Publisher's Summary

Lord Corbett Blake is determined to bring honor back to his family name. King Edward III has told him he needs to marry or lose his lands and title. Now he searches for the perfect lady.

Devon has been raised in secret in the monastery, put there by the sorcerer Orrick, 18 years ago before he disappeared. Now the black-hearted Lord of Steepleton has discovered her and is taking her to the castle as his servant.

Deception and secrets are many within the walls of Blake Castle, but they can't hold a candle to the passion that stirs between Corbett and his servant Devon - a woman who can destroy everything he is, with the power of just one kiss.

Melting heart

I love this story of a hardened knight who doesn’t think he is worthy or should love due to a tragedy in his family’s past. He wants to right a wrong or sees as a wrong. I love this feisty heroine who through true grit makes the hero find what he didn’t think he needed. The narrator kept me entertained and engaged. This story had many twists and turns, hoping that a HEA would happen. I highly recommend this story. Received a credit for an honest review.

Great story!

As I listened, I realized that I have read this book before. I love Devon and her story. Corbit was a bit of a jerk, but then I guess all men were back then. I've not been reading many historical romances lately so it took a little time to get back in the feel of it. The characters and setting were great. There was some mystery and suspense. The narrator did a good job. I've been listening to some great narrators so that also took a little getting used to. Overall, I'm glad I listened to it.

My thoughts

A good story by Elizabeth Rose, but here is my full disclosure: she wrote the characters well- Lord Corbett needed a good smack upside his dense head, the Baroness was insufferable, the Baron a doll, Malcolm- I hated at first, but grew to like, and Devon... Devon I did not like. I yelled at her, I wanted to throttle her or even smack her at times! But the hero loves whom he loves. I also need to admit I wasn't overly fond of the narrator- he did well in the general reading of the story & a couple of the characters, but the rest, meh. As always, use headphones for the bedroom scenes if children are present. 😉

Be careful for what you wish for

Lord Corbett is trying to win back his good family name. The King says he must marry a lady or forfeit his title. This is hard, how can he marry without love and still fulfill his quest. Devon has lived in secret with the monks. A commoner, but with a Lady's aura. She has been brought to the castle as a maid, and fights Corbett every chance she gets. Will their lives cross to fulfill a dynasty? Follow their journey. Great narration and story.

A worth reading story!

Lord Corbett Blake- fostered by the Baron after his parents died, siblings went missing as well as the sorcerer he apprentice for,
Devon- was hidden from birth to a healer at a monastery, then 18 years later the healer and herself was to be servants.

Overall I enjoyed reading/listing to this engaging story that has fanciful and unforgettable characters and a hint (well more than a hint) of magic. I will admit I didn't care for Devon to much she was a bit wishy washy and though she was stubborn and stood her ground to be defiant she couldn't stand up for herself and that didn't make a lot of sense. Plus if one is brought up in a monastery and believes which she seemed to, why was she so easily seduced? That didn't set right with me (my reasonings for a 4 vs 5 star for the story). I did love the plot and the story just wish she had more inner strength. Their story has a loving HEA and intrigues the reader to read book 2 to find out about his siblings and what Orik meant.
Narrated by Kevin E Green wh did a fantastic job of retelling the story with character likeness and made the story come alive.

brilliant story

Loved it. I couldn't stop listening wanting to know what was going to happen next. Will definitely be listening to the rest of the series and to more of Elizabeth Roses books. The narrator, Kevin Green was very good. He made the story even better with his different voices for every character. Will definitely listen to more books narrated by him. Definitely worth a credit. Now on to the next one.
