Tara's life is shrouded in secrets. It seems no one can reveal the mysterious circumstances surrounding her birth. All she knows is that they are somehow entwined with a dark emerald - the jewel identifying the lost heir to Tower Twyll.

Banished form Twyll by his brutal half brother, Rhys has carved out a new life as the Outlaw. But then he captures a raven-haired beauty who not only inflames his desire, but carries the legendary jewel that threatens his very quest for revenge.

Recommends it for: historical romance lovers
This is the second book of a trilogy but the only one I have read.
Wales around the end of the thirteenth century. Tara is out to find out the truth about herself and to find her destiny. She runs into the outlaw Rhys instead. A bit of mystisym, romance, greed, revenge. An altogether enjoyable read.
I actually loved this book. I dont really read romance books (my husband does) but this book had adventure, mystery and romance. couldnt put it down till i was done
Picked this one up from the libraries book sale so I made myself read it. It was not quite my style but was an easy book to read.
I can honestly say that I have not enjoyed any "older" books quite so much as I have enjoyed reading this series!
not what I was expecting - graphic romance novel set in 13th century - like her modern mystery genre much better

I thought that this one was good. The begining really sucked, but i thought that the story was fair. Cute love
