Lady Keira Liskard is the daughter of the
Earl of Cornwall. She has been kidnapped on the way to
England to be with her father and hidden away in a convent.
She was kidnapped by her sister’s brutal husband Sir Hugh
Noirville. She does not want to be a nun and most definitely
wants her father’s home back and to be married some day.
Sir Philip d’Apremont is the bastard son
of a Greek woman captive and a Norman knight. He is known as
‘the Saracen’ by his enemies whom have blown his reputation
out of proportion. He does not stand for those who harm
others for fun or games. He is given an opportunity by his
friend and liege King Henry II to help get the Cornwall lands
back and marry Liskard’s daughter Keira, if he can find her.
If he can accomplish this not only will he be made the heir of
the Earl but will be awarded the title upon the current Earl’s
Keira and Philip marry the night he finds
her. They are both attracted to each other but don’t want to
appear to be the weak one and hurt by expressing their love.
Keira is also very forthright in her opinions for a woman of
her time, and while Philip needs to listen to some of her
ideas he ignores them all until Keira takes things into her
What an absolutely wonderful medieval
romance. If you like a woman character that didn’t ‘know her
place’ in medieval times than you will love Keira in
Midnight Marriage. I was enthralled with the
characters as well as the overall story line. The author was
fantastic in keeping with times, on subjects such as how much
time would be needed to battle, fighting techniques etc.
Midnight Marriage is wonderful medieval romance set
in the Cornwall area of England. There were some editing
issues with the book that were distracting but I was easily
able to overcome them and be captured by the story.
