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.

    "Enjoyed this book"

    Really enjoyed this book the narrator was very good. The story was just as good. A must listen to. But like in all my reviews I wish a female could do the female parts. Even though the narrator did a good job.

    My favorite books are 'Historical Romance'. A good book takes you away from your everyday life & puts you in the middle of an adventure.

    Story
    "Sir Christian captures your soul."
    What made the experience of listening to The Warrior Poet the most enjoyable?

    This book has become one of my top two favorite books. It is so well written. You will fall in love with Sir Christian. This book took my breath away and kept every second of my attention. I cannot express what a great story this is and the talent of Kathryn Le Veque. She has a gift and you are truly missing out, if you're not reading or listening to her stories. This book delivers you back in time on a exquisite journey of incredible love, intrigue and sensuality. Don't overlook the opportunity to discover the incredibly talented writings on Kathryn Le Veque. This is a must read.


    What other book might you compare The Warrior Poet to and why?

    As far as writing skill and talent, the only other book that I liked as much as this one is Outlander by Diana Galbadon.


    Which character – as performed by Kiff VandenHeuvel – was your favorite?

    Sir Christian. Mr. VandenHeuvel has a smooth, deep, sexy voice. I could listen to him all day!


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

    I laughed and cried throughout this book. It was a wonderful journey.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book!

    "Loved this story!!"

    Another winner by this author. I love having the narrator being a man. The Highland warriors just need to be done by a man. Great story line with likable characters. Just enough romance, passion and turmoil. Worth a credit or purchase!!

    Story
    "This on stands out for me"

    It seems in this genre there are few books that get it right on both story and narration. Ms Le Veque's story was great. I love to listen to people speak. Kiff VanderHeuvel is awesome! I found myself going back to listen again to certain parts to make sure I didn't miss anything. More, please!
