Phillipa de Beauchamp, as impulsive as she is beautiful, flees her father's castle when she hears she's to be wed to the repellent Baron de Bridgport. But her daring escape in a wool wagon quickly becomes a misadventure and she winds up in the arms of Dienwald de Fortenberry, a rogue as smooth and bold as Aquitaine wine. Soon Philippa finds herself a prisoner at Dienwald's castle, where there are mysteries to be solved, villians to be bested, and a stubborn man's heart to be won. You'll also meet old friends, Graelam and Kassia de Moreton, from Fire Sone, as well as the Kind of England, who is closer to Plilippa than she could ever imagine.

Veteran romancer Coulter ( Fire Song ) again blends likable characters and mildly unorthodox (by the standards of the genre) eroticism with overwhelming coincidence and a dash of humor. This romp in 13th-century England should entertain her fans. When Philippa de Beauchamp hears that she is to marry William de Bridgport, "a fat old man with no teeth, and a paunch," she flees from home--buried in a load of dirty, raw wool on its way to market. Bad turns to worse when Dienwald de Fortenberry, the desperately poor but spirited "Rogue of Cornwall," seizes the wool shipment and Philippa becomes his prisoner. The young woman's spinning and weaving skills, as well as her ability to read and calculate, soon earn her the household's esteem and the position of steward, while her beauty and strong streak of sheer devilment capture Dienwald's affection, as he earns hers. Yet their happiness is threatened when Sir Walter de Grasse, Dienwald's greatest enemy, learns a secret about Philippa's past, a secret that not even she knows but that can change both her and Dienwald's future.

Philippa de Beauchamp, as impulsive as she was beautiful, fled her father's castle when she heard she was to wed the repellant Baron de Bridgeport. But her daring escape in a wool wagon became a misadventure when she landed in the arms of Dienwald de Fortenberry, a rogue as smooth and bold as Aquitaine wine. Soon Philippa found herself a prisoner at Dienwald's castle - a place where there were mysteries to be solved, villains to be bested, and a very stubborn man's heart to be won. Earth Song is terrific reading!

This is a delightful romance, an early English romp with castles and lords and ladies, knights and knaves with ulterior motives, and a heroine who leaps before she looks.
.
Author's note: Meet Philippa de Beauchamp--daring, impulsive, guilty of thinking with her feet and not with her head whenever she's in a bind. Philippa flees her father's castle when she hears she's to be married to the revolting Baron de Bridgport. But her daring escape in a wool wagon becomes a disaster when she winds up at the castle of St. Erth, whose owner, Dienwald de Fortenberry, is a rogue as smooth and bold as Aquitaine wine, and poor as a church mouse.
What is he to do with a girl who won't tell him who she is, who is as tall as he is, and so beautiful it makes his teeth ache just to look at her?
There are villains to dispatch, mysteries to solve, and a little boy for Philippa to win over.

Catherine Coulter is a fantastic author when it comes to spinning magical tales of historicaL romance. I love her "Song" series and this is the Earth Song book of that series. It captures the reader with its memorable characters, humor, and a wonderful storyline. A real page turner! Oh, and note to the buyer..my book is the same book but has a different orange cover.

Second in the series, I liked this one better than Fire Song. Phillipa de Beauchamp is a stronger character than Kassie from Fire Song, and the book was more enjoyable because of it. Phillipa's responses to Dienwald's actions were those of a woman who fights for what she wants, which made the story lighthearted and funny.
