Don’t put him on a pedestal.
White Lion’s Lady.
By Lara Adrian, writing as Tina St.John.
This is a historical romance, that is the reason it is in the author’s other pen name.
When a young Isabel is chasing a butterfly she is saved from a wild boar by Griffin. He is the foundling foster son of the Earl of Droghallow. Isabel’s young heart is captured by the brave, handsome youth.
Many years later they meet again under very different circumstances. The person she has revered as the personification of everything honourable is now a kidnapper.
Griffin has done some very bad things in service to his Lord, but he is reaching his limit.
I will not spoil the story for you by saying too much more. There is a dangerous journey, and of course sexual tension. Also a very surprising detail about the beliefs surrounding twins in that era.
Well written and entertaining read.
