RITA Award Winning Novel
NO HEART EVER BEAT SO NOBLE—NOR SO STRONG
Britain, 1351. After an arduous exile to flee the darkness and danger sweeping her lands, Lady Elizabeth D’Auvers returns home to Woodell Castle, yearning only for her looms and her quiet life. To her astonishment, she finds the castle and farmlands thriving, thanks to Lord Thomas of Roxburgh, a knight errant whose size and strength offer protection to Elizabeth’s castle and its people.
Lord Thomas’s warm gaze makes Elizabeth’s flesh burn with unaccustomed fire, and her defenses crumble, leaving her heart as vulnerable as her trembling body. Yet chilling thoughts trouble her mind. For there is something dark and mysterious about this man—a secret that makes him as forbidden to desire as he is impossible to resist.
What a delightful book! I love the way Barbara Samuels weaves her tales of love and adventure. She is a colorful writer, and builds tension in such a way that leaves you breathless and engaged. If you like stories about how a good and generous soul conquers all, this is it. And not the least bit corny.
Vivid descriptions, tangible characters and adequate tension made this story a pleasure to read. This story was especially valuable to me because I was able to relax while I read it. Nothing was so terribly uncomfortable to disrupt my saturation into their lives.
I couldn’t put this book down. Richly detailed, well written, and strong and believable storyline. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!I felt like I was watching a movie playing before my eyes. I want to reread it right now!
This was an extraordinary book and very well written. It was an intensive read and I had to take little breaks here and there because I was nervous about what would happen and almost worried that there wouldn`t be a HEA – not something one usually worries about in romance.
I bought the book on a whim and I was so impressed that I immediately bought another of Samuel’s books. The plot was so different from anything else I’ve read and the hero really came to life. Hope you enjoy the book as much as I did!
