BETROTHED AT BIRTH…

Promised to Merrick of Tregellas when she was but a child, Lady Constance was unwilling to wed a man she remembered only as a spoiled boy. Sure he had grown into an arrogant knight, she sought to make herself so unappealing that Merrick would refuse to honor their betrothal. Yet no sooner had this enigmatic, darkly handsome man ridden through the castle gates than she realized he was nothing like the boy she recalled. And very much a man she could love…

BOUND BY DESIRE…

Haunted by secrets from his past, Merrick was unwilling to return to Tregellas—until he caught sight of his bride-to-be. Beautiful and spirited, Lady Constance was everything he wanted in a wife. She stirred his passion—and his heart—as no woman ever had before. But what would happen when she discovered the truth?

When enemies begin plotting their downfall, only trust can save a match never meant to end in true love.

Meet the Author


Margaret Moore actually began her writing career at the age of eight, when she and a friend would make up stories together. She also loved to read and many years later graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature. After reading a romance by Kathleen Woodiwiss, Margaret took a course in popular fiction writing and through that, found Romance Writers of America. Three years later, in 1991, she sold her first historical romance. And the rest, as they say, is history!

    An entertaining medieval romance

    After fifteen years on the road as a knight, following the death of his odious estranged father, Merrick returns home to Tregellas as its lord and expecting to marry Constance, his intended since he was ten and she five. Upon arrival at his manor, he finds the people do not trust him as they assume he is a chip off the old evil block, his fiancée is scared of him, and Uncle Algernon and Constance¿s Uncle Carrell seem to be plotting something................. Merrick knows he has his work cut out to overcome his nasty father reputation and demonstrate he is not a chip off the old block who raped women and begat at least one child out of wedlock. He begins courting Constance, but refuses to tell her he has loved her since he was a little boy and dreamed that she loved him back. Expecting Merrick to behave like his sire, Constance tries to hide how she feels about him, but knows she wants him. Though he behaves exemplary towards his people and her, she still has doubts. Soon their respective uncles begin the plot to kill Merrick and Constance so that Algernon becomes the lord married to Carrell¿s daughter................... THE UNWILLING BRIDE is an entertaining medieval romance starring a wonderful male protagonist who keeps learning first hand how the child inherits the sins of the father. The story line is at its vivid best as Merrick tries to persuade his villagers he is nothing like his father and his beloved should not expect abuses from him. Though the treacherous subplot seems unneeded as Merrick has a full plate and more to deal with, fans will enjoy this mid thirteenth century tale that has a fantastic final twist that will surprise everyone though the clues are there..............

    Lady Constance was betrothed to Merrick of Tregallas from the da

    Lady Constance was betrothed to Merrick of Tregallas from the day she was born. She remembers him as a spoiled rotten child and doesn’t want anything to do with him, until she meets him as the dashing knight. Merrick refuses to return to Tregallas due to his dangerous past, but when he catches sight of his future bride, he wants to be a better man. Though his past may come back to haunt him and cost him his Lady before she is even rightfully his.




    Margaret Moore writes about a strong, determined woman during a time period that women were supposed to not speak. She adds a subplot full of twists and turns that only add to the romantic storyline. Though this book is the third in a series, it works well as a stand-alone novel. There are many characters to keep up with, but the intrigue keeps readers entertained. Readers will be rooting for Merrick and Constance all the way until the end.

    Boring

    Dull read. Even the plot twist at the end doesn't make it worthwhile. The story's as predictable as a road map and the characters straight from central casting. The plotline tries too hard to get the whole world against the main characters, so hard that the arguments come across as fake and contrived. There are too many modern ideas and concepts involved to make it believable - not everyone back then was concerned whether the married couple would be happy, some yes, that I could see, but not everyone. Even the plot twist, the highlight of the whole thing, was too out of the blue to be believable. The author completely failed to insert hints into the story, making it seem like this was a last minute revelation even to her. Then again, she might have done it on one of the many, many pages I skipped.

    All in all, not worth the effort.

    Worthwhile read

    Had I stopped reading this book because it was plodding and dull I would have missed an ending that made me utter 'NO, I can't believe it!' and a page later 'OH MY!' Being an ex-police officer I can usually solve any mystery or secret to these books. Given 1,000 chances I would have never come close. Read the book for the surprise of the year.
