Publisher's Summary

House Toustain and House Maignart, two royal houses once embroiled in a bloody feud, 30 years of peace now broken in an instant.

Sir Caden Maignart has been captured, beaten, locked in a dungeon, and wrongfully accused of kidnapping and oath-breaking. Determined to free himself and his men, and clear his besmirched name, Caden does not count on the willful nature of his captor, Lady Gwendolyn Toustain, the daughter of the man who was once his father's mortal enemy. After several attempts at escape, the lady orders him bound and chained to a wall in her chambers - where he will remain under her personal guard at all times and kept from conspiring with his men. While the lady's high-handedness infuriates him, Caden cannot deny that everything else about her drives him to distraction. Forced into close proximity with her, Caden soon finds it hard to remember his mission of escape.

When Lady Gwendolyn of House Toustain first lays eyes on her prisoner, one thing about him is abundantly clear: Sir Caden of Daleraia is a dangerous man. Yet, she must show him no fear. The captured band of knights from Daleraia are her only clue in the mystery surrounding the disappearance of House Toustain's sons, and it falls to Lady Gwen to seek justice. Is this kidnapping merely the ploy of mercenaries out for a ransom? Or has Sir Caden acted on the order of the High Lord of Daleraia and broken the peace? As she searches for the answers, she never expects the surge of passion that ignites between herself and her prisoner. The longer he remains in her clutches, the more Gwen realizes that though she has him chained, she is the one who has been captured.

    "I need book 2 now!!"

    5 amazing stars for this book. Being a lover of all things romance I have a particular fondness for historical romances and this book delivered. The plot was very original and we'll developed. It can be difficult to find a truly original storyline and Elise Marion found it. This book kept me on the edge of my seat, there is something for everyone; intrigue, wit, comedy, violence, romance, family, honor. Not wanting to give the book away but I will say this, I recommended this book to my mother and 18 year old niece . The Best historical romance I've read all year and I go through a book each day so I don't say this likely.

    "BRING ON 2ND BOOK!"

    Great book, loving the story...hate that I have to wait for next installment on how the ending turned out. I will read book, then wait for audiobook, hope it's the same narrator...his performance was that good the flow of the story went by so quick. I couldn't believe it was done, I was so into it and I wanted more, it's too bad next book isn't available 'cause I was ready to listen.

    "Story of ?bwwm? in medieval times & cliff hanger."

    Medieval clans that skin shade differ is the premise of this story. So there isn't "black/Anglo/Asian" races.. Mis understandings and drama with lust for power & male ego clash with the 2 lead characters Lady (dark female) and KNIGHT (white male) trying to fulfill their duties and roles for their clans but have attraction for each other despite being "enemies" This story has a annoying cliff hanger so the problems and traitors continue. Worth a credit/money??? Flip a coin.. I probably will buy the next book..

    "Worth The Credit!!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a fantastic book. Extremely entertaining and enjoyable.

    Really good well written medieval romance with an actual fantastic story.
    Political intrigue, betrayal, deception, mystery, suspense, action, romance, honor, death and more, this book has it all.

    Great Characters. There are a lot of characters introduced right off the bat, this was a little confusing trying to keep them all straight, but they all have their reason for being there. All the characters fall into place fairly quickly and before you realize it you are sucked into the story and know exactly who all the players are.

    This will definitely be going onto my list of books I recommend.

    This is the first time I have listened to Eric Burns narrate a book. He did a great job. Nice even pace, his narration flowed smoothly. Great character voices. Hopefully he will be narrating the rest of the series.

    "Ready for the Second!"
    If you could sum up Chained in three words, what would they be?

    Awesome, wonderful, exciting!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the main characters and dialogues and how they were presented. The way the book ended left me wanting more. I'm on watch for the second installment.


    What does Eric Burns bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator was awesome. I would definitely listen to another book he narrates.

    Story
    "Multifaceted"

    This story led me on a merry chase. First I would be with one family then I was with another. I went from one girl rescueing another from rape and murder to a bath and dinner in another kingdom with another family. The characters were very well developed as well as the scenes but the story left me confused. Although I did like the ending. You can't go wrong when love has the final say so.
    I was given this book for an honest review via audiobook blast.
