A Knight With Grace by Laurel O´Donnell ARC Review.

O'Donnell, Laurel- A Knight with Grace (final)

Lady Grace Willoughby defies her father’s orders to marry Sir William de Tracy and escapes with a friend. She has no intention of wedding a cursed man, a man ostracized from the church, a man who would only doom any future children they might have to the fires of Hell. She prays for a knight to rescue her. Excommunicated and outcast for a horrible crime in his past, Sir William de Tracy searches for forgiveness. Marriage has never crossed his mind until Lord Willoughby commissions him to retrieve his fleeing daughter and honor the dying wish of his father by marrying Grace. But things are not as they seem. And when an assassin tries to kill Grace, William must choose between his soul and the woman he has come to love. Can William and Grace overcome their past and find the redemption and love both are so desperately seeking?

Grace Willoughby is at her mother's death bed trying to comfort her when her father throws her out of the room.
He has suddenly turned into a bad tempered and hurtful man. He is insisting Grace marry a Knight who has been excommunicated because of his part in the assassination of Archbishop Thomas Becket.
William de Tracy expected his betrothal to be called off when he is summoned by the girl's father. Nobody will want a murder in the family. He couldn't be more wrong.
Our heroine is a very confused young lady. How can everything have changed so quickly and be so bad?  Death seems to be following her flight.
Our hero is carrying a mighty load of guilt. He has sworn never to kill again.  Unfortunately he will have to.
  It is a clean romance full of action,  emotion and surprises. You will not believe who the real villain is. A very unusual and intriguing story line.
It is the first in a series. I'm assuming the other books will be about William's friends.  I look forward to reading them.

 Laurel O’Donnell has won numerous awards for her works, including the Holt Medallion for A Knight of Honor, the Happily Ever After contest for Angel’s Assassin, and the Indiana’s Golden Opportunity contest for Immortal Death. The Angel and the Prince was nominated by the Romance Writers of America for their prestigious Golden Heart award. O’Donnell lives in Illinois with her cherished children, her beloved husband and her five cats. She finds precious time every day to escape into the medieval world and bring her characters to life in her writing.
