Firstly let me say this author writes with such a beautiful technique. She knows how to draw vivid pictures in the readers mind and engage the reader emotionally. Unfortunately this brilliance is sporadic and in the case of this novel, her emotional depth only stretched as far as the hero and then only into the first half of the book.

From the opening paragraph this story pulled me in. The hero is a trained lethal knight you learn from his perspective who he is and what his hopes and dreams are. The heroine has to reconcile her hatred of the knight (who shoved her away when she begged to him to save her father and the seductive handsome man who loves her.Great story of redemption. It is on my keeper shelf.
Tess hates Lord Richard of Easterby since the night she begged for him to stop the burning of her father for heresy. He could do nothing to stop it but she blamed him for it. The King arranges their marriage so Richard will have her money to help finance a battle for the King. Tess plans to kill Richard for revenge, but she never counted on falling in love with him first.

The first few chApters certainly catch your interest. But as a whole the story fails to maintain it. It begins to drag and I prayed for it to end and end quickly.
