Publisher's Summary

A. D. 1326 - Tate Crewys de Lara is the son of kings. The illegitimate son of Edward Longshanks, Tate has the qualities of a magnificent king. But fate is cruel, leaving him a mere knight protecting young Edward III during the uncertain days following the horrific murder of Edward II.

While gathering allies for the young heir in Northumberland, he meets the Lady Elizabetha "Toby" Cartingdon. Daughter of the Lord Mayor of Cartingdon Parrish, Toby is a gorgeous woman with a mind for business. It is she who runs the parrish, not her father. Taken aback by the strong, bitter female, Tate is nonetheless intrigued with her. He soon discovers why Toby seems so hard; her father is a drunkard and her mother is an invalid, leaving Toby responsible to not only provide for the family, but also for the welfare of her small sister.

Feeling something more than curiosity, Tate begins to break through the hard surface to discover the warm and compassionate woman beneath. Yet factions who would see the young heir dead make a sudden appearance, drawing Toby into their malevolent plan. Soon she finds herself linked to both Tate and the quest to take the throne from Roger Mortimer. It becomes Tate's destiny to not only win a throne for young Edward, but to win Toby's heart as well.

    "Best Knights!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dragonblade to be better than the print version?

    I loved the print version of Dragonblade, which is why I bought the audiobook. The audiobook, narrated by the talented Tim Campbell, really made the story come alive! I LOVED it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragonblade?

    There were so many "moments" in this story for not only Toby and Tate, but the ancillary characters as well. I enjoyed the relationship between the knights, their joking, and their pranks, especially with their young squire.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There is a scene, at the end, when Toby uses her acting ability to save Tate. It is daring, and funny, and I thought it was perfect!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Toby suffers a great loss during the book, and without giving anything away, there is a scene that really made me feel the ache of her character's grief.


    Any additional comments?

    Tim Campbell did a wonderful job narrating the first of this trilogy- I can't wait to hear the rest!

    "Oh, that vexing thing called writing!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure... I do love a good romance, but I'll stick to Austen, I guess.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kathryn Le Veque again?

    Nope


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was a male. The worst part was the 'voice' he gave to this novels main character. In my mind she was an excessively emotional drag queen performing on steroids. The English accent was unhelpful.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It sounded ok sped up. Clear. Very easy to hear over dish washing and in car. Often forgot my player on when I put down my phone only to pick it up and realize that it was just fine to continue from there.


    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps I should not trust the most popular titles on audible?
