A Winter Ballad by Barbara Samuel

A full length historical romance from seven-time RITA winner Barbara Samuel. Fans of Jo Beverley, Eloisa James, and Stephanie Laurens will love Barbara Samuel's passionate, intelligent romance novels.

Anya of Winterbourne had suffered nothing but humiliation at the hands of men. And yet when she found a fallen knight in a still winter forest, she could not leave him to die.


Weary of battle and pursued by assassins, Christian de Moreerx would have liked nothing more than to stay at Winterbourne and champion the elusive and beleaguered Lady Anya. But his past contained a secret he had to decipher if he was to live, and his presence could only bring more disaster to the manor.


To thwart their separate enemies, Lady Anya and her broken knight battle virulent forces and face death itself to win the love that would long be sung by troubadours as� A WINTER BALLAD

I loved this book! It was absolutely amazing! I finished it the day I started it. I could not put this book down. I'm feeling quite generous, so if anyone does not have the $0.99 to buy it can contact me and I'll lend it to you. This book is a Lend Me! :) And if anyone has another Barbara Samuel book that is a Lend Me I would be quite happy if you'd share with me. :) It would be awesome! Hope my review helped.

Didn't know if I would like this book...but I really got into it. Try it,...you'll like it. The story was different than the usual "romance" novel we are used to. I enjoyed it very much.

The perfect well-told tale to whisk the reader away from the doldrums of everyday life. A handsome knight is rescued and nursed back to health by a headstrong woman who works very hard not to lose her land to one of her selfish brothers.

This one's another favorite story of mine. I loved the whole theme of the lady of the keep finding the wounded knight and nursing him back to health. It's a perfect setting for a romantic tale. I am very happy to be able to reread this one again!
