The story was good but could have been written better. Nearly no sex which is fine. Took too long to identify with the characters. Not enough background given to sympathize. Descriptions in general were brief. Lots of characters, too little descriptions made it confusing. Actual story about 275 pages with about 100 pages of excerpts from 7 other books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Very good. :)
1062. At sixteen Ceara is a woman in the eyes of countrymen but she is also considered a bad tempered she-wolf and possibly a women who conspires with the devil because of her bad temper and wicked tongue. She's not pleased of the shaky truce with the Normans and tries to convince her father so, but for her being a woman she isn't listened.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

So the day comes when the Normans do arrive lead by Luc Louvat, a Knight without land, a bastard son of a Lord, if he can win Wulfridge from the stubborn Saxons he can keep it. But Wulfridge doesn't fall easily, and it isn't until the cunning wit of the Knight that they infiltrate the castle only to notice that they'd battled not against a Lord, but a Lord's wicked daughter.
Ceara belittles and smites Luc with her wicked tongue and seriously tries his patience and gets him angrier than he has ever been, but there is something else about the fair-haired maiden that raises emotions, but it isn't anything he wants to further explore. With as many tricks as Ceara has in her pocket he's wise to be cautious as he begins to transport the Lord's daughter to the King's court to lay her at his mercy.
But it turns out it's not so easy to hate when you feel more elaborate emotions, electricity running between them drawing the two stubborn together, and the two fight to figure out what they want and what they need and wither those two just might intersect eventually and what would have to be sacrificed for that.
Ceara does seem her age in her emotions of invulnerability and in her teenage hormones, but she also has the side of a woman who has been through war and seen blood, and not being a stranger to a sword. She's not your frail maiden type, but an honest to god saxon warrior princess.
Luc comes off harsh and controlled but it's yummy to read his resolves crack around her and her temper. She keeps tempting him, shunning him and purring for pleasure and it's fun to see him control on how to react to her.
I love historical novels, there is something about the brute ways and swords and the knights taking what belongs to them, but doing it while falling in love with the heroine!
A temper filled, headstrong journey with passion that simmers to a boil as fast as you can draw your sword and hack down the enemy.
