About this title

Synopsis:

The end of her world . . . and the beginning of her greatest adventure

In a time of lords and ladies, Lady Alinor Devaux was an anomaly. The mistress of Roselynde was young, uncannily intelligent, wealthy and had a reputation for being as fierce and protective as any feudal lord before her. Alinor was unmarried and a rich prize for greedy men seeking power and wealth.

When the Queen makes Alinor a royal ward and assigns a warden to oversee the running of Roselynde, Alinor must deal with not only fighting off unwanted suitors, but with the warden as well! Not willing to be any man or woman's pawn, she is determined to make Sir Simon Lemagne's life miserable. But the seasoned knight isn't quite what Alinor expects.

What belongs to Alinor remains with Alinor, and God help any woman, man or holy crusade that gets in her way . . .

Review:

In this classic historical romance, author Roberta Gellis spins an unforgettable tale of honorable knights and beautiful ladies, political intrigue in the royal court, and a daring crusade through exotic Byzantium into the Holy Land. Lady Alinor Devaux of Roselynde is a wealthy heiress. At 16 years old, she is well past marriageable age and as willful as she is beautiful. When her beloved father dies, the queen appoints Sir Simon Lemagne as the Warden of Alinor and her estates. But the Queen didn't bargain on Alinor and Simon falling in love. Simon knows that Alinor could attract a richer and more powerful lord as her husband, but Alinor has set her heart and mind on having only Simon--and what Alinor wants, Alinor gets. Through political intrigue and daring battles, this noble knight and strong lady hold fast to each other and to their determination to stay together. This first book in the Roselynde Chronicles is a marvelous story and beloved by romance fans everywhere.
