Lord of Midnight
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The same rebellion that leaves Clarence of Summerbourne dead also leaves his castle and his daughter, Claire, forfeit to the king’s champion. Renald de Lisle arrives at the castle gates as a warrior, takes possession of Claire like a conqueror, and sets her heart racing as her lover. Amid moonlight and velvet, she becomes his bride; atop tangled bedclothes she discovers passion. But then she learns Renald’s terrible secret and vows revenge against this man she wed, this man she loved with all her heart.
A little slow...
I read fast, which is a good thing with this book. There's a lot of handwringing and internal debate over the nature or right/wrong and good/evil. I'd have liked a little less philosophizing and a bit more action. The hero shows to better advantage in Dark Champion
