Drawn to her avowed enemy

Baron Mathieu Fitz Autier expected some resistance when he staked his claim to the Saxon land he'd won in battle. But he never imagined that the former lady of the manor would have the courage to fight back—with an arrow aimed at his head!

Lady Aelia saw her world slipping away as the Normans took control of her beloved home. Worse, she was drawn to Fitz Autier—her avowed enemy. She would not give in to the passion she sensed in this fierce warrior: not when he was honor-bound to deliver her to a Norman king. The journey ahead was sure to test them both beyond reckoning.

    Poignant and Gripping Read!

    ¿The Bride Hunt¿ was my first experience by author Maguire, one I was pleasantly surprised with. While I enjoyed it immensely, her latest, ¿Saxon Lady¿, has blown me away. It¿s a sweet, heart-pounding tale of a woman destined to pay for the sins of her father and a man struggling to find his place in the world. With invasion by the Normans turning her life inside out, I was left breathless many times, wondering what their fate would be. Norman conqueror, Mathieu Fitz Autier, is under orders by King William to secure the holding of Inglewald and return its nobles to London for trial and possible death. He relishes the opportunity to take for himself a little bit of the respect that his position of illegitimate in his father¿s household has long denied him. He will take what he can, gaining the means necessary to secure the noble wife waiting for him at court. As the heat of battle rages though, a split second glance of a beautiful Saxon woman forever changes that longed for life. Lady Aelia is not about to bow graciously to Norman barbarian who has come to claim her home. She fights beside her men with the guts and determination found amongst any one of the other knights present. When she looses her arrow on the Norman invader though, her heart is moved, and she despises herself for it. As the oppression of London and King William looms closer, can the two sworn enemies find a way to reveal their feelings and find a peace? First of all, I want no one to be misled. The heroine is not treated ill in this book. Yes, she has some close calls with some rather frightening individuals, but she is a strong heroine, capable of handling a weapon and she is in no way a wilting willow type. Mathieu is a man torn by his feelings for the beguiling woman and his duty to his king. He is determined to resist her, but his staid warriors sensibilities are no match for Aelia¿s kindness to her people, or her alluring attraction. Through their interactions, I experienced one of the most beautiful historical romances ever. Author Maguire is practically and auto buy for me now and I am highly anticipating her sequel to ¿The Bride Hunt¿, and I hope it her next release, ¿The Perfect Seduction¿, available Sept. 2006. K.

    Strong leads, feisty natures, passion, vulnerability... good book, glad I read it :) Love steamy historicals with battle scenes and passion, the story doesnt disappoint. Only thing that I would have changed is taking the word "'round" out of the book... its constant use really annoyed me lol

    Good story and character development

    Enjoyable with good chatacter development, and relationship building between the lead characters. The ending was a bit quick, but it will not disappoint.

    I would recommend.
