Lady Betrayed by Tamarra Leigh

My review today is on the Medieval Romance, Lady Betrayed. I've been waiting for this one to come out. I really enjoy medieval romances, although I'm very happy I didn't have to live back there. This book was well worth the wait; it is well written, heartbreaking, and full of drama. Faith was interwoven throughout the story as a tapestry. You are going to love this book.
Gabriel was the first son of the Baron of Wyverly but he is called into his father's presence to be told he and his oldest brother are not sired by their father, a whoreson, as such Gabriel would not be the heir. Heartbroken he leaves his home and continues his training. Now years later he is invited to tourney with a man who was once his best friend. Both of them had been involved with the Crusades, both were captured and held until the king rescued them but his friend was wounded and blamed Gabriel for all that had happened to him. He now seeks revenge. When he arrives at the tournament he finds the woman he once cared about but she has become cold and seems to blames him for the man her husband has become, believing Gabriel to be a coward. Has she become a whore as his own mother was?
Lady Juliana is married to Baron Bernart of Tremoral. He was unable to consummate his marriage and has made her life a life of abuse but now he is demanding she gives him a son. He has planned for her to steal a son from his enemy Sir Gabriel. When she refuses to sneak into his room and seduce him, her husband uses her blind sister, Alaiz to blackmail her. Bernart is to get him drunk and she is to go to him in the dark and keep her identity from him. Juliana is able to go to him the first night and keep her secret but the second night he is waiting for her. He takes measures to keep the girl she believes her to be from getting her pregnant the second time but soon realizes who he has been with. Juliana conceives and when Gabriel hears of it he steals her away.
A tale of hatred, revenge, and betrayal with an innocent Juliana in the midst. God has a plan for these two; a plan for good and not for evil, a hope and a future. God has a plan for you too. You might not be fighting knights and weapons but we do have an enemy and God has already fought this battle and won it for us, trust Him and give Him your heart and He will turn your life around.
