For eighteen years, Lord Gilbert has been tortured over a grievous lapse in judgment. Bitterness has tainted his interactions with the people of Moreland and his relationship with his only daughter, Lady Joanna. With a wolfhound guarding her around the clock and no freedom to leave the castle grounds unattended, the only time Lady Joanna can be alone is when she sneaks out through an old castle tunnel to visit the healer Agnes in her cottage by the sea. One morning as Lady Joanna approaches the cliffs, she discovers an injured man. She immediately goes to Agnes for help. The wounded stranger is Sir Lukas, and while he recovers, he makes plans to identify his attackers and their motive. Upon learning that Moreland's wool has been stolen, Sir Lukas comes to believe that the crimes are related and point to a much more sinister plot. When Lord Gilbert announces an archery tournament, the prize being Lady Joanna's hand in marriage, it attracts noblemen from across the land, and suddenly Sir Lukas's pursuit of the villains takes a different turn. As Lady Joanna and Sir Lukas's feelings for each other grow, the stakes soar, and only Sir Lukas's skill with a longbow can save them.

To Win a Lady's Heart by Sian Ann Bessey gives you the best of a medieval story - castles, knights, mystery and romance. To top it off, a little message of self-worth. I really enjoyed this quick read that's filled with twists and turns when it comes to winning Lady Joanna's hand in marriage.  It's never that simple. Our knight might not be who he seems, or will bitterness shatter the growing feelings between our lady and knight? With a brewing plot that might cause more harm than a little thievery in the castle,  Lady Joanna's heart might very well be tangled in that mess. Will her father only see her as an object to be rid of, or will he risk it all for his only daughter?  In all, if you like a little mystery, medieval setting and a romance that doesn't jump but grows, To Win a Lady's Heart is for you.
