Publisher's Summary

The year is A.D. 1333. At the conclusion of the English victory of Halidon Hill, King Edward appoints Stephen of Pembury the Guardian Protector of the newly captured city of Berwick. To cement this victory, he orders Stephen to marry the defeated Scottish commander's daughter, the Lady Joselyn de Velt Seton. In a marriage meant to symbolize the English domination over the Scots, Stephen is nonetheless attracted to his new bride; a petite, raven-haired beauty with pale blue eyes. Joselyn is a lady with a horrific past and dark secrets of abuse. She is resistant to the marriage at first but eventually her attraction to Stephen proves too much to resist and the pair fall deeply in love. But even as their love blossoms, Scots insurgents counter attach Berwick and Stephen is taken prisoner. As the Guardian Protector of Berwick, he is a mighty prize for the Scots and his public execution has been ordered. Stephen's old friends, Tate de Lara (Dragonblade) and Kenneth St. Hever (Island of Glass) must plot Stephen's rescue even as Joselyn and unexpected allies launch their own rescue attempt. It's a race against time to save Stephen from the executioner's sword in this tale of conquest, dark secrets, and everlasting love.

Love thy enemy

What did you love best about The Savage Curtain?

I loved the fact the Stephen, the H, was such a compassionate man and healer as well as a fierce knight. I appreciated the inner strength of his love, Jocelyn, despite her history.<br/>I also think that the setting, in the castle during an extended battle, was a fascinating setting for this love story!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Savage Curtain?

I think that their less than auspicious begining was truly memorable! I can't imagine a more tragic first meeting. Well I could, but I wouldn't want one!

Which scene was your favorite?

I truly enjoyed the plotting and bravery of Cade and Roman. Those two are memorable characters in and of themselves, but their courage, and the humour surrounding some of their actions really set them apart.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think it was when Kenneth realized how and why one of his two best friends, Stephen, had fallen for Jocelyn. He was so thoughtful toward his friend's wife and his loyalty to that friend was not the only reason he felt the need to protect her. I believe he grew to respect and admire her as well. When he placed his hands on the sides of her face and turned away- I felt his angst over the situation.

Any additional comments?

This is a wonderful story and Tim Campbell did another fine job of narrating. I especially enjoyed his use of differing accents in this one! I recommend this audiobook to anyone who wants a terrific story!

Loved it!!

Any additional comments?

I love how Kathryn writes her characters. She weaves depth, emotion, love and despair to the very end. Tim did a good job narrating.
