As the third wife of an abusive French vineyard owner, Madeleine Bouchard hasn’t produced the expected heir after three years of marriage. Fearing he plans to kill her, she flees during a trip to England. Unable to make her way home, she joins a troupe of traveling mummers and reinvents herself as the only woman troubadour in the land, captivating audiences with both song and story.
Nobleman Garrett Montayne’s fascination with Madeleine causes him to pay the troupe to bypass their next stop in order to journey to his estate. Though he suspects Madeleine of being a thief with dark secrets, love blossoms between them under the magical moon of summer solstice.
But Madeleine’s past is about to catch up with her, as her husband is set to arrive to conduct business with Garrett. Madeleine determines to free herself from her loveless marriage and make a new life with Garrett, no matter what the cost.
“I definitely enjoyed reading this book. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a great read. This story has drama, love, cruelty, forgiveness and much more!”
“I found this book using the Kindle Unlimited program and I am so glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed this remarkable and compelling story. It is not an easy story to read, since it deals with adultery, something that skirts what is traditionally acceptable in a medieval historical romance, but Ms. Linwood handles the subject with a masterful touch.”
“Hard to put down this book. Lots of twists and turns. The main characters are so likable that you will be cheering them along.”
“I enjoyed this book. It was romantic and a little different than the average romance novel. Nice twists in the plot. If you are looking for a quick fun read this is it.”
