Publisher's Summary

Listeners take note: This work was originally published under the title For Love and Honor, but it had been reissued with a new ending and bonus chapters!
1469 A.D. - Brogan d'Aurilliac is a master sergeant in the infantry of Edward IV. The son of a Germanic knight, he came to England at his father's death and worked his way up through the ranks of the infantry to become the king's highest ranking soldier. Brogan is a very large man with power and skill, but uneducated due to his family's immigrant social standing.
He meets our heroine by chance, a member of the mighty de Nevilles, the most powerful ruling family in England. The Lady Avalyn du Brant's uncle is the all-powerful Richard Neville, "The Kingmaker". Although Brogan knows she is out of his league, he is nonetheless taken by her. Avalyn, too, is intrigued by the big soldier with the heavy accent and menacing presence. What starts out as pity for the man turns to something else and her uncle, used to meddling in people's lives, seeks to separate his niece from Brogan by betrothing her to a powerful but foolish baron.
Yet Avalyn is intelligent; she takes charge of the situation and, like a great chess match, seeks to beat her uncle at his own game. Brogan, the man that enemy and ally alike call "The Monster" in battle, offers support and affection such as Avalyn has never known in this story of reversal of roles.
She is the 'smart and cunning' one in this battle to save her relationship with Brogan from her uncle's destruction.

Addictive story to read

I loved both the different endings but Willian was the better man more suited to her high status. It was an absorbing book and I loved it, full of action, romance and human courage. The performance was perfect.9

Intriguing book with 2 endings

As an avid Kathryn Le Veque fan, have been deliberately leaving this book because of its controversial nature. It was originally written with an ending, which Kathryn has rewritten & rebranded.

It is the love story against the backdrop of Edward IV & The Kingmaker falling out in the late 1460's. Avalyn is related to the Kingmaker Richard Neville but inadvertently bumps into a German soldier Brogan, who was at a crossroads in his life. The story tells of their love & how far they would go to be together. I do prefer the new ending but I cannot spoil too much for the reader - just to say I felt it flowed slightly better. Both endings are in the audiobook so take your choice?
