The Black Prince of England hungers to capture the lands of France, and Sir Hyatt Laidley is just the knight for the task. In exchange for years of faithful service, Hyatt will receive both land--and lady--of De La Noye in Aquitaine.
When Hyatt and his men attack, both Lord and castle fall, but the young and newly widowed Aurelie is not so easily conquered. Impassioned by the subjugation of her people, Aurelie pledges to forever honor her late husband. She may be condemned to marry the English bastard, but her heart will never yield!
But to Aurelie's surprise, Hyatt proves to be everything her former husband was not. Fearless, wise, and devastatingly handsome, he makes for a highly gifted Lord and protector. And try as she might, she simply can't feign indifference to her virile husband's passionate embrace.
Yet Aurelie is not alone in her emotional torment. Previously robbed of his inheritance and title by a deceitful stepmother, Hyatt can't bring himself to trust his French wife. But as rivals threaten the welfare of their people, the couple must decide which bond is stronger--allegiance to one's motherland or ties forged from love.
Full of danger, lust, and love, BY RIGHT OF ARMS is a smoldering medieval romance set in 14th century France that is sure to enthrall fans of VIRGIN RIVER.

I love the Author and I loved this book... Because of the language of the time it was difficult to pronounce the words in the beginning... But that only lasted for the first 20 pages or so and then as I got into the book I could not put it down... What a love story!! And what a history lesson of England/France in the 1500's... If you have any interest in Historical Fiction this book should not be missed...
An extraordinary find. I loved this book. It was so thrilling and sensually promoting, I was left breathless and wanting their story to go on. Sir Hayatt was a picture of Jane Austen's own Darcy. He appeared quite in control of himself, but on the inside he was wanting something to complete him. Aurelie completed him as Elizabeth completed Darcy.
I loved this story of Aurelie and Hyatt. This was a story of not only conquering a property in France by the English, its about two people learning to trust and love. Robyn Carr did an excellent job writing this story. Her other historical books are really very entertaining also.
I have just finished reading The Wolf and The Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss, published 3/18/1974., and began reading Right of Arms by Robyn Carr, published 6/26/1986 and was surprised at the similarities in the stories. The story are the same even the period and location. Coincidence?
