Siege of the Heart by Elise Cyr

ImageSiege of the Heart:

He fought for king and country, but that battle was nothing compared to the one he’ll wage for a woman’s heart.

Still reeling from the news of her father’s death during the Norman Conquest, Isabel Dumont is unprepared when trouble arrives at the castle gates. Alexandre d’Évreux, a Norman knight with close ties to England’s new king, has arrived to secure the land and the loyalties of the Dumont family. Desperate to protect her people, Isabel strives to keep the confounding knight at arm’s length and hide the truth about her father’s death.

For Alexandre, the spoils of war come with more than just a generous gift of land. They come with Isabel Dumont. Vowing to marry only for love, Alexandre finds himself in a difficult situation as a conqueror granted dominion over the land and its people. Isabel is the one person capable of helping him win the regard of those living in the war-torn country…if he chooses to accept her.

Just when Alexandre finds a spark of hope that he and Isabel have a chance at love, she vanishes. His quest to find her plunges him deeper into the conquest’s fallout. Was she taken? Or did she leave?

CONTENT WARNING: Entering into this novel may cause extreme affection toward knights of old, admiration for strong-willed women, and the overwhelming belief that love really can conquer all.

Excerpt:

They stood there like hunter and prey, but she would be no man’s quarry.

“I am Alexandre d’Évreux. But you, my dear, can call me Alex. I am here to escort Lord Dumont and his family to London, where he is to greet King William. I chose to ignore your questionable arrival when you were with fever.” He walked toward her with a decided prowl to his gait. “Now, I will wait no longer for answers.”

Isabel lifted her chin. “I have questions of my own.”

“I am sure. But first, Lady Isabel, you will explain to me why Matilde thought it necessary to hide your identity from me.”

“I know not.” Her gaze swept over him once more. “Perhaps she thought your intentions were dishonorable.”

A muscle worked in his jaw. “Matilde is extremely loyal to you, no doubt. I assure you, I am acting under orders from William himself. No harm will come to you or your family, but I expect your cooperation.”

She stiffened. “Am I a prisoner?”

“Non, not unless you refuse to cooperate. I only intend to be your family’s escort to London. How easy or difficult that is will be up to you.”

About Elise Cyr:

I’ve always loved adventure, romance, and happy endings. I write primarily in the medieval period. Because there’s still so much we don’t know about that time in history, the writer’s imagination is essential for fleshing out the research and making it come to life on the page. Plus swords and castles are just plain fun.

I live in New Mexico with my husband and the sweetest dog ever. When I’m not writing, I hike, bike, cook, and (of course) read. You can follow me on Twitter,PinterestGoodreads, or check out my blog

Amazon Review:

“The Tarnished Shooter” by Charles James is a stunning and captivating book.I have read my share of childhood stories (or memoirs of that kind) but this is quite unique with its honest style and very sensible, intelligent and down to earth approach. The family background, abuse and bullying that our fictional anti-hero suffers are never once used as an excuse for the wrong decisions and choices in his life but serve merely as an explanation and helpful illustration of the reality of such a childhood and its possible consequences.

Young Frank moves into a less friendly neighborhood and easily gets drawn in with the wrong people. What starts of as dares and exercises in masculinity become smaller and then increasingly bigger transgressions into illegality.

The 1960s and 1970s are providing an excellent background as the time between youth rebellion with a cause and a last rise of the authoritarian approach to silence opposition. Frank ends up in prison and thanks to the well chosen direct-narrative-style the reader can share his experience of it and his thoughts.

He is thankfully not a victim but a reformed sinner and someone who has learned his lesson and who wants to pass this wisdom on to others, to be a role model. The narrator takes responsibility for his actions and encourages readers to learn from his mistake.

This is written so realistically that it feels like a real memoir and I am not surprised to learn that this is based on a real story.
A very impressive and important book that I cannot recommend highly enough.
