Hello and welcome!
Today I have somebody who I met recently and at first I didn’t know what to think of him, but then… *sigh*… I fell in love.
Please welcome the castellan.
What is your full name?
Sir Nicholas Beringar, castellan of Ravenmoor Castle.
Do you have a nickname?
What is one word best describes you?
Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I’m wearing full gear as I’m out riding on the borders as there has been an increase in reiving on my land.
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I believe she did an excellent job of showing the care and concern I have for those whom I protect.
What makes you laugh out loud?
A good joke.
What is your favourite dessert?
I love fresh strawberries.
What is your favourite drink?
A tankard of ale.
What is your greatest fear?
My greatest fear is that I will fail to protect those whom I am sworn to protect.
What is your favourite colour?
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
What is the perfect romantic date?
A bottle of wine, a basket of fresh strawberries to feed whom I am with, and to spend time alone with that person on a secluded beach.
How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
A little ticklish.
What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I love the smell of pine. It reminds me of my time growing up spent with my brother in the woods.
When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Do you have somebody in your life now?
At the beginning of my story, no. I have no time for a woman in my life with a new castle to rebuild as well as reivers to quell.

As the new castellan, Sir Nicholas Beringar has the daunting task of rebuilding Ravenmoor Castle on the Scottish border and gaining the trust of the locals—one of whom wastes no time in trying to rob him. Instead of punishing the boy, Nicholas decides to make him his squire. Little does he know the thieving young lad is really…a lady.
Lady Elizabet Armstrong had donned a disguise in an attempt to free her brother from Ravenmoor’s dungeons. Although intimidated by the confident Englishman with his well-honed muscles and beguiling eyes, she cannot refuse his offer.
Nicholas senses that his new squire is not what he seems. His gentle attempts to break through the boy’s defenses leave Elizabet powerless to stem the desire that engulfs her. And when the truth is exposed, she’ll have to trust in Nicholas’s honor to help her people—and to surrender to his touch…

Here is my review: “Wow! My heart is still galloping, the story is so intense. Love Nicholas, he is a fair, honourable man, charged by his King to put right the wrongs done by his predecessor. Except Elizabet turns his world upside down, in more ways than one and then she steals his heart. Loved how the story unfolds, the unexpected twists, the chemistry between Nicholas and Elizabet. You got to read this book!!! I am looking forward to the next one.” 5 stars
