Comte Grégoire FitzHenri, the new Earl of Shyleburgh, is known for his prowess as one of the Norman conqueror’s most favored warriors...but not for his romantic sensibility or his command of the English language. Grégoire looks forward to his imminent marriage with his seneschal’s beautiful daughter, his longtime betrothed. But as a rough-hewn soldier, he wishes to enchant the elegant lady before taking their wedding vows—which means an interpreter...and much-needed lessons in courtly love.
The clever Bridget of Shyleburgh has been secretly in love with Grégoire since his visit as a dashing young warrior—when he was promised in marriage to her sister. But when he returns five years later as their new earl, Bridget is tasked with translating for him—including his love letters and somewhat awkward attempts to woo her sister. Mortified at first, Bridget soon finds herself completely charmed by his whispers of love and desire. She never expected such tenderness...or such wicked temptation... from a man like him. Grégoire’s heated missives tempt a fair maiden to stray down a path filled with forbidden pleasures.
But his words are meant for another… aren’t they?

Comte Gregoire FitzHenri is the new Earl of Shyleburgh and is ready to marry his betrothed, but first he wants to romance his bride into wanting to marry him. Bridget is the interpreter between Gregoire and her sister, she has also had a crush on him for years. As Bridget and Gregoire spend more time together their attraction grows. But who are Gregoire’s words of love for, her sister or Bridget. Enjoyable historical romance. This story has wonderful characters, heartbreak and romance.
Comte Grégoire FitzHenri has been awarded Shyleburgh by William of Normandy the new King of England who replaces the English lords with Normans. As a pledge of loyalty, he is betrothed to the former lord’s – now his seneschal - heir & daughter. But Grégoire is resolute that his bride must come to him willing and in the 2 weeks prior to their wedding, he commences on a campaign to woo her. Unfortunately the beautiful Aislinn hardly speaks any French while Grégoire speaks little English & thus it is up to Aislinn’s elder sister Bridget who is fluent in both languages to play the part of interpreter between the two. This was an absolutely beautifully written story! It is Bridget that Grégoire finds himself drawn to; her earthly, natural charm & intelligence rather than Aislinn’s pallid, remote beauty. While Aislinn finds Grégoire's maleness intimidating, Bridget has been secretly idolizing him since meeting him 5 years ago when he was made the Earl. But her decision had been made before then to give up her position as her father’s heir & join a convent after suffering abuse at the hands of her 1st betrothed. Bridget does her utmost to bring Grégoire & the somewhat detached Aislinn together but gets her own emotions very much tangled into it. The romance is amazingly intense, as Bridget speaks supposedly of Aislinn’s feelings to Grégoire, what are her own feelings. She pours out her own wants & yearnings to Grégoire as “Aislinn’s” to convince him that he is winning Aislinn over but you can feel the heat curling off the pages between Bridget & Grégoire with every word she speaks. This was my 1st time reading a book from this author & I enjoyed it thoroughly. Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review.
Bridget made in an act of despair made a decision that has consequences could have far reaching consequences. Come to Me is a love that is almost ethereal. Oberon Wonch does a wonderful job of exploring the balance between forbidden love, painful decisions and the balance between right and wrong. I requested an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. Bridget was not a person who jumped into a situation without weighing the consequences. Having endured the heartbreaks that were put before her I think she went a little crazy and let confusion allow her to end of in regrettable circumstances. A wonderful starting point.
