Ten years later, Fox becomes known as the Black Fox, in the tradition of Robin Hood, robbing the neighborhood to feed his people. His antics are specifically aimed at annoying his former friend Evan. Despite the fact that he's perceived to be an outlaw, a thief, and an outcast, Fox disguises himself and enters a tournament for Lady Jordan's hand. Fox's unexpected win results in his capture and imprisonment. When he escapes, he takes Jordan hostage, promising her release only in return for his family's title and lands.
Jordan's unexpected courage and compassion, especially for children, touches Fox's heart. While he wants to harden his heart against her, he can't the resist the temptation she presents. Unfortunately, Fox refuses to believe her protestations that she never turned her back on him. As they fall in love, however, they both must face the past and devastating truths of betrayal, greed, and cruelty. As dark secret comes to light, Fox must forget revenge if he wants Jordans.

With rich characterization and motivation carefully revealed, the novel recreates an era of passion and cruelty, of vengeance and turmoil, and of secrets exposed. While the plot echoes traditional formulas, the fresh details and depth of characterization present a unique twist resulting in a memorable tale. A keeper, CHAMPION OF THE HEART is very highly recommended.
The characters don't really stand up and impress the reader but the secondary characters are quite amusing.All in all a good book.
