Lady Clarice Margrave has spent her life hidden away from the world. Her father, step mother and step brother often travel, but she is told she must stay in the tower on their lands, and make sure nobody apart from the servants ever see her. She doesn't question why, but of course she isn't happy, her life is a lonely one.
Her father has always been loyal to the King so she is shocked and disbelieving when an army of soldiers ride hell for leather to the gates demanding to be allowed in. Their leader announces he has orders to search the castle for the Musgraves, especially her father, who has been charged with treason! Before she has chance to tell the guard to rise the portcullis the army forces it's way in and fights with whomever stands in their way. Clarice is quick to hide away and thankfully isn't found. After a search proves fruitless the army leaves, but not without raiding the stores and taking anything they needed.
Sir Ranulf, Lord of Sedgewic, is the Knight that leads the army of men. He is determined that he will find and arrest the Musgraves. A turn of events when he does have contact with Lord Musgrave under the guise of a peddler, has him wondering if the man isn't guilty of treason after all.
Clarice finds herself having to leave the safety of the castle, she is in search of somebody her father says will help her, the man known as the Red Wolf. During her escape in search of him though she is captured by none other than Ranulf.Read more ›

Frankly, that's quite impressive; historical accuracy in romances set in the Middle Ages isn't exactly a given (don't talk to me about potatoes). Knight Secrets, however, is an exception; meticulously researched and beautifully written, the historical knowledge of the author is very much on display here.
There are a few questions left unanswered in the book, but I suspect that's deliberate, with a few loose ends to be tied off in other books in the series. They don't detract at all from the story, which is an excellent, period-accurate romance.
I may be a picky bitch about misogyny in contemporary romance novels, but frankly in a historical of this period I'd think it was inaccurate if the man WASN'T convinced of his own superiority. Everything about the world at that time only confirmed it. Ranulf, however, never gives in to his baser urges despite knowing that nobody would ever call him on it. He lets Clarice have her self-respect, and it makes for a thoroughly charming yet still believable romance.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'll be looking out for more of C.C. Wiley's work in future. 5 stars.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for review through NetGalley.
This was a clean romance so not graphic love scene but it does have some build up.
