Edouard and Juliana
on May 23, 2017
Edouard de Lanceau is the son of Lord Geoffrey de Lanceau. Juliana de Greyne is the daughter of Lord de Greyne. Edouard and Juliana meet the first time at her father's keep, where Edouard saves Juliana from a fall in a well. When he reveals a bet to kiss her, she doesn't believe a word Edouard says after the confession.
Several years later finds Juliana is a lady-in-waiting to her best friend, Mayda. She has given birth to a daughter and fears for them both. Mayda makes Juliana promise to protect her daughter, Rosemary, if something should befall her. Something does happen to Mayda and Juliana finds herself threatened by Geoffrey's old villain Veronique and her son, Tye.
When Edouard de Lanceau is on his way to Mayda and Landon's keep, he discovers Juliana de Greyne body floating on the banks of a river. Finding her still alive, he takes her to Landon's keep, where they are captured by Veronique and Tye. Now that Veronique has Edouard, she sets her trap for Lord Geoffrey de Lanceau. Can Edouard and Juliana escape to warn his father? Is Rosemary alive and safe, or dead as is feared? Will Juliana and Edouard have a chance to love each other, or will Veronique succeed in killing them both?
The characters are real and well drawn. The plot is familiar but with twists and turns to keep the reader interested. There is no cliffhanger in this story. I thoroughly enjoyed this medieval novel. I look forward to other books by Catherine Kean.
