Overview

"This book certainly does NOT fit the usual romance formula, and is the better for it!" ~Suzanne G.

When Galeran of Heywood returns from the Crusades, longing for his wife, Jehanne, he finds his castle under siege and his wife alone with a child that is not his own.

Seeing Galeran alive was all Jehanne ever hoped for. But credible rumors of Galeran's death wrought dangerous folly that Jehanne never expected when they kissed goodbye three years prior.

Now enemies from church and state hover, looking for spoils, and Galeran and Jehanne must decide: find a way to forgive each other and fight together, or allow others to orchestrate their fate.

From the Publisher: Readers with a passion for history will appreciate the author's penchant for detail and accuracy. Fans of Elizabeth Chadwick, Bernard Cornwell and Philippa Gregory as well as Tamara Leigh and Suzan Tisdale will appreciate this medieval romance.

"...a powerful, thought-provoking romance." ~Romantic Times

"An entertaining, original read." ~The Romance Reader

"Readers who enjoy stories that have The Crusades as a backdrop will appreciate Ms. Beverley's fine romance." ~A Romance Review

Interesting, wonderfully flawed characters really grab you in this story. Also, it hits on getting past infidelity in a marriage which is a highly uncommon and unique theme to find in a romance novel. I enjoyed this beginning to end.

This book fell flat for me. It was supposed to be about a man back from the crusades, then all of a sudden it was all about his friend and his wife's cousin. It really did not complete the story of the original characters. I've never seen a story so poorly thrown together. I'm deleting this book and I won't read another of her books again. Oh and her love scenes are, I don't know what they are. Not steamy. Don't buy this book.
