Overview

Duty requires sacrifice…but the heart will not be denied.

At the time, pretending marriage to her middle-aged widower cousin seemed like the best way to escape a politically motivated betrothal to a brutal knight. Now, her journey toward a new life has landed her in hot water—she’s been waylaid by a local Norman baron who’s mistaken her for a real bride. And he demands First Night rights.

Hot water turns to steam in a scalding night of passion…passion she has never known. And now must live without.

Lord Geoffrey is entranced at first sight of the Anglo-Saxon beauty, and finds that one night in her arms is not nearly enough. But all he can offer the low-born Matilda is a life in the shadows—as his mistress.

Her head warring with her heart, Matilda resigns herself to her duty in a masquerade of a marriage. It’s a choice that could cost her life.

For the knight who first sought her hand is back with murder on his mind. Now it’s Geoff who’s faced with the ultimate choice: which is more precious…his estates or the love of the one woman who can heal his soul?

Matilda's Song, by JoAnn Ainsworth, absolutely delighted my imagination and held me captive with the overwhelmingly real description of the times and the riveting story that kept me wanting to hear more. As I read the book, I could imagine myself in the situation Matilda found herself. The historic accuracy only enhanced the experience. I honestly could not stop reading the book because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. The romantic scenes in the book were what truly made my heart sing, as well as, the amazing courage of the heroine who is facing something most of us in the modern world could not even fathom. I recommend this book wholeheartedly. It is the perfect companion to curl up with and go on an exciting, romantic and thrilling adventure anytime.

if you are looking for a typical steamy and predictable romance novel, forget it. you will be dissapointed. THIS IS A GREAT STORY. It will excite you, move you to fury, tears and and eventual happiness as the character you hate the most will be the one you cheer for in the end. there are twists and turns, romance and threats and well developed characters with authentifc medieval atmosphere that will delight your intelect as the author has taken great pains to make sure the time and place is believable. broaden your horizons, follow the saga of matilda and her family as they teach the age old story of love and equality between the classes. .
