Publisher's Summary

1471 AD - 10 years after the Battle of Towton, Sir Kenton le Bec, the Lion of the North, serves Warwick the Kingmaker as the man's attack dog. There is no fiercer knight in Warwick's arsenal than Kenton le Bec, a powerful and cunning fighter. Kenton has been tasked with securing Babylon Castle, a fortress that secures a road between Lancashire and Yorkshire. It is a strategic castle and currently in the hands of Edward's forces. When Kenton and his army move in, all of that changes. Yet things are not always clear-cut.

Lady Nicola Aubrey-Thorne is the widow of a great Edwardian supporter. When Kenton conquers her home of Babylon Castle, she offers him nothing but resistance and hatred. Kenton sees a beautiful, spoiled woman who fights him on every turn, yet the spark of attraction is there. As Kenton comes to learn the darker secrets of Babylon, he comes to understand Lady Thorne and her sorrows. And his attraction toward her grows beyond his control.

Join Kenton and Nicola in a world of opposing loyalties yet united attraction. Their lives become irrevocably intertwined even if their loyalties to the men who would be king differ. The passion they feel for one another, and the love, is something few people ever experience. It is a complicated and complex situation, one where difficult decisions must be made if Kenton and Nicola are to remain together.

When Warwick is captured by enemy soldiers, Nicola must do all she can to save the man who she once considered her enemy. Will she be too late?

Amazing!

This was an awesome novel! LeVeque at her finest. I think the narrator did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. I felt totally immersed in their world, could visualize the characters and places as if I were there! One of my best Audible purchases. Highly recommend!

An enchanting journey...

Kenton, Nicola and her children made for a wonderful listen. A well developed love story with great historical elements -- with just enough angst, adventure, friendship and interesting bad guys. Some new characters are introduced and I can't wait to read their already written stories. Narration was stellar!

A love story, of epic portions!

I suppose it is often a wish, that a building could indeed tell us it's stories, of lives that had once lived and loved, within. However, this is also a time when neighbors are against neighbors. When two people cause a civil war, for the fight for the English Crown. This is a time when knights are supreme tools for their overlords, doing the dastardly deeds they are commanded to do. It is a great man, to keep to his own ideals, to his own standards of chivalry, in such times. Yes, a book to make you think and reflect. A very good yarn.

Oh we bit predictable but still very good…

This is one of the better of the series… Character development was better than the previous, storyline was actually more intriguing than the previous, and character development was good as well as the narrator was absolutely excellent… Again I think I'll move onto the next in the series. Whom would I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys like meets with a bit of history and a lot of romance… Good stuff emulates the environment or historical space at the time… in summation, good read, light read, not a five-star book, but still a good book…

Brilliant narration for an amazing medieval story

I adore Kathryn Le Veque's medieval romance stories moreso when coupled with an Audible upgrade/version of the novel. She has this amazing ability to match the perfect narrator for her books. Love all of KLV's Audible books narrated by Sean Patrick Hopkins

I was a bit disappointed in this book

I found the Knights very wishy washy so to speak. Most of Kathryn Le Veque's men are strong and forthright Not so in this book. I almost found him to be weak and foolish.

Another Great Story

KLV never disappoints. I love the strength in her knights. However, Kenton was so strong in the beginning and then he lost some of that strength. So, in this book it seems the men were getting a little soft . I don't know, it gave me pause.
