Image of Templar Knight, Forbidden Bride

Banning uses the exotic setting of Moorish Spain, troubadours, tournaments, politics and adventure in an engaging tale that will pique the
interest of fans of the medieval era.

After years of crusading, Reynaud returns to Granada with an important message and a cache of gold for the Templars. His childhood friend Leonor has grown into a woman of beauty and, more dangerously, a woman with intelligence and a will of her own.

Lea is determined to become a troubadour and is thrilled when her father sends her to Count Henri's castle, where she can try out her skills. The only fly in the ointment is Reynaud, who seems immune to her beauty and her interest in him. He's a Templar, and therefore chaste, but Lea is a temptation to his mission and his soul. When danger surrounds them and an enemy stalks them, Lea and Reynaud must chose between duty and love. (Harlequin, Sep., 300 pp., $5.99)
