Book Description

Aug 1994
The second in a planned quartet of medieval romances. Lady Phillipa of Lindhurst had been a prisoner in her husband's castle since her arrival there as a child bride. His current absence gives her a respite from his cruelty, but her dread of her husband's return pales in comparison to her terror of the handsome knight who suddenly rides into her life to sweep her away.

More About the Author

10 June, 2014


It's time to get serious about my writing again. That's been hard to do with my life framed by milking cows, making cheese and raising vegetables. But Faucon and Edmund, the sleuths from my new mystery series, are chattering away in my head, demanding that I at least start taking notes. Even more motivating is the fact that the temperatures here in Arizona have now climbed over the 100 degree mark. Air conditioning is a wonderful thing.

And now, back to your regular programming.

Denise Domning is the award-winning, best-selling author of eleven historical novels and the co-author with Monica Sarli of one gritty, hard-bitten memoir of addiction and recovery. Of the two genres she frankly prefers the rats, grime and fleas of the Twelfth Century over the ghettos and drug use of modern Kansas City. For Denise, writing means using words as her time machine and painting an accurate portrait of a past. Open any of her novels, whether Twelfth, Thirteenth, Sixteenth or Nineteenth Century, and step into a bygone era. As one reviewer put it "...you live the life and the language, smell the odors of unwashed humanity, and hear the sucking sounds as your flimsy shoes slog through mud and muck." Now doesn't that sound romantic?

Denise and her husband Ed live on a farm in Cornville (yes, Cornville), Arizona, where they plant veggies, milk cows and have an Easter egg hunt every day.

About the Author

Prior to publishing her first book, Denise Domning, mother of two and Scottsdale, Arizona, resident, owned two property management firms, invented an electrical lock and became CEO of her own corporation. "An obvious segue into a writing career," she jokingly states. Hailed by critics as a "superstar in the making" and a "first class writer on her way to the top", there can be no doubt of her success in this, Denise's newest field of endeavor. Her first medieval novel, Winter's Heat, received the Romantic Times award for "Best First Historical Novel of 1994". Spring's Fury, Autumn's Flame, A Love for All Seasons were respectively nominated by Romantic Times for "Best Medieval Novel" of 1995, 1996 and 1997. This year Romantic Times has nominated Denise for their "Career Achievement in European Romance" award. Her first Elizabethan novel, Lady in Waiting, was recommended by Publisher's Weekly as "well-written, wellresearched, with an accurate portrayal of Elizabeth" and has been nominated by Romantic Times this year for "Best European Novel of 1998". Coming to your book stores in October, 1999, is Lady in White, a Renaissance ghost story. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Summer Storm is the second of this series of five novels. Temric, the eldest FitzHenry brother, cannot look to marry a noble woman because he is his fathers's illegitimate son. Nor can he seek to marry a commoner because she would be beneath him. Phillipa is the same as he, born of noble blood but illegitimate - and already married to a nasty piece of work called Roger! How Phillipa and Temric find love and happiness is told by Denise with all the usual twists and turns, highs and lows that her fans have come to expect from her. This is the second book in a series of 5 and is every bit as gripping as the others. Definitely a 'to hell with the housework, I must read this to the end' novel. If you can read the series in order, do so - Winter, Summer, Spring, Autumn, A Love For All Seasons...

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Storm of Love 6 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Review taken from my Blog Post #392 in August 2013.

Possibly not so good as Autumn's Flame, which was Book 4 in her series) - that having been said it was still a good read. Nice simple plot, gentle pace and sweet characters.

As you can see from the fact that I've read Book 4, and now this one, that it is possible to read the series out of order.

The Author's attention to historical details is first class, and she shows such care in the way she crafts the story.

I wish she also took as much care with ensuring there are no typographical/grammatical errors. Unfortunately, you can find a couple of errors, but taken as a whole they didn't distract from the actual overall feel of the piece. For anyone interested there's a comprehensive list of errors and bug bears on my actual Blog Post.
