GWYNETH AND THE THIEF
Genre: Historical Romance
When her father, the Earl of Haverleigh, falls deathly ill, Gwyneth is forced to take on the role of ruling the kingdom. Unfortunately, without her father's rule, the kingdom is at an ultimate low. But when Gwyneth stumbles across Gavin, a sword-wielding thief, an idea comes to her. Noticing his bulging muscles, she takes him home.
Gwyneth has rescued Gavin, but only for a price. She asks him to train her peasants to become soldiers, and threatens his life
In an unfortunate turn of events, Haverleigh's nearest neighbor is the cruel-hearted Baron Devilliers. He is trying for Gwyneth's hand in marriagemuch to her dismay. He will stop at nothing, and when he becomes suspicious of Gavin, he proves his ruthlessness.
Despite its predictability, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were very well conceived and the scenery was beautifully drawn. I was also impressed by the thoroughness of the research. I recommend this to any teen who likes a good, historical read. SWEET (Jul., 288 pp.,$4.99)
