Starred Reviews

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

Joyce DiPastena has lived true to her reputation and written another outstanding historical romance set in the tumultuous backdrop of France in the Middle Ages. With extraordinary skill, she has woven intrigue and danger around the exquisitely delicious romance between Etienne and Mathilde. - Wanda Luce

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
