AD 1320 - Madelayne Gray d'Ebreux is the queen of all that is lost. Her child, her husband...everything. Or, so she thinks. The same battle that killed her husband resulted in the serious injury of her husband's commander, Sir Kaspian St. Hever. As Kaspian lays badly wounded, Madelayne is asked to tend to the man in a most unconventional and intimate way. Instead of using her milk to nurse her child, who was born dead, she nurses a man who is forbidden solid foods because of a belly wound. And so, an unusual and sometimes erotic relationship develops between Madelayne and her patient.
Kaspian is tended by a woman who offers him her breasts as way of sustaining his life. At first, he looks at the situation as a necessity, but he soon comes to crave it. He struggles to keep his feelings from the widowed woman, but it becomes increasingly difficult. For a man who has known little compassion or kindness in his life, Madelayne comes to represent everything he has been missing. She soon becomes to represent everything he wants, and he wants her.
Join Madelayne and Kaspian on their journey through life, loss, lust, and passion in this adventure-packed and unconventional medieval romance. Can Madelayne finally change her stars with Kaspian's help?

I did not read the book but enjoyed the audio.
I know nothing to compare it to. Much of the book's content is quite unique; like when Madelayne fed the knight with a stomach wound her mother's milk to keep him alive.
Hearing him read the book is like watching a movie or play. He has the ability to change the different character's voices so they are clearly identifiable. Each voice seems to fit the character portrayed. Brad Will's voice for Sir Kaspian St. Hever was excellent, as well as Madelayne Gray d'Ebreux's. The old healer's voice was irritating and sometimes hard to understand, but you certainly knew who it was when he spoke.
Both, laugh and cry.
There are some phrases and scenes that would be very improbable in 1320 AD, like "eye candy", etc. It didn't flow as well as some Le Vegue books, but still entertaining. Bottom line; it's a lot of entertainment in 8+ hours. Well worth a credit.
Love A Good Story Epecially w/Romance🔹I Review in Varied Genres w/No Spoilers 🙊Appreciate My Yes or No Votes -Diversity At Its Best! 💕
It's been a while since I've read anything by Kathryn Le Veque so during a recent sale I snatched this one up. I don't think I've ever been disappointed in any of her books. You can always count on a good story with adventure, engaging characters, romance, and love!
if you've read the Publishers Summary you know that the story-line of this book is very unconventional or unusual, but I have to say it works. It is written so eloquently that the story doesn't feel perverted or disgusting. You realize how unselfishness and embarrassment sometimes can bring about a greater good.
Brad Wills is the narrator King of Medieval type books. He truly enhances the listening experience. ;-)
This is a Adult only listen as there is descriptive sex and language.
This is the first audio e-book that I have listened
to and I think I will be very spoiled. The book of course was one of her best.
I could listen to Brad Wills telling Kathryn Leveque or Suzan Tisdale stories 24 hours a day for the rest of my life and be as happy as a lark! I have read over 50 of her books and listened to a couple now on Audible by this narrator. His portrayal of the characters is amazing! I'm certain Kathryn wrote this book with those exact voices in her head! I just loved the grumpy, but lovable physic! :-)
Love romance novels, especially historical, mainly in the Medieval period. English Knights, Highlanders, and love me some Irish stories.
What a great story by Kathryn Le Veque and the narrating was out of this world! The story of loss, triumph and love woven by Ms Le Veque is so touching. Brad Wills voice for Kaspian St. Hever was so seductive, just WOW! Love this story and recommend.
Written by the Queen of Medieval romance Kathryn Le Veque and the powerful voice of the King of narration Brad Wills. This has some erotic in it but it contributed to spice in the tale. Filled with great emotion brought to life by Brad. The best one I have listened to yet and I have listened to many. Congratulations to you both. I would recommend this highly. I won't tell you about the story but it is a must buy!
I was intriqued with the synopsis of this latest LeVeque story. Initially the premise was a little off putting, but found the story tastefully done. I was very taken with the characters. The only negative was the narrator's portrayal of the physic. The voice was extremely harsh and grating, all the others were well done with lots of emotion. LeVeque continues to please and is one of my favorite authors.
