Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
New York Times–bestselling author Betina Krahn delivers another charming, witty medieval romance in this follow-up to the highly praised The Husband Test. When King Edward demands more ransom following the Battle of Crécy, the Duke of Avalon has nothing left to give -- until he decides to name five young women as his "daughters" to become brides for English nobles. All have grown up at the Convent of the Brides of Virtue, and all have ties to nobility, except for the orphan Chloe. Eager to discover the truth about her parentage, Chloe tricks her way into the bridal party bound for England. Disguised as nuns, the prospective brides are escorted by the handsome but monkish Sir Hugh of Sennet, who considers women a "plague against mankind." But someone keeps on trying to kill the maidens, even in the midst of the "wife test" that Chloe has devised to make sure the women are well paired with the nobles. Readers will love the resourceful, spirited heroine and warm to the reluctant romance that develops between Chloe and Hugh. Ginger Curwen
Publishers Weekly
When a medieval-era nobleman needs to ransom himself but hasn't the funds, where can he turn? If he's the French Duke of Avalon, he asks the Convent of the Brides of Virtue, which has enjoyed the benefits of his protection, to deliver four marriageable "daughters" to King Edward. So begins this witty, rollicking romance between spunky Chloe of Guibray, a beauty with a questionable lineage, and the ill-tempered Sir Hugh de Sennett. Determined to uncover her mysterious English roots and see her friends happily wed, Chloe maneuvers her way into the group being sent to the king and devises "the wife test" to evaluate the best match for each lady. All would go well were it not for the stern presence of their escort, Sir Hugh, a rigid, pious knight whose ill will toward womankind is notorious. But even as he struggles to resist Chloe's charms, circumstances conspire to throw them together. Toss in reluctant bridegrooms, fractious brides and a murder attempt or two, and the course of true love runs far from smooth. The assorted maidens are types, not rounded characters, but Chloe has enough moxie to compensate for the lot of them. Despite a slow start, Krahn's amusing follow up to The Husband Test quickly blossoms into a bright, exciting adventure. (July) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Great stoyrtelling

    In France, the emissary of English King Edward informs the Duke of Avalon he still owes ransom if he wants his freedom. Avalon has nothing to offer until he learns Edward would accept as tribute virgin daughters with a dowry to be married off to his men. Avalon informs the Abbess of the Convent of the Brides of Virtue that he requires ¿his¿ four illegitimate daughters be sent to England escorted by Sir Hugh of Sennet. The Abbess knows Avalon has no known daughters, but sees an opportunity for four of her ¿throwaway¿ charges to attain a good life as an English wife.<P> Chloe of Guibray wants to go to England upon learning she may have family there, but the Abbess wants her to stay behind. Chloe ¿kidnaps¿ the nun who was accompanying the young women and takes her place. On the journey across France, the Channel, and England to the monarch¿s court, someone tries to stop Hugh from achieving his objective. Worse to Hugh is he is falling in love with Chloe, who reciprocates his deep feelings.<P> Readers will enjoy New York Times best-selling author Betina Krahn¿s latest historical romance due to a fine cast. The story line is fun as an exasperated Hugh struggles to keep his desire in check protecting the five women from his horny men and an unknown enemy. Ms. Krahn passes all the tests, as her audience will appreciate this delightful medieval tale.<P> Harriet Klausner
