When Lady Alyse de Courcy is betrothed to Sir Geoffrey Longford, she has no choice but to make the best of a bad bargain. The hulking knight is far from her ideal man, and although he does possess some wit and charm, he is no match for the sinfully sensual man she secretly admires, Thomas, Earl of Braeton, her betrothed's best friend.
From the first, Sir Geoffrey finds himself smitten by Lady Alyse, and, despite her infatuation with his friend, vows to win her love. When Geoffrey puts his mind to wooing Alyse, he is delighted to find her succumbing to his seduction. But when cruel circumstances separate them, Geoffrey must watch helplessly as Thomas steps in to protect Alyse-and falls in love with her himself.
As the three courtiers accompany Princess Joanna to her wedding in Spain, they run headlong into the Black Plague. With her world plunged into chaos, Alyse struggles with her feelings for both the men she loves. But which love will survive?

I was giving this book in exchange for a honest review from the author. I must say I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I had never heard of the author and primarily only read paranormal books, however this book entranced me from the start. Jenna Jaxon is a fantastic writer. She knows how to draw the reader into the story and keeping them eagerly turning the page. She's eearned aspot among my favorite authors to read! The story is set in Europe in 1348 and spans several years. The focus is the Lady Alyse de Courcy, who is witty, loving, loyal and very entertaining. It follows her journey in finding love. I don't want to spoil the read so I will leave it at that. This is a great historical read; full of love, angst, action and passion. It has steamy sex scenes and is written in a manner that will keep you hurriedly reading page after page to see what happens to Lady Alyse and her suitors. I highly recommend this book!
