Publisher's Summary

England, 1308. Boursier, De Arell, Verdun - three noblemen who secretly gather to ally against their treacherous lord. Though each is elevated to a baron in his own right and given a portion of his lord's lands, jealousy and reprisal lead to a 25-year feud, pitting family against family, passing from father to son.

England, 1333. When Lady Quintin Boursier leads an army against the Baron of Blackwood to demand the release of her abducted brother, she finds the same fate awaits her. Now she must free herself and discover where Griffin de Arell holds her brother before her family's lands are forfeited. But as the long winter nights unfold and those prowling the black wood move the feud nearer its deadly end, Quintin realizes she may have wronged her captor. And he is as much a captive to her - she whose secret will spoil the prize others seek to make of a woman no man should want.

Baron Griffin de Arell protects those who belong to him, and now that the tempest who dared put a blade to his throat is his, he intends to protect her - if only from herself. However, Quintin Boursier yet has games to play. Though Griffin resists her wiles, when it appears her family's lands are forfeited, a glimpse of her woman's heart tempts him to make the lady his in truth. Now with the enemy responsible for inciting the feud determined to claim her as his prize, Griffin must join his grudging allies in bringing peace to their lands and protecting the woman who first set herself at his walls - then his warrior's heart.

Join Griffin and Quintin in the third and final book in this best-selling medieval romance series as the Boursiers, De Arells, and Verduns seek the light at the end of their long, dark feud.

I hate when this Happens!

Any additional comments?

I read the first two books in the Feud Series then this one. Ugh! One third of the book was the other two books word for word. I know sometimes the Author wants anyone to catch on to the story if they read only one book. However, this was not well done. She could have achieved this in a prolog like book one and been done with it.

Disappointing

This book offered a disappointing conclusion to the series. I agree with other people who said that the content repeated too much from the first 2. Also, I did not enjoy hearing about people being tortured. The ending was unsatisfying.

Outstanding

I am a fan of Tamara Leigh, you cannot stop listening. Beautiful love story, real mystery and good historical atmosphere. I understand the need to repeat parts of the two previous books - the idea I think is to help those who did not read the first two books. Great work and worth the credit.

Exceptional ending

Exceptional ending to an exceptional story.

I did have o read/audio the trilogy at least twice before I captured all the well developed characters and their stories.

Over Half Repeated the First Book in the Series

The plot from the first two books in the series continues, this time focusing more on Griffin de Arell and Quinton Boursier. Their initial meeting in the book proves contentious as Quinton goes to free her brother she thinks Griffin holds prisoner. But when she realizes her error, she has to admit the attraction they both feel. Can two sworn enemies find something more than they’d ever imagined against all the intrigue and deception?

I really disliked that over half this novel recounted parts of what happened in the first two books in the series, and any extra either didn’t add anything or couldn’t logically have been left out of the others. So this, the third and last book in the series, backs up to begin before the first two. Therefore, it ends up being much too long and drawn-out. And, although I loved Griffin, Quinton was shrewish, prickly, conniving, and extremely selfish at the start. She gave to others only when it seemed to serve her purposes, although she was loyal to her mother and brother. I was very disappointed, because I’m used to Tamara Leigh’s medieval novels being better written than this. It did get better once it got beyond the part that had already happened in the other books. Then it became very good. The first twenty-some chapters should have been reduced to a prologue and the actual novel started with the new material. I gave it 3.5, which rounded up to a four. #MiddleAges #Misunderstandings #MedievalTimes #FamilyIntrigue #HappyEnding

Awesome narration!

This reader is terrific! The way she switches voices and characters.. Specifically near the end where Sir Francis and Sir Otto are in the chapel with everyone else around them. It’s amazing!

The cherry on top

I was so excited to read this book! The previous two had just build up the suspence, I couldn't wait to see what is actually going on! who is behind all this?! A very good ending to the series
