King Richard needs a royal wedding… Richard’s niece, the feisty and resourceful Lady Ariane is to be his pawn. Though she has spent the last ten years living with the infidels in the Holy Land, Richard plans to turn her into a pious Christian lady, one fit to marry the nephew of King Phillip of France and, thus, seal a lucrative contract between the two countries.

    Templar Knight Julian de Maury has vowed to love and serve his God for a lifetime; loyalty to his Lord faintly eclipsed by his dedication to King Richard. Imagine Julian's surprise when he is ordered by the king to leave their impending Middle East crusades for the purpose of accompanying a beautiful Muslim captive, the long lost Lady Ariane, back to Europe; instructing her in Christian theology and delivering her safely to the nephew of the King of France, who has requested to marry her, thus securing peace between the two countries.Ariane is determined to escape the "butcher" who calls himself a man of God. She fights valiantly, but unsuccessfully to escape transport and finds herself desperately alone in a country she barely remembers from her childhood. Treachery cunningly follows them and it becomes obvious that traitors to the king wish to hinder Julian's mission. In spite of herself, Ariane is magnetically drawn to the honorable knight, and finds his courage and compassion often directed towards her, frustrating her callous desire to continually outwit him. Thick inconceivable, insurmountable barriers lie between the devout knight and the seemingly pagan Ariane; might divine "revelation" be needed to convince either of them to graciously accept God's will for their lives? This mesmerizing tale of life, love and liberty during the late 1100's is fascinating to read and thrilling to consider; beautifully captured between the pages of this spell binding book.

    I love being swept into another time and place and Olivia Rae does it so well. The story of Lady Ariane and Templar Knight, Julian de Maury, touched me on so many levels – hope, love, faith, and finding one's true destiny. I laughed and cried! I really enjoy this series and will be watching for the next book.

    Loved it!!!!!: I fell in love with the sword and the cross chronicles, I read all three books in a few days I was sad when I came to the end of redemption but then I saw resurrection lol I searched all over for it til I realised it has not been released yet! I can't wait til it comes out! Great characters and story line full of excitement and a very morally sound story line.. finally something I can read , I love the way you add scripture and the way the characters grow in their faith of Christ our Lord. Write on good Lady I can't wait for resurrection to come out.

    What I liked:Julian. He is the reason I wanted to read this book. Seriously. I read the excerpt on Amazon and I loved the dynamic that is Julian. He is both a literal warrior and a spiritual one. Spiritually, he’s extremely bound to the rules and adheres them faithfully…and not necessarily in a good way. But that was part of the reason that he drew me in…because I wanted to see him break his rules (obviously not in a sin-against-God kind of way, but in a you-don’t-have-live-like-that way).Ariane. I’m not gonna lie folks, in medieval romance novels, it is so common to have the heroine running away from her duty to the point where I rarely read them anymore. And Ariane is a runner. But. It worked for me in this book, because she was not raised in the English culture but instead in the Arab culture. And so her desire to run was in direct correlation of the Crusades and all that went along with it.Secondary characters. There were quite a few secondary characters that had rich, complex stories making them fascinating people.History. I learned a lot about a time period that is often brushed over, and in a way that made it feel natural to the story.Spiritually, I enjoyed watching Julian get a better grasp of faith and Ariane learning what a relationship with Christ is.What I didn’t like:The one thing that really stood out to me was how quick most of the characters were to act on their emotions. Sometimes there was very little planning or thought and it drove me crazy. Half of the negative situations they found themselves in was due to the fact that they never stopped and considered and planned but instead always reacted. It was oftentimes very emotion-driven.Romantic Scale: 8Overall, I enjoyed Revelation. It is well-written and very intriguing!*I received a copy from the author to review.*

    AMAZINGIt was really wonderful to read this book immediately after Book One. The characters struggled with the changes around them, and often the most pious find change the most challenging. The Avenging Angel was ordered by his king to deliver a member of the royal family stolen by the infidels and now she is to be reunited with her heritage and married off. It all sounded so simple but do not let me spoil your reading.The author, Olivia Rae has not only a fine mind, but is a mighty wielder of the pen. Her strong vision of life in other times can only hold the readers interest by her fine penmanship. I am so hoping there Will be a book three in this series as I have become so involved in the plot I want to know more! That's a sign of a great author, well done Olivia Rae!

    Loving historical fiction is a plus for me, but since this is actually speculative history,I can appreciate the research that must have gone into the work to produce, regarding the Crusades.As a writer of wholesome literature, I can heartily applaud the author's efforts, since there is far too little wholesome literature promoted. Aside from the fact that I loved the intertwining of her faith, the story line was credible and drew me into the action.Though there were some minor typographical errors, they did not interrupt the flow of the story or distract.I have not read the other books, but this one inspires me to do so.This book was gifted to me for an honest review.

    Bravo for Olivia RaeWhat an excellent writing skill. Loved all the characters in the story and how each got what they deserved. I was glued to the tale to see what would happen next. Now I want to know when the next book in the series will be available. Don't make us wait too long. Olivia is a great Christian historical fiction author!

    When heaven intervenes man should choose to follow.Julian desires to follow the Savior, but does it his way, but romance steals the show with just a little help.

    This is the second book I've read from Olivia Rae and once again it's a story where you find yourself really relating to and rooting for the main characters. Can't wait for the next!!

    This novella is quite entertaining with engaging repartee, adventure, intrigue, evil to be overcome and a happily-ever-after to be won. But that said, my spirit chafed at the great harm that befell so many people in those times because of the Catholic Church and its many corrupted leaders and false proponents of its ways. That sad period of the world's history makes for a not so pleasing backdrop for this story. It's a wonder that virtue and truth could survive in that cesspool but it did.
