Lady Meriel de Vere had deceived Adrian, Earl of Shropshire. Standing in the royal forest, her falcon perched on her arm, she boldy claimed to be a Welsh commoner, not a noble Norman. Lord Adrian beheld in wonder her raven-black hair and defiant blue eyes, heard her lies, and felt a dark, primeval passion rob him of all reason. In one irrevocable move of fate, he ordered this fair beauty locked in his castle's tower, vowing to entice her into surrendering her kisses with lips as hungry as his own. Never to give in, to die if she must, was Meriel's vow...until one rash moment of impetuousness swept them both up in the royal battles of kings...and into a dangerous intrigue of sweet caresses...and fiery, all-consuming love.

It was long and boring and the same thoughts from the characters were repeated over and over again through out the book. I just started skipping pages and I was still able to understand the ending. Read full review
