Chandra de Avenell might look like a golden princess, but she fights like a warrior, dreams a warrior’s dreams, and wears a warrior’s pride like a suit of armor. She wants to be strong, independent, and free. She has no use at all for a husband. Enter the man her father has selected for her. Jerval de Vernon takes one look at Chandra, and he wants her. After he saves her from a very bad situation, he sets himself to wooing her—not an easy task.
How does a man convince a woman he coerces into marriage to become a wife? To give him her loyalty and trust? Love is something he would like her to consider as well. But what if the wife has no intention of cooperating? Does he break her or finally give up to her?

reviews for fun
The narrator helps me choose the book. Anne Flosnik is an excellent narrator. I was not disappointed with her performance with this book at all. The author was trying to portray an independent woman who could hold her own as a fighter. Unfortunately she did not give this heroin a brain. I have a problem with stupid acting, self serving female characters in books who put many people in jeopardy because of their childish acts. If you want to portray an independent woman, then also give her a brain. Plus the second half of the book made it feel disconnected from the first half. I only gave 3 stars.
