Eleanor of Strathcombe is stunned to realize she has a powerful attraction to Hugh of Wykeham, the arrogant, neighboring lord returned from the Crusade. But he wants to marry her sister, and when he learns that poachers are running rampant he blames her and feuds with her over the control of their forest boundaries. As she struggles to keep control of her forests and find the poachers, unsettling feelings confront her when she deals with Hugh, feelings she never felt in her brief, loveless marriage.

When she finds herself in the midst of a net of intrigue and lies, she needs to find the courage to capture the conspirators, save herself and her sister, and overcome her feelings for Hugh…even though that’s the last thing she wants to do.


"The love story told within Kremer's pages is at once both sweetly innocent and steamily enticing, allowing the reader to use their own imagination to let the seductions fully unfold."Torch in the Forest," while a romance, is one that values morals and propriety more than cheap thrills. With its well-placed use of nuance, it is proof that hints and innuendo are more enticing (and romantic!) than crude escapades, and reminds us also, that one can never underestimate the power of an intelligent woman." --Newport Beach Independent Newspaper

Marcie Kremer you are amazing! I just finished Torch In The Forest last night, and I really, really loved it. It has all the elements of a great book, love, intrigue, romance, a beautiful young female protagonist and a page turning plot. (This was the first roma ...more

The book was a quick, fun read, with lots of fun historical details and a plot that kept me turning the pages. I really liked Eleanor and her steadfast character. Hugh ticked me off from time to time, but that was actually what he was supposed to do :) I loved getting a peak into the Middle Ages and ...more

A light, quick red. I enjoyed it, but it was a bit simplistic and could have used a bit more depth. I would read another to see what else the author can do as the premise was good.

Married at fourteen to a hideous man, many years her senior, Eleanor is already a widow at eighteen. Intelligent, strong, and beautiful, the young Countess is mistress of the lands and people of Strathcombe on behalf of her liege lord, William of Litchfield. Sadly, like her late husband, the Earl of ...more

Marcie Kremer’s Torch in the Forest was a delight to read. I typically don’t read romance novels but this intelligently written (yet easy to follow) page turner pulled me in immediately. Protagonist Eleanor is a leading lady in every sense, especially considering the political upheaval and the unfai ...more

By My Book Addiction and More March 29, 2013

TORCH IN THE FOREST by Marcie Kremer is an exciting Medieval Historical Romance set in 1272 England. A quick fun read filled with danger and romance. Follow Lady Eleanor and Lord Hugh on a journey of Medieval intrigue and passion. Simply scandalous! Fast paced and a page turner. I read it in one set ...more

This book was interesting. Eleanor and Hugh had a chemistry and neither really liked the other. It was interesting watching these two find out about each other and realize that what they originally thought wasn't true. ...more

By Bookish Enchantment July 13, 2013

Quite a good book. I got a little bored about a quarter of the way through but it did pick up. A little different from other romances and certainly a nice change. Not overly sloppy. ...more

About the author

Marcie Kremer

Growing up in Europe and seeing castles on a daily basis made me sure I wanted to live back in the Middle Ages. Since that wasn’t likely to happen, being a child of the 20th century, the next best thing I could try to do was to write about this enthralling period in history. Having studied medieval history in college, I loved doing the research about how people really lived and spoke and dreamed and loved, and so TORCH IN THE FOREST came to be, thanks to my dear husband, who encouraged me to write about Eleanor and Hugh. When I'm not writing, I’m reading, or traveling. I love hearing from readers and am happy to do book club conference calls!
