"Medieval romance at its best!" --Virginia Henley, NY Times Bestselling Author

HE WOULD NOT BE DENIED HIS PRIZE

Sir Renaud de Pierrepont, the Norman knight known as the Red Wolf for the beast he slayed with his bare hands, hoped to gain lands with his sword. A year after the Conquest, King William rewards his favored knight with Talisand, the lands of an English thegn slain at Hastings, and orders him to wed Lady Serena, the heiress that goes with them.


SHE WOULD LOVE HIM AGAINST HER WILL

Serena wants nothing to do with the fierce warrior to whom she has been unwillingly given, the knight who may have killed her father. When she learns the Red Wolf is coming to claim her, she dyes her flaxen hair brown and flees, disguised as a servant, determined to one day regain her lands. But her escape goes awry and she is brought back to live among her people, though not unnoticed by the new Norman lord.

Deprived of his promised bride, the Red Wolf turns his attention to the comely servant girl hoping to woo her to his bed. But the wench resists, claiming she hates all Normans.

As the passion between them rises, Serena wonders, can she deny the Norman her body? Or her heart?

This is the first book I've read by this author. I recently read her novellas-all good. I found this book to be well written with a story that kept me interested. The historical facts were accurate, if my memory serves me from long ago history classes. I liked the characters in this book and look forward to a few of the minor ones getting their own stories. If you like medieval romance you should read this book!

It is refreshing to read a historical romance that has a great balance between the romantic story and the history of the period. Some books may become dense and thick with history. Some books ignore the history and plow right through the story line. But Regan Walker has a gift of weaving historical details in with magnificent characters. I found myself captivated by all of the characters - Knights and serving maids alike. All characters play an integral part in the story. Each has their own personality and characteristics, worthy of a story of their own. I believed I was finished with the book when I read the last very satisfying line. Yet, Walker surprised me again with a detailed author's note which included incredible research, Pinterest boards to explore and answered "in-between-the lines" questions. Again, that attention to detail and the personal note to the reader piqued my interest in her sequels.

Reviewed by April Gilly for Readers' Favorite The Red Wolf's Prize by Regan Walker is the story of Renaud de Pierrepont, Red Wolf, and Lady Serena of Talisand. Awarded Talisand and Lady Serena's hand in marriage, Renaud is excited to settle down and have his own lands, and hopefully start a family with his soon to be wife. Serena tries to escape her fate twice by running away, even posing as a servant for a time, before Renaud discovers who she is. Resigned to her fate, Serena determines to marry the new lord and make the best of things so that the people of Talisand are cared for. Despite war, mixed emotions, tempers running high, knights out for revenge, and treason, Serena and Renaud make peace with each other and set out to start a life with happiness, but end up with a little more than both thought they'd find in each other. The Red Wolf's Prize by Regan Walker is well written with unique plot twists and decent imagery. The characters have realistic flaws and feel like they could step off the pages and hold a conversation with you. What I really liked about The Red Wolf's Prize is that while not fully rooted in history, it draws upon what is known to have happened. To learn that Renaud de Pierrepont and a couple of his knights were real men that fought, and could very well have fought and lived a life similar to what is portrayed in The Red Wolf's Prize, makes the book even more enjoyable. I can't wait to read the second book in the series to see what other magic Regan Walker can work.

I did not like this book.  I would rather read "The Wolf and The Dove" or "The Prize".  Those are the medieval romances to read.
