Publisher's Summary

1215 A.D. - Dashiell "Dash" du Reims is the eldest son of the Earl of East Anglia and a cousin to the great House of de Lohr. Much like his warring and politically-involved cousins, Dashiell is also waist-deep in the political turmoil that is sweeping England at this time. As the Captain of the Guard for the powerful, and senile, Duke of Savernake, his is in the middle of the baron's rebellion against the king.

Although his de Lohr cousins have been trying to lure him over into serving Christopher de Lohr, the greatest knight in the realm, Dashiell is reluctant for one very good reason, a woman. Specifically, the duke's youngest daughter, the lovely and sweet Belladonna. With the duke's senility, there is an undercurrent movement from within the family to usurp the duke by two of his ambitious sons-in-laws. As a man with only three daughters, the husbands of the older daughters are plotting to steal the duke's power and his seat, and Dashiell is the only thing that stands between them and the mad duke. He is also the only thing that stands between their wicked intentions towards Belladonna. Nothing will get past Dashiell when it comes to Belladonna, not even men who technically outrank him. He'll fight to the death.

Soon enough, the evil husbands are plotting to be rid of Dashiell as well, but not if the powerful de Lohr family has anything to say about it. Enter a world of grand medieval pageantry, passion, battles, and politics in Dashiell and Belladonna's story, where love is the only thing that truly conquers all and family bonds are the strongest of all. It's an all-out knightfest in this glorious medieval epic.

Unbeatable!

Time and time again Kathryn le Veque leaves me breathless. I've read this book twice and now listened to Brian J. Gill spinning his magic to make this story one of my top five favorites. It is a tale of deep love, unflinching loyalty, heroism and the greatest bravery in the face of treachery and war. Unforgettably beautiful. Read it!

A mediaeval tale of the highest order!

A ruthless Lord, using the illness of the senile and dementia driven old Earl, had married the heiress to the ... fortunes. Not content to inherent at the death of the Earl, he proceeded to place the old Earl in situations that could cause his death.
However, the Earl's Captain of the guard, had fought against this evil. As time goes by, the heir apparent starts to throw caution to the wind, lusting after the prestige of the Earldom for himself.
There are other background stories going on, whilst this titanium struggle occurs. So drama abounds, and the reader is kept in a mesmerizing haze of incredulity at every twist and turn this tale takes.

One of her best book ever.

Love love this book. Dash and Belladonna won my heart along with Bent and Lilly. I was so afraid this this book was not going to have a happy ever ever ending. Kathryn le Veque has a way of writing to holds you enthralled until the very end. All the characters in this book had such great depth even the bad guys.

disappointing ....didn’t even finish reading

I have always been a fan of Kathryn Le Veque.
So I’m disappointed that what use to be
story’s of intrigue are now just quick silly
dramas . I remember not being able to
quit her story’s now they are so repetitive
I can’t make myself finish them.
I will say Brian J. Gill is the only reason
I listened as long as I did!
I miss the old Kathryn

incorrect chapter order

The rating would have been much higher but for the fact that Chapter 28 is in fact Chapter 22. As I have read the book more than once I knew a chapter was missing but then found it at the end. I have contacted Audible and they are looking into the problem so hopefully I will be able to revisit my review.
