About the Book
Strong and adventurous Gwendolyn Barnes longs to be a knight like her chivalrous brothers. However, that is not an option for her, not even in the Arthurian-inspired Eden where she dwells. Her parents view her only as a marriage pawn, and her domineering father is determined to see her wed to a brutish man who will break her spirit.
When handsome, good-hearted Allen of Ellsworth arrives in Edendale searching for his place in the world, Gwendolyn spies in him the sort of fellow she could imagine marrying. Yet fate seems determined to keep them apart. Tournaments, intrigue, and battles--along with twists and turns aplenty--await these two as they struggle to find love, identity, and their true destinies.
About the Author
Dina Sleiman writes stories of passion and grace. Most of the time you will find this Virginia Beach resident reading, biking, dancing, or hanging out with her husband and three children, preferably at the oceanfront. Check out her novels Dance from Deep Within, Dance of the Dandelion, and Love in Three-Quarter Time, and look for her Valiant Hearts adventure/romance books, Dauntless and Chivalrous, with Bethany House Publishers
Dina L. Sleiman has once again written an exciting young adult novel. Full of adventure and unexpected romance, this novel will capture readers’ attention from page one. With excellently well-developed characters that readers will become attached to along with an engaging and thrilling storyline, readers will love this new installment of the Valiant Heart Series. Originally an adult writer, Dina adapted well to writing young adult fiction, crafting a story that readers will most thoroughly enjoy. I would recommend this novel to readers that adored book one in the series, Dauntless, as well as enjoy teen fiction with adventure and romance.
