Publisher's Summary

The D’Argents. It all began with a woman...too.

Medieval Normandy. Before William the Conqueror conquered, there was the family D’Argent. And a marriage alliance destined to give rise to England’s formidable Wulfriths.

Behold the victor.

The day Godfroi D’Argent defeats his brother in a contest of arms, he gains his family’s lands. And a less than desirable bride. Certain it will be years before his enemy’s daughter grows into a lady of worth, he devotes himself to securing his lordship. When at last Robine assumes her rightful place, Godfroi is unprepared for how much she moves him. Counting it weakness, he refuses to acknowledge the depth of his feelings even to himself - until he falls in battle. With little hope of restoring the warrior, he allows Robine and their young sons to believe him dead. But when the mysterious hermit who pulled him from the battlefield persuades him to return home, it is not to a wife with open arms but one entangled in sin. Is it true only three are needed to salvage a marriage - husband, wife, and God? And what is to be done with proof of Robine’s indiscretion?

Beware the she-bear.

Just as Robine’s husband rejects her on their wedding night, so too her love. When she becomes his wife in truth and he withholds his heart, she determines to cease loving him. But what proves impossible becomes irrelevant when he is slain. Painfully aware once her period of mourning ends she must provide her sons a protector, she undertakes a journey to her family and is set upon by brigands. In the midst of fiercely defending her children, a chevalier rides to her aid and proves a worthy suitor. When Robine’s uncertainty over wedding her betrothed leads to a fall from grace, there is no going back - unless Godfroi returns from the dead. Can she forgive her husband for allowing her to believe he perished? Can he forgive his wife for a sin soon apparent to all? And what of granting the innocent grace?

Beautiful story

Loved this story. Unfortunately, as with most Tamara Leigh books, Mary Sarah's bizarre sing-song narration detracted gravely from the comprehensibility of the story. Her narration is always a negative in Ms. Leigh's wonderful stories, but it seemed more dramatized and pronounced in this book than some others - including a strange lisp she adopted that I haven't noticed before, where she turned final T's and D's into TH's, perhaps to further the French accent the whole book is read in?
It's such a wonderful book and I'm so distressed by the style this narrator has chosen for all of these books. I ended up reading the last 80% of it from the Kindle version because I could no longer listen.
It is a wonderful story and I'm so glad to have this piece of the D'Argent/Wulfrith history.

What a conclusion to this series!

I must confess I had a hard time liking Godfroi at the beginning of this book… but the message of forgiveness was strong and I was in tears by the end! The statement of the marriage needing three… God, the husband, and the wife… had been said in previous books but it was good to hear what had transpired to make that such a powerful statement!
Once again, Mary Sarah Agliotta, brought to life these characters and made them seem flesh and blood. She is an incredible narrator!

Dauntless

I have waited what seems like forever, though I'm sure it wasn't really, but there aren't words to describe the depth of emotion within this book! It is actually a look back to the parents and grandparents of Seer, his brothers and his sister. Now I feel I must go back and listen to books 1-7 of this series to cement in place all of the characters and their lives. Mary Sarah Agility brings much feeling and magic with her narration. Her narration style was different from those I had previously favored, but as I continued to listen, it became clear to me that she was the perfect choice for narrator. This one brought me to tears even more than the others, so intense were the characters. You definitely shouldn't miss this series, but be sure to have plenty of tissues handy and be ready to hide from your family if they don't understand the great connection between these characters and yourself. This is really much more than a 5 Star rating,but that's all that is allowed. 😍❤😍❤
