Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Three Graces of Graydon are well–born sisters bearing an ominous curse: any man betrothed to them without love is doomed to die.

Much to her chagrin, Lady Isabel Milton has been given to Earl Rand Braesford—a reward from the Tudor king for his loyalty to the throne. The lusty nobleman quickly claims his husbandly rights, an experience Isabel scarcely hoped to enjoy so much. But youth and strength may not save Braesford from his bride's infamous curse…

Accused of a heinous crime with implications that reach all the way to King Henry himself, Braesford is imprisoned in the Tower, and Isabel is offered her salvation—but for a price. She has the power to seal his fate, have him sent to the executioner and be freed from her marriage bonds. Yet the more Isabel learns of Rand, the less convinced she is of his guilt, and she commits to discover the truth about the enigmatic husband she never expected to love.

Review:

"Prolific author Blake (Fierce Eden) launches the Three Graces trilogy with an enjoyable Tudor-era romance. Lady Isabel Milton and her sisters are the Three Graces of Graydon, said to bear a curse that dooms any man betrothed to them without love. After the deaths of four suitors, Isabel manages to avoid any further betrothals until King Henry VII promises her to Sir Rand Braesford. When Rand is arrested and charged with murder, Isabel sees a chance to be free of him, but the more she learns about him, the more she doubts that he could commit such a heinous crime. Can the curse be defeated? Blake's flamboyant prose immerses readers in the period, with likable characters and a well-constructed plot. Though Isabel and Rand are flaw-free and polished to a high gloss, readers will enjoy watching them find their footing and become a team. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
