Her father has been accused of stealing from the king, an allegation that has reduced her family to poverty. She has one chance to find and marry a man who can help her prove her father's innocence. Lord Therri, heir to a rich barony, has the wealth and connections Mathilde needs to delve into the mysteries of her father's past. Furthermore, Therri embodies all her romantic dreams.
Etienne, the younger son of a disgraced family, has neither wealth nor connections, but is smitten with Mathilde at a glance. She finds the knight intriguing, but believes he is only out to seduce her. While she seeks for a way to win Therri's attention, Etienne tricks her into granting him her favor, an embroidered white ribbon, for a tournament, setting in motion a dangerous chain reaction of events. Can Etienne save Mathilde from a nightmare from her past and prove himself the true hero of her dreams?
DiPastena has done it again! I can't get enough of this series. The rich world of medieval France continues in it's tangled web of loyalties of love. I was sucked in once again and simply couldn't put it down. Building on two side characters in previous books, Etienne and Therri have their own adventures of finding love and testing priorities. Their wonderful characters are complimented by Mathilde and Lady Violette. - Englishrose

This story has twists and turns all along the way. Just when all is about to be revealed something else bad happens. The story had true history mixed with a lovely tale that put you right in the middle ages. I didn’t want it to end and come back to my time. If you ever wanted to time travel this book is as close as it gets, you really feel you are there. It's a tale of knights, tournaments, betrayal, murder, treason, unrequited love, sacrifice, and true love... What more can you ask for in a book? - Julie
