BOUND BY DECEPTION…

Captured by a powerful English lord and sentenced to hang for murder, errant Templar Knight Sir Alexander de Ashby has little left in the world to care for, and nothing left to lose. In a last-minute reprieve, his captors offer him an unorthodox chance for survival…a bargain like nothing he had ever fathomed. He must agree to impersonate the Earl of Marston, a Scottish sympathizer who died after years in English custody – a man to whom Alex bears an uncanny resemblance. Only by infiltrating Marston’s border castle and spying for the English, will Alex gain his freedom. But first he must convince the people that he is their master returned…and the earl’s beautiful Scottish bride that his rightful place is in her bed.

Little does she know that the handsome imposter intends to vanish once his mission is complete. And yet escape may prove impossible for him, even after his secret is revealed, for now it is Alexander who has been bewitched by this proud, remarkable lady…until he desires nothing more than to live—and die if he must—to protect and cherish her in return. For she has become his reason to survive, her glorious love sustaining and helping him redeem the sins of a lifetime, as he surrenders himself heart and soul to her in…

Why The Templars’ Seduction ?

I just adore a Templar romance, and Mary Reed McCall writes them the best!! I had so much fun with this book when I read it a few years back. It has some great dynamics in the plot and in the romance that just seem to flow so sweetly together. There is only 150 ratings and 18 reviews on Goodreads and I felt like this book NEEDS a shout out of love. 🙂
