Bid by King Edward to marry one of his knights, Aisley de Laci hopes to
avoid the altar by choosing Baron Montmorency. 'Tis a union she is
certain none will endorse, especially the baron, who is rumored to
practice the dark arts from his isolated keep.
Renowned in battle, the Red Knight has secluded himself at Dunmurrow for reasons of his own. And he does not want a wife, no matter how wealthy and beautiful she might be. But even he cannot defy the king's order, and what comes to him, he takes—and holds.
Although Aisley refuses to believe the tales that make Montmorency more
myth than mortal, she begins to wonder whether he does possess
mysterious powers. How else to explain her own growing feelings for her
husband, a man so shrouded in shadow she has never seen his face?
Was she under a spell or truly the Devil’s Lady?

Historical Mystery and Romance
If you enjoy reading historical novels this is a must read. Deborah Simmons combines mystery, courage, and romance to pull together a great book.
This was the first time reading a book from this author and she
did not disappoint. I couldn’t stop reading it and hated to see the end, I wanted it to keep going. So much mystery.
What a great book. Feel in love with Pier and Ainsley. You will not want to put down.
