Welcome to the Lords of Thunder trilogy - Book Two

May 1258 A.D. - Now, Simon de Montfort is amassing a parliament whereupon King Henry and Simon will all have equal representation. As the politics in this difficult time begin to gain speed, Maximus de Shera, the consummate warrior and middle brother of the de Shera brother trio, has something very unexpected happen to him. In the midst of the political turmoil, he finds love in the daughter of a de Montfort supporter.

Lady Courtly Love de Lara is no ordinary woman - she is strong, wise, reasonable, and resourceful as well as being blindingly beautiful. As Maximus' brothers become sucked in deeper to de Montfort's intrigue, the strongest brother of all is distracted by a beautiful lady. The lady's father, however, is opposed to Maximus' suit and makes every effort to send his daughter far away where Maximus cannot find her. 

When Maximus is needed most in the struggle against Henry III, The Thunder Warrior is off on a quest of his own to locate, and marry, the woman he loves and do battle against a man he once considered an ally. Deep passion, family betrayal, family honor, grief, and a powerful love story culminate in Book Two of the Lords of Thunder Trilogy.


Maximus de Shera is known as the Thunder Warrior.  One of three brothers that are part of Steven de Montfort's fearsome war machine. 
They are on their way to a showdown with King Henry.  These are difficult times in England when some of the mightiest warriors in the land could be fighting on opposite sides from friends they usually fight alongside.  While the forces are gathering Maximus finds an unexpected diversion.
Lady Courtly Love de Lara's father is also part of the gathering, so she and her little sister are waiting in town.  A dramatic and hilarious meeting with the handsome warrior will alter a lot of lives.  Her over protective father could upset the best laid plans. 
An action packed tale that I couldn't put down.  The characters are fun,  strong and loving.  I did need the tissues at the end.  That's quite normal for this author to send us through all the emotions. 
Another marvellous story from one of my favourite authors.
I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
