Simon the Coldheart Paperback

Later, friend and foe alike will know better than to cross the flaxen-haired mountain of a man whose exploits in battle have earned him knighthood, lands and gilded armour.
After Agincourt, he has no equal save the king himself in generalship - until his legendary prowess is baulked by a woman.
In Normandy, the icy rage of "Simon the Coldheart" must melt - or quench Lady Margaret, spitfire of Belremy.

Review by cathymoore
This was just lovely. Set at the turn of the 15th century, it tells the story of Simon of Beauvallet and how he goes from a simple squire to a fearsome lord and general, all the time maintaining his cold-hearted demeanour. That is until he lays seige to the town of Belremy in Normandy and the indomitable Lady Margaret. The story rattles along at a fair pace and all the characters are well-rounded and thought out. I enjoyed all Heyer's novels as a teenager and it looks like I'm set to get through them all again!
