Publisher's Summary

The Wulfriths. It all began with a woman.

A battle. A crown. The conqueror. The conquered. Medieval England - forever changed by the Battle of Hastings. And the rise of the formidable Wulfriths.

A heartless Norman

Chevalier Maël D’Argent lost more than his striking looks when he aided the Duke of Normandy in taking the English throne from King Harold. As much by his own actions at the Battle of Hastings as those of the enemy, he lost his sire and his honor in breaking faith with his family. 

Believing himself unworthy of forgiveness, his ruined face the least due him, Maël now serves a ruthless man bent on subduing Saxons resistant to Norman rule. 

But when his mission to safeguard King William’s dignity leads to the rescue of a curiously familiar Saxon woman who causes the empty place inside him to strain its seams, he discovers he may not be as heartless as the one he serves - nor resistant to the wiles of one he ought to count an enemy.

A false abbess

In the guise of Abbess Mary Sarah, the illegitimate Mercia has served the Saxon resistance for years in anticipation of learning who sired her. At last ordered to cast off the habit and veil, Mercia is told that revelation of her parentage hinges on the acceptance of another role that could see her sacrificed by the noble family who refuses to acknowledge her.

When she resists and is abducted by Saxon allies, her savior proves to be the scarred Norman warrior who spared her following the great battle. Once more, something sorrowfully empty in Sir Maël makes her long to fill his emptiness with what little she possesses, even if his captivity renders it impossible for him to forgive one as deceptive as she.

Even if she never discovers who she is...

From the coronation of William the Conqueror at Westminster, to the amassing of the Danish fleet intent on dethroning England’s Norman king, Sir Maël and Mercia’s tale unfolds in the fourth book in the Age of Conquest series, revealing the origins of the Wulfriths in the best-selling Age of Faith series.

Wonderful

Yet again Tamara Leigh has produced an outstanding book. The narrator consistently provides the life to the characters that carries the story. And now there is promise of another series in the future. I will read the next book then re-read the faith series and this one again as I await its release. Thank you Tamara Leigh and Mary Sarah Agliotta!

Heartless book 4 in the series

I I’ve the way this series builds one story upon another so we are able to see what happens with the other appealing familial characters. Mary Sarah Agliotta is a phenomenal storyteller who makes you ant to jump from one of the audiobooks to the next. Her narrations are distinctive and very appealing. You can’t help but fall in love with each of the damaged characters as they journey towards happiness and forgiveness. Excellent book suitable for all ages as the sexual chemistry is so tastefully done and more implied than explicit. Don’t miss any of these books and audiobooks.

Heartless has a heart.

I have read and listened to Heartless 2. Once when it first came out and again before starting Reckless. Both times it held me under a spell that made putting it down almost impossible. I would recommend the entire series and “The Age of Faith” series. Tamera Leigh’s books are full of intriguing plots, action, and of course how the hero Knight gets the lady in such a way as to keep you guessing.

This book is ANYTHING but heartless! It pulls you in to explore from the first moment. I’ve almost listened straight through.

Well Done Tamara Leigh!

Formidable

Loved the 1-3 books of the series, but this is my favorite so far! Tamara is amazing and her characters have such depth! besides the love story, the book is full of action, mystery and healing of the heart. Loved the Psalm 31 theme! and the Epilogue exerpt prologue! I have listened to Maël's letter 3x, it was memorable, I almost cried. Can't wait for Age of Honour!!!
