Publisher's Summary

A. D. 1326 - Tate Crewys de Lara is the son of kings. The illegitimate son of Edward Longshanks, Tate has the qualities of a magnificent king. But fate is cruel, leaving him a mere knight protecting young Edward III during the uncertain days following the horrific murder of Edward II.

While gathering allies for the young heir in Northumberland, he meets the Lady Elizabetha "Toby" Cartingdon. Daughter of the Lord Mayor of Cartingdon Parrish, Toby is a gorgeous woman with a mind for business. It is she who runs the parrish, not her father. Taken aback by the strong, bitter female, Tate is nonetheless intrigued with her. He soon discovers why Toby seems so hard; her father is a drunkard and her mother is an invalid, leaving Toby responsible to not only provide for the family, but also for the welfare of her small sister.

Feeling something more than curiosity, Tate begins to break through the hard surface to discover the warm and compassionate woman beneath. Yet factions who would see the young heir dead make a sudden appearance, drawing Toby into their malevolent plan. Soon she finds herself linked to both Tate and the quest to take the throne from Roger Mortimer. It becomes Tate's destiny to not only win a throne for young Edward, but to win Toby's heart as well.

    Story
    "Well written developed story, characters, plot."

    Let's face it not all romance novels are well written many are thrown together with a formula and without much character development going straight to the sex. Ms.Le Veque's books have more historical fiction with character development and in context sexual romance. The writing flows and captures the reader. The narrator for this book does a nice job and with a deep voice his reading a soap box could send most ladies twittering. I read a lot of Highland and Victorian era romances so these are a nice new niche for me and I appreciate the dark ages in a new way of romance and chivalry. Definitely worth a credit.

    Story
    "Best Knights!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dragonblade to be better than the print version?

    I loved the print version of Dragonblade, which is why I bought the audiobook. The audiobook, narrated by the talented Tim Campbell, really made the story come alive! I LOVED it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragonblade?

    There were so many "moments" in this story for not only Toby and Tate, but the ancillary characters as well. I enjoyed the relationship between the knights, their joking, and their pranks, especially with their young squire.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There is a scene, at the end, when Toby uses her acting ability to save Tate. It is daring, and funny, and I thought it was perfect!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Toby suffers a great loss during the book, and without giving anything away, there is a scene that really made me feel the ache of her character's grief.


    Any additional comments?

    Tim Campbell did a wonderful job narrating the first of this trilogy- I can't wait to hear the rest!

    when she went back in to offer her body in exchange for her husbands life.

    "The song of love"

    Kathryn LeVeque has nailed it again. Her love stories touch the readers heart, aching us to get yet another adventure to cuddle up and listen to. I'm so happy I discovered her. I thought there was only one writer who had a magic formula, but now I have found her!!

    "Good adventure & romance!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes because I really like the novel by Kathryn Le Veque.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragonblade?

    When Toby's little sister died. I had forgotten about that so it was so shocking!


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes.


    Do you think Dragonblade needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It already has 2 sequels that are also very good!


    Any additional comments?

    I love the novels by Kathryn Le Veque, but the only issue I had with the audio recording was I felt the narrator's accent was fake. I liked how he changed his voice for each character, but didn't care for his accent.
