Image of The Templar's Seduction

Readers count on McCall for accurate, steamy, exciting medieval romances, and she doesn't disappoint as the last Templar finds his match. Following a classic Martin Guerre theme, McCall illuminates the era and captivates.

Caught trying to sell Templar treasures, Sir Alexander de Ashby is given a chance to evade the hangman. He is to pose as the late Earl of Marston, infiltrate Marston's keep and convince the earl's wife that he is her husband, Robert. Lady Elizabeth might be relieved that Rob has returned, but she doesn't believe the man claiming to be him is her husband.

On the surface Beth acts the perfect wife, welcoming Rob/Alex's touch, but she is determined to get behind the charade. Even as Beth exposes Alex's secret she realizes she needs him, not to defend her castle but to be the man she craves in her heart. Theirs is a love born of a lie that becomes a union of desire.
