Dark Steel.

Sir Dane de Russe is forced to make a promise to a dying man.  The man was the Duke of Shrewsbury,  and he wants Dane to protect his daughter and his Dukedom. There is only one way that is acceptable.
Lady Grier de Lara has spent the last fourteen years shut away in a convent,  always believing she will eventually become a nun.  The news that she is an heiress and about to be married doesn't go down well.
Our honourable and battle hardened warrior never dreamt he would reach these dizzy heights.  Our neglected and nervous heroine is in for a very steep learning curve.
There is an unstable man that will cause everyone heartache.
I managed to get through this story with only a little cry. A marvellous love story, that you can't help but get involved in.  The characters are as usual fantastic it's great to meet the families of our heroes from previous books.  Our author always manages to bring something fresh to each book.
I have read lots of her books and loved all of them.  I am eagerly waiting for the next one. 


Sir Patrick de Wolfe is the commander of Berwick castle.  He has been told a band of Scottish rievers have attacked nearby and taken a captive. This rescue will be no problem.  The problems start afterwards.  His actions could cause trouble for the whole family with the church and the King.
Brighton de Favereux was a bastard, left at the priory as an infant.  Why would anyone want to abduct her now?.
A wonderful story full of adventure, danger and deep love. There are huge battles and soft family moments.  Our larger than life hero is the sort of the man any woman would want.  Even if he is a tiny bit arrogant.  Our sweet heroine is scared and confused,  with good reason.  The de Wolfe family and their connections will be familiar to anyone who has read this author's work before.  They are all wonderfully strong and well written characters.  It is always a pleasure to visit with them.  I loved every page,  as usual. 

By The Unholy Hand.

Sir Maxton of Loxbeare is one of England's most skilled Knights.  Since the end of the Crusades he and his friends have been mercenaries,  sometimes taking jobs nobody else could do.  However there is a line he will not cross.
Lady Andressa du Bose has been sent to a convent by her Aunt , so the woman can use her inheritance.  The convent has an evil Mother Superior. Her nuns live in constant fear and hunger.
This is a fantastic book,  absolutely filled with political intrigue,  danger and great characters.  Our hero is not a good man but he seems to be growing a conscience. Our terrified heroine seems timid,  but has got nerves of steel.
I won't say too much more about the plot because I don't want to spoil it for you.  Just know that before you start reading you should make sure you lock everybody out and make yourself comfortable,  because you will NOT be able to put it down.  I was awake until 1:30am to finish it.
I loved every page and can't wait to read the next in the series. 

Devil´s Dominion.

The sins of the father are definitely a burden for the children in this story.
Our "hero" is a particularly nasty man.  He is copying the pattern of the man who tore his family and everything he knew from him when he was a small child.  It's taken him twenty-five years to be strong enough.  Nothing will stop him now.
Lady Allaston De Velt decided when she was twelve to become a nun,  but fate it seems has other ideas.  She has heard the tales of her father's past deeds but now she will see for herself the consequences of them.
How our author get us to feel sorry for the "monsters" some of her heroes are is a wonder in itself.  She gives us a lot of gory details that some might find hard to read,  but are essential to the story.  It is an emotional story especially near the end.  Families can give us the greatest heartbreak and the greatest joy.  We get both here.  We also meet up with quite a few heroes from other books by this author,  but not with details that would spoil their books if you haven't read them yet.
I bought a boxed set with this the only book of the four that I didn't already have.  It was more than worth it.  The set is called "The Nunnery Brides" and they are all great full length books.
This author has never disappointed me and I have read over thirty of her books in the last several years.  I buy them now without even reading the blurb because I know I will love it.  But I do have to check my records to see if I already have it because she's changed her covers for much nicer ones,  so I sometimes think it's one that escaped me.
