HIS LADY BRIDE - BOOK 1
A Passionate Battle of Wills...

He was a legend on the battlefield, but Aric Neville, known throughout England as the White Lion, had had his fill of intrigue and bloodshed. So he threw down his sword and walked away, to live a solitary life, cultivating a reputation as a sorcerer. But his prized tranquility was shattered when the villagers brought him a bride. Gwenyth de Auburd was a raven-haired beauty too impudent to ignore and too tempting to resist. When the war raging around them sucked Aric into his past again, he also fought a losing battle against his undeniable desire for the luscious, willful maiden...only to learn that he had come to cherish as his wife.

Great hero, ungrateful heroine. In the beginning I understood Gwenyth's feelings. She had been raised in a loving noble family to be a lady only to then be treated as little more than a servant when her uncle became her guardian. So, naturally she was upset when forced to marry a man, Aric, who lived in a hovel and was seen as a sorcerer. However, Aric treated Gwenyth with kindness, understanding and an endless supply of patience in the face of her constant name calling and bemoaning of her fate.  She was justified in her anger when she found out who he truly was when he was called back into service. Again though, even after noting how miserable her husband was and acknowledging his reasons for leaving that life behind she continued to belittle him. Aric was weighed down with guilt for an event that led to an innocent's death. He refused to share this burden with Gwenyth. He also refused to allow her to perform her duties as his wife outside of the bedchamber, instead letting his father's young, beautiful and power hungry widow to continue running the household. Both of these made Gwenyth question her position and may have contributed to her acting out but didn't keep her from falling in love with him. Several times in the story Gwenyth does some soul searching and realizes what a  brat she's being after repeatedly telling Aric that she seeks not just security but the running of a castle and servants since that's what she had been raised to do and vows to change her behavior because she loves him. However, when Aric asks her to go back to that hovel of a cottage with him that love is tested. She fails miserably telling Aric "you cannot give me everything my heart desires, then rip it away from me as if it meant nothing." Both Aric and Gwenyth have their faults. However, Aric seemed to learn from his and become a better person whereas Gwenyth would recognize hers, change for a bit then revert back to those same behaviors. Since that happened throughout the book, I'm left thinking it will continue to do so even after the end.
