One rapturous hour sparks unforgettable passion between Lady Nicola and Fawkes de Cressy. The memory of their time together enables Fawkes to survive the horrors and perils of the Crusades and gives Nicola the hope and strength to endure a brutal marriage.
Fawkes returns to rescue the woman of his dreams and finds Nicola enmeshed in a dark web of castle intrigue. Fawkes is so altered by the hardships and cruelties of war, that Nicola fears to trust him with her secrets or her heart.
Surrounded by enemies, the battle-hardened knight and the aloof, wary woman must rebuild the bond between them. Only if they dare let the soul-stirring magic their bodies share grow into love can they escape the sinister plot that threatens to destroy them both.
This is a lengthy and convoluted story.
Lady Nicola is married to a man who wants no part of her or any other woman. Her husband demands that Fawkes shares Nicola's bed in order to impregnate her.
One hour of passion leads to an unimaginable story of intrigue and deception.
Will their short tryst lead to an eventual love?
I gave this tale 4.0 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames. There are many intimate encounters in this tale but not all are detailed or explicit.
I received a complimentary digital ARC copy of this book from the publisher to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
There were great characters but it felt as if the bad guys were simply too bad and the good oneswere too - okay, not too good, they also had dark sides but everything tended to be extreme.
I know, of course, that those times were hard and brutal and that women had no rights but..again...but. The characters are lacking depth and are rather stereotypical: The really bad guy, the honorable good guy, committing bad deeds. things like that.
I would have wished for some communication because half of the problems might have been avoided if anybody, okay, if Lady Nichola had talked to Fawkes de Cressy. Even though I understood her hesitancy to trust him considering her former experiences with men (well, not all of them were bad, right, so ....) to a certain degree, it felt as if the story was just drawn out by it.
Apart from that, I felt as if everybody was always rushing to and fro and hither and thither and going from one place to the next like we do today. Considering that traveling was much harder and took much more time in those times, that felt a bit off.
On the whole it is a nice story that I will probably read again but I had expected more from it.
Fawkes de Cressy has worked hard on the Crusades with King Richard with one purpose in mind. When he is granted his heart's desire, things don't go quite as planned.
Our heroine has been living with secrets and lies for the last few years. Protecting those dear to her is the most important thing. Our hero is a straightforward man, who is angered by all the deception he faces. So many stories, he doesn't know who to believe.
There is danger and intrigue all around. Emotions are running high. A wonderful look into the the life of a very strong medieval woman and those closest to her.
I loved it.
