Overview

A woman in hiding�

In order to find her father�s killer, Helena of York is forced to play the most dangerous game of her life. The Saxon noblewoman, now an outlaw, must adopt a false identity and pose as a Norman in the courts and great halls of Richard I�s England. Should she be unmasked, her life will be forfeit. But Helena is willing to pay any price for her revenge.


A man shunned�

Stephan, Count of Dinan, once Richard�s greatest friend and most able knight, finds himself an outcast from the court for reasons shrouded in mystery. Now known as the �Black Baron�, he finds himself friendless in a glittering world he has come to despise.


Two dangerous destinies�

The only goal in Stephen�s life is to restore his honor and once again serve his king. The only desire in Helena�s life is to kill the man who destroyed her father and her future. Then the �Black Baron�s� suspicions draw him into Helena�s web of deceit and, together they find themselves entangled in a greater conspiracy that threatens the throne of England itself�and two embattled hearts that have allowed themselves to be touched by love.

In 1197 Oxford, per the orders of King Richard, the Chief of Justicular Hubert Walters calls a meeting of the Great Council. Prince John¿s supporters prefer not to be there, but even the most loyal of Richard¿s lords would rather be elsewhere. Only the Black Baron Stephen of Dinan wants to attend. He gave an honest opinion to Richard several years ago and since has been in royal disfavor and everyone treats him with contempt. His only hope to regain his former status is courage by the King¿s side in war. Hubert informs Stephen he is not to attend the meeting........................... Stephen meets Isobel at the Great Council feast, but insists she is an imposter as he knew Isobel in Brittany. The woman masquerading as Isobel is actually Helena daughter of a deceased aristocrat murdered allegedly by a Saxon villager, but she believes a Norman lord did the dastardly deed. She has gone undercover to learn who murdered her father. Stephen soon helps Helena on her quest when attacks on her life begin. As they fall in love her heart remains filled with vengeance making little room for Stephen................................. HEART OF VENGEANCE is an exhilarating medieval romantic suspense novel that transports the audience to the late twelfth century through historical tidbits and persona interwoven into the delightful plot. Stephen and Helena carry heavy emotional loads so that love is out of the question for both of them yet neither can deny their feelings for the other. The support cast especially the also obsessed Prince John adds to the feeling of being in Oxford. Though one of the most frequently used eras in novels and movies, readers receive a refreshing vivid picture of courtly intrigue inside a fabulous love story......................... Harriet Klausner
