In 1333, King Edward assigns a difficult task to one of his most trusted warriors. Holden de Ware must forge an alliance with the Scottish border clan Gavin. Holden and Angus Gavin work out an agreement, but a jealous lieutenant Sir Roger Fitzroi thinks otherwise and murders a stunned Angus. This devilish act leaves his daughter Cambria as chieftain.
Cambria hates Holden for his betrayal of the pact with her father and wants him dead in an eye for an eye belief that he killed her beloved sire. Cambria, a remarkable swordswoman, vows vengeance, but Holden tries his best to stop her from arousing more ire and spilling unnecessary blood. Though she detests him, Cambria and Holden fall in love, but treachery still lingers as Roger plans to eliminate what he perceives as his obstacle for Edward's blessing, de Ware.
MY WARRIOR, the latest de Ware tale (see MY CHAMPION), is an exciting medieval romance starring two enticing lead charcaters. Though the story line adheres strictly to the typical sub-genre basic theme, fans will enjoy this novel because Holden and Cambria are a delightful duo struggling with betrayal, mistrust, and love. Glynnis Campbell entertains her audience with this exciting fourteenth century novel.
