Overview

New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands returns with the unforgettable story of a reluctant bride and groom who soon find common ground in the bedroom . . .

Bastard daughter to the king, Rosamunde was raised in a convent and wholly prepared to take the veil . . . until King Henry declared she would wed Aric, one of his most valiant knights. Suddenly she found herself promising to love, honor, and obey.

Rosamunde's education had not covered a wedding night, but the handsome warrior she was now bound to seemed intent on giving her a lesson in the art of pleasure. In no time, Aric was certain she would surrender to the irresistible passion he promised.

And while Rosamunde's spirited nature often put her at odds with her new husband, his mastery in seduction was quickly melting her resolve—and capturing her heart.

Ms. Sands does a marvelous job of intrigue. She gives just enough clues to hint at the true villain while leading you down another path purposefully. She wraps it all up in humor to keep the prose from turning to murder and mayhem. This particular plot includes the education of a would-be nun about the marriage bed that will keep you chuckling to the end. And did the priest say 'obey' in the wedding vows? Well forget that!! Who would ever believe the king's love child would obey anyone, least of all her new husband. I look forward to more from this author. She never fails to entertain.

I know that middle age England had very abbrieviated life expectancy anf therefore married very young, the main characters, especially Rosamunde, to be very childlike. Granted she was raised in a convent which accounts for her naievty but her ignorance and lack of maturity is so childlike it was uncomfortable to read the love scenes. They were meant to have some humor but between her ignorance and immaturity, the refereces to her as child or girl, it was not enjoyable to read for this modern reader. In reality, one such as her would likely have been little more than a child but in fictiin i dont mind a little creative license on age so i dont feel like im reading a young teenage sex scene. Ive read many stories in the same time period and nevee felt like i was reading about a child.

Always is my first Lynsay Sands book and after enjoying the humor and the romance, I'll be going back for more soon. No doubt. This book was hilarious. Like, unexpectedly laugh out loud hilarious. Sure, some of the scenes were probably a little over the top, but I still enjoyed them. The matchup between the innocent, about to be a nun Rosamunde and Aric, who had had his fair share of lovers, was more perfect than I could have imagined. I enjoyed watching them get to know each other. Rosamunde was a great heroine and I loved watching her come into her own, not only finding something real with Aric, but learning more about herself along the way. It was fun to watch Aric submit to his growing, and semi-unwanted, feelings towards her. While Always was predictable and sometimes over the top, I had a good time reading it. It was funny and held my interest. The romance was sweet. The characters were believable. It might not be one that sticks with me for a long time, but I definitely enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of Lynsay's books in the future. I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.
