'Meticulous research and strong storytelling'
Woman & Home
The heart-pounding end to The Wild Hunt series: stunning historical detail, beguiling characters and superb storytelling.
Renard, heir to Ravenstow, is a crusader far from the cold Welsh Marches of his birth.
Summoned home to his ailing father, Renard brings Olwen with him, an exotic dancing girl. Yet, in a political match made by their families, Renard is already betrothed to the innocent Elene and he knows he is returning to the duty of marriage.
Torn between Olwen and Elene, Renard's personal struggle is set against a background of increasing civil strife as Ranulf of Chester, his greedy neighbour, strives to snatch his lands. When Renard is taken prisoner at the Battle of Lincoln, his fate is placed in the hands of the two women - his former mistress, now in the bed of his deadliest enemy, and his determined yet inexperienced wife, protecting his lands against terrible odds . . .
