Lady Catrin Fitzalen is still reeling from the death of her father and then in a matter of hours, her brother as well. Who is the murderer? Rumors abound and the information leads to only one man – the King’s own champion, Bran ap Madog. Seeking the truth, Catrin sets out for home only to be accosted and left for dead by unknown assailants. Escaping to her cousin’s castle, Catrin and her cousin devise a plan - and it includes Catrin marrying Lord Raven. The fact that he thinks she is her cousin makes the marriage easier to bear until the unthinkable happens. Catrin falls in love with her husband no matter that she thinks he is the one that killed her brother.
A good historical romance is a wonderful thing and in Jan Scarbrough’s case, a well written and beautifully characterized historical romance is one that I will read over and over again. MY LORD RAVEN is such a romance. It captured my attention, held me spellbound, and I was on the edge of my seat for the duration. In my opinion, nothing is better than that!
