Summary

In the safety of her adoptive father's estate, south of London, Felise Scelfton is raised oblivious to the power of her beauty and rumors of her dowry. But when the knights of Windsor court brandish their swords and bid for her hand, Felise realizes she'd better keep her flirtatious tongue in check, lest her jests be taken as vows. Little does Felise know that King Henry II has already decided her fate - his royal command gives her hand to Sir Royce Leighton, the scarred and brooding lord of Segeland, in order to seal a political alliance. Despite the arranged marriage, desire blooms between the newlyweds and Royce finds his bitter memories fading in the presence of his alluring and nurturing young wife. But the King hasn’t had his last word just yet, and old suitors seek revenge. Court scandals are never simply forgotten and Felise and Royce must decide if their love can withstand the cruelest of betrayals.

Good Story

Not your run of the mill Historical Romance . A little slow at times, but kept my interests to the end.

The story begins at court in the late 1100's just before Elenore betrayed King John -- where the King arranged strategic marriages, where betrayals and intrigue ran rampant.

Anne Flosnik gave a great performance.

A Enjoyable Read

I was not impressed with previous Robyn Carr historical romance books, but I took a chance on this one and I was not disappointed. The narrator was perfect, the story moves quickly and the romance had just enough heat.

If you like historical romance you will enjoy this one it's a easy read.

Couldn't get past the narrator

Ugh! I love a narrator that can do accents, but this is not one of them. The accent she tries to pull off sounded so overly pronounced and forced that it was seriously grating on the nerves, like nails on a chalkboard. I can't speak to the story. I love Robin Carr, but I just couldn't stand to listen more than a few minutes. Sorry Robin. :( Thank goodness you found Teresse Plummer for you books.

What?

I am a huge fan of Robyn Carr and while I might enjoy this story otherwise, the narrator is unbelievably horrible...I will not be finishing this story!! As I have loved all of her other stories and have heard 25, at least, I am voting that the story was excellent but, again, this bears repeating, Anne Flosnikj did a horrible job with this story!!!

Not Carr's best

Historical romance is not Carr's best format. She does fantastic with modern day romance, witness the Virgin River series, but not here.

The story was too long, possibly in attempt to build historical scene setting. That really doesn't contribute.

The story was good but could have been better developed in itself.

Flosnik is a narrator you either love or hate. I love her.

What A Voice

The person's voice who did this audio book was so annoying I couldn't get past the first chapter.

Robyn always comes through.

Again a very well written story by Robyn. Her stories are always intriguing and makes you feel you are there living the story right along with the characters.
