For Amiria of Berwyck, defeat does not come easily as she watches her home and clan being ripped asunder. When the very enemy who has laid siege to her home demands her fealty, she will do whatever it takes to protect her people, including a hastily concocted ruse that quickly begins to unravel. All too soon she starts to question whether she can forgive herself for betraying those she has sworn to protect.
Dristan of Blackmore, champion knight of King Henry II, has a reputation to uphold as the Devil's Dragon. After his invading army conquers Berwyck castle, he sets out to manage the newly claimed estate by training its knights in the art of proper defense. At first everything appears as it should be, or does it? Betrayed by those he believed he could trust, he must first set aside his anger before he can make room in his heart for love.
Together they are tied by an unspoken bond. As they begin to rebuild the land and unite their people, forces beyond their control attempt to tear apart their fragile truce, and only time will tell if love will forever bring them together.

Enjoyable Medieval Romance!
If My Heart Could See You by Sherry Ewing is a good medieval story set during the time of King Henry II. Dristan of Blackmore is one of the King's most trusted knights who is sent to the north to conquer Berwyck castle and its holdings. As his prize in doing so, the King instructs Dristan to wed the eldest daughter of the keep to unite the two lands. After the dust settles, the daughter in question, Amiria, is no where to be found. Instead Amiria decides to pretend to be her twin brother who she believes to be dead. Little did she anticipate that Dristan would take the lad/lady to be his squire and it's inevitable that they will soon end up together.
Although it seemed to take me a couple of tries to get into the rhythm of the story (I would have preferred less 'twis, 'kin and mayhap language), once I did, I really enjoyed the story of Berwyck Castle and it's inhabitants. There are several good side stories going along, and when more than one couple gets married, I can't help but feel like I've won bonus prizes. I especially liked how the sex was done all behind "closed doors" - you knew it was happening without all salacious details.
Marian Hussey narrated and did a great job! She had different voices for each character, both young and old and male and female. I especially enjoyed the younger brothers and sisters voices as they were very authentic - one of them plays a pivotal role at the end, so perhaps that is why it's so memorable. Because of Marian's narration, I enjoyed listening to this book much more than I would have if I had only read it - at 10 1/2 hours in audio format, that's saying something! I received a copy of this audio in exchange for an honest review.
