There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
This was different, more on dialogue than fight scenes. We do have villains, and most from the Catholic Church so be warned.
I still enjoyed this story, but not a fan of all dialogue. Granted there is suspense and the way this author writes, you always feel you are part of the story as it unfolds.
One reviewer rated it low because she wanted romance and steam. This author does not write steamy lovemaking vulgar scenes, she has just the right amount of description that you feel their passion. In this story, our h has a relationship with a Knight, once and it is very mildly described, outside of marriage. There is also one very mild lovemaking scene, within marriage and again very mild.
I relished the ending and how this author pulled everything together and we got a glimpsed of their life a few years ahead that was sweet.
We get HEA, there is a slow sweet build on romance and only a little, this is not a romance story. We have no cheating and no cliffhanger for our couple. We are left wondering about the lives of some of the other character's that will be resolved in the next story of this series.
The blurb tells this story better than I so I am not even going to attempt it, just what you may get out of reading it. (ljb)
Not one to care much for the misfortune of others, Maxton is oddly struck by Andressa’s plight and takes it upon himself to feed her and assist her. It is through his actions the two are entertwined in a series of events and intrigue that could change the history of England.
It is the balance of good and evil, one often disguised as another, as well as the possibility of redemption that compels both on their paths. That conflict and the growing attraction the two, a dark knight and waifish pledge, cannot deny, cause each to make choices that surprise even themselves. Is it fate that put them together or the hand of God?
Absolutely fabulous story! This is one I couldn’t put down from start to finish. It has an addictive plot that draws one in, with wonderful characters, rich descriptions, and moments of humor and romance to top it all off. This is the first in a group of stories of the “executioner knights”, and I am already anticipating the next.
I highly recommend it!
Sir Maxon of Loxbeare is an executioner knight who has been released from captivity and is now going to repay a debt for his release. He literally was run into by a poor urchin, but when he looks closer, he clearly realizes it is a woman who is a postulate from the local Abbey. She intrigues him because of her circumstances at present. As Max finds out there is so much more to her situation that has been truly unfair to the young lady in question. He is on a mission currently, but this postulate is now to become one of his personal missions as well.
Lady Andressa de Bose has had family tragedy dictate her fate and current circumstance because now she has only endured severe personal hardship for quite some time. Living in an Abbey where currently some there are starving, some are cruelly abused and some simply disappear. She has been doing everything she can to survive. She finds herself in a circumstance in the middle of a village where she runs into a huge man who is intimidating. Hopefully, he can understand her explanation if not... she is doomed.
I can highly recommend this story. As I mentioned before, this tale is somewhat dark, but it makes for a different, intriguing and wonderful romance while introducing us to a new trio of executioner knights. Now, I look forward to the next stories in this series of the Unholy Trinity. This author never disappoints. She continues to create magnificent stories with intriguing plots that entertain me, the reader, and fulfills my time with enjoyment. Now to read Sean de Lara's story, Lord of Shadows. Definitely, a must read after this.

Sir Maxton is a huge, dark, broody and handsome seasoned killer, who we first meet in The Lord of Winter. He is the leader of the Unholy Trinity, but has lost his way after being recently imprisoned. Lady Andressa du Bose is a half starved, beautiful, brave and intelligent heiress, who has been robbed of her inheritance. Together, they can be each others salvation, together they can foil this deadly plot.
From the moment this book starts, it has twists and turns in it, and as usual, Kathryn Le Veque explains clearly the history and politics surrounding this story, so that it becomes an integral part of this emotionally charged love story. There are lots of wonderful characters, Sir Achilles de Dere, Sir Kress de Rhydian, Sir Gart Forbes, the de Lara brothers, Bric MacRohan, Dashiel Du Reims and the camaraderie that they have for each other, adds another dimension to this wonderful romantic tale.
This is a book of personal awakening and realization, that one can have something different and that life isn't just about service to one's king and country.
I absolutely loved this book and certainly Lady Andressa makes for a wonderful heroine, and Sir Maxton does not disappoint as the gentle, but deadly knight. I am looking forward to reading more about the three who make up The Unholy Trinity.
I would also like to commend you on the way you look after your readers .... Your books are a good length, very well written and above all you keep the price extremely affordable. Something that sadly, a number of your fellow authors fail to do. KLV I salute you !!
