The Lady of the Forest by Barbara Bettis

When her elderly husband dies, Lady Katherine fakes her own death and disappears into the forest with others escaping the brutish new lord. Determined to protect her people, she knocks the wrong man senseless. But Lord Henry isn't an enemy, he's the brother of her childhood friend. Although his tender confidence tempts her, she's bound by duty.

Henry of Chauvere has found the one lady he wants for his own, never mind she's tied him hand and foot. When he learns the king has ordered her to wed Stonehill's ruthless new master, he insists Kate seek haven with his sister. But she won't desert her friends. Henry vows to solve her problem, provided he catches a traitor before the threat from Kate's past catches her.

When a daring rescue compels Henry and Kate to join forces, their attraction grows into love. If only duty didn't drive them apart.

Two Types of Knights. The new master at Stonehill Castle believes Lady Katherine dead. That suits the widow just fine. She prefers living as the boy Cade in the forest and offering small comforts to her people over marriage to the stranger. Lord Henry seeks a traitor. His plans go awry as he follows his prey toward Stonehill. He’s ambushed, by Cade/Katherine. Freed by her, he’s imprisoned by the unhonorable knight in charge at Stonehill as an imposter. Cade and her small, loyal band enable Lord Henry’s escape. Then they struggle to stay one step ahead of the traitor and his allies. Ms. Bettis demonstrates her skill weaving a plot full of twists and turns. From the very first scene I was cheering for the triumph of honor and love.

I loved The Lady in the Forest! If you've read other books by Ms. Bettis you'll already be familiar with the names of Katherine and Henry...but to actually get to read their story was a real treat! Katherine is brave and fearless (just the way I like my heroines to be) and Henry is the yummy type of hero I've grown to love in Ms. Bettis' stories! This one shouldn't be missed! And if you've looking to give Ms. Bettis' writing a try, this could be a great starting point! You won't be disappointed!

Kate is forced to flee to the forest to protect herself from another marriage and her people. Lord Henry bears the brunt of her attack on the wrong person as she discovers an old friend. He sweeps in to find the answer to her dilemma and find a true love. This is from the Knights of Destiny series and really enjoyed this cast of characters. From the first page was swept back to medieval times immersed in this tale of right and wrong. Find a comfortable seat since you won't want to put this one down. Ebook from Netgalley and publishers with thanks. Opinions are entirely my own.
