Summary
Amazon Bestselling Novel. 2005 IPPY Bronze Medal Winner andNext Generation INDIE Award Finalist.Love proves perilous in this "Pretty Woman/Pride and Prejudice" historical romance tale set in 15th century England.Sold as a slave in Romania for seven pounds and three solidi, the Gypsy girl, Sharai, escapes a slave ship infected with the plague. As an adult, she performs her silky, exotic dances to earn enough to sustain herself and the toddling orphan girl she adopted. She yearns for relief from the grinding poverty, and a secure home. Having been violated by a nobleman posing as her hero, she wants naught of any other man of title, and also scorns the dubious Gypsy king who pursues her. In a tent at the bustling autumn fair in Winchester, she meets the dashing Lord Tabor, and her resolve to avoid all noblemen softens.Though possessed of a stately castle with prosperous lands, the English knight,Tabor, teeters on the brink of losing all his holdings. A powerful noble has attacked Tabor's castle, determined to seize his lands. Tabor seeks revenge for his older brother's murder, but England's throne is held by an infant king and his feuding uncles. The realm is paralyzed with uncertainty and lawlessness, and the crown has abandoned him.Then a stroke of good fortune helps Tabor, a sizeable dowry that can save his holdings. He need only wed an earl's daughter, the regal Lady Emilyne. But he has already fallen in love with Sharai, and they are locked in a powerful dance of desire. His refusal to abandon Sharai plunges them into life-and-death struggles--and a painful choice between duty and love.The story, book one in the four-volume Coin Forest series, is set in a unique period in history when Gypsies were welcomed, their travels even financed by the nobility in the countries in which they traveled. Dubbed the Gypsy social honeymoon period, it lasted for just a few decades as the Gypsies ventured into Western Europe. Growing mistrust, a waning interest in pilgrimages and increasing incidents of thievery and racial/culture clashes combined to end the honeymoon. The incidents in Tabor's Trinket occur as the honeymoon begins to sour.REVIEWS"Fast-paced and peopled with characters that stay with you long after you turn the last page." --Lara Adrian, NYTimes and #1 international best seller "This adventurous and chivalrous story succeeds on many levels. An emotionally satisfying tale." -Romantic Times "Tabor's Trinket" has made Janet Lane one of my favorite authors. I loved the book! If you're looking for wonderful story-telling, unforgettable characters, and a marvelous sense of time and place, you must read Janet Lane." -Maggie Osborne, RITA-award-winning author "Fans of medieval romance will be thrilled with the tightly written plot. It is a story of love in the face of prejudice and misunderstanding, set in a time wrought with intrigue and political machinations. Ms. Lane's debut novel grips the reader from the first page to the last, and Lord Tabor is a wonderful hero. A knight who reads books of romance is sure to steal any heart. Go ye forth and seek out Tabor's Trinket, it far surpasses being a bauble. Indeed, 'twould more likely be called a small treasure. -loveromance.com "Debut novelist Janet Lane pens a descriptive story set in a period of great political unrest when a man of honor is hard to find. This is a romance, so we know there will be a great conclusion. It's the fun of finding out how that makes Tabor's Trinket intriguing. Pick up this title and enjoy the read." -Romance Reviews Today
