A.D. 1291: Keir St. Hever is a powerful garrison commander for Lord Coverdale on the border of the Cumbrian vales. Whilst attending battle, he receives word that his own castle is under attack. Keir returns to Pendragon Castle to discover that his wife and daughter have been murdered, and his young son is missing. So begins Keir's descent into hell and despair. Three years later, Keir is still searching for his son as he is called upon to rescue the family of an ally whose castle is under siege. Once Keir fights his way inside, the damsel he is supposed to rescue does not believe he is there to assist her and a great battle ensues. But somewhere during that battle, Keir finds a strange and uncontrollable fascination with the Lady Chloe-Louise de Geld. When she's not trying to gouge his eyes out, he catches glimpses of a woman of magnificent red hair, porcelain skin, and delicate features. And so, the love story begins....
Chloe is a much sought after beauty, brilliant, sweet and feisty. She awakens within Keir long-dormant emotions, feelings he believed died when his family perished. He doesn't want to love Chloe but he cannot help himself. His attention should be on finding his missing son but he finds it diverted by a woman he is falling more deeply in love with by the day. A vindictive and evil neighbor, however, who has wanted Chloe for his own, discovers St. Hever's interest and uses lies and manipulation to convince Keir that he has Keir's long-lost son. He proposes a trade - Chloe for the boy. Before Keir can make a decision, Chloe takes matters in to her own hands and the situation goes horribly awry.
Through death, battle, vengeful enemies and ghostly visitors, Keir and Chloe's love remains strong and unbreakable. In the end, Keir must once again wield his sword to save the woman he loves. With flashbacks of the family he was unable to save, will he be too late?

A Perfect Epithet
I think one of the most memorable moments of the story, without giving anything away to the listeners, is when Chloe turns to her father and tells him that she will make "this decision" for herself. She stands up to her father, when she has not done so in the past, and takes her fate into her own hands, all for the love of her life, Keir.
Tim Campbell is an excellent narrator- he brings the story to life giving each character their own voice and personality. I really enjoy his works! He narrates the Dragonblade trilogy, which this precedes, and it does so perfectly.
At one point in the story I was angry, at another I was so incredibly sad, this book really has the audience run a gamut of emotions. That is because of the writing and the narrator.
I loved this tale, it was amazing and truly enjoyable to listen to Tim Campbell narrate. I would definitely recommend it to others. ;)
Love romance novels, especially historical, mainly in the Medieval period. English Knights, Highlanders, and love me some Irish stories.
This story is one of my favorites. The beginning of this book pulls at your heart strings right away.
Kerr was my favorite character. His loss, feelings of despair and then growing feelings for Chloe was an interesting story.
I have listened to a few of Tim Campbell's audio's and so far, I like this one best.
The beginning was heartbreaking, feeling his despair. There were some funny parts I liked between his brother and the other Knights.
I love when I listen to a love story that makes me feel some high emotions, laugh, cry! This one had everything to please me, sadness, hope, forgiveness and passion. Another amazing medieval romance to add to your audio books repertoire!
My favorite moments are when sparks flare between Keir and Chloë! Beautiful chemistry between them!
Tim had the perfect voice for Keir St. Hever
No, I prefer to listen some 2 or 3 chapters , then enjoy the moment and come back later on.
If you love this audio, I recommend that you read also the book!
not my favorite of le veque's books. heroine so immature and knights made such poor choices for supposed warriors. their troubles became an irritation, but i still finished the book.
Kathryn Le Veque has created an amazing book. This is the story of Keir and Chloe and the tragedy of the past and the deep love they have for each other. I'm not going to go into the story but I highly recommend that if you want a story that will take you from emotional highs and lows and sadness to happiness, Fragments of Grace is the book for you. It is wonderful.Tim Campbell did a wonderful job in his narration. Can't wait to listen to Dragonblade. I'm sure it's just as fantastic as Fragments if that is possible.
Enjoyed the story. Liked the characters. Narrator was good. Narrator can make or break a book for me. This one was enjoyable.
