Publisher's Summary

At a young age, Summer has sacrificed herself for the sake of her family by marrying the evil and abusive Baron Mowbray of Suffolk. A few years after birthing him a son, the baron mysteriously dies, leaving her toddler heir to his estate. The king grants Summer one month to find and marry a man of her choice. But Summer would never consider marrying any relative of her late husband, especially not his domineering nephew.

Sir Warren Mowbray returns from battle to find his uncle has died and with him went the man's promise that Warren would inherit his holdings. Now, to add insult to injury, the king has assigned him as the widow's guardian and advisor while she chooses a husband. Once he arrives at the castle, he discovers Summer is a beautiful, smart, determined woman but with a mind of her own. He plans to woo her, but she wants nothing to do with him. He also has his suspicions that the hated baron might have been murdered - and Summer is the main suspect.

Can a strong, determined woman and a controlling warrior find love between them or will they destroy each other first?

Watch for Autumn's Touch (Book Three), and Winter's Flame (Book Four) coming soon! And if you haven't already heard it, be sure to listen to Highland Spring (Book One) as well!

Best one yet!

I have read the Mad Men, the Bastards, and now the Seasons while listening at work. I am glad I was home listening to this one. It has all the romance of the others but I laughed so much I am sure I would have disrupted my co-workers.

Wonderful Story!

Lady Summer was married to the cruel Baron Mowbray. She married him at age fourteen to keep her family safe from him. Her father was Ross Douglas, a Scott. Sir Warren Mowbray was the Captain of King Edward's army. He had left France as soon as he heard of the Queen's death. He literally ran into Summer and fate was in the making. Warren was Summer's late husband's nephew. They started butting heads right away. A well written story and Brian brought it to life and made you think you were right there with them.

Another season and it will be hot. Summer is a wonderful addition to the seasons of fortitude series. A touch of mystery, betrayal, and love combined into a good story. Brian J Gill is a wonderful narrator.

A New Life

Following the death of her cruel husband, Baron Mowbray, Summer wants very much to choose her next husband. King Edward agrees, if she can do it in a month. He also sends the baron’s nephew, Sir Warren Mowbray, to protect and advise her. The battle of wills that results from this partnership is frustrating for our hero and heroine, and quite entertaining for the reader. In addition to an extremely stubborn hero and heroine, this story contains a conniving aunt, a murder mystery, and a tent city of perspective suitors, a handmaid with a problem, a squire with a rather dry sense of humor, the Ross parents and sisters, and the Legendary Bastards. This story began with a tragic event, but moves quickly to become a tale of life renewed. It definitely holds the reader’s attention from beginning to end. There’s a little bit of everything: intrigue, mystery, murder, new beginnings and romance. Another great story written by Elizabeth Rose and brought to life by Brian J. Gill.

Summer’s Reign

This was another fantastic book in the series where this is book two. The narration was excellent. Youngster Summer volunteered to marry The Duke to enable a peace for her Father’s clan. He was years older than Summer and was very ignorant, arrogant and nasty. All he wanted was for Summer to be pregnant and provide him with multiple sons. He was a very cruel Man. The day that Summer’s fourth baby was still born was the day he died himself. Summer was called to London to have a meeting with the King and was told that she had 4 weeks to find herself a new husband, after this if no husband found then the King would choose one for her. He then sent her home with her deceased Husbands nephew who would take care of her and advise her. So the plot went on. I have loved this series and had lots of entertainment listening to it being narrated. Thank You Miss Rose for writing this book. I have enjoyed it immensely.
