Publisher’s Description:

Passion ignites and the sparks fly when a border lord and a noblewoman skilled at the forge are brought together under unusual circumstances.

Lady Winter has always been curious since childhood and even though she is a noblewoman, she has learned from the best blacksmith to be skilled at the forge. While at her sister’s wedding in Ravenscar, she decides to stay and help the blacksmith who trained her. His eyesight is failing and although he was once the best blacksmith in all England, now he is doomed without Winter’s help. The late lord Ravenscar made a deal with Sir Martin de Grey of Northumberland. The blacksmith is to forge a sword from the finest Damascus steel, but to insure that Lord de Grey gets it, he’s taken the man’s son in exchange.

Sir Martin de Grey arrives in Ravenscar to collect his sword. He needs it to go up against his enemy – Clan Dunbar in an age-old feud. Martin’s brother is imprisoned and he will do anything to save him. But when he discovers his sword is not ready and the man he made the deal with is dead, he takes drastic measures. He brings the blacksmith and his daughter to Castle Heaton to finish forging the sword. While there, he finds himself immensely attracted to the beautiful commoner’s daughter.

Winter finds herself in a predicament. Sir Martin de Grey has mistaken her for the blacksmith’s daughter since she was working in the forge. Now, to tell him the truth would risk her friend never seeing his son again.

Sparks will fly when the truth is revealed and circumstances turn lovers against each other. But with passion hotter than the fires of the forge between Winter and Martin, can something that started as lust turn into an undying love between them?

(This is the last book of the series. It is best to read the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series, as well as books 1-3 of the Seasons of Fortitude Series first, however, each book stands alone.)

My Thoughts:

This is the final book in this series.
It is not, in this reader’s opinion the best one, though it is good.

Winter enjoys helping out the blacksmith who is loosing his eyesight.
When she discovers his problem she decides she will craft the sword that is the price asked by Sir Martin de Grey for the return of the smithy’s son.

Sir Martin de Grey wants this sword to vanquish his enemy and bring his brother back from captivity by the neighboring Scottish Laird.

Mistaken for the daughter of the blacksmith because she is helping in the forge Winter finds herself traveling to Sir Martin’s castle along with only the blacksmith and Nairnie , the healer as chaperone.

Due to the blacksmith’s eyesight she must find a way to craft the sword herself without Martin’s knowledge.

How will this convoluted story end? Will Winter continue to fool Martin with her deception?

I gave this book 3.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames. The intimacy is very hot and equally well written although I found the characters somewhat lacking in this particular book.

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the author to read for review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book or the series which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Rapunzel de Bar is one of seven siblings that has been cursed by the evil witch, Hecuba. She has been kidnapped by the old woman and kept in a tower that has one window and no doors. When she tires of waiting for her brothers to rescue her, Rapunzel decides to escape on her own.

One stormy night when the witch is away, Rapunzel uses her braid to lower herself out the tower window. She cuts her braid and falls atop a rider passing by below.

Sir Marcos Drago is on the tail of a man he’s been hunting down for months when a woman drops from the sky and knocks him off his horse. She is beautiful, but he is furious that now he’s lost his bounty as well as his steed. Marcos is the only son and one of the last dragonlords to walk the land, but no one believes in him – not even himself. He has lost everything in the past few years. His castle has been demolished and his father is a prisoner of his fiercest enemy, having a large ransom on his head. If Marcos can’t find a way to collect the money, his father will die.

When Rapunzel’s brothers hire Marcos to track down and bring home their sister, he thinks he has found the answer to all his troubles. But when a feisty, beautiful woman and magic are involved, nothing goes as planned.

Love knows no bounds, and sometimes a prison is not physical . . . but self-made.
