"What madness had bedeviled her, causing her to act with such haste?" Years have passed since the passionate love shared by Darius of Faucon and Marguerite, now Lady of Thornson. Surviving a lost love and bowing to historical necessity, Marguerite has married and learned to love Henry, Lord of Thornson. Darius has had a less peaceful journey and is still trying to prove his loyalty to his lord. Now he discovers with Henry's death, it will be Darius' mission to protect the Lady of Thornson until an appropriate husband with the right allegiance to King Stephen and Queen Maud.

It sounds like a simple story but in reality it's a far cry from that, since Darius and Marguerite both recognize the renewal of their fiery passion but have secrets that each protects with fierce determination. That focus causes innumerable scenes of misunderstanding, mistrust, and accusations that threaten any possibility of fulfillment of their love!

Falcon's Love is even better than Denise Lynn's Falcon's Honor, complex in its adult world of conflict between Kings and loyal servants, responsibilities that could be the extension or undoing of kingdoms, and years of forged unions and relationships that must take precedence over youthful, passionate feelings!

What and who will prevail?

The tensions mount and disaster seems to be looming for both central characters!

Other characters are plotting as well but for the opposing King David. Smuggling and battles, attempted escapes, truth, and lies abound in a tense, driven plot that never lags and rivets the reader to fly through this exciting, romantic tale!

Great read!
