"A heart-warming and endearing tale"
A Warrior's Tournament becomes the turning point of a man's
life and the beginning of a legend. A legend of a brother
and sister who are to find true love in the most unlikely
of places and with the most unlikely of partners. During
the tournament Lord Thomas displays a moment of inherent
integrity and captures the attention of Lady Evelyn. She
offers a marriage contract that will save his family's
estate in Alandale as well as hers in Silavale. Though an
arranged marriage to a bride he has never met does not sit
well with Thomas, he accepts the terms to ensure the future
of his five sisters. But he doesn't count on meeting
Lupa...or the passion that unfolds after she and members of
The Pack save him from a kidnap attempt meant to thwart the
wedding. Nor is he prepared to learn the beautiful warrior
woman is his new bride.
Evelyn, on the other hand, is shocked to hear that Thomas
did not willingly enter into the agreement. She offers him
his freedom before their nuptials and is relieved when he
chooses to go through with their marriage...and warmed by
his delight that Lupa and Evelyn are one and the same. One
thing is certain, life will never be boring for this pair.
Months later as Lady Evelyn nears the end of her pregnancy,
Thomas's sister Emma is called in to help with the birth.
Martin Landersom was taken with Lady Emma upon meeting her
at her brother's wedding. He looks forward to her arrival
in Silavale, to courting the prickly midwife, but can he
break through her emotional barriers? The trained warrior
is prepared for battle if love is the prize.
When Lady Evelyn is kidnapped before her delivery, Thomas,
Martin and Emma must work together to save her from the man
who would claim Silavale as his own—at any price, including
Evelyn's death or that of her unborn babe. The trio scour
the countryside to learn of Evelyn's whereabouts and The
Pack is once more called into action, this time to save
their former leader.
There are several words to describe this book, though none
do it complete justice: fantastic, well-written, page-
turner. I loved the adventure and the people, enough to
lose a night's sleep to keep reading because I was so
involved with this story. Janet Miller, if you're not
working on a sequel involving others in The Pack, I'm
begging you to start one now. I would love to see more of
your characters come to life in the pages of a new book.
This is a tale worth reading. It's heart-warming and
endearing, starting with an arranged marriage from a young
man's point of view and emerging with the story of two
wounded veterans of love who must learn to let go of the
past and trust in the future. This is one book I'll be
purchasing as a 'keeper' and I look forward to more books
from this author.
