Book Description

A Bahamas holiday from dying billionaire JT Lance, a man with a dark secret, leads palliative nurse Rhianna McLeod to Jonathan, a man with his own troubled past, and Rhianna finds herself drawn to the handsome recluse, while unbeknownst to her, someone with a horrific plan is hunting her down.

When palliative care nurse Rhianna McLeod is given a gift of a dream holiday to the Bahamas from her dying patient, billionaire JT Lance, she has no idea that her 'holiday' will include being stranded on a private island with Jonathan, an irritating but irresistibly handsome recluse. Or that she'll fall head over heels for the man.

Jonathan isn't happy to discover a drop-dead gorgeous redhead has invaded his island. But his anger soon turns to attraction. After one failed marriage, he has guarded his heart, but Rhianna's sudden appearance makes him yearn to throw caution to the wind.

To live fully in the present, Rhianna must resolve her own murky past, unravel the secret that haunts JT, foil the plans of a sleazy, blackmailing private investigator and help Jonathan find his muse. Only then can Rhianna find the love she's been searching for, and finally become...Lancelot's Lady.

Editorial reviews:

"From the cold rocky shores of Maine to the extravagant mansions of Miami to a lush tropical island in the Bahamas, Cherish D'Angelo takes her heroine through a series of breathtaking romantic adventures that mirror the settings, often in surprisingly ironic ways. A page turner in the best possible sense." ―Gail Bowen, author of the award-winning Joanne Kilbourn series

"Romance, mystery, danger, black-mail, and twists and surprises, this tale contains them all... Despicable intentions threaten every character in this finely crafted tale of sweet tension...Lancelot's Lady is a non-stop adventure combined with the agonizing struggle to not give in to the magnetism between them. Enticing. Fun." ―Midwest Book Review

"Cherish D'Angelo has got that mythical "voice" down to a fine art." ―Jennifer L. Hart, author of River Rats

"Lancelot's Lady is riveting. It holds on and won't let you go! Cherish D'Angelo's descriptive powers are amazing. She summons up scenes like genies from bottles!" ―Susan J. McLeod, author of Soul and Shadow

"Tardif, already a big hit in Canada...a name to reckon with south of the border." ―BOOKLIST

About the Author

When romance author Cherish D'Angelo is not busy relaxing in her hot tub, sipping champagne, eating chocolate-covered strawberries or plotting romantic suspense with scintillating sensuality, she is ruthlessly killing people off in her thrillers as bestselling Canadian suspense author, Cheryl Kaye Tardif. 

Cherish's debut romance, Lancelot's Lady placed in the semi-finals of Dorchester Publishing's "Next Best Celler" contest and went on to win an Editor's Choice Award from Textnovel. Currently living in Edmonton, Alberta, she enjoys long walks on the beach, except there aren't any around so she has to make do with trips around the hot tub or a vacation to a tropical paradise. And margaritas. 

Cheryl Kaye Tardif is an award-winning, bestselling Canadian suspense author. Her novels include Submerged, Divine Justice, Children of the Fog, The River, Divine Intervention, and Whale Song, which New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice calls "a compelling story of love and family and the mysteries of the human heart...a beautiful, haunting novel." 

Cheryl also enjoys writing short stories inspired mainly by her author idol Stephen King, and this has resulted in Skeletons in the Closet & Other Creepy Stories (collection of shorts) and Remote Control (novelette ebook). 

Booklist raves, "Tardif, already a big hit in Canada...a name to reckon with south of the border."

5.0 out of 5 stars A great romantic suspense September 28, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
As part of the CHERISH THE ROMANCE virtual book tour, Cherish D'Angelo (the pen name of Cheryl Kaye Tardif) granted me a copy of Lancelot's Lady to read and write a review. I'm glad she did, because I loved LANCELOT'S LADY.

Rhianna McLeod is a faithful nurse to her father-like patient J.T. Lance. As a gift for her birthday, J.T. sends Rhianna to the Bahamas for a much needed vacation. Reluctant to leave the dying billionaire, Rhianna follows his wishes and instead of staying at a lush resort he promised, she finds herself on a remote island at a house which hasn't had company in years.

It is there Rhianna meets Jonathan, the reclusive owner of the island and literally the man of her dreams. Complete with a bad attitude, Jonathan's life remains shrouded in mystery until their first kiss begins several revelations, but also rehashes Rhianna's tarnished childhood. On top of that, she still does not understand why J.T. sent her to the island without the owner's prior knowledge.

In this romantic suspense, the romance is not present in the beginning, but Cherish D'Angelo leads with suspense - Tardif's specialty - to carry the reader through. The first chapters of Lancelot's Lady are important background scenes full of suspense to develop the story. Clues are inserted throughout the novel, revealing several previously unknown connections between the characters.

Lancelot's Lady follows the story structure of a good romance, making the story seem predictable, but the ending came as a complete surprise to me and left me crying but satisfied.

On top of the romantic and suspenseful plot, this story also contains a dreamy private island setting and a well-rounded secondary cast of characters, including one bent on destroying J.T. and abducting Rhianna to use as he pleases, making Lancelot's Lady a great romantic suspense.

4.0 out of 5 stars A gothic beach read October 1, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Rhianna McLeod is a palliative nurse who's traveled from Maine to Florida on the promise of a job with JT Lance, a wealthy man who's suffering from an aggressive form of brain cancer. When she arrives, the butler's indefinite about the promises his employer made in the letter that got her there. They have already filled the position. However, when Rhianna sees JT Lance, he calls her "Anna."

The Lance mansion feels like home to an abused orphaned child who's never known a real home before. One odd thing is a painting with no artist's signature entitled Lady in the Mist. This painting resembles Rhianna to a T.

Rhianna quickly becomes like a daughter to the elderly JT. She's shocked when he offers her a six-week vacation to Angelina's Isle, a resort island just northeast of Nassau in the Bahamas. She's understandably reluctant to go, considering JT's condition, but he insists advising her that he'll be there when she returns. She leaves, vowing to have the best time she can, knowing when she returns that JT will be closer to death.

The island resort is definitely not what it's billed to be by her employer. The sign on the dock says `No Trespassing' and while the host looks like the man Rhianna's dreamt about, Jonathan is anything but welcoming. Worse, the place truly is remote. In order for Rhianna to get there, the boat carrying her had to leave off the parts to fix the island's only radio which was their connection to the outside world.

So, is the place a tropical paradise or a trap?

But, then there's Misty. Jonathan's hearing impaired child, a beautiful little girl who needs someone to love her since her mother's abandoned her when she realized she hadn't had a perfect baby. The girl immediately takes to Rhianna.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good plot but too much wrong! April 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you don't know the facts behind some of the major premises of the book, Lancelot's Lady, then I can see why it received only four and five star review because it did have a good plot, authentic dialogue, interesting characters, and realistic imagery. However, I do know a great deal about rape victims as well as how difficult it is to learn ASL (American Sign Language) and neither one is portrayed accurately in the book.

Rape victims require a great deal of effort and time to work through the issues of trust and sexual arousal. Those issues would certainly not have been worked through just by making the decision to do so and just deliberately pushing one's memories aside nor could healing be achieved with one or two sexual experiences.

As for ASL, it is as difficult to learn as any other foreign language. It is not just a matter of learning vocabulary (individual signs); one needs to learn an entirely new grammar and correct "pronunciation" in order to communicate fluently. This knowledge takes time and a great deal of practice to accomplish; it could not be done in four weeks, especially if words are spoken at the same time. The same is true for lip reading; it is a skill that needs to be taught and practiced so a child like Misty could not have just picked it up on her own.

After a horrible experience of being almost forcibly drowned, I can't imagine that all it would take for Rhianna to enjoy swimming --
particularly underwater -- would be swimming lessons at the YMCA. Yet that is what occurred in the book.

While the book was spoiled for me, if you are not bothered by the lack of realism, then you would probably enjoy this book.

Dear reader:

I'm an international bestselling Canadian author who loves to say, "I kill people off for a living!" You can imagine the looks I get from people. Sometimes I'll tell them, "Fictitiously, of course. I'm an author." Sometimes I won't say anything; I'll let them wonder...

Booklist calls me "a big hit in Canada...a name to reckon with south of the border."

Born in Vancouver, BC, I was a "military brat" and a "military wife" who has lived all across Canada and in Bermuda. I now reside in Edmonton, AB, with my husband Marc and our Pomeranian Princess, Chai.
