It is near Paris in 1285 and it is a hard life. Sybille is at her father's castle tending to it and her three young brothers. Her parents left for Paris with her four other brothers weeks ago and have not returned. There is only two old knights left for protection and she has no money for food.
Eustache is a black knight with a fearsome reputation, a veritable mountain of a man. He thunders to the castle on his charger with his knights and shows the two poor old retainers his papers. Then he promptly kills them.
Sybil hides her brothers and tries to flee but is caught. She had on chain mail while she was teaching her brothers to fight. He thinks she is a man and threatens her life. She admits that she is the woman he seeks for in his papers, which says he owns her father's castle and her. However, she will not let him claim her until they are wed and demands he show her respect.
I love the way the characters developed and matured before my eyes with each line. You knew that there were more secrets to be revealed. It was a very exciting and gripping tale. I loved it!
This is a sweet fantasy romance. It sucks you in from the first. I enjoyed the tale and wish there was more. I read it very quickly and wanted it longer. I hope to read more from this author and soon.
I give her five stars out five for a very fine read.
