Publisher's Summary

His surcoat still bloody from battle, William FitzAlan comes to claim the strategic borderlands granted to him by the king. One last prize awaits him at the castle gates: the lovely Lady Catherine Rayburn. Catherine risked everything to spy for the crown. Her reward? Her lands are declared forfeit and she is given this choice: marry FitzAlan or be taken to the Tower. Catherine agrees to give her handsome new husband her body, but she's keeping secrets, and dare not give him her heart. As passion ignites and danger closes in, Catherine and William must learn to trust in each other to save their marriage, their land, and their very lives.

Critic Reviews

"Set during the Welsh rebellion against the English, Mallory's debut is impressive. She breathes life into major historical characters and presents varied political viewpoints in a dramatic romance." ( RT Book Reviews)

Stong Heroine.

Got this book on a recent sale so I couldn't pass it up.

This one is definitely not the usual damsel in distress historical romance. The heroine, Catherine, is a strong and capable woman and William is a man who has many insecurities. Both of them have troubled pasts that make for a rocky relationship.

The story is interesting, well paced and the characters are intriguing. Although the story started out really good it slowly declined a bit about 3/4 into the book because I found Williams trust issues frustrating There were times I actually wanted to slap William! I know they both had a lot of issues to deal with but his insecurities seemed a bit over the top. Despite this the book is still worth listening to because it does redeem itself as many issues get resolved.

Since this book was a good foundation I will be listening to the others in this series. Also, the narrator is very good and I'm glad he is also narrating the next in the series.

Annoying romance

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I didn't like either of the main characters. The story wasn't that interesting either. Hope the rest of the series is better.
