It’s suave, handsome Edward de Wolfe’s tale as he vies for the hand of Paris de Norville’s daughter, Cassiopeia. The only obstacle is the bride herself – she can’t stand the sight of him!

1275 A.D. - With brothers Scott, Troy, and Patrick married and settled, and brother James’ recent marriage to Rose Hage, it’s finally younger brother Edward’s time to shine.

Having grown up with many cousins around him, Edward had a particular eye on Cassiopeia de Norville, daughter of his father’s best friend, Paris. As children, they tormented each other, but it was Edward’s way of showing attention to a young lady who terrified him. Several years later, Cassiopeia is betrothed to another man and Edward must ride escort as he takes her to her future husband, but his heart is in turmoil… is she still the same annoying girl he used to tease? Or was that teasing a cover for deeper feelings he refused to admit?

Edward soon comes to realize that he has feelings for Cassiopeia he can no longer deny.

This puts him in an awkward position. Named for his father’s father, who was a great diplomat, Edward also has his grandfather’s politically-savvy way. He is a man of great words and swift action, and he uses both on Cassiopeia, who is shocked by his declaration of love. She rejects him soundly, but deep down, she’s giddy and flattered. She, too has always has an eye towards the handsome Edward, but on the eve of meeting her betrothed, Edward has made the situation most difficult. Rather than shame her father, Cassiopeia decides the best course of action is to discourage Edward... whether or not it breaks her heart.

But the man won’t take no for an answer.

Meanwhile, Cassiopeia’s betrothed is a man with deep, dark intentions. As a military advisor who has the king’s ear, it is his intention that his betrothal to Cassiopeia be the first step in ultimate goal of destroying the House of de Wolfe. As the bastard son of a man William de Wolfe once killed, he plans to devastate the Houses of de Wolfe and de Norville from within.

It’s politics, passion, and old hatreds as Edward tries to charm Cassiopeia away from a man who only wants to destroy them all. Will the plan be discovered before it’s too late?

Another stunning adventure in the de Wolfe Pack series brings Edward de Wolfe to the forefront of England’s politics – and a life or death battle of his own.

The de Wolfe Pack Series is Le Veque's flagship Medieval series with 14 novels. They are stand alones and can be read in any order, but the chronological order by year in which the story is set is:

The Wolfe (originally Book 1)
A Joyous de Wolfe Christmas
A Wolfe Among Dragons
Dark Destroyer
The Lion of the North
Walls of Babylon


Edward de Wolfe has always considered himself the lesser of the de Wolfe sons.  His brothers are great battle hardened warriors,  but he is a diplomat for the King. 
He has made a big success in his chosen work and gained land and a title,  but that doesn't stop him feeling inadequate when he is among the family. 
He has however returned home for a huge family get together.  His great love for his family has never wavered,  but there is one person he didn't want to see. 
Cassiopeia de Norville has also returned home after years in the Queen's court.  She has grown into a strong minded and independent young lady.  Her mother however decides it's past time for her to find a husband, and what better time than when so many are gathered for a celebration.  Her father has his own ideas on how to make his choice for her, come up to scratch quickly. 
What none of them know is someone in the area has murder on his mind.  Lives are set to change drastically in just a few days. 
A very exciting,  funny and at times emotional story. We meet the whole extended family and enjoy all their different personalities.  As is usual for me when I read one of this author's books, I could not put it down.  I cried in some places and giggled in others.  The heartbreak felt by the wonderfully emotional father at the very end added a great touch. 
Thank you so much Kathryn Le Veque for another great story.
