    Cyprian sends for Gabriella so they can marry, but fails to join the escort party. While Gabriella travels near Devonshire, the Duke of Edgerfield sees her as an instrument of revenge for Cyprian destroying his beloved childhood friend Rebecca. However, Morgan Chalstrey never expected to have his pawn capture his heart as he vowed to never love again.

    MY LADY BELOVED is a pleasurable medieval romance that fans of those historical tales will enjoy. The story line is fun and exciting though it remains inside the sub-genre box. The lead charcaters are intrepid and amusing as they duel with words and love. However, the villain is painted as vile and abusive so that Rebecca never has to face the dilemma of honor vs. love. A Lael by any other name is still a Lael and Lael St. James provides her fans a delightful couple of nights of entertainment.
