Publisher's Summary

England, 1308. Three noblemen secretly gather to ally against their treacherous lord. But though each is elevated to a baron in his own right and given a portion of his lord's lands, jealousy and reprisals lead to a 25-year feud, pitting family against family, passing father to son.
England, 1333. The chink in Baron Boursier's armor is his fondness for a lovely face. When it costs him half his sight and brands him as one who abuses women, he vows to never again be "blinded" by beauty. Thus, given the choice between forfeiting his lands and wedding one of his enemies to end their feud, he chooses as his betrothed the lady said to be plain of face, rejecting the lady rumored to be most fair.
On the eve of the deadline to honor the king's decree of marriage, the fair Elianor of Emberly takes matters into her own hands. Determined none will suffer marriage to the man better known as The Boursier, she sets in motion her plan to imprison him long enough to ensure his barony is forfeited. But when all goes awry and her wrathful enemy compels her to wed him to save his lands, she discovers he is either much changed or much maligned. And the real enemy is one who lurks in their midst. One bent on keeping the feud burning.

Superb writer!

If you want to hear a great story and superbly gifted story-teller of historical romance look no further. Her writing is so fresh and thoughtful. The only reason for the four stars is that she bailed out on the romance of the bedroom scenes, leaving them to ones private imaginings for the most part. It kind of lost some of the build up for that though. Overall though a much -remembered author.
