Book Description

When Gisela Anne Balewyne comes face to face with handsome knight Dominic de Terre, she fears her dangerous secrets have caught up with her. The small town of Clovebury seemed the perfect place to hide from her abusive husband, raise her young son, and earn a living as a tailor while she saved to move north and start a new life. Seeing Dominic--the lord she loved and then lost when he went on crusade--renews her desire for him, but she can never be with him again, and not just because she's a commoner and he's a nobleman. Loving him would mean risking too much, including his life.

Dominic is on a crucial mission for Lord Geoffrey de Lanceau: to find out who stole de Lanceau's cloth shipment, worth a fortune. Dominic is stunned to see Gisela, the only woman he's ever loved. She's changed, though, from the passionate, sensual woman he knew. He vows not only to succeed in his mission, but to win her heart forever--goals that endanger them all, especially when Dominic learns she's being paid to sew clothes from some of the stolen silks. As he unravels her shocking secrets and learns the truth about her little boy, he could lose all that's dear to him--or win a knight's greatest reward.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Severely beaten and almost killed by her violent husband Ryle, Gisela Anne Balewyne and her son Ewan fled home finding sanctuary in the small town of Clovebury. Gisela knows should Ryle find her he will kill both her and Ewan. Therefore Gisela leads a reclusive life as a tailor constantly looking over her shoulder. Anticipating the money she can earn from one more commission to complete, Gisela will soon be able to move further away. All was going according to plan until Dominic de Terre, her first and only love, returned from the Crusades with the intent of finding a stolen cloth shipment belonging to his friend de Lanceau.

Dominic had regretted leaving Gisela behind when he'd gone to war, but now that he found her he wasn't about to let her go again. Unfortunately, not only was Gisele unknowingly hiding some of the cloth he sought, but he discovered that Ewan was his illegitimate son. While Dominic is reeling from Gisela's betrayal, he is captured by the desperate thieves. With only one way to save Dominic, Gisela must go to de Lanceau, confess to her crimes and hope she is not too late to save Dominic's life.

*** Ms. Kean has once again penned another richly textured, jewel of a medieval romance bringing a masterful, emotionally riveting story peopled with beautifully drawn characters to life. Her imagery was is fantastic and the reader can't help but feel a part of the marvelous tableau Kean drew.

One of the images that clearly came across was the painful scar Gisela bore from the knife wound to her breast her husband Ryle had inflicted when he attempted to cut her heart out, or worse, kill her son Ewan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! June 23, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Set in Moydenshire, England, the year of 1194. It is the land of Geoffrey de Lanceau. A rich French merchant, Varden Crenardieu, encourages his thugs to undermine the local traders so he can take more and more control of Clovebury, a town on the edge of Moydenshire. Crenardieu had stolen de Lanceau's load of costly silks as they were being shipped down river to Branton Keep.

When Gisela Anne Balewyne finally has enough abuse (physical, mental, and verbal) from her husband Ryle, she flees with her small son, Ewan. They are hiding in the town of Clovebury. Gisela works as a tailor, trying to earn enough money to finally leave the area and be free from her dangerous and insidious husband. When Crenardieu gives her a commission, Gisela has no idea the silk is stolen. Once she suspects, Gisela does not report it to the authorities because she needs the money from the commission too much. But then Dominic de Terre spies her in the market place.

Dominic is a knight in the service of Lord Geoffrey, sent to investigate the recent cloth thefts. He is amazed to find Gisela in Clovebury. Then he is horrified to learn that her husband had changed her from his laughing, vibrant love into a frightened, suspicious woman. Gisela and Dominic were lovers until he had gone away on crusade. Though the two still care for each other, Gisela fears any help due to what Ryle would do should he locate her and Ewan. As for Dominic, he discovers that not only has Gisela lied to him about the stolen silks, but also did not tell him that Ewan was his illegitimate son. Having betrayed him twice, Gisela expects Dominic to arrest her and take Ewan away. Before anything can happen though, Crenardieu's thugs get their hands on Dominic. Gisela must go to de Lanceau for help, even though doing so would condemn her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly Rewarding Medieval! June 26, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Catherine Kean continues her Knights Series with a wonderfully enchanting and heartwarming story of love once lost and now found. Years ago, the strong, handsome nobleman, Dominic de Terre, fell in love with an exquisite commoner, Gisela Anne Balewyne. Rather than give in to his family's demands and marry a noblewoman, he chooses to leave his home and the arms of his "Little Daisy," of his life, Gisela, and join up to fight in the Crusades with King Richard. All he thinks about during his time away is being in the meadow of daisies with his Gisela. He returns, feeling that his life has changed and that Gisela is probably married. He joins up to support his friend and strong local lord, Lord de Lanceau. While on an undercover mission to find out who has been stealing Lord de Lanceau's precious shipments of rare silks, he sees his Gisela in the marketplace. But this woman says she is Anne and the little boy with her is her son, Ewan. Dominic's eyes and heart know differently, and he continues to follow and discover that Anne really is his Gisela. He immediately wonders why she is in hiding with her son and working as a tailor. Little does he realize that Gisela has many secrets, but most of all, she has run away from a brutal husband who has scarred her for life and has threatened all that she loves, especially her son. The mystery begins as Gisela is trapped in a situation with a French Merchant Crenardieu and the very silks that Dominic is looking for, as well as another deep secret she must tell Dominic. For a short time, Gisela has her Dominic back, but she knows once she meets Crenardieu's blackmail demands, she must take the money made from the silk garments commissioned for him and run far, far away from her evil husband Ryle and her newfound love for Dominic.
