RT Rating

Mallory has an amazing ability for creating a riveting story, intertwining adventure and history overlaid with great depth of emotion and laced with a constantly increasing level of sensuality. Such depth and sensuality are a rare treat.

Lady Isobel Hume's husband's death freed her from an unwanted marriage. But she's shocked to learn that her husband's lands were deeded to a man she despises. Rather then wed him, she agrees to marry a French aristocrat chosen by King Henry. Such a marriage would build Henry's relationship with
his allies.

Sir Stephen Carleton is assigned
to a post in France to defuse disputes while acting as a spy. In addition, he becomes Isobel's guardian until her
marriage. Isobel remembers Stephen from years ago, and although she's determined to support king and country, sparks fly between them. The rescue
of two orphaned children, and Isobel's discovery that her future husband is a traitor result in an increasing mutual dependency and passion. As their
love grows they move toward an
explosive conclusion. (FOREVER, Dec.,
