Overview

What She Wants by Lynsay Sands

“You can’t help but fall in love with Lynsay Sands!”
—Christina Dodd

Lynsay Sands knows what romance readers want: love stories that are thrilling, sexy, and fun—whether they concern the amorous affairs of English lords and ladies of the Regency ton, the lairds and lasses of the Scottish Highlands, or the more contemporary vampires of the Argeneau family. In the incomparable Lynsay’s historical romance classic, What She Wants, a Scottish knight finds himself at wit’s end trying to figure out how to win the heart of the fair, if equally hard-headed, lass he is determined to marry. Everyone who enjoys the novels of Julie Garwood and Jill Barnett will be delighted to discover What She Wants…and will be enchanted by Lynsay Sands’s humor, passion, and storytelling magic.

He inherits his uncle¿s estate, but the will contains a special clause ordering Hugh Dulonget to marry Lady Willa. A highly regarded knight, Hugh can handle anything even the most formidable enemy in combat. However, Willa is another matter as he inadvertently insulted her when they first met thinking she was a peasant.

His friends offer him advice when it comes to the ladies, but they are warriors used to tossing a jewel to succeed in bedding a wench. Willa¿s crone of a guardian tells him to crawl on his wretched belly before pleading on his knobby knees for Willa to forgive his transgression. However, Hugh has always been his own man. Ignoring everyone, Hugh wants Willa with him forever so he does the unthinkable. He courts her to persuade her that the key to WHAT SHE WANTS is the bliss of always being together.

Though the roles of the support cast seem more like two-dimensional comic relief and the plot centers on a one-joke phenom, readers will laugh loudly and long at the amusing medieval romantic story line. The lead couple is a charming pair as Hugh works harder than he ever did before because the stakes are as high as he will ever faced. Previously he only risked his life, but now he must convince the woman he loves and desires for herself and not for the estate he gains if he wins her hand. Lynsay Sands creates a humorous twelfth century romance that her fans will appreciate.

Lynsay Sands is proving book after book she is a writer to be watched with deft, crafts and natural voice, she weaves a medieval tale that captures the reader from the very start. As she did in The Deed, The Key and Always, she conjures characters that will live in your heart long after the book is put down. Hugh is the new 5th Earl of Hillcrest, the Earldom coming through to him upon his uncle's death. The only provision he must meet is his uncles request he marry Willa. Hugh presumed the girl who lives in the cottage with the local witch, to be the biblow daughter of his uncle and he is insulted his uncle tried to force such a match. And, being typically male, he insults Willa by informing he has no wish to marry the illegitimate daughter of his uncle. To his horror, he later learn he does not have to marry Willa if he does not want, and he will still be Earl of Hillcrest - just all the money goes with Willa. No marriage, no money to run the vast estate. Hugh has none of his own, since my father lost their family fortunate a decade earlier, so in order to keep Hillcrest he must marry Willa. But then, Hugh is finding that option less repugnant as time passes, for Willa is a beautiful young woman with a heart gold. Hugh must quickly earn her hand in marriage in order to save all. This task is complicated by the preditions of the witch, who tells Willa if she does not hold out until Hugh crawls on his belly to her, though they wed, Hugh will be murdered within a month. She holds out and thinks all will be well, but the witch warns there are many evil forces at work that could see either of them dead. Hugh at first scoffs at this, but soon learns there is a very reall threat to Willa's life. The witch has warned he must unravel the riddle of who Willa really is before an old enemy could strike to destroy them both. This book is another tour de force for Lynsay Sands, showing a stronger side in the story line than in pervious works. Oh, the trademark laugh out loud humour is this there - with such wonderfully witty results, showing Lynsay's skill with storyteller just grows better and better. I think this is her best book to date...I look forward to the Contemporary Loving Daylight next February and all the other wonderful books to come!!!!!!!!
