Below you’ll find a snippet from Barbara’s, The Lady of the Forest .

If only Kate had managed to finish treating Henry’s wounds. “I suppose the lord didn’t listen to our prisoner?” Her voice carried brisk tension.

“Maude says not. But he must’a known ole Mort’d pay him no mind. Why’d he do it?”

Why indeed? Kate rose to pace the packed surface of the dirt floor. He might be hurt even worse, left to the vicious attentions of Sir Mortimer. If Henry had arrived at Stonehill looking as formidable as he had when she downed him, no one could have denied his claim. In her determination to keep her people safe, she may have endangered them more. Certainly Henry suffered the consequences.


When her elderly husband dies, Lady Katherine fakes her own death and disappears into the forest with others escaping the brutish new lord. Determined to protect her people, she knocks the wrong man senseless. But Lord Henry isn’t an enemy, he’s the brother of her childhood friend. Although his tender confidence tempts her, she’s bound by duty.

Henry of Chauvere has found the one lady he wants for his own, never mind she’s tied him hand and foot. When he learns the king has ordered her to wed Stonehill’s ruthless new master, he insists Kate seek haven with his sister. But she won’t desert her friends. Henry vows to solve her problem, provided he catches a traitor before the threat from Kate’s past catches her.

When a daring rescue compels Henry and Kate to join forces, their attraction grows into love. If only duty didn’t drive them apart.
