R striving to redeem his wicked reputation he won't seduce a nun Yet as Celeste's mission draws them closer together it soon becomes clear their passion is stronger than any vo Margaret Moore remains one of my favourite authors of Medieval period historical romance titles although uality does vary This one falls suarely in the middle in terms of preference Our heroine Celeste is a novice who was sent to a convent twelve years ago after breaking the hero's collar bone after he cut off her hair She has yet to take her vows because the mother superior considers her too unruly She returns home to sort out her family property after her sister is brutally murdered by her infatuated bodyguard She re encounters the hero Gerrard who is finally starting to settle down looking after his brother's estate after 12 feckless years of drinking wenching fighting and hanging out with dubious company The pair have to solve the mystery of her sister's murder The killer is dead but did some mastermind put him up to it? As well as escape the clutches of the harsh mother superior come to take Celeste back to the conventOver all I thoroughly enjoyed this one it's a bit like a brother Cadfael story mixed in with historical romance Only thing is the villain is a bit obvious and melodramatic The romance is average nothing particularly wrong you never doubt that these two should be together but it never tugged at my heartstrings and its not as sexy as many other stories of this ilk Still I did really like the plot and the setting and thought this was solid if not one of Moore's best
