First Place 2009 Royal Palm Literary Awards

“A Compelling Read; Page-turner.”
“The beginning of a Hundred Years' War is the backdrop for a compelling tale filled with treachery, determination, and love. Moore captures the imagination with her vivid portrayal of the era and interesting characters.”
~ Romantic Times 4 stars, Sensuality rating: Mild.

“The vivid storytelling, combined with the strong characters and compelling plot make this book well worth reading.   I found myself strongly reminded of the classic “Forever Amber”, so if you enjoyed that book you'll likely enjoy this one as much, though I felt that Jeanne was actually a much stronger female lead. In any case, I highly recommend it.” ~ You Gotta Read Reviews

“The characters are fully developed, unique, interesting and easy to love. The plot is strong and full of life, the writing clear and evocative. I never once felt lost or confused, but only intrigued and determined to keep reading on to the end.

“ . . . this is a very good historical romance with a strong female lead character. It's well-written and I really enjoyed it a lot. It was fun to read about a medieval age woman standing up for herself and even teaching the men a thing or two. Jeanne's adventures were exciting and interesting, and the story as a whole was very well thought out and vividly told. Definitely worth reading.”
