Summary

A USA Today best seller! Welcome to an old-school Le Veque novel...

A mighty knight known as "The Centurion" is the man in control behind a powerful liege with dementia, but when his love for a young woman begins to compromise the stability of the Scottish marches, he must make a choice between love or peace. 

Sir Torston de Royans is known on the border as a man of reason, wisdom, and great strength. He also happens to serve a greatly respected liege who slips further into dementia with each passing day. Lord Lionel Harringham believes himself to be a Roman Caesar, and Torston is his great centurion. Unfortunately, Lord Lionel also commands one of the largest castles in the north, and Torston finds himself in a position of not only the protector of the castle known as The Lyceum, but the protector of Lord Lionel’s reputation.

Adding to this stressful situation is Lady Alyx de Ameland. A young woman from an allied family, she has loved Torston for as long as she can recall, but he’s never shown much interest in her. At least not publicly. But privately, Torston longs for Alyx a great deal. However, he cannot think of marriage because of Lord Lionel’s madness. It wouldn’t be fair to bring a wife into the mix of madness that plagues The Lyceum.

But Torston isn’t the only one who longs for the lovely Alyx. A Scottish laird has his eye on her, too.

Laird Douglas Kerr is a man who covets the English lass and does everything in his power to convince Alyx’s father that he would make a good husband for her, but his motives are not honorable. He covets Alyx’s land more than Alyx herself.

As Torston realizes that he can no longer wait to declare his intentions for Alyx, something he has been keeping secret for years finally makes itself, or herself, known: his betrothed. And she brings hell with her.

It’s medieval mayhem, madness, and matrimony on the borders as Torston and Alyx fight for a love that, once realized, is more powerful than all the armies in England and Scotland.

Will true love prevail in spite of the odds?

The Centurion

I absolutely loved reading the book when it first appeared on my kindle, but hearing Brad Wills narrate this fabulous book was just the icing on the cake! I always tend to lose myself in the stories Brad narrates for us. Everyone comes to life. Even if you have read the book, you will still need your box of tissues at the end. 5+ Stars to both Kathryn Le Veque and Brad Wills for this amazing collaboration! 💗

Fantastic!

Kathryn never disappoints with the dynamic tales she weaves. They all are wonderful and this one is no different. Brad Wills is the perfect narrator for her stories. He has the voices for each character that I recognize in an instant! He is perfection and I love to hear his voice. Between the two of them, I get caught up and feel every emotion!
