A man broken in body and spirit, Cazaril returns to the noble household he once served as page and is named secretary-tutor to the beautiful, strong-willed sister of the impetuous boy who is next in line to rule. It is an assignment Cazaril dreads, for it must ultimately lead him to the place he most fears: the royal court of Cardegoss, where the powerful enemies who once placed him in chains now occupy lofty positions.

But it is more than the traitorous intrigues of villains that threaten Cazaril and the Royesse Iselle here, for a sinister curse hangs like a sword over the entire blighted House of Chalion. And only by employing the darkest, most forbidden of magics can Cazaril hope to protect his royal charge -- an act that will mark him as a tool of the miraculous . . . and trap him in a lethal maze of demonic paradox.

Where is the Romance in these books? Seriously have you even read them? I bought the Brooks because of this list. Yes I liked the first book and am reading the second one, but there is no romance at all in it. I don't get this rating. Fantasy books full of romance are written by Grace Draven, C.L. Wilson,Juliet Marillier, Samantha Young, Deborah Harkness, Patricia Briggs. Even Terry Goodman. But these books are just fantasy without romance.
