Lady Alyse de Courcy is in love with Lord Braeton, a man she has barely spoken to. Fate decrees she marry his best friend, Sir Geoffrey Longford—a handsome, imposing knight, yet not the man she wants to wed.

Sir Geoffrey does not expect the beautiful stranger to win his heart the moment they meet, though the lady does exactly that. Can she return his regard?

Will he have time to win her love? More

Review by: Lydia Gastrell on April 28, 2013 :
I understand this is based loosely on the life on a real person, but taking as much license as she did I cannot understand why the author left the ending so...abrupt and unsatisfying. We are also given very little character depth or development. Why does Longford love her? Is is just because she's beautiful? That's the impression we're given, and it's terribly unremarkable. I have never liked Kismet or "love at first sight" stories, and this is one of them.

I will give the author kudos for historical accuracy. The way the lady reacted to her arranged marriage is very realistic to the time frame. Too often we see authors taking 20th century moral outrage and placing it on historical characters who simply would not have thought that way. This author avoids doing that very well. =)
