Publisher's Summary

They were both outcasts by a harsh decree - and on the brink of a shared destiny of passion!

With her father murdered and her home burned, lovely Alyx Blackelt fled to the woods - and sanctuary in the camp of Raine Montgomery, a nobleman outlawed by the king's edict. There she hid her beauty in the guise of a boy and her sorrow in her work as Montgomery's squire.

But how long could such loveliness as hers be hidden? How long could such a gallant man's desires be blind? Even as a blood feud raged between the Montgomerys and the Chatworths, as angry swords clattered in the name of family honor, one woman's love would make all the difference.... One woman's love would inflame a hero's passion, touch a king's pity, and raise a song of praise in every English heart.

Yes Yes Yes

What can I say except that you are a fool if you don't read this book. Amazing storyline, characters to fall in love with and passionate scenes to heat your blood to a boil. Read it all in one day. Couldn't resist.

Want more Classic Deveraux Please

Used to read all the Montgomery/Taggart stories. Recall hitting the book stores every six months looking for latest and newest. Have only found a few of the original Romance series on Audible. Would love, love, love to see more. and she wrote so many. Deveraux manages to capture archetypal men, and great heroines and follows the lineage through history from the middle ages to the nineteen eighties. I would love to see more of the classics. with new narrators.
