de Montfort family.
This story is about Ancel de Montfort who is an advisor to the young King Richard.
There is also Lady Margery Ormond who lived at Highfield with her cruel stepfather and his sons.
There is a lot happening in this book that it would be best to read it. I would also suggest that reading books 1-5 would be enjoyable also. HAPPY READING
There is much unrest in England in the year 1381, and one of the knights following the orders of King Richard is Sir Ancel de Montfort. He has been given several exceedingly important tasks to complete, and the uprisings taking place around London plus the demands of the peasants make carrying out his responsibilities very dangerous. Another person entangled in the turmoil is Lady Margery Ormond, whose home, Highfield, is attacked by those who despise anyone who belongs to the nobility.
When Margery becomes caught up in a skirmish between those fighting for the king and the serfs, it is Ancel who manages to keep her from being killed. With no one around to oversee Highfield, the king suggests that his trusted knight might become its new baron and a marriage can even be a part of the bargain. Just when the futures of Ancel and Margery start to look bright, one unanticipated event could take away their happiness.
Since I have read the previous books in the Knights of Honor series, I have watched Ancel grow from a lively young boy to a well-respected knight. He definitely possesses all the qualities that would make a man admirable, and I thought how lucky Margery was to have had been saved by him, as it let them become acquainted. Though she lived an unhappy life for many years, it did not break her spirit. I cheered her on when she needed to be strong, and felt her pain when a situation was distressing. Alexa Aston has a way of depicting her characters which lets me know exactly how these individuals feel at a certain moment, and I was deeply affected as the relationship of Ancel and Margery went through numerous stages plus lots of heartfelt emotions.
The discontent of some people who did much of the physical labor during this time in history and the resulting conflict it caused is shown with realistic incidents. Inner thoughts and motivations of those involved in any encounter are clearly revealed, thus letting me get a sense for what fueled a person’s actions. Several of the scenes where the king is featured were especially enjoyable because his personality was so animated, while interesting secondary characters made an occasion more intriguing. I am looking forward to more releases in this captivating series.
I voluntarily reviewed the book, and all comments are my honest opinion
Sir Ancel de Montfort is doing his duty for King and country and comes across a woman on the battlefield who he rescues. She is a beautiful woman who peaks his curiosity. He takes her to his King. The King takes Ancel's suggestion to return Lady Margery to Highfield. But he adds if her step-brother does not return, the estate will then go to Ancel and she will become his bride. So Ancel now has the opportunity of lands and titles at an earlier time in his life. He knows it is a great opportunity. He would love to have the type of marriage that the majority of his family has been able to find, love matches.
Their relationship develops nice and slow. I have to say there are very emotional moments in the story and for me, some of the most touching are with Ancel and his own private thoughts. I loved the hero more than the heroine. I could definitely tell that his parents had instilled their own greatness in their son.
