Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-seller Tamara Leigh returns to the medieval Age of Faith series with a romance three years in the making: Sir Durand's tale.
A vexing lady.
Answering her father's summons to return home, Lady Beata Fauvel must evade capture by noblemen who seek to wed a great heiress. But when she falls into the hands of Queen Eleanor of England, she discovers her sovereign has plans of her own for the lady known France over as The Vestal Widow. Now Beata must not only escape the knight entrusted with ensuring she does not wed without permission, but survive a storm-tossed sea and revelation of a long-buried secret that could destroy her family. And what of a heart that wants what it cannot have? Will it only ever beat for the queen's man?
A repentant knight.
For years, Sir Durand Marshal has faithfully served his queen as penance for betrayal of the Wulfrith family. When he rescues a woman pursued by vassals of the French king, he is charged with delivering to England the nearly scandalous lady who has only a name in common with the one he once loved. Though he never expects to feel anything beyond annoyance for the outspoken Lady Beata, he finds himself drawn to yet another woman denied him. Can he fulfill his duty to his liege? Or will he forsake his redemption and forever ruin his reputation - more, the lady's?

Great Story of Redemption, Forgiveness and Love

I loved the story of Durand and Beata so very much! What a powerful story of redemption, love, and a selflessness that was expected during the twelfth century.

But it was also a book of angst and trials and fear and even mystery...keeping me wondering about the final outcome. Durand and Beata were definitely unique characters who grew throughout the story and, certainly, grew on me, causing me to fret over their situation.

I also loved all the tie-ins to other favorite characters in this Age of Faith series. Overall this was definitely a 5 Star for me. (And apparently another addition to the series is coming in Spring 2018! Hopefully also available on Audible.)

Good narration as with this entire series.
