The Truest Heart
Did fate send her a villain with the blackest soul...or a lover withThe Truest HeartHer name is her only crime, yet Lady Gillian must take refuge in a humble cottage on the on the stormy Cornish coast, hiding from a king who seeks her death for her father's treason.Now destiny has sent Gillian a cure for her loneliness: a handsome shipwrecked stranger washed ashore on a perilous tide who requires a kind lady's gentle touch to heal his broken body and tormented spirit.His own name -- Gareth -- is all that he remembers. Yet he knows he has found paradise in the company of an exquisite beauty whose caress is sweet rapture and whose smile warms his soul. But as his memories slowly return, so does the dark task entrusted to him by King John. If he fails, a young boy will surely perish. Yet how can he betray Gillian, whose passionate love has lit a blaze in Gareth's heart that no vengeful king's decree could ever extinguish?From Publishers WeeklyLady Gillian is a hunted woman. After her father's failed attempt on King John's life, provoked by the monarch's refusal to abide by the Magna Carta, the vengeful king sends Gareth, lord of Sommerfield, to find and kill her. A shipwreck tosses Gareth, wounded and missing his memory, at Gillian's hiding place in Cornwall. She devotes herself to his care but can't help her suspicions of, and her tender feelings for, this mysterious man. Gareth recovers enough of his memory to recall that Gillian is in deadly danger and flees with her to Sommerfield, only to realize with horror that he is the danger she must avoid. To save her from the king's revenge, Gareth quickly marries her, claiming she carries his child a claim they must substantiate or suffer the fatal consequences of deceit. With Gillian's nearly constant bitterness and mistrust toward her new husband despite all the risks he takes on her behalf, it's a surprise that Gareth falls in love with her at all; their compatibility seems restricted to the bedroom. But James (His Wicked Promise, etc.) adds nice touches, such as Gillian's anxiety about not measuring up to Gareth's first wife, and she gracefully depicts Gareth and Gillian's struggles against the backdrop of King John's tumultuous reign to shape a romance with unusual historical depth.Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.Review"No one can write a book quite like Samantha James."-- Catherine Anderson"A remarkable writer."-- Lisa KleypasAbout the AuthorIt was Samantha James's love of reading as a child that steered her toward a writing career. Among her favorites in those days were the Trixie Belden and Cherry Ames series of books. She still loves a blend of mystery and romance, and, of course, a happily-ever-after ending. The award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of many romances and one novella, her books have ranged from medieval to Regency.
