Overview

She'd entrusted her lands to his skill, but her heart was another matter . . .

Sir Henry was a knight-errant, capable of impressive prowess on the battlefield . . . and in bed. Finding two sisters -- one stunningly beautiful, the other steadfast and determined -- waiting patiently in his chamber, he entertained their proposition: a generous sum in exchange for commanding their men-at-arms in a battle to save their lands.

Seduced by the beauty of Gisele, yet irresistibly drawn to the intelligence of Mathilde, a proud woman as complex as her secrets, Henry accepts their offer. But as invaders close in, it is Mathilde who must dare to trust her deepest desires . . . and the man willing to fight for all he is worth to prove his honor.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this touching but predictable romance set in medieval England, two unmarried-and hence unprotected-young noblewomen, desperate to save their late father's estate from conniving cousin Roald de Sayres, seek help from the only available knight in the neighborhood: the handsome, carefree, impoverished ladies' man Sir Henry d'Alton. Though beautiful Lady Giselle initially attracts Henry's eye, it's her homely but bold younger sister, Lady Mathilde-whose reputation has suffered a ruinous blow at the hands of Roald-who begins to win his similarly tarnished heart. While cameo appearances by characters from previous books in Moore's Brothers in Arms series, such as Merrick from The Unwilling Bride, may thrill the author's established fans, a more thorough recap of characters' shared history would better explain the wandering Sir Henry's need to prove himself. Fortunately, colorful and compelling details of life in the Middle Ages, from battle strategies to food, abound. (Feb.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author


Margaret Moore actually began her writing career at the age of eight, when she and a friend would make up stories together. She also loved to read and many years later graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature. After reading a romance by Kathleen Woodiwiss, Margaret took a course in popular fiction writing and through that, found Romance Writers of America. Three years later, in 1991, she sold her first historical romance. And the rest, as they say, is history!

    Really good except..............................................

    Really good except.................................................................
    Somewhere around page 300 our heroine has a brain fart and does something so incredibly stupid you'll find yourself saying .........She's going to do what? Try not to let it spoil the book for you. It was pretty good otherwise.

    Courtesy of Romance Junkies:

    Lady Mathilde has a serious problem. She and her sister, Lady Giselle, recently inherited Ecclesford Castle from their father. Both know that their cousin, Roald de Sayres, isn't happy with the situation and will try to take their estate by force. They certainly can't defend the castle on their own, with just the castle garrison. Lady Mathilde has come up with a bold plan to save their home. She and Giselle will hire a knight to champion their cause. Perhaps one who is low on funds would consider taking on the job? When Mathilde learns that such a knight is staying at a nearby inn, she decides they have nothing to lose. With a nervous Giselle in tow, Mathilde marches right up to his door and knocks. No one answers.----- Sir Henry D'Alton is surprised when two women appear in his bedchamber at an inn, interrupting his sleep. It¿s not the first time a woman has shown up uninvited, but they don¿t normally arrive in pairs. The beautiful, demure Giselle easily draws his eye, but he assumes Mathilde is merely a servant. Mathilde quickly sets him straight and explains their plight. Henry has encountered Roald in the past and has no love for the man. He¿ll do his duty as a knight and take on the assignment. Henry has friends and relatives in powerful places, which certainly won¿t hurt their cause. Henry immediately moves into Ecclesford to begin his duties.----- Mathilde can¿t help but be attracted to the charming and handsome Henry. So she has no choice but to avoid him! An incident in her past has convinced her that she can¿t trust her judgment when it comes to men. Mathilde intends to protect both herself and her sister from any advances Henry might consider making. Giselle will be an heiress one day, after all. Beautiful though Giselle may be, any suitors might well care more for her inheritance than anything else. And Mathilde is convinced that spinsterhood is her own destiny.----- Henry has made a promise to himself. He wants the kind of marriage his brother and sister each found with their spouses, so he will only marry for love. If Giselle isn¿t interested in him, he won¿t pursue her. But he finds himself increasingly attracted to brash, prickly, clever Mathilde, who isn¿t his type at all. Will love sneak up on Henry? Mathilde feels unworthy of love and trust doesn¿t come easily to her. She has learned better than to believe pretty words spoken by a handsome man. Yet Henry feels equally unworthy of Mathilde. Can they find a way to give each other a chance?----- HERS TO COMMAND is a touching story with an engaging plot and wonderful characters. Henry's life has not been an easy one. He often hides behind a lighthearted manner, disguising his deeper feelings. I hoped he would find his place in life and with it, happiness. I also hoped Mathilde wouldn't be condemned to spend the rest of her life paying for a single mistake she made in innocence, naiveté, and trust. Mathilde is unique and a departure from the typical romance heroine, which was a real treat. HERS TO COMMAND is the fourth book in Margaret Moore¿s excellent BROTHERS-IN-ARMS series. I¿ve thoroughly enjoyed every installment. Very highly recommended!

    A pleasurable medieval romance

    In 1243 Martin informs Sir Roald De Sayre that he has insured that the garrison at Ecclesford has the worst weapons and ill trained knights in England, setting it up for failure. Roald pays off the former Ecclesford Commander by killing him.------ Not long afterwards, with their father dead due to the betrayal of his Commander Martin, sisters Mathilde and Giselle know their home Ecclesford is in jeopardy of odious Roald taking it over though the older sibling inherited the castle. They need a knight to protect them so they venture to a nearby inn where they enlist the drunken Sir Henry D¿Alton. He agrees to help because he loathes Roald. He changes his plans especially after learning that the beautiful quiet Giselle is quite a prize catch since through her he also can be the lord of Ecclesford. To his chagrin, the mouthy protective younger sister Mathilde heats his blood, but first he must deal with the odious Roald who will do anything to take Ecclesford including taking the new owner without her agreeing.----- HERS TO COMMAND is a pleasurable medieval romance that contains a wonderful romance between the knight and the ¿termagant. The relationship between Henry and Mathilde is delightful as she rips his skin for even considering her sibling while he rips his skin for considering her. Though Roald is too nasty of a sociopath, fans will enjoy the¿ shrew¿s¿ taming of the knight. No one writes a medieval romance quite like this talented author.----- Harriet Klausner
