Lady Alice approached the fearsome Warrior who had swept into Lingwood Manor like a storm. Dark and forbidding, with hair as black as midnight and eyes of molten amber, Hugh the Relentless seemed aptly named. Yet to Alice, adept at driving off suitors and handling her insufferable relatives, Sir Hugh was not someone to dread, but the answer to her dreams. He had come for the mysterious green crystal, and would be greatly displeased to learn that it was no longer in her possession. But Alice was certain Sir Hugh could be coaxed into a deal that would benefit them both. In return for a dowry large enough to free Alice and her brother from the grasp of their conniving uncle, she would lend her powers of detection to Sir Hugh's knightly skills and together they would recover his treasured stone.

With a tongue as sharp as a dagger, the flame-haired Alice filled Hugh with fury...and a growing fascination. He accepted her terms, with one alteration: Alice must agree to a temporary betrothal and spend the winter in Hugh's great stone fortress, Scarcliffe Keep.The bargain is struck and the adventure begins. But Sir Hugh's lifelong enemy is plotting against them, stirring up a whirlwind of treachery that threatens their fragile alliance. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 2/13/2014

    " More historical than the other books by her, somewhat reminiscent of Lisa Jackson's historical romances. A very good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 2/9/2014

    " Amanda Quick goes Medieval for this one. Not bad, but not one of my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kayla Holthe | 2/8/2014

    " Entertaining read. Enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 2/5/2014

    " This was an historical from feudal England--the time of Crusades and Knights and so forth. A very entertaining tale of an extremely self-reliant woman who meets her match when she attempts to strike a bargain with a relentless knight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 2/1/2014

    " My favorite Amanda Quick (Jayne Ann Krentz), this book gets read frequently and has for years. Alice and Hugh are becoming old friends. My heart seems to lift each time I start this book again. I truly love it. Alice matching wits with Hugh while Hugh manipulates Alice into doing what he wants never seems to get old, and there is a sense of satisfaction at the end that I rarely find in other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathi Sharp | 1/25/2014

    " Set in medieval times. Different. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 1/20/2014

    " Good romance - quick read - typical Amanda Quick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosanne - Books Are Better Than Pants | 1/17/2014

    " God, I love you Amanda Quick. If there is someone who knows how to write proper romance heroines, it's her :D "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mickey | 12/14/2013

    " This is one of the first few Amanda Quick books I read, and like those she wrote at the start (Mischief, Deception, Witness, With This Ring etc.) I enjoyed them all and recommend them all! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynde mitchell | 12/12/2013

    " I love all Amanda Quick's novels but this is my favorite.I've read it numerous times as well as all her others "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Summer | 11/9/2013

    " It's kind of weird how Amanda Quick's novels are so hit and miss with me. Unfortunately this book was a miss. While I like the idea of medieval romances, there's been very few of them I've actually enjoyed. Even romanticized that period of history is hard to read about. Oh well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elisa | 10/15/2013

    " I like the character Alice - she's strong and spicy. The girl's got guts! Funny moments in the story, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karin Shah | 10/11/2013

    " Actually this is a re-read. :-) Which kinda says it all doesn't it? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eloise Tucker | 7/31/2013

    " I found the language use to be quite repetative, and it did not always flow. I get irritated when books are not well written! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 3/7/2013

    " Such a fun, light, romantic read. Loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chasidy | 2/6/2013

    " Who would have though a knight with the name of Hugh the Relentless would turn out to be exactly the kind of knight to be the one in shining armor for Alice. Beyond the paperwork between the two, they formed a bond that went beyond the temporary bethrotel of T's being crossed and I's being dotted. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 1/2/2013

    " one of my favs...I've just re-read this again for the fifth time...it's like watching an old movie...very cute. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme | 7/16/2012

    " I used to love all these highly romantic stories of White Knights saving the damsel in distress. Ms. Quick writes such lovely ones with great plots and likeable characters. Before I read smut, these were so sexy to me. Hugh is an alpha male who is dreamy. Mine kind of Knight when I was a young girl. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy anderson | 3/19/2012

    " good, quick, fun read. Did have to do a little bit of skimming, if things got too hot, but still had fun reading this "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tammy | 11/15/2011

    " Fun light read. I enjoy her books, they are a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. The characters are always kind of the same, but I still like them and the books make me laugh with the way they court each other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kit | 10/14/2011

    " This is the first book I've read of Amanda Quick's. I found it totally engrossing, fast paced with well written characters. Hugh and Alice are interesting and endearing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jage | 9/29/2011

    " quick read about 2.5 stars, not one of my favourites by her but I'm not entirely sure why as the plot was interesting enough. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janalynn | 9/14/2011

    " Romance. Easily forgotten. "
