I really liked this one, & I'm not a big fan of medieval reomance. The characters were multidimentional, the secondary characters were interesting; the plot was good & well-developed. A touch of mystery, a twist here, an awwww there - all makes for an enjoyable read.

Medieval fans have a real treat in store in Dodd's newest. Dodd (Move Heaven and Earth) fashions her hero and heroine with such candor and wit that it tempts the imagination. After an attempt is made on her life, Lady Alisoun, the lofty and aloof chatelaine of Georges Cross, seeks protection from the legendary mercenary Sir David of Radcliffe. Searching out the former "King's Champion," Alisoun discovers, to her dismay, a down on his luck, out of condition hasbeen. Desperate, Alisoun hires him, hoping that the past laurels of the fabled hero are enough to hold the assassin at bay. The sensitive and often humorous interaction between the hero and heroine keeps the story moving at top speed and should win this writer an even broader audience.
