This is the last book in the Barons of the Cinque Ports Series.  The series consisted of three books telling the stories of the Barons who served as the overseers of the Cinque Ports for the King of England.  In this book we read the story is about Lord John Montague who made appearances in each of the other two books.

Lord John Montague has a dilemma on his hands. He must marry and produce an heir by order of the King of England.  There is just one problem…he can’t find a bride.  When Lord John was 14 he was married for a day only and the circumstances of that marriage he has kept to himself.  When Lord John travels to France his life is changed in ways he never imagined.

Lady Celestine de Bar never forgot the betrayal of her husband Lord John Montague and how it cost her freedom.  Determined to change the course of her life, she finds Lord John and extracts a promise from him; A promise that Lord John gives with no intention of following through on.

Lord John and Lady Celestine are brought together by the actions of others and as they stand together through lies and betrayals they may find there is more at stake than they thought.  Lady Celestine must forgive Lord John while he must learn to trust her.

Elizabeth Rose has a style of writing that is quick to read and one that catches your attention and holds it.  I enjoy her characters and the historical quality that she uses to bring her stories together.  I also enjoy how she will give at least one of her characters an oddity of sorts that makes her stories entertaining.  While reading this story I was intrigued by the character of Lady Celestine’s cousin Hugh de Bar.  I was happy to read in the author’s closing comments that he does in fact get his own story, The Lady and the Wolf.  I also am hopeful that Claude will get his own story and Lady Celestine’s uncle will make additional appearances.
