“A definite must read for fans of medieval romance! Few authors can bring the past to life as vividly as Patricia Ryan. Wild Wind is a wildly romantic love story from an incredibly gifted author! Patricia Ryan’s writing sparkles!” The Literary Times

“Explosive and spellbinding. Ms. Ryan once more deftly develops unique and unusual plot elements in this finely crafted tale of bittersweet love.

This poignant and thought-provoking medieval is remarkable and unforgettable.” The Old Book Barn Gazette

    Hello

    Good book. The last chapters get a little tedious with the 'I want to but I cannot' back and forth; and honestly did she really think that if she ordered a hulking brute to do something with no backup that he would calmly say 'yes madam' and comply?! Worth a read even if you skip through the repeat parts.
