Overview

The Damsel by Claire Delacroix

A proud maiden, she vowed never to love again... until he rode back into her life.

"I come in search of a bride."

Once upon a time, the legendary knight, Burke Fitzgavin, galloped into Kiltorren Castle and fell in love with Alys, the lord's orphaned niece. But her uncle was determined that Burke marry one of his homely daughters instead. Through tricks and lies, Burke was sent away, believing that Alys wanted nothing of his heart.

Pledged to a Bride Quest, Burke has vowed not to return home until he finds his long-lost love. He returns to Kiltorren to discover that the fiery young innocent has become a woman, a servant on her uncle's estate. Paying penance for Burke's long-ago embrace, she wants nothing to do with him. Burke knows he must earn her trust again. Even as he slowly rekindles her desire, Alys's family attempts to thwart their romance—determined that Alys should not marry before her cousins do. But Burke is a warrior and this battle to win the hand and the heart of his one true love will be his greatest challenge ever. . . .

Watch for The Heiress, the crowning novel in the sumptuous Bride Quest trilogy of the three brothers Fitzgavin, which began with The Princess.

This was a well-written, excellent book. A knight, Burke Fitzgavin, fell in love with Alys, the lord of Kiltorren Castle’s orphaned niece on first sight. Her uncle insisted that his daughters be married first, and Burke was sent away. He later returns, pledged to complete a Bride Quest and find his long-lost-love. They will have to battle their way through tricks and lies to find their path to love. I loved this book so much! This book can be read as a standalone story, though it is part of the Bride Quest series with related characters. I look forward to reading more books in this series, as well as others by this author. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.

Characterization made hero and heroine appear to lack any common sense; appearing almost stupid.......just terrible story development. If I could give this one 0 stars I would.

Of the three books in the series this is my least favorite. I vannot stand the female lead's character. And, there is not much to the plot to draw you in. I am not a fan of physical abuse on anyone. The best book in the series was the first book, The Princess. I wish there really were Luc's out there!

It is a boring book, more or less the story of cinderella. So this is going to be my last book to read of this trilogy

This book was great. I read the first book in the trilogy and scoured the bookstore shelves waiting for this one. The deceit of the poor girls family will keep you reading. I can't wait for the last book. It's a must on my reading list.
