Overview

1347. Calais has finally fallen and Alaun de Montisfryth, first Earl of Montisfryn, powerful Marcher lord and companion of Edward III, is dispatched back to England with orders to secure the Welsh border. Halfway home, pride tempts Montisfryn to attend a tournament held by his family's old foes at Versallet Castle.

Eloise de Versallet, the widowed Lady de Cannar, rules her father's castle with a tongue sharper than any sword. She has no great opinion of men in general and of knights in particular.

Montisfryn and Eloise meet and sparks fly. He is intrigued. She is irritated.

He is under royal edict to wed. An experienced lady, well-born, still young, and exceedingly well-endowed with both wealth and beauty, Eloise is a matrimonial prize beyond compare-and has vowed to remain unwed.

Potent and powerful, will Montisfryn be able to breach her walls, storm her castle, and succeed where all others have failed? Or will Eloise, haughty and defiant to the last, prevail? The gauntlet is flung, the challenge accepted. And desire enters the fray.

A Novel of 140,000 words. A medieval historical romance in the classic style, this work contains multiple explicit love scenes.

    Desires Prize...Great read!

    Well Stephanie Laurens never disappoints! Her venture into midievil times is a success! I enjoyed getting to know these characters and hope to read more from M.S. Laurens in future. Keep 'em coming!

    Just awesome

    I have always loved reading Stephanie Laurens and medieval romances so when I saw she had written Desire's Prize, I was really excited. This book did not just meet my expectations, it surpassed them. The plot was character driven with plenty of action scenes. A lot happened in the story but nothing seemed contrived, it all seemed natural to the settings and the characters. I loved this book :)

    Powerful, Perfect

    Powerful. A true romance. Very strong characters, a lovely view of medieval life. I love all Ms. Laurens works, I am a huge Cynster fan. But this book is truly special.
