Kidnapping a Viscount was probably not the best idea, but Diana had little choice.  Years ago, she was responsible for his villainous brotherís death, and only Thomas Bannaster knew the truth of the situation.  Plagued by suspicions he murdered his brother for years, he must surely be there to expose his brotherís true killer and clear his name.

She was on a mission for the League of the Blade at the time, tasked with stopping the late Viscountís cruelties, but her impulsive actions have put her position as a Bladeswoman on hold for years since.

Now the League has a new mission for her, and it involves the very man she has kidnapped.  Problem is, she finds herself succumbing to Tomís attempts to seduce her Ė something she never anticipated.  How can she keep her objectivity as a Bladeswoman even while she loses her heart to the subject of her investigation?

Once again, Julia Latham more than proves her mettle in the historical romance genre.  With a blend of sexy romance and suspense, she weaves a tale that easily spellbinds readers. 

SECRETS OF THE KNIGHT follows suit in this vein by starring a very strong heroine who bucks the strictures upon her gender and strives to be more than the average historical heroine.  Diana is a very atypical Lady, a far as historical romances go, and more than appeals to modern women.  She is bold, resourceful, and has spent a lifetime training in the physical pursuits normally denied to women of her time.  I found her to be a woman that I could admire, even when she made a few mistakes.  Above all, Diana just wants to do what is right Ė a quality that Tom soon recognizes and endears him to her more than her undeniable physical attributes, despite how their relationship starts off.

Tom himself is a man with a past that haunts him.  Where Diana may have made some mistakes, he has gone far past that.  But he isnít a bad man; he simply made a few unfortunate choices that he is now working on moving past.  Having been raised to enter the priesthood, he didnít learn how to deal in social situations until late in life, making it difficult for him to adapt.  By the time he does learn, however, he becomes a man any woman could lose her heart to, and it is easy to see why Diana falls for him.

For a historical romance that is sexy, sweet, and suspenseful, SECRETS OF THE KNIGHT fits the bill very nicely!
