a mother and his father whom ¿cast him out¿ without challenging his mother.

In 1195, Lord Bernart Kinthorpe decides he wants an heir to mostly shut up rumors about his impotency. He orders his virgin wife Juliana to take a lover or her sister would face his wrath. She seduces Gabriel and to her surprise enjoys the lovemaking between them. Juliana becomes pregnant, but also realizes she loves Gabriel. He wants Juliana as his wife and to raise his child, but Bernart has other plans for his spouse, his former friend, and their child.

BLACKHEART is a powerful medieval romance that provides the audience with a strong sense of the era due to realistic cast and their interrelationships. The players propel the plot forward as the strange love triangle forms. Fans of the sub-genre will find Tamara Leigh¿s character-driven novel so enticing, they will seek other books by this wonderful writer.
