Eighteen-year-old widow Eleanor of Strathcombe is stunned to realize she has a powerful attraction to Hugh of Wykeham, the arrogant, neighboring lord returned from the Crusade. But he wants to marry her sister, and when he learns that poachers are running rampant he blames her and feuds with her over the control of their forest boundaries. As she struggles to keep control of her forests and find the poachers, unsettling feelings confront her when she deals with Hugh, feelings she never felt in her brief, loveless marriage -- feelings she tries to fight, because she knows Hugh to be a cold, harsh man who may have murdered his faithless wife in revenge -- and who trusts no woman.  When she finds herself in the midst of a net of intrigue and lies, how will she find the courage to capture the conspirators, save herself and her sister, and overcome her feelings for Hugh?

About Marcie Kremer

See more books from this Author
Growing up in Europe and seeing castles on a daily basis made Marcie Kremer sure she wanted to live back in the Middle Ages. Since that wasn’t likely to happen, being a child of the 20th century, the next best thing she could try to do was to write about this enthralling period in history. Having studied medieval history in college, she loved doing the research about how people really lived and spoke and dreamed and loved, and so Torch in the Forest came to be, thanks to her dear husband, who encouraged her to write about Eleanor and Hugh. When not writing, she's reading, or traveling. She loves hearing from readers and is happy to do book club conference calls!
