Perfect period detail and rapturously romantic from one of the best known and beloved romantic novelists.

Even as a fourteen-year-old orphan, Simon Beauvallet knows his own mind. Later, friend and foe alike will know better than to cross the flaxen-haired mountain of a man whose exploits in battle have earned him knighthood, lands and gilded armour.

After Agincourt, he has no equal save the king himself in generalship - until his legendary prowess is baulked by a woman. In Normandy, the icy rage of Simon the Coldheart must melt - or quench Lady Margaret, spitfire of Belremy.

Older style Heyer from 1925–an adventure all the way, with a romantic arc in the second part only. The narrator did an excellent job bringing to life the thees and thous, and Heyer has some of her most stirring, high romantic dialog between two sets of lovers of all her works. The style wouldn’t work in Regency England, but from a knight to his lady, it is excellent. Highly recommend. Also, for fans of Beauvallet, this is the origin story of Nicholas’ noble house.
