    Overpriced and Tedious.................................................

    Starts out fairly good. But for a couple that fell head over heels in love almost immediately they had a blanket distrust for each other. It was the distrust that becomes tedious after awhile. It would have been an OK read for 99 cents but for $6.49 it was a bummer.

    The Warlord's Bride by Margaret Moore

    Margaret Moore is one of my favored Harlequin Historical authors. Her latest is "The Warlord's Bride" and it's a story set in the Middle Ages about a Norman bride and a Welsh lord.

    Lady Roslynn's first husband turned out to be an abuser and a traitor. She was lucky she wasn't killed along with him when the king's trap was sprung. But now King John has sent her off to be married yet again and this time to a Welshman known as the Bear of Brecon. How can Roslynn ever trust a man or force herself to submit?

    This is a quick Harlequin read, but I was a bit disappointed by the obvious plot and resolution. There weren't the twists that I'm used to from Margaret Moore and thus my rating is a bit lower. It's still a good historical for a cold winter's afternoon, but I expect a bit more than good from this talented author.

    This is a fine King John era romance.

    In 1205 King John orders Lady Roslynn and Welsh Lord Madoc of Llanpowell to marry. Because her late spouse was condemned as a traitor, Roslynn expects guilt by association will mean her monarch dumped her on a grisly brute of a husband whose nickname as the "Bear of Brecan" affirms her belief and exiled her to the wilds of Wales as THE WARLORD¿S BRIDE.<BR/><BR/>Accepting her doomed fate, when she meets her new spouse, she is pleasantly surprised that he is her age and he shows kindness to her and others. Madoc is pleased with his bride who is pretty but caring. However, soon after they exchange their vows, someone slaughters sheep with many believing the new bride involved. When Roslynn finds out about the feud between her husband and outlawed brother-in-law, she tries to intercede as Madoc assumes his sibling is behind the cruel acts while his wife thinks a clever diabolical unknown adversary is the cause.<BR/><BR/>The above two paragraphs fail to portray what makes a Margaret Moore medieval stand out from much of the rest as on the surface is a typical historical romance. The key is the seemingly effortless interweaving of early thirteenth century Wales as a backdrop so vivid, fans can picture the scenery first hand; yet as stunningly vibrant Wales comes across, the lead couple own the fast-paced story line as they struggle with their relationship at a time someone is using their newness against them. This is a fine King John era romance.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
