Faye Rivellaux made a promise to her dying friend, Elayne, to take care of her child after she was gone. The promise had been easy to make. Faye loved Elayne's daughter, Angeline, almost as if she had birthed the child herself. Protecting the child proves much harder, especially after the girl is kidnapped. Willing to do almost anything to get the child back, even giving up a King's ransom in the form of an ancient golden goblet, she meets with the stranger who has demanded payment.
Sir Brant Meslarches isn't comfortable with his mission - but he has his oath to uphold, and so he must go along with it. He has no idea why he needs to meet with the woman by the lake and demand a ransom, but when she shows him the golden goblet, he is fascinated. The golden goblet could have come from only one source: the legendary King Arthur's hidden treasure. Knowing that the lady, Faye, is his only hope of finding the treasure, Brant strikes a tentative bargain with the beautiful woman.
Willing to do anything to save Angeline, Faye agrees to the knight's proposal. She really has no other choice if she is to find the child and uphold her promise. But their bargain holds more danger than either of them could imagine, and the price to save the child might prove more costly than even the richest of king's treasures.
MY LADY'S TREASURE was a thoroughly splendid read: engrossing, rich in detail and wonderfully witty! Author Catherine Kean writes with a beautiful, lyrical style that is a rare find in today's modern carbon-copy literature. Kean has brought back the beauty of the written word!
Filled with lively characters, a strong, suspenseful plot and a myriad of romantic scenes MY LADY'S TREASURE is a powerful, poignant tale that will keep reader's turning pages until the very end. I highly recommend that readers who love a good historical romance pick up a copy of MY LADY'S TREASURE today.
