Her father sought a protector for her. What he found was a dishonorable knight who put his sword in her father's back and held Lady Alina captive for three years, locked away in a tower until her true champion arrived. While everyone else believes that Alina is the treasure her suitors seem willing to kill to attain, she is drawn into discovering the truth behind the lure of Leawick Castle. Along the way, she learns the true value of love, loyalty and honor from the handsome knight who not only saves her father's legacy, but restores her faith in the wake of bitterness left from her ordeal.

Another outstanding free book! I couldn't put it down and loved the leading lady! She was strong and vulnerable, and through her horrible ordeal at the hands of the man who killed her father, still managed to maintain a sense of innocence and wonder. If you're not simple-minded, you will enjoy this book. I've actually read it twice now. And will probably read it again and again. Don't miss this one.
This book is full of different characters and intrigue and did I mention different characters? Characters with names like Alfred and Aldridge; that if you didn't pay attention to the never ending conversation; you would not know one from the over! I do not mind the fact that the conversations' mimic old English but I done like the fact that events are described in conversation form. Oh, and Alfred and Aldridge are dead, (one is a good guy the other is isn't) and there are never ending convention ( held by other people) discussing what they did. One is tempted to skim the conversation, but the story is so convoluted that if you did just that you'd be lef scratching your head! Maybe I'm a little to simplistic in my preferences in books, maybe that was exactly what I was looking for. Instead I found this to be a readymade script for a play or a movie
