KNIGHT OF THE CAPTIVE HEART
Rating: 5 Cups
Rowan du Veau, Dark Knight of Normandy, seeks one thing in life. He wishes to
become a wealthy knight, owning land and a home and to win the hand of Lady Diantha,
his pledged love. To do this, he must continue to enter tournaments to gain enough
wealth to ask her father to betroth her to him. When the Earl of Gladsbury agrees to give
him land with the condition he marry his only daughter, Christiana, he will not hear of it.
He does not desire Christiana, because she is a young girl who wishes to dress as a
When Lady Christiana learns that her father wishes her to marry Sir Guy, she is against
it. Sir Guy may be a good knight, but he is full of greed, she does not like the way his
eyes rake her body, nor the lewd comments he breathes in her ear. She will not hear of
it. She has no desire to wear women’s clothing or marry a man, now or ever. That is,
until she discovers her father has promised her to Rowan and she begins to experience
sensations in her body that she has never felt before.
This is truly a captivating book. I found it hard to put down once I started reading it. The
hero and heroine were very likeable. The secondary characters in the book made it
interesting with so many twists and turns that shaped and formed such a desirable
tension between Christiana and Rowan, I did not want it to end. Christiana became
flustered when her father said to her, ‘you’re just a woman,’ I cheered with her reply to
him. When Rowan finally uncovered her identity under the boy’s clothing she wore, my
heart leaped for joy with his reaction. This is the first book that I have ever read by
Carolina Valdez and it will not be my last. This book is most definitely a keeper.
