Product Description

Product Description

Sir Robert Alain de Bellencombre has been granted what every man wants: a rich English estate in exchange for his valiant service at the Battle of Hastings. To claim this reward, the Norman knight must wed the estate's Saxon heiress. Most men would leap at such an opportunity, but for Alain, who broke his vow to his dying mother by failing to protect his youngest brother in battle, it means facing more easily broken vows. But when rumors of rampant thievery, dangerous beasts, and sorcery plaguing a neighboring estate reach his ears, nothing will make him shirk duty to king and country when people's lives stand at risk. He assumes the guise of a squire to scout the land, its problems, and its lady.

Lady Kendra of Edgarburh has been granted what no woman wants: a forced marriage to an enemy who may be kith or kin to the man who murdered her beloved brother. Compounding her anguish is her failure to awaken the miraculous healing gift bequeathed by their late mother in time to save his life. Although with his dying breath, he made her promise to seek happiness above all, Kendra vows that she shall find neither comfort nor love in the arms of a Norman…unless it snows in July.

Alain is smitten by Lady Kendra from the first moment of their meeting; Kendra feels the forbidden allure of the handsome and courtly Norman "squire." But a growing evil overshadows everyone, invoking dark forces and ensnaring Kendra in a plot to overthrow the king Alain is oath-bound to serve. Kendra and Alain face a battle unlike any other as their honor, their love, their lives, and even their very souls lie in the balance.

A wedding ceremony should be blissful. The bride should be happy. But for Lady Kendra of Edgarburh, it is a forced marriage arranged by her father. She is to marry Sir Robert Alain de Bellencombre. Not only that, she was still grieving for her brother, Del, who had recently died after the Battle of Hastings. As he was dying he asks her to promise him something. She swears anything … then says, “If it were within my power, I would give you snow in July.” But, he merely wants her to “…strive to find happiness.” As she contemplates her forced marriage to what she considers a barbaric Norman, she wonders if she will ever feel any happiness again.

Unbeknownst to her, Alain doesn’t want the marriage either. It is by decree from the king, who is now a Norman. For Alain’s victory at the Battle of Hastings, he receives an English estate upon his marriage to the estate’s Saxon heiress. Alain is also in mourning for his younger brother for whom he felt personally responsible and was not able to save during the battle.

I loved the characters of both Alain and Kendra. They were joyful to watch as each had their own preconceived ideas of the other. The historical perspective in the story is true to the age of early 11th century. It had just a bit of a paranormal flair as Kendra’s ‘rare healing gift’ is passed down from her mother. The paranormal aspect did not dominate or overtake the story. The romance within the novel is clean. However for younger readers, the battle detail may be too explicit. Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is the second book I've read by this author and I thoroughly enjoyed this amazing story. The characters felt so real as I was reading and their emotions came through great. The history was very well written and it contained everything a read wants in a story ,you will find romance, history , Intrigue, magic, and knights in shining amour .As I was reading this story ,I find myself rooting for the hero and the heroine ,but at times their seemed to be at odds with each odd. There's surprises at very turn and its not what you would expect. Just reminder sometimes we all have to do something we don't want to do, but we do it. I could go no and tell you more about this amazing story but that would spoil it for you. I highly recommend you read this great story by Kim Headlee ,you won't be disappointed. This author writes totally amazing story that pulls you in and holds you there until the very end'

HASH(0x992836fc) out of 5 stars Del made Kendra promise to find happiness, even if it meant a Norman was the ... Aug. 23 2014
By Belinda Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The Battle of Hastings is over and the Normans and the Saxons are dealing with the aftermath in their own ways. William, a Norman, is now king and he has decreed that his knight, Robert Alain de Bellencombre marry Kendra and he will receive her father's lands for serving him so well during the battle of Hastings. Kendra is horrified at the prospect of marrying a Norman, because she's been lead to believe that it was a Norman who killed her beloved brother, Del, at Hastings. She vows that she'll never marry a Norman. On his deathbed, Del made Kendra promise to find happiness, even if it meant a Norman was the one who could bring her that happiness. She begrudgingly agrees, but when Del dies, her heart is even more hardened against the Normans.

The reader enjoyed this novel from the very beginning. It had just the right amount of a paranormal flair to fit in with the era in which the action takes place. The reference to King Arthur made the novel seem more real, because his legends are so popular. I liked the fact that Alain originally arrived at Kendra's acting as a squire partly to see if she would be a good catch or a wretched wench to be married to for the rest of his days. The novel is delightful! The glossary afterward is what spoiled it for this reader. Having had years of experience with the French language and it's pronunciation, it was distressing to see how many words were mispronunced in the glossary. This aside, it is a magical story and worthy of being read over and over again.

HASH(0x99be2db0) out of 5 stars I hated every interruption that made me put the book down July 7 2014
By Kathy (isareader) Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This story held my attention throughout. The trials and dangers faced by the characters were many but not exaggerated in an unbelievable way. I hated every interruption that made me put the book down! Kendra's heartbreak made me empathetic to her troubles and Alain stole my heart with his devotion to her: "His sole regret...was that he could not keep kissing her until all the stars fell from the sky."

A refreshingly "clean" romance with a touch of magic. A 5 star read and highly recommended!

HASH(0x99167da4) out of 5 stars Intriguing and irresistible novel! Sept. 1 2014
By Jill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
How could one not love this novel by Kim Iverson Headlee? Snow in July has everything a reader could want, Romance, Intrigue, History, Magic, and most of all (for us Arthurian lovers) a knight in shining armor! The story is set during the Normans and Saxons, which in itself, the history is a character that parallels the novel. In the midst of everything, our star-crossed lovers have to overcome thievery, beasts, and dangerous sorcery, however the biggest obstacle of all is their intense feelings for one another. I must say, that this novel does not drag at any point. I found myself not wanting it to end. Our beloved characters find themselves falling in love whether they want to or not. Alain and Kendra have what this time period is known for, honor. But the question remains, can our lovers throw caution to the wind and be honest and vulnerable? See for yourselves, as today you can grab a copy of this intriguing and irresistible novel and find out. I couldn’t recommend a better book for the summer, Snow in July fits in so many genres, it will please everyone.

HASH(0x9ca3ffcc) out of 5 stars A Fantastic Read... Sept. 8 2014
By Pam Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm not sure what made me pick this book - it's not a genre I normally read but I had received a couple of tweets about it and the title interested me. Then when I saw the cover, I liked it and I suppose you could say I felt inspired to read more than the description. I'm so glad I did.
Starting off with the Battle of Hastings it soon had me wanting to read on and, as the book progressed, I found it more and more to my liking. The story was a fascinating mix of history, fact, author imagination, and a bit of magic power that was made quite believable.
I am happily giving this book 5 stars and it deserves every star and more. The main characters were well rounded and I quickly clicked with their personalities. It was a marvelous read, which I highly recommend.

HASH(0x9b223de0) out of 5 stars Richly captivating! July 4 2014
By Kemberlee Lugo Shortland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Some years ago, I had the pleasure of reading Kim Headlee's debut novel, Dawnflight: The Legend of Guinevere. In my review, I had said -- "Dawnflight" is as seamless a story as they come...". I became a fan of Kim Headlee's writing from the first page. Now, Kim has written another wonderful story with Snow in July which is just as seamless and wonderfully written. Through her unique voice, Kim made it easy for me to understand the plights of both Alain and Kendra. The imagery pulled me right back to the 11th century and let me live in that time period for a while. And the rich, well-written plot kept me turning pages because I had to see what would happen next. I loved this story.
