Amber de Burgh is a novice of the Sisters of St. Ermengild, in training to take her final vows of becoming a nun. But when the doors to the church slam open one night and a wounded man named Lucifer who everyone thinks is the devil enters, her life changes forever. 

Lucifer, or Lucas as he prefers to be called, has a very tarnished past and a future that fares no better. And when he lays his eyes on the abbey's new novice, he knows he can never let her become a nun. 

Having been abandoned as a baby on the steps of the church, Lucas will do anything to live a different lifestyle. And before he knows it, he finds himself right in the middle of church corruption. He is sent to Canterbury on a pilgrimage with Amber, but while she intends to pray, that is the furthest thing from his mind. 

His mission is to steal the Regale ruby of Canterbury Cathedral at Becket's shrine. Can a pure dove change the morals of a devil or will he change her morals first? Find out in Amber - Book 3 of the Daughters of the Dagger Series.


Lucifer returns to the monastery where he was abandoned as a baby.  Father Armand had sent him on a pilgrimage to punish him.  Since he has been out in the world Lucifer has discovered that the priest is not the godly man he pretends to be. 
Amber de Burgh of Blackpool is one of four sisters.  She decided to become a nun to pay penance for the grave sins committed by her sisters and mother. 
Our hero has suffered and is still struggling to find out who he can be. 
Our heroine is sweet , loving and honest with herself and others. 
This is the third of the Daughters of the Dagger series,  but easily read as a stand alone. 
A very different style of historical romance,  giving us an insight into the power of the church in that era.  All the characters are strong and well written.  Their personalities really shine through. The story line is fun and sexy.  I have read others in the series and  loved all of them as much as this one.
