Falcon of Gaveston is anxiously returning home to his
betrothed, an heiress who will bring him the wealth and
land for which he yearns. As a third, landless son, Falcon
has to find a way to obtain a piece of England to call his
own. But Falcon doesn't make it home. He's attacked and
brutally beaten by a band of brigands and left for dead.
Found unconscious and without memory, he's brought to
Mildenhall Castle. Mariah and her aging, ailing husband,
Sir Edmond, think it's a miracle. This young, virile,
handsome knight must have been sent by God.
Mariah is a wife, not yet a widow, and the plan her dying
husband urges upon her might leave him an heir. However,
she would have to sacrifice her sacred vows. His words
haunt her: "Take a lover and give me a son."
Since Falcon lives his life by a knight's code of honor and
would never pursue a married woman, Mariah tells him she's
a widow. It isn't long before his memory returns, and
Falcon leaves Mildenhall Castle to be wed. He doesn't know
that he leaves behind a woman carrying his child.
Circumstances become complicated and five years later, King
Henry sends Falcon (who never married his wealthy heiress)
back to Mildenhall Castle to investigate a problem that's
arisen there. It seems Sir Edmond had a wife and that wife
bore him a son before his death. The legitimacy of this
child is in question, and therefore, so is his rightful
place as heir. Falcon is dumbfounded. There are too many
unanswered questions, too many feelings that have to be
dealt with and too many untruths that need to be
straightened out. The most important thing to Falcon is A
This latest, delightful tale by Connie Mason is a
story of love lost and love found, of strength and honor,
of passion and honesty. Even amongst deceit, love conquers
all. A great tale. Don't miss it.
He is a miracle sent by God to save her. That is what
Mariahâ€™s aged and ailing husband calls the mysterious
knight who was brought unconscious to their doorstep. She
has to agree that he is a maidenâ€™s dream, but she is no
maiden. She is a wife, soon to be a widow, and though the
course of action her dying husband urged upon her may leave
him with an heir, it will lead her into terrible temptation.
When he opens his eyes upon the golden-haired woman
attending his sickbed, Falcon thinks her an angel. He may
have no recollection of his past, but he senses that he
knows well how to please a woman. Little does he guess that
the seduction he is contemplating will take him to
paradise, yet put at riskâ€”A KNIGHT'S HONOR.
