Publisher's Summary

Passion ignites and the sparks fly when a border lord and a noblewoman skilled at the forge are brought together under unusual circumstances. Lady Winter has always been curious since childhood and even though she is a noblewoman, she has learned from the best blacksmith to be skilled at the forge. While at her sister's wedding in Ravenscar, she decides to stay and help the blacksmith who trained her. His eyesight is failing and although he was once the best blacksmith in all England, now he is doomed without Winter's help. 

The late lord Ravenscar made a deal with Sir Martin de Grey of Northumberland. The blacksmith is to forge a sword from the finest Damascus steel. But to insure that Lord de Grey collects on his deal, he's taken the blacksmith's son in exchange.Sir Martin de Grey arrives in Ravenscar to collect his sword. He needs it to go up against his enemy - Clan Dunbar in an age-old feud. Martin's brother is imprisoned and he will do anything to save him. 

But when he discovers his sword is not ready and the man he made the deal with is dead, he takes drastic measures. He brings the blacksmith and his daughter to Castle Heaton to finish forging the sword. While there, he finds himself immensely attracted to the beautiful commoner's daughter. Winter finds herself in a predicament. Sir Martin de Grey has mistaken her for the blacksmith's daughter since she was working in the forge. 

Now, to tell him the truth would risk her friend never seeing his son again. Sparks will fly when the truth is revealed and circumstances turn lovers against each other. But with passion hotter than the fires of the forge between Winter and Martin, can something that started as lust turn into an undying love between them?

Awesome story!

I loved all of the books in this series, but Winter's Flame is probably my favorite.
Lady Winter, or Winny is a noblewoman despite her love of the forge and creating things out of metal.
When her aging, almost blind mentor is commissioned to make a sword for Lord de Grey, Winter decides to help him. This decision sets her on a course of deception, passion and maybe even true love.
I highly recommend this book (as well as all of Elizabeth Rose's books)!
The narrator was great and made the story come alive.

a good story to end this captivating series.

I enjoyed reading/listening this engaging story that is well known with charismatic characters. though I feel the ending was rushed and didn't like how they romped right away, it seemed to take away form their chemistry a bit and for a guy that romped a lot how does this one make him fall in love? that part was wierd and didn't flow well. Their story has a swee HEA.

Unique

Winter, Secrets of the Heart Series Book 4 and last. I love Elizabeth Rose. You sure did give me a surprise for this one. Lady Winter is definitely a unique twist from all the rest of er sisters. Lady Winter, a unique Noble Woman who was the best trained Blacksmith in town by a blinding man name Wallece. Wallece who took in Lady Winter when she was young to be trained as the best.
Martin was very fierce and angry in the begining of the story because of his's brother's capture. He knew he needed Lady Winter for his brother's release. DeceptioN, secrets and same day meet steamy scenes. LOVED it. The best part I love about this author is how she adds humor the her stories and especially her squire's and I love Nairne

Key to his heart

Winter is not your average Noble, she loves to work in a forge. Here she meets an angry Lord waiting for the Smithy to make him a special sword. Unfortunately the smithy is losing his eyesight so Winter poses as his daughter to help create the sword without the Lord knowing. What happens when the Lord falls for the woman he thinks is a commoner and takes her to his bed, only to discover she is a Lady and sister to the Bastard Triplets of the King. There’s the ex betrothed who claims to have his child and a feud with a Scottish Clan. Never a dull moment.

End of the series

Elizabeth Rose is an excellent Author- I really enjoyed her Seasons of Fortitude series. This is the final one in that series, and unfortunately, my least favorite. As always, use headphones for the bedroom scenes if children are present 😉

Winter Meets Her Match

I’ve enjoyed this series, although I didn’t read any of Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series which the author suggests. I didn’t find the series lacking because I hadn’t. Each sister is very different and with great entertainment I followed their difficulties in life while finding their true loves.

Winter is very stubborn and high-spirited. She is also very protective of people she loves, as we discover when she does something unthinkable for a noble lady—works in the forge to help the blacksmith. She also discovers she has a passionate streak when she meets Sir Martin de Grey.

The story is quite comical, even though the stakes are high. As Winter is helping the blacksmith who no longer has good enough eyesight to do his work, Sir Martin de Grey comes to the forge demanding his sword. Of course, the sword hadn’t been worked on because Sir Martin had taken his son as a hostage, who most recently did the blacksmith’s work.

Now Sir Martin enjoys women, pure and simple — but never touches a virgin. He sees Winter, thinking her the blacksmith’s daughter, and is immediately interested in the wench. Lady Winter has to pretend to be the daughter and eventually they must both go to Sir Martin’s own forge to work on the sword.

I liked Lady Winter’s curious manner and her desire to learn more about what happens between a man and woman. Her demeanor has Sir Martin thinking she has done this before–which she hasn’t! Her curiosity could just kill the cat! Her no-nonsense approach to life, even at nineteen gives her a maturity other girls don’t have at her age.

When Sir Martin de Grey approaches her, taking her to his chamber, she goes. That chamber has painted scenes on the ceiling which should make any maiden swoon. Not Lady Winter. Like I said it’s all very comical and you will get some laughs from it. Sir Martin almost forgets why he needs the sword to be forged and doesn’t learn of Lady Winter’s true identity until he has done the deed. All this just complicates the situation further.

Another character I find humorous is the nanny. In fact, the narrator does the personification of this woman to perfection. Nanny is a seer, but doesn’t see all. Just glimpses. She’s been Lady Winter’s nurse since she was a bairn and follows her to Sir Martin’s castle. She tries to talk reason into Lady Winter, but Winter is just too curious!

On the whole, his narration was good. It’s pacing and tone was one of levity. It is with some regret I felt the narrator portrayed little emotion from Lady Winter as she is in Sir Martin’s bed or close to. The tone of the dialogue rang false, feeling too dry and methodical, rather than playful.

Bottom Line: 5 for story , 4 for performance

Only gets better

Seasons of Fortitude Series has just gotten better! Winter's story is another wonderful story about the sisters of the Kings bastards series.

Winter likes the forge and when she gets the chance to work with Damascus steel, nothing is going to keep her from working with it. Not even Martin de Grey.

Don't miss this one!

Unexpected love

Such a wonderfully written story with unexpected twists to keep you engaged. Throw in some enemies, warring English and Scottish Lords for an exciting story.

Loved it

Yet another brilliant story. This is the last book of this series. Nairnie is so funny. I love her. She and Martin's father really made me laugh. She was funny in all of them but I think she made me laugh the most in this story. She has been in every book of Seasons of Fortitude, besides Pirate in the Mist. And also Tristan's story. Loved every minute of this series. The narrator was very good. This book and all the series are definitely worth the credits.

Winter’s Flame

This is book 4 of the Seasons of Fortitude series. It was narrated beautifully and finished the series with all the daughters happy and married. This book is about Winter, and she is the last daughter in the series. She likes making weapons and finds herself helping a blacksmith make weapons for the clans. She is an excellent designer and makes beautiful items, intricate and personalised so monied Lords and people of similar circumstances want her work. This book is very enjoyable and I loved it. It finished off the tale beautifully. Thank you Miss Rose for writing this book.
