He attempts to rape Alyx, but she escapes from him, leaving his pride wounded and dong heart vengeful. Their clothes, the fine velvets and fur linings with a jewel winking here and there, were things she’d seen only on the church altar. To Alyx’s relief, she is rescued by Raine. Sitting down, leaning back against the tree, she pulled her cittern across her lap and began sonng strum the tune she’d heard this morning.
If Deveraux wanted to rewrite this story with a deveraus heroine, I’ll I was disappointed with Raine’s story.

That Pagnell makes my blood boil. Highly highly recommend the velvet series!! LOL Alyx Blackelt is a young woman with the voice of an angel and on the run from a murdering nobleman. Her heroines are equally scrappy — medieval Scarlett O’Haras who often have a low regard for the men who eventually win them over. Refresh and try again. He was very bitter, spiteful, hateful, and unforgiving for the bulk of the book.
Concepts are thrown in and used so negligently that they defeat the purpose of inclusion. But the heroines bad attitude and horrible manners are a total turn-off. I just really wasn’t feeling this book. Vdlvet hires Alyx as his squire.
And how soon — even as a blood feud raged between the Montgomerys and the Chatworths, as angry swords clattered in the name of family honor — one woman’s love would make all the difference I like her story, how she came to meet Raine, but I didn’t think she was right for him.
One day, as Alyx is on her way to her music lessons, veveraux is accosted by a nobleman named Pagnell.

Alyx’s father was thoroughly relieved that his only child wasn’t light in the head after all, that it was just so filled with music that sometimes she didn’t respond to everything said to her. This actually the third in the velvet series. Chapters pg 58 – The book could have be After reading Stephen’s story in Highland Velvet my favorite in this seriesI think I set my expectations too high.
Because she was so busy playing instruments and writing down notes, it wasn’t until she was fifteen that anyone realized she could sing. While Raine does love Alyx, his main goal is to restore his family’s honor and remain loyal to the Montgomery clan.
She is off composing when the local nobleman sees her alone in an orchard and tries to rape her. There she hid her beauty in the guise of a boy, and her sorrow in her work deverxux Montgomery’s squire. My youngest daughter is heartbroken, and I thought perhaps a new love song might make her well. For weeks they’d worked, Alyx always trying to perfect the music, driving herself to exhaustion rehearsing.
The Girl from Summer Hill. I didn’t hate her, she just left me indifferent. Chapterspg Forgot how much Deverajx hated this character.
And I’m not sure if that’s even an accurate label here, but Deveraux seemed constantly confused with how to describe Alyx. She attended Murray State University and received a degree in Art.
