From across a field of battle, English knight, Alexander, Lord Hardwyck, spots the object of his desire—and his conquest, Scottish traitor Lady Chloe. Her lies could be her undoing… Abandoned across the border and disguised for her safety, Chloe realizes the man who besieged her home in Scotland has now become her savior in England. Her life in danger, she vows to keep her identity secret, lest she suffer his wrath, for he wants her dead. Or love could claim them both and unravel two countries in the process… Alexander suspects Chloe is not who she says she is and has declared war on the angelic vixen who's laid claim to his heart. A fierce battle of the minds it will be, for once the truth is revealed they will both have to choose between love and duty.GoodReads
The story of Alexander and Chloe is a sweet classic romance. A valiant knight doing his duty, a beautiful lady in need of rescue and all of it taking place in a scenic countryside.
Alexander is just the kind of man you would want to be forced to marry. Despite being less than enthusiastic about the idea of marrying, once he sees Chloe he starts to lose his heart.
Chloe is a proper lady suddenly finding her self-needing to become a very good liar. Afraid for her life she refuses to give into Alexander’s prying and keeps her secrets. As a proper lady though she hasn’t had much practice at lying and is not very skilled at it. Once the truth comes out hearts are laid bare, along with some other more physical things.
Not much for surprises or plot twists, and it got a little long about ¾ of the way through (but then Knight steams up the pages and then poof your finished with the book!). An enjoyable light read, if you like a classic historical romance this book is for you.
