Valiant Chaos | [Kathryn Le Veque]

Valiant Chaos

Brogan is a very large man with power and skill, but uneducated due to his family's immigrant social standing. He meets our heroine by chance, a member of the mighty de Nevilles, the most powerful ruling family in England. The Lady Avalyn du Brant's uncle is the all-powerful Richard Neville, "The Kingmaker". Although Brogan knows she is out of his league, he is nonetheless taken by her. Avalyn, too, is intrigued by the big soldier with the heavy accent and menacing presence.

Publisher's Summary

Listeners take note: This work was originally published under the title For Love and Honor, but it had been reissued with a new ending and bonus chapters!

1469 A.D. - Brogan d'Aurilliac is a master sergeant in the infantry of Edward IV. The son of a Germanic knight, he came to England at his father's death and worked his way up through the ranks of the infantry to become the king's highest ranking soldier. Brogan is a very large man with power and skill, but uneducated due to his family's immigrant social standing.

He meets our heroine by chance, a member of the mighty de Nevilles, the most powerful ruling family in England. The Lady Avalyn du Brant's uncle is the all-powerful Richard Neville, "The Kingmaker". Although Brogan knows she is out of his league, he is nonetheless taken by her. Avalyn, too, is intrigued by the big soldier with the heavy accent and menacing presence. What starts out as pity for the man turns to something else and her uncle, used to meddling in people's lives, seeks to separate his niece from Brogan by betrothing her to a powerful but foolish baron.

Yet Avalyn is intelligent; she takes charge of the situation and, like a great chess match, seeks to beat her uncle at his own game. Brogan, the man that enemy and ally alike call "The Monster" in battle, offers support and affection such as Avalyn has never known in this story of reversal of roles.

She is the 'smart and cunning' one in this battle to save her relationship with Brogan from her uncle's destruction.

    Story
    "I'm so relieved she rewrote the ending"

    This is a rewrite (and re-titling) of an earlier Veque novel, For Love and Honour. I'm so glad she did the rewrite. While the original ending may have been more correct for that time, as a romance it didn't work for me. If I wanted a depressing romance, I'd read Thomas Hardy. Thanks for the rewrite, Kathryn Le Veque - I love your medieval romances.

    Yes I definitely would recommend this to a friend it was a wonderful book and I just loved the end when they were together in a new country with their children.

    It shows that no matter if you are rich, poor or from different backgrounds love can always make it work.


    What does Tim Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emotion and a feeling of being there with the characters


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

    Yes. I cried but they were happy tears.


    Any additional comments?

    I have all of Kathryn Le Veque audiobooks and can't wait for her new book coming out the end of October. I find from her website that some books are not available in audiblebooks and wish something could be done about it.
