Hostage of the HearteBook - 2010
"...an exciting, nail-biting tale, full of high stakes and adventure..." Classic Romance Revival England, September 1066. With the northern militia raised to support the new English king, the Welsh borderlands are dangerously unprotected. Leading a force of Welsh countrymen, Rhodri ap Hywel sweeps down the valley to reclaim stolen lands, taking the Saxon Lady Dena as his battle hostage. But who is the more barbaric: a man who protects his people by the strength of his sword-arm, or Dena's kinsfolk who swear fealty to a canon of falsehoods and refuse to pay her ransom? Betrayed as worthless, can she place her trust, and her life, in the hands of a warrior-knight shielding dark secrets of his own? And when the tables are turned and his honeyed words become spite, with whom does she stand?"...a cracking romance set in a cataclysmic period of English history." - Madeleine McDonald, author of Enchantment in Morocco."...the novel is fast paced, full of tension, both emotional and sexual, and tells a great story..."
