In 1485 England, Brother Reynold Wells, trained as a knight, rescues Lady Katherine Berkeley, who had been abducted to keep her quiet. To insure her silence, her kidnappers had arranged for Katherine to marry someone she did not wish to wed. Katherine finds her quiet rescuer odd and somewhat daunting. However, she knows that he is her only hope to reach King Richard and warn him of a treasonous plot, which is why her former kidnappers went to all this trouble to keep her mute.
As Reynold, who has not yet taken his priestly vows, escorts the beautiful Katherine, he begins to fall in love with her. Though she intended to wed someone else, Katherine returns Reynold's feelings. However, duty calls for him to safely escort her home even if doing this is more likely to kill the monk than the foes who chase after them.
In her debut novel, Gayle Callen provides readers of Medieval romance with a tender tale of love and honor. The story line provides a tasty picture of the fifteenth century. The characters, especially the tortured Reynold, will enchant fans of the era. Ms. Callen opens her writing career with a fine entry that is sure to gain her a fan following.

This story brought tears to my eyes at its very sweetness. I felt for Brother Reynolds struggle, with his vows and his guilt over the death of his brother. Reynold Welles is an unusual hero, so strong yet tender and compassionate. Devoting eight months of his life and fully willing to devote the rest of his life to the monastary to atone for the sins of his past. Katherine is a wonderful heroine. She distrust monks and at first in her mind, Brother Reynold is no better than the monks she has known. It does not take her long however to discover Reynolds true self behind his imense guilt. One of the best scenes in the story is the emotional scene as Reynold realizes what he has done in taking Katherines virginity. Tears were in my eyes as I read it! This is one of the best first novels I have ever read!!!!
