It was a "not bad" historical romance, but not as good as I was expecting from Candace Proctor. I'd give it a C+ rating overall. Not nearly as good as September Moon or Beyond Sunrise. In fact, I was a little disappointed.
This is from the back cover:
Spirited Attica d'Alerion will do anything to protect her beloved brother from danger. To warn him of a political betrayal that could lead to war, Attica disguises herself as a young courtier and bravely rides into the arms of destiny.
Damion de Jarnac is the black knight, a rogue horseman bound by no code of honor except his own blind ambition. Working for the aging King Henry, Damion scouts the hills of Britany on a dangerous mission to expose the treachery of Philip of France. There he joins forces with a courageous lad- who turns out to be the most intriguing woman he's ever met. But to win the beautiful Attica's love, Damion must slay the demons of an unforgivable past. And to save his doomed country, he must make a deadly decision that could break his lady's noble heart...
This is an excellent historical romance.
