Lord Greville's Captive

Lord Greville's Captive/Nicola Cornick/Harlequin Historicals/ ISBN 139780379294275/pb/296pgs

Lady Anne Grafton was taking a terrible risk when she went to the camp of her enemy to plead for her people. Lord Simon Greville was for the Parliament and she was for the King. She knew that he meant to throw the might of his army against Grafton in the morning and if he did many would die.

Lady Anne's only hope is to reveal that his brother Henry is not dead, as he believes, but a prisoner of the King's general Malvoisier. Will Lord Greville believe her? Will the feelings he once had for her save Anne from a man who must now be her enemy?

Nicola Cornick once again produces a vivid story of romance, but this time laced with danger and an underlying hint of menace. An English Civil War story that grips the reader from the start. Another excellent read from this lovely author. It is not surprising that the book has been short listed for the RNA Romance Prize. Award Five red roses. Anne
