Overview

“Trust the man who wears a flaming crown and possesses the golden touch. Beware the blacksmith.” Cast out of Wales after her mother’s death, Keely Glendower travels to England to find her natural father, the Duke of Ludlow. She wears her magical dragon pendant and carries within her heart her mother’s prophetic words. Though there is no love lost between the Welsh and the English, Keely cannot resist the heated gaze of Richard Devereux, England’s wealthiest earl, the English queen’s “Midas”. Despite, her eccentric ways, Richard is drawn to Keely. Just gazing at the raven-haired, violet-eyed beauty kindles a passion he’s never known. Richard is a very determined man, but when a long buried secret is revealed, can the earl use his power to protect them or will his enemies destroy them both?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The author of Highland Belle and Desert Eden offers a flawed but bawdy romp through Elizabethan England by way of Melrose Place. Steeped in the Druidic lore of her dethroned Welsh ancestors, pagan princess Keely Glendower journeys to fulfill her mother's deathbed wish that she meet the powerful English duke who, unbeknownst to him, is her father. Accompanied by her oafish cousins, Odo and Hew, whose misadventures as highwaymen nearly cost them their lives, Keely is taken to heart and hearth by her ducal sire, if not by her half-sister Morgana, who is aghast at being replaced by a bastard in both her father's and neighboring Richard Devereux's affections. Esteemed throughout England for his Midas touch with the queen's coffers, Richard is charmed by the eccentric, innocent Keely. And as she is beset by troubling prophecies, troublesome spirits, bed-sporting courtiers, her jealous half-sister and other lurking treacheries, they are married with due pomp, imperiled and impassioned. While Grasso hits many a false note, sprightly prose infused with New Age paganspeak, enlivens the jarringly modern atmosphere and clunky sitcom sensibility. (Dec.)

I am new to this author and found her work very interesting. I haven't read very much of this genre so I don't know much about it but I love history and it was delightful to learn more about this era. I adored the heroine, Keely, and very much enjoyed how she stayed true to herself throughout the novel, even though she was tested many times. After the death of her mother, she is thrown out of her home by her step-father and must begin a journey to discover her birth father in another country. This causes a great deal of angst within her because she is from Wales and her birth father is from England and she doesn't like the English! But her mother, speaking on her deathbed, told her to go to him, so Keely, does. Her adventures would test even the strongest person but, as I said, she remains true to herself and doesn't let all the high brow, English wealthy royalty people destroy who she really is inside. She does meet her future husband, Richard, and she tests his patience constantly but through many trials, their love grows stronger. There is also a suspenseful element to the story. The secondary characters add a lot to the story as well. The author did a great job of making things historically accurate! I would recommend this!
