A vexing lady.
Answering her father's summons to return home, Lady Beata Fauvel must evade capture by noblemen who seek to wed a great heiress. But when she falls into the hands of Queen Eleanor of England, she discovers her sovereign has plans of her own for the lady known France over as The Vestal Widow. Now Beata must not only escape the knight entrusted with ensuring she does not wed without permission, but survive a storm-tossed sea and revelation of a long-buried secret that could destroy her family. And what of a heart that wants what it cannot have? Will it only ever beat for the queen's man?
A repentant knight.
For years, Sir Durand Marshal has faithfully served his queen as penance for betrayal of the Wulfrith family. When he rescues a woman pursued by vassals of the French king, he is charged with delivering to England the nearly scandalous lady who has only a name in common with the one he once loved. Though he never expects to feel anything beyond annoyance for the outspoken Lady Beata, he finds himself drawn to yet another woman denied him. Can he fulfill his duty to his liege? Or will he forsake his redemption and forever ruin his reputation - more, the lady's?

A Lovely Continuing Saga
It was great to see Sir Durand come to a good end after his trespass against the Wulfrith family and the moral stain upon his character. Intimates that there is hope, no matter how hopeless a situation appears to be or how far one has fallen. Interesting and sometimes intense plot. Excellent narration. Can't wait until her new book "The Raveling" becomes an audiobook. I am a big fan of her entire medieval series and am presently in the midst of reading her new book. Thanks Ms. Leigh. Keep writing. Your audience loves every moment.
