Lady Maybelle's life had been very difficult with a rascal of a father whose temper had made them flee from their ancestral home to live off the charity of others. Due to unfortunate circumstances, she was forced into an engagement with Rambaud de Montbryce, a man she'd never met. When she did meet him and began to feel somewhat happy about the upcoming nuptials, he refused to follow through with his father's plans and he virtually left her at the alter.

As it turned out, they had met previously at the river (her half naked) where he took one of her remarks out of context and set a whole new direction to a love story now complicated by misunderstanding.

Because Ram was a famous warrior, he left the upkeep of the castle and the welfare of his betrothed with his father and took his men to fight a brewing war. Ms. Markland described the battle that waged between the Saxons and the Normans so extraordinarily well that one could visualize the horror of the bloody fight. History woven perfectly into description kept the story realistic and so enjoyable, I was sorry to see the book end.

Being first and foremost a romance lover, I wasn't disappointed at the continuing love story between the hero and heroine. Even when separated, the romance blossomed and their relationship kept me intrigued.

With lines such as - "I will pursue the King's peace with warlike fervour." - I have to applaud this work and can't wait until the next book "A Man of Value" is released.

Wow, loved this book. It kept me reading until 2am last night. I had to force myself to put it down to go to bed. The history and setting is so well done that I was transported back to the time, the clothes, food and the battles. This author certainly knows her history. I did a project on the Battle of Hastings as a child and reading about the battle, I remembered traipsing across fields near Battle in Sussex mapping out the battle fields and looking for the spot where Harold died. Mabelle and Ram are both great characters, both interesting and sympathetic, but definitely products of their times. If you enjoy historical romance that is well researched and firmly rooted in real historical events then this is the book for you.

This is the first book in the series. If the others are half as good I will be a happy girl. The characters are strong and I fell in love with them straight away. If history had been shown like this when I was at school I would have paid much more attention in class. I really enjoyed reading this and am going to read the second in the series ( A Man of Value) now because I can't wait to meet these characters again. If you like your historical romance to be passionate without being crude. Then this author is for you.

I am an avid reader of historical novels especially of the medieval period but this one didn't quite cut it. I bought it because it was one of the cheaper ebooks available at 72p, unfortunately I don't think it was worth it.

Its a good start, young fiery woman who has had a hard time in life is betrothed to the handsome warrior etc etc but the book just doesn't flow! The prose is quite jerky and I felt like the author had read various history books and was throwing the facts she learned from them in willy nilly. I presume it was an attempt to paint an authentic historical atmosphere, but it felt like they were there just for the sake of it, in a, 'look i've dne my reseach so im putting it in' kind of way. Other authors have managed it much more subtly. The characters are generally one dimensional and unconvincing, the 'hero' Rambaud or 'Ram' getting another woman pregnant after meeting and falling in love with the heroine, hardly the stuff we women fantasise about, which is a shame. By the end it's quite difficult to really care either way.

Overall not the worst I've read but there are much better.

I bought this book on the strength of the synopsis, which I thought sounded promising, sadly I was wrong. I only read to the end of chapter six before giving up. The plot is solid enough but the author's ham-fisted storytelling just doesn't work for me. I hate that my very first review is a negative one, but the golden rule in storytelling is 'show don't tell' and there was far too much telling and not enough showing in the chapters I read to grip me. That said, if you don't mind wading through the randomness of dropped in descriptions and details and clumsy chunks of backstory, then maybe this is a book you'll enjoy.
