In the safety of her adoptive father's estate, south of London, Felise Scelfton is raised oblivious to the power of her beauty and rumors of her dowry. But when the knights of Windsor court brandish their swords and bid for her hand, Felise realizes she'd better keep her flirtatious tongue in check, lest her jests be taken as vows. Little does Felise know that King Henry II has already decided her fate - his royal command gives her hand to Sir Royce Leighton, the scarred and brooding lord of Segeland, in order to seal a political alliance. Despite the arranged marriage, desire blooms between the newlyweds and Royce finds his bitter memories fading in the presence of his alluring and nurturing young wife. But the King hasn’t had his last word just yet, and old suitors seek revenge. Court scandals are never simply forgotten and Felise and Royce must decide if their love can withstand the cruelest of betrayals.

I read so I can write
Historical romance is not Carr's best format. She does fantastic with modern day romance, witness the Virgin River series, but not here.
The story was too long, possibly in attempt to build historical scene setting. That really doesn't contribute.
The story was good but could have been better developed in itself.
Flosnik is a narrator you either love or hate. I love her.
I was not impressed with previous Robyn Carr historical romance books, but I took a chance on this one and I was not disappointed. The narrator was perfect, the story moves quickly and the romance had just enough heat.
If you like historical romance you will enjoy this one it's a easy read.
Not your run of the mill Historical Romance . A little slow at times, but kept my interests to the end.
The story begins at court in the late 1100's just before Elenore betrayed King John -- where the King arranged strategic marriages, where betrayals and intrigue ran rampant.
Anne Flosnik gave a great performance.
enticing and romantic
entire read was memorable since this was my first audible book!
Yes, but obviously not enough time in the day
I did not like the story line - I am a big fan of Robyn Carr, I will definitely stay away from this series if there is one
voice it didn't fit well with the character
I don't care for the new book covers that Robyn is using. The covers without the people are more plesant to the eyes.
