Publisher's Summary

1485 A.D. Adam Wellesbourne and his four sons - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John - comprise the most feared House in the service of Richard III. Adam's eldest son, Matthew, has earned such an influential reputation that throughout England he is known as The White Lord of Wellesbourne. Upon the eve of the Battle of Bosworth field, Matthew finds himself forced into a contract marriage that he has been avoiding for 10 years. He has no desire to wed the Lady Alixandrea Terrington St. Ave, but his father is insistent. The lady comes with a dowry of 400 fighting men, most important in these warring times. But a strange thing happens to Matthew the moment he meets his future bride; he is actually attracted to her. The Lady Alixandrea is beautiful, intelligent, and kind. But she is also unknowingly caught up in a deadly game of politics. Suddenly, a simple marriage becomes a deadly happenstance. As forces for both King Richard and Henry Tudor build toward the battle that will decide the future of England, Matthew is distracted by the woman he never wanted to marry. In this world where the politics of rival men vying for the throne control the fortunes of a nation, The White Lord of Wellesbourne is torn between the unexpected life he never thought to have and the warring life that he'd always known to be. Will lovely Alixandrea win him or will King Richard?

Medieval Heaven!!

Its truly wonderful when you find a book that has characters that you love and a story that makes you laugh and cry. This is a touching story of Matthew, a compassionate knight, and Alixandrea, a sweet lady, who are betrothed through an arranged marriage. This beautiful medieval book is filled with history, betrayal, passion, war, jealousy, secrets, loyalty, friendship, grief, and even some humor. It’s got it all.

It took me a while to adjust to the narrator, but he grew on me and overall he was very good.

I highly recommend this book if you enjoy medieval romances. Now, because I have to know Gaston's story, I'm off to listen to Dark One, Dark Knight.

Best Book I've Listen to in a Long Time!

I have 9 unheard books in my Library, because they could not hold my attention. But I was riveted to "The White Lord of Wellsbourne" from beginning to end. I have found a new favorite author. I read so much it takes a talented author to keep me interested. I'm already wanting to read/hear more from Kathryn Le Vegue.

I'm not going to write a summary of the book, because I think it is unnecessary, with what has already been said--but I do want to say this is not an insipid book in any way, it takes the reader through an array of emotions, but boredom is not one of them. It has everything that makes a book interesting: romance, intrigue, humor, suspense, likable characters.

This author is so good she does not have to use what I call "filler words", or be overly descriptive to depict people, battle scenes, gardens, etc. for the reader to be able to see them with their" mind's eye".

Knowing that in History, King Richard lost the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 to Henry Tudor, I wondered what would happen to Mathew Wellsbourne, a supporter of Richard? It was a surprising ending.

Great narration!
