Beyond Temptation: The Templar Knightsby Mary Reed Mccall
Synopses & Reviews
From the wonderfully evocative and talented Mary Reed McCall comes the first novel of an exciting new trilogy based on the mysterious and fascinating Knights of Templar.
Sir Richard de Cantor, a highly-skilled warrior, is hampered by guilt over the ambitious, materialistic way he'd lived before he joined the Templar Brotherhood — a lifestyle he believes led to the death of his young daughter. Lady Margaret Newcomb is a disgraced daughter of a powerful English earl and has led a quiet life of penance and atonement. Though of different backgrounds, in truth they are both lonely, battered by the world, and in desperate need of each other's love and acceptance. Their fragile relationship is soon threatened when the French Inquisition makes its way to England, and Richard is faced with charges for his position as a Templar Knight, only to have their love further tested when someone from Meg's past reappears with the power to tear the two apart.
Beyond duty ...
A proud yet haunted warrior, Sir Richard de Cantor left his past behind when he joined the secret brotherhood of Templar Knights. Now he is returning home to face a challenge greater than any he has ever known: a forbidden promise of ecstasy that dwells in the gentle heart of a fallen noblewoman.
Beyond desire ...
Lady Margaret Newcomb has paid dearly for her sins of long ago, her good name stripped away as she was forced into seclusion. Yet such torment is nothing compared to what she suffers when Richard de Cantor enters her world of penance. Here is a man, brave and strong yet tender, whose breathtaking masculinity tempts her to sin once more. To want him is dangerous and taboo. But to deny her passion is to deny life itself and the one chance for a love beyond limits, beyond rapture ...
