I enjoyed every moment of the journey for the poor couple Sir Rafe and Lady Angelet ?. Sad that she suffered at such an age. I wanted to know what actually happened to her family.

This is an overall good book: the characters have depth and the plots are believable. The author makes it an easy and enjoyable read with the right amount of romance and suspense (although the dialog gets a bit corny at the end of the book). Also, I think we missed some closure on the subject of Angelet's afflictions, after a certain point in the book they seemed to be forgotten. But anyway, I liked it because I cared about the characters and what happened to them and the book does take you back to the past.

This is the third story in this series and I loved it as much as I did the first two. This is Sir Rafe’s story, along with Lady Angelet d’Hiver’s. Life holds no joy for Rafe since he betrayed his best friends and then left them. He has been running for two years, attending one tournament after another, and always winning. He is now known as the Knight of the Raven—dressed in black with a raven on his chest and riding a black horse. He meets Lady Angelet when he is part of a small group who is to escort her to a nunnery. Of course, this trip isn’t her choice. Her father-in-law (Otto) sprung this on her with no warning, with no say from her. For ten years she has had a miserable life as a widow living with her in-laws, treated very poorly by them, had her son sent to another family for fostering, and had no contact with her own family for many years. On top of it all, she sometimes has “visions”, which has further complicated her life. A large chest of gold is being sent to the abbot of the nunnery. However, on the journey, one of Otto’s men tries to kill Angelet. Thank goodness for Rafe. Then later an attack by thieves on the road reveals that the chest of gold contains only rocks. Who stole the gold? Rafe is able to rescue Angelet (someone tries to kill her again) and they head south. Several attempts are made on Angelet’s life—one almost fatal—but Rafe gets her to the friends he betrayed at Castle Cleobury. Rafe is forced to stay at Castle Cleobury until Lord Rainald returns. He is the one who has had men looking for Rafe the last two years. We learn the reason Lord Rainald wants to see Rafe: to give him some very important information, not punish him for his betrayal. Rafe founds out who he really is, but also has to defend his actions with Angelet—did he steal the gold and did he kidnap her as Otto and his son claim. This story has a happy ending and I love the way it happens. Except for a couple sex scenes you can skip, I would recommend this book to anyone. It is an amazing story. There was sadness, happiness, suspense, and more. I loved this story! I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest opinion, which I have given.
