Overview

For some, love comes swiftly at first glance, for those most stubborn it can take a lifetime...

Since birth Lady Ginevra has been betrothed to Lord Wolfram, second son to the Count of Whetshire. There was never any question as to whom she would marry or who she would be. Life has been mapped out for her and she's going to live happily ever after as a Countess. However, there is one complication to her plans. Her rogue of a future husband isn't taking to their life together with open arms. In fact, he seems to enjoy finding reasons to put the nuptials off.

WARNING: This book spans the course of decades and deals with marital issues arising from an arranged marriage between two (practically) strangers that may be sensitive to some readers.

What Reviewers Are Saying...

"5 HEARTS! Ms. Pillow succeeded in bringing her words to life. This book breathes, screams, and compels you to finish it. This is a spectacular Epic story about love growing in spite of everything ­ a love separated by duty, age, time and the very natures of Wolfe and Gin. This story captures your attention until you can no longer remember that Gin and Wolfe are characters instead of living souls. Awesome, do not miss!" Sara Sawyer, TRS, January 28, 2006

"4 1/2 Stars! ...a beautifully crafted story." Ecataromance

AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall 3 Narration  4 Story  2  The third medieval era romance story that I’ve read/listened/reviewed from Michelle Pillow. Her ability to set a story with details to invoke imagery and establish a premise for the story to come is accomplished and smooth.   And the premise for this story: a betrothal of two titled children is a strategic device for power and protection common in the time.  With Wolf (Lord Wolfram) being eight years older than Gineva, there is a great age gap, and plenty of time for Gin to learn of and accustom herself to her destiny.  Wolf isn’t appreciative of a child bride, and refuses to use and abuse her in the way many a husband would. He’s developed a reputation as a womanizer, and his efforts to stay away from Gin as he does battle with men  and woos women is renown, and word is coming back to Gin.  Gin, despite her chafing at the ‘set nature’ of her life, has a crush on Wolf, but he is rarely around, and when he  is, she refuses to fawn at his feet.   Pacing and development of characters were issues for me in this book, from a promising start to moments that dragged without appearing to effect development of characters or further the story.  Of the two, main characters, Wolf’s development was a bit more complete: his reasons for avoiding Gin and his attempts to do he ‘right’  thing by this young girl, even when he takes refuge in another woman’s bed are well detailed, if not always  the behavior one would expect from a ‘hero’.  Gineva grows up, but never really matures, even when the two finally see their way clear to become a married couple.  There were several steamy moments, but these missed  the pull for me that would have come with the sense of connection to a character that was more developed.   Narration was provided by Leslie Parkin who has done a wonderful job. The voicing of Gineva was a difficult  task: from childhood through the years to woman, and there were subtle changes in her character voice over  the span of the story, while maintaining the more general delivery and speech patterns.  Other characters were  distinguished by pitch and tone changes, and were easy to recognize without being told who was speaking.   A lovely performance.  Overall, this just wasn’t the best of the 3 medieval historical romances I have read from Ms. Pillow, missing some of the oomph from characters that just breathe and materialize before you as the story progresses.   I received an AudioBook copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Michelle M. Pillow is a fabuolous writer who has engaging characters. She makes you want to keep buying the next book in series. Her characters can web from one series into another series. very intricate story telling.

It kept me reading the entire day just to see what was going to happen next! Steamy .. I dont like when women willingly accept cheating, but she was too young to be a wife yet. It made me angry and laugh and of course finally sigh....

It started off well. We meet the main characters as children they argue and fight neither wants to marry although their parents made a agreement. As a child the h seems fiesty amd smart but as a grown womem she finds the H have sex with other women everytime she turns around (even their wedding night!)and she just yearns for him anyway. I wanted to throw up.
