Publisher's Summary

Jennet Graeme has witnessed terrible tragedy during the many years of strife between the Scots and the English. As Scottish invaders plunder her convent sanctuary, she defiantly resists the blond warrior who claims her as his prize. But his brute strength is overpowering, and Jennet is forced to ride with him through the lawless lands, tending to the wounded, protected and desired by a man she wants to hate but cannot.

Sir Hacon Gillard is moved by Jennet's compassion and mercy. As a loyal knight, he's pledged fealty to his king's command even as he loses his heart to this remarkable woman. He is merciless in combat, but within him burns a spark for something far beyond the heat of battle....

Contains mature themes.

Great narration. .. a story with a difference and enjoyed it. Characters come to life from the great voices of the narrator.

Not as intense as i expected.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Anyone who loves the narrator. I love hearing her read. She was the only good thing about the book.

Has Conqueror's Kiss turned you off from other books in this genre?

Nope

What didn’t you like about Allison Pike’s performance?

I have heard her talebstories way better. This one she seemed bored

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Conqueror's Kiss?

I just didnt like the whole book

Not ground breaking but still very good

ground breaking? No. Good story with great narration? Yup!!

Hacon was a warring knight of scotland with a conscience. Jennet was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Hacon takes Jennet and saves her from a horrible fate although she doesn't seem to know that at first. I love the slow burn of their love and lust. I loved that together with the orphaned baby (forgot his name) they were a ragtag family and didn't even know it. Because this is a historical I wasn't shocked with the "i love him/her but don't want to be the one to tell what's in my heart because I'm not sure what's in his/hers."

Hacon was a strong leading man who wasn't a barbarian in his interactions with Jennet. Jennet was hilariously sharp witted and I adored her spunk. I wish we got to "see" someone put Catherine in her place because she was a mega biotch that needed a good smackdown. I get that she was hurting but good lord woman, grieve and move on and stop making everyone miserable.

story - 3.5
narrator - 4 She was very enjoyable and if I didn't know any better I would have SWORN it was Angela Dawe. Who knows it just may be her under a pseudonym
