Told from dual third person perspectives (Geoffrey and Marsaili) THE SAINT is an historical romance that follows Marsaili de Ville, widowed wife of Andrew de Ville- a woman on the run from her former brother in law who wants his brother’s widow for himself. Enter Lord Geoffrey de Wylde aka The Saint, who takes a reluctant Marasili under his protection as they continue their journey towards his new home. What ensues is a cross country trek through snowbound England while trying to stay one step ahead of Edmund de Ville.
The relationship between Geoffrey and Marsaili is slow to develop. Geoffrey struggles with the on-going pain and damage from an injury sustained in battle; and Marsaili is a woman whose need to return to Scotland outweighs any thoughts of starting a new relationship. The sexual intimacy is limited.
THE SAINT is a quick read: a novella length historical romance focusing on two people whose lives will collide on a stormy, winter’s night. The premise is entertaining; the characters are engaging; the romance is light and tender. Cathy MacRae writes a sweet and graceful story line that will capture your attention.
This is the first time that Cathy has come over the border in her stories and I must say she has done good.
Marsaili is running away from her brother-in-law who wants her for his own and because she wants nothing to do with him, has accused her of murdering her husband, his brother.
Geoffrey, is on his way home having given up his intent to become a monk after his years of service in battles, to take up his role as Lord De Wylde upon the deaths of his brothers. Known as The Saint for his chivalric actions, when he comes across a damsel on her own, straightaway he offers her his protection, whether she wants it or not.
I loved, loved, loved this story from the very first page and I think you'll love it too.
