Arthur by Maryse Dawson

The Year of our Lord 1071 – Saxon rebel, Hereward the Wake is, yet again, creating trouble for the new King of England, William the Conqueror. Sending an army to the Isle of Ely, the king seeks his surrender.

Elvina, Hereward's daughter, hates the Normans as passionately as her father does. Trapped on the island in the abbey, the abbot urges her to leave for her own safety before the Normans invade. Taking his advice, she attempts to flee but is quickly seized by seasoned knight, Sir Arthur de Clairvoy, and taken into custody. Against her wishes, the king immediately orders the feisty Elvina to wed Arthur, in order to keep peace between her father and the crown.

Elvina hates everything the conquering Normans stand for, yet cannot deny the attraction she feels for her new husband. But when her rebellious nature gets the better of her, she soon learns her dominant husband uses the same method of discipline as his brothers do, a sound spanking. Can she accept her fate and learn to love her Norman husband?

Publisher's Warning: This is a romance, filled with graphic sexual scenes and punishment spankings between a husband and a wife.

OH, FIE ON THEE! SHOW THYSELF FOR THE DEVIL THOU ART Book two in the Knights of Normandy was a great addition to Renaud. This time, it is the de Clairvoy brother, Arthur, who will be wed, per King William’s decree. While the de Clairvoy brothers are sent to the Isle of Ely in an attempt to overthrow Hereward the Wake, Arthur captures his daughter, Elvina, but not her father, who gets away. Taken to King William, he decides that Arthur has been a loyal servant of the crown, grants him land, and a wife, a Saxon wife. The plot had me laughing out loud so many times at the antics of Elvina, especially when she and her sister-in-law, Cynwise, are together. These two girls are cut from the same cloth of mischievousness and together, land in so much trouble with their husbands. “She had thought, in her youthful innocence, to marry a man for love. Instead, she had been given to a man from foreign lands who spoke in a different tongue. Thank goodness, she could understand his language.” A great cast of characters, many we met in book one, and lots of crazy antics by these women. The men are keep busy trying to keep their naughty wives in line. Plenty of well-deserved discipline but they also know how to love their wives.

The Norman conquest of England in the early 11th century is the setting for the story of Arthur and Elvina as the next de Clavoy brother and his Saxon bride again prove that there really is a fine line between love and hate. Arthur is also 'requested' to take the daughter of a notorious Saxon rebel as his wife by William the Conqueror. She provokes him to spankings for her behavior and insults and he continues to take her in hand. This was too similar to Renaud's story. Less of a story arc, but still sweet with a HEA. (I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book).

Elvina and Arthur are thrown together by a decree of marriage by King William. She is as feisty as her sisters in law and gets her bottom warmed with regular frequency. The writing is in the Old English style of speaking, so it doth take a few moments to get used to. All in all, a good stand alone as well as a follow up in the series.

I enjoyed this book even more than the last one. Another forced marriage, this time between Arthur and Elvina, leads to more passion and mischief. Arthur is every bit as dominant as Renaud, and Elvina gives him plenty of reasons to punish her. She even manages to get Cynwise in trouble on several occasions, as if she needed help in that area. I won't spoil the story, but Elvina goes so far as to contemplate visiting a witch. Although her mischief knows no bounds, her love for Arthur is true. The story is heartwarming and amusing. I highly recommend it.

This is a short story that delivers a very enjoyable and amusing read. Arthur and Elvina are a very fun couple that’s romance is packed into this story. They begin as the worst of enemies as Arthur is a Norman that is invading the Saxon’s Elvina’s lands but from this tough beginning they are able to find love when forced to marry. The book moves very quickly and you are given the chance to catch up with Arthur’s two brothers and their wives that were introduced in the first story in this series. Arthur strongly believes in the husband being the head of household and Elvina is feisty enough that there is much discipline needed. Please note, I received a copy of this book from the publisher for this my honest review.

I am loving this series SO much! We get to visit our old friends from book 1: Cynwise and Renaud, and Elfreda and Gerard. Now it is time for the king to decide that their brother Arthur must take a wife - the very woman he captures during a Saxon uprising, and defies him at every turn! Elvina hates the Normans and does not give Arthur a very easy time of it. I've got to hand it to the de Clairvoy brothers, they know how to bring a woman around!! Some swift and stinging discipline is a definite help, as is their skill in the bedroom!! Elvina and Cynwise take to each other as two sassy and independent women tend to do, and find themselves in quite a bit of trouble. The story is short but it's filled with the right balance of romance, sex, and spanking!! You know, all the right stuff! I received this book from the publisher for an honest review, and loved it from the very first page. Please keep them coming!!!
