The Lady Ellowyn de Nerra, granddaughter of the great mercenary Braxton de Nerra, has been sent to London by her crippled father to collect the men he has donated to the Black Prince’s wars in France. De Nerra men are mingled with the Duke of Exeter’s men and Ellowyn is at the dock when the duke disembarks his ships. In her attempt to introduce herself to Brandt and explain her purpose, the duke has little time for the beautiful young woman and mistakes her for a whore. Grossly insulted, Ellowyn threatens the man that all sane men fear.
And so begins the fiery, passionate, and deep love story that transcends families, kings, and two continents, building to the Battle of Poitiers where Brandt is on the front lines. In battle, no man is his equal but even the most powerful of men are prisoners of their own hearts.

review of lord of war: black angel
Would you listen to Lord of War again? Why?
I love audiobooks especially this one and have all of Kathryn's ebooks which I have read numerous times now to have this book in a different format is just all the more the best! Even though it took me a while to like the narrator's voice and I couldn't really imagine it as Brandt's voice. His voice I felt was perfect for Ellowyn's. As the book progressed I did start to like it anyway and I will definitely listen to it again!
What did you like best about this story?
Yes, I do have a soft spot for the romance but the battles and action which I rather enjoyed are just so descriptive and it really feels like I am actually there and so real! Brandt the hero is just a wonderful guy tough by nature but really deep down has a heart of gold and Ellowyn the heroine isn't afraid to stand up too anyone even the black angel Brandt who all men fear? Both characters are just amazing!
Which scene was your favorite?
The first scene when Brandt and Ellowyn meet and he tells her to "be gone wench" Ellowyn's reaction to being brutally rebuffed had me giggling and laughing.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I just loved the whole book and Ms. Le Veque can surely bring almost every emotion into play one moment I'm laughing the next I'm crying. As I stated above laughing at Brandt's and Ellowyn's first meeting. Then I was crying when Dylan was killed in the battle of Poitiers. I just loved his character so much and didn't want this too happen. Poor Alex and Annabeth!!! I am amazed how she is able to spin such a wonderful tale of love, loss but a happy ending as well!!!
Any additional comments?
I would have to say even though there is no explicit sex scenes described in detail which I am most grateful for. Plus, the book doesn't lose it's intensity despite not having any sex described in graphic detail the love that Brandt and Ellowyn speaks volumes without it. There is still a hidden implication of their joining and you could kind of surmise it happening which is fine by me but I wouldn't recommend the book for anyone younger than 14 years old. I don't know if I would want a 11 or 10 year old listening to it despite how grown up they are.

Loved the story
But wish Kathryn had used another narrator. Had I looked more carefully at the narrator of this novel I would not have purchased it. He puts me to sleep. The story is wonderful and I am a huge fan of Kathryn Le Veque’s historical novels. So glad I buy her books as well. For then I can read the parts I fell asleep in. Can not wait for her next novel.
