When Garron of Kersey returns home from the king's service to claim his title as Baron Wareham, he's shocked to find Wareham Castle very nearly destroyed by a man called the Black Demon.

According to the last starving servants inside the castle walls, the Black Demon was looking for silver belonging to Garron's brother Arthur. Among his remaining servants is the enigmatic Merry, the bastard child of the castle's priest. Garron quickly suspects that she is much more than a servant: She reads and writes and makes lists, just as he does. They work together to bring Wareham back to its former splendor.

But this is only the beginning. Did Arthur have a cache of silver? Who is the Black Demon? And the biggest question of all: Who is Merry?

    " Horrible reader, even Bea commented on how bad the voice was. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kimberly | 2/14/2014

    " Words can not describe how disappointed I was by this book. I'm usually a big fan of Catherine Coulter's work, bother her historical & contemporary books. However, this story was long, slow & boring. I liked the heroine, but didn't care for the hero. Even when writing a historical book, the author must remember the readers have modern sensibilities. I can't like a hero who voluntarily engages in torture. In the last 150 pages of the book the story suddenly changed from a historical romance to a fantasy. The storyline moved into the unbelieveable. I just couldn't buy into it. I also found the romance in the story to be a minor point, with almost no emotion at all. Hope the next book is better. "

    " Not what I thought it would be. I was expecting a little more history. It wasn't bad, quick easy read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lori | 2/2/2014

    " Got through it but didn't like it much. I don't think I'm into the medieval romance novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 1/28/2014

    " Despite negative reviews I really enjoyed reading this book it was interesting and a delightfully easy read. I enjoyed books from this era though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mercedes | 1/23/2014

    " I am only giving this 2 stars although I am actually a big fan of Catherine Coulter's. Really bad writing at work here and th plot was the most simplistic ever. All that said it still was somewhat satisfying to read because I haven't seen anything new from her in a while except for the thrillers, which I am not interested in at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 1/20/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara Post | 1/13/2014

    " This was fine -- a typical medieval romance. Not as good as the FBI series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette | 1/11/2014

    " This one kept me coming back over and over, hard to put down. I had to keep it in hand last night until I got it done. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathi | 1/4/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Faye | 1/2/2014

    " Fun read. Good girl gets good guy, mixed with some witchcraft. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris | 12/3/2013

    " This story of a medieval Lord and Lady is not up to Catherine Coulter's usual standards of writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerry Khoo | 11/23/2013

    " A bit of a drag for me "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison | 6/10/2013

    " Not one of her better novels. A little formulaic and parts strained belief. A good, quick, read for the beach maybe. Especially if you got it for free. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Donna | 1/27/2013

    " Couldn't get into this book, never finished it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 1/4/2013

    " This book was... eh. Started out ok, then fizzled at the end. Wasn't even great by romance book standards, in my opinion. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robin | 11/29/2012

    " Would give it 1.5 stars. Silly really. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lewi Gilamichael | 11/14/2012

    " it is silly and has a plot, an easy read. But the characters lack depth and believability. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily Boivin | 9/28/2012

    " ok book, very grafic sex in some places. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalie Barnard | 3/30/2012

    " I think I have read every one of her books - for some reason I just really like this author!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheilad37 | 11/9/2011

    " I liked this book, it was cute. I think the "Witch" was dragged a little to long. I skimmed the last half of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tatrd | 6/27/2011

    " Eh. Never finished it and didn't wonder what happened. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alyssa | 5/23/2011

    " This was ok. A good Sunday afternoon read and I actually didn't guess the ending which I guess is a pretty good feat. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Larissa | 5/2/2011

    " I've read much better Catherine Coulter books and this one didn't stand out at all. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joann | 4/21/2011

    " So, never having read a Catherine Coulter book I felt it was my duty as a good librarian to at least try some popular fiction writers, and see what they offer. This was a disappointment--cliches, formulaic, predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 4/6/2011

    " I didn't realize this was part of a series. I enjoyed the book and was engaged throughout the book. I will definitely have to check out what other books were written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridget | 4/4/2011

    " A fun, frivolous last spring break read. "
