But it is not the happy circumstance most men would see it as. Drake, a confirmed bachelor, cannot refuse the gift of a wife and is therefore forced to wed Lady Elisaveta du Reims, daughter of the last earl of East Anglia. Beautiful and intelligent, Elisaveta is English by birth yet of Scots and French blood, making her very much an enemy of England during these turbulent times. Although Drake is polite to her, he does not trust her. He does not want her. He cannot resist the feelings she stirs within him, but his instincts tell him to beware.
His instincts are correct; Elisaveta is not as she seems. Her heart belongs to France and to Scotland, but with the introduction of a new husband, her loyalties are torn. She, too, cannot resist the feelings the powerful young knight stirs within her.
Join Drake and Elisaveta on this unforgettable and passionate adventure.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Yes. I would make it more cogent. It seems to be inconsistent throughout. For example, some expressions are modern day, inconstancy of judgments, so-called honorable knights with dishonorable conduct, etc.
Would you be willing to try another book from Kathryn Le Veque? Why or why not?
Yes. Some of her books have shown continuity in both story-line and characters. Serpent was such a book.
Which scene was your favorite?
In the beginning when the armed de Winter family were looking for Drake de Winter to honor a wedding contract made by his parents.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Yes, if it was edited for continuity.
Any additional comments?
Brad Wills is a wonderful narrator, but sometimes one of the characters (either an overly rough male voice or shrill hag-like voice) will be hard to understand. In "Swords and Shields" it is Lady Elisaveta du Reims' grandmother.
