Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When Lady Eadyth, the legendary Silver Jewel of Northumbria, strides into Ravenshire Castle to propose marriage, Eirik, Lord of Ravenshire, is appalled; but her reasons are compelling and Eirik is intrigued. This infuriatingly independent beekeeper heroine and handsome, but unpolished, tenth-century nobleman provide plenty of sparks and conflict in a passionate story that, despite clichs and a lack of trust on the part of both hero and heroine, will keep readers involved to the end. The novel won the Georgia Romance Writers' Maggie award for the best unpublished historical romance in 1993. Hill (The Reluctant Viking, Love Spell, 1994) is the recipient of Virginia Romance Writers' award for the best first book. [Hill lives in State College, Pa.]

    An historical romance of Saxon England

    This saga of tenth-century England focuses on a less-explored historical era. The plot is a typical romance, with the main characters being highly attracted to one another, but repeatedly finding reasons to deny the attraction. The heroine, faced with the chance of losing her son to his sadistic birth father, to whom she was not given the chance to be married, seeks a powerful husband with similar features to claim parentage. She in return offers wealth, property and her strong abilities as a chatelaine. That she is beautiful and desirable seem not to occur to either principal until rather late in the relationship. Both have trust issues.

    Briefly put, if you enjoy historical romance with a bite, this will entertain you.

    This is a reprint of a 1990s award winning tenth century Viking romance

    At one time Lady Eadyth was known as the Silver Jewel of Northumbria. That was before she had an illegitimate child in 946 AD that led to her being dubbed as the Tarnished Jewel. Eadyth needs a husband to protect her and her offspring from a nasty brute who plans to gain custody of her son.

    Needing a bodacious plan, Eadyth marches into Ravenshire Castle to persuade that barbaric "loathsome lout" Lord to marry her. He is aghast by her hag looks and her sassy mouth. However, instead of rejecting his guest's strange proposal, he becomes interested when he learns who sired her son. Eirik plans to use Eadyth as a pawn to get to his adversary who is also her son's father. He will be further stunned when he learns what she really looks like but trouble is fomented by their common enemy and leaves them in peril.

    This is a reprint of a 1990s award winning tenth century Viking romance starring two battling Vikings in love and a common vile enemy. The story line is fast-paced with a humorous Sandra Hill trademark romance although the adversary is stereotyped detracting from their jocular gender war.
