Publisher's Summary

AD 1187. They call him the Great Defender. As Richard the Lionheart's most powerful general, Sir Juston de Royans is as moody as he is skilled. Reminiscent of the ancient warrior Achilles, Juston fights when it is necessary, instead choosing to command the powerful men beneath him. Never wrong in action or command, he has never lost a battle, and when he finds himself in the midst of a terrible siege at Bowes Castle, he predictably emerges the victor, with the lady of the keep as his prize.

And that's when the trouble begins.

When the never-wrong egotist meets the flame that will melt his frozen heart, a romance of epic proportions happens.

5 "BLOWN AWAY" STARS

This is my first book by Kathryn Le Veque and I must stay that I am blown away. She tells such a vivid story. This was a good story of lost but finding true long in the end. Justin of de Royans was such a great character. He was a no nonsense man that loved fiercely. I am searching for my next Le Veque now.

Brad Wills did an awesome job with narration. He made you feel like you were inside the story.

Better than Fantastic!

What another SUPER combination of Kathryn's story and Brads voice. I could listen to him all day. He brings every character to life with his ability to change from one to the next and I know exactly who is speaking. I get sucked into thinking I am right there watching everything play out. I have cried, laughed and cringed at times.

Lord of Winter

I enjoy KLV’s medieval romances a lot, but it always makes me shake my head in bemusement when the King’s most powerful knights are able to marry whomever they want without asking the King’s permission, lol.

Another Winner from Kathryn Le Veque

The novel is set against the backdrop of the power struggle between Henry II & Richard the Lionheart. Having lost his family previously in tragic circumstances, Sir Juston Re Royans is reluctant to open his heart again. In fact, he isa rather jaded, rigid yet indolent & self centred at the start of the story. Enter Emberley, a relative of the family who killed his wife, & who stands up to him at every turn.
Won't give any more away but just to say some of Kathryn's most notable protagonists the de Lohr brothers, Marcus Burton & Gart Forbes make an appearance in their younger years.
Brad Willis is one of my favourite narrators & brings the story alive with the diverse set of characters.
Enjoy! I did !
