I have read all of Kathryn's books and let me tell you this one was one of my all time favorites...Kathryn always leaves me crying with her stories and this one was no exception....although it is a very long story, it was well worth every word..I simply could not put it down... AMAZING work Kathryn I am so glad you did not listen when they first told you to downsize it....If you want a truly remarkable story then this book is a MUST!!!

This is the long-awaited story of Gaston de Russe. The author had previously released little snippets of his character and his story, and it does not disappoint.

The story of Gaston in England during that time period is legend. He's 'The Dark Knight - The Dark One.' Men fear him, women want him.

Remington's husband is imprisoned in the Tower, his property confiscated and given to Gaston. When Gaston arrives to his new holding, he meets Remington and her sisters, her husband's young cousin, and her son Dane. Gaston is estranged from his horrible wife; and Remington's abusive husband is imprisoned in the Tower. Sparks fly and they give their hearts to each other. The only person Gaston has ever given his heart to is Remington. The story unfolds where their love for each other grows and grows, and becomes EPIC!

Gaston helps Remington and her whole family heal from the abuse that was heaped upon them from her husband. He LIVES and BREATHES for Remington. She is the most pampered of women who has ALL of her emotional needs met.

This story has it all - battles, killing of men who dare touch Remington, treachery, royal intrigue, etc. etc., but most of all, the tender and touching LOVE Gaston has for Remington - sigh!

What a guy! I just loved this story and was sad to have it end. I'm anticipating the author's followup story about one of their sons that will be released in two years.

I read the book once, read it twice, and will plan on reading it again soon. It's such a KEEPER! And did you see the cover - what a picture!

Thank you Ms. Le Veque for giving us the long-awaited story of Mr. Smoking Hot - Gaston de Russe!

Anything for you........When a man falls in love, nothing is good enough for his love. If he truly is smitten, his heart races whenever he sees her, his emotions swell and he hears his heart pounding in his ears. His breath quickens.... What is this strange sensation and why is it so consuming me? All this and more as Kathryn takes us again on an epic journey of love, hate, tragedy, and heart skipping intrigue. This book should come with a warning. "Warning-could be hazardous to eating, sleeping or ever getting any rest!" Once you embark on this trip you can't stop for anything, it is so exciting! I laughed and cheered, wept shamefully and got mad at the author, then laughed again! Such emotions from a book, you say? Absolutely! No other book I have read has ever evoked such feelings! Am I, as a man a fool? Some would think so and I challenge them! Read this and allow yourself to feel. If you want a history book, go to the library. But if you want to immerse yourself in this world of unbridled passion then let yourself go, dare to walk on the emotion side and see if you don't agree with me. The action is the best I have read so far, and is non-stop. There is something for everyone in this book and the story is an epic! I highly recommend this book (if you haven't figured that out by now) and give it 10 stars! You deserve it.......anything for you!

I still cant believe how long it took to publish this book. I LOVED it. If you are looking for a quick read this isnt for you. If you are looking for a book with well developed chareters and a story that keeps you captivated this is for you. I cried, laughed and cried some more. I think my husband thought i was insane. I urge you to buy this book you wont be disapointed. I hope there are sequels! I cant say enough about this book but im not the most elequent writer which is why im a reader.

I love longer books, and when it's written with such great characters, it makes you really feel you get your money worth.
I looked all around for someone I liked as well as Bertrice Small, even tho they write a little differently, Le Veque filled that empty space and I am now eager to read them all. I praise this author for not cutting this book down, most books just get you interested then it's over.

Since I have worked my way thru Ms Le Veque impressive list of Medieval books this one just thrilled me. Gaston's story is all that he is due. Gaston and Remi have all the odd's against them. Unfaithful wife, abusive husband, war that just ended for the throne of England and there is still rife in the country. They each had a story to tell and author blended them together and found a combination that truly amazing. I laughed out loud at the singing
of sisters in the hall. I cried when death to those close to them. The secondary characters in this novel were thought out and were well executed.
There is a disclaimer that this is a long story. I could have gone on reading it, well-done Ms Le Veque!
