Publisher's Summary

1305 A.D. - Being descended from a great though disgraced family can be a greater curse than most. As a direct descendent of Simon de Montfort, Lady Gray de Montfort Serroux has lived her life with the axe of shame hanging over her head. Because of this, her marriage matches were limited and she wed a dishonorable man who widowed her when he was murdered in a gambling game.

Left with a young daughter to support, Gray and her daughter and her mother have been living in poverty. But now her daughter is approaching marriageable age and Gray's conniving, haughty mother plots to marry the girl to the first wealthy man who offers for her hand. Meanwhile, an army of mercenaries seeks shelter at Gray's crumbling castle. Their leader, Sir Braxton de Nerra, is a knight bannerette.

Not sworn to a single liege, he travels with his mercenaries and has accumulated a good deal of wealth fighting other people's battles. Taken with the beautiful Lady Gray even as the lady's mother tries to force the granddaughter upon him, Braxton finds himself drawn into the desperate life they lead at the Castle Erith. As Braxton and Gray fall in love, Gray's mother, the evil Constance, continues to wreak havoc, now aimed at the man who so desperately loves her daughter.

Join Braxton as he fights for his new home, his new family, and is finally forced into the ultimate act of self-sacrifice to save those he loves.

Easy listen

Ending was a bit quick, as will all her books, but I thoroughly enjoyed the double dose of romance.

Loved the story and the awesome narrator!

Full of action and adventure and of course a wonderful love story! Really enjoyed listening to this narrator... I think he is now my absolute favorite ;). Also really really liked the secondary love story... A great "2 for 1". Kathryn is just an amazing story teller - rich details, suspense, characters... And no nonsense or long misunderstandings !!! Looking forward to the next in the series!

I'm a new Big Fan of Kathryn Le Veque Novels!

If you could sum up The Falls of Erith in three words, what would they be?

Love, Betrayal, Intrigue

What did you like best about this story?

The way it was written

Have you listened to any of Brian J. Gill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the second book I purchased that was narrated by Brian J. Gill. I plan on purchasing more of her audio books and I will look for the ones narrated by Brian and get those first. He is very very good. In fact, I would say he is in my top three favorites of all time.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I'm not good at tag lines

LeVeque and Gill make an awesome duo!

The Falls of Erith is one of my favorites of Kathryn Le Veque and Brian J. Gill is one of the best narrators. I strongly recommend this audio.

Love At First Sight

An older man and mercenary Sir Braxton de Nerra happens upon Grey Serroux without a second to spare. From there the story grows and the plot twists. Amongst the opportunists and plotters Lady Grey's mother turns out to be the worst villian of all. Full of action and adventure and great narration, I highly recommend this stand alone tale.

Read Five times

Even though I have either read, or listened to, this book five times, it is always new and exciting! I still weep in the sad parts and celebrate or laugh in the happier times. It is the epic love story that all romance writers desire to write and all romance readers hope they are getting when they buy a new book or audiobook.

A widow Grey Montfort, and her daughter Brook, in a very treacherous situation, are rescued by a mercenary knight named Braxton De Nerra and his men. After her rescue, Brook asks Braxton and his knights to dinner, not knowing there were almost 200 men in his party. When they get to her falling down castle, Braxton realizes how few groceries the women have and shares their supplies and a buck they had killed that day. Braxton and his men work until late repairing what they could of the most dangerous situations in the short time they have before going on to a previous business appointment. Thus a friendship of sorts is formed.

When his business is concluded, Braxton returns to Grey's Erith Castle with even more supplies and begin work in earnest on the castle, amid Grey's protestations that she could not pay them. They stayed for some time repairing and rebuilding. The first romance begins with Grey's mother, Constance Grey, doing everything in her power to throw a wrench iin the budding romance, lying, telling fifteen year old Brook to throw herself at Braxton and manipulation of everyone to get her way.

It is a very tense drama on every page because someting new and traumatic is happening on almost every page.
This is one of Kathryn Le Veque's earlier novels, but it is a very good read or listen, as Brian J. Gill narrates it very well. However the star of it al is the writing. It is a classic.

The Falls of Erith

Definitely a 5 Star performance by Brian J. Gill of a 5 Star book by Kathryn Le Veque! Somehow I had managed to miss reading this book, so listening to the audiobook was one surprise after another. Plot was amazing, characters were well developed and very personable and clearly brought to life by Brian J. Gill. This is another DO NOT MISS book and audiobook. Excellent experience!
