Publisher's Summary

1266 A.D: A family feud has existed between the House of de Gare and the House of St. John for over 70 years. The feud has seen Eden Castle, home to the St. John's, grow stronger while Castle Winding Cross, lair of the de Gare clan, suffers. Furthermore, the House of St. John has bred the most fearsome warrior in the north of England, a powerful knight known throughout the land as the Demon of Eden. Christian St. John is the culmination of decades of fine breeding and training, a master of the knighthood.
When Christian launches what he hopes will be the final attack against Winding Cross to end the long-running feud once and for all, the de Gares are cunning enough to avoid complete destruction. Furious, Christian's father orders his son to breach the sanctity of the convent where the de Gare heiress has been hiding. The Demon is able to violate the convent and capture his quarry, but not without a fight. The Lady Gaithlin de Gare does not go easily with the Demon. A big woman with long legs and long blonde hair, she too has long been taught to hate the House of St. John. Christian escapes to the north with his combative captive and it is a long-running battle that takes them well into Scotland where Christian will hold the woman, demanding the complete surrender of her family's home in exchange for her life.
Join Christian and Gaithlin as they succumb to searing passion, torn between loyalties and long-standing hatred. As their families turn against them and Christian must face his warring family and answer for his crime of falling in love with the enemy, help and understanding come from the most unexpected of places. From the green forests of Cumbria to the wilds of Galloway, share Christian and Gaithlin's adventures of murder, betrayal, love, understanding, and of new beginnings.

Medieval "Family Feud" Love Story ;-)

This well written Medieval love story is quite different than most because this story is weaved around a generational family feud. Christian and Gaithlin find themselves torn between their passionate love and family loyalties. Its a story filled with adventure, honor, murder, forgiveness, and love.

Each chapter of this book begins with an excerpt of Christian's journal. These tidbits of his life are filled with adoration, deep emotion, challenges, and wisdom, which adds to the believability of this story.

A must read If you enjoy Medieval love stories.

Beautiful Love Story

I loved this book! I have read (and/or listened to) many of Kathryn Le Veque medieval novels, and I have loved every book from the many different series. The Warrior Poet is a truly beautiful love story. The addition of the beautiful quotes from the Chronicles of Christian St. John, and the story of the real Warrior Poet in the beginning of the book anchored the story with a sense of reality and truth. Warrior Poet is a very emotional and moving story. Love like that is truly eternal.
