Publisher's Summary

A hero of the crusades, Dominic le Sabre has returned in glory and in triumph to claim his reward: the beautiful Saxon bride awarded to him by the conqueror king. But Lady Margaret of the Blackthorne cannot yield to the bold Norman invader.

The beloved daughter of a sacred tribe of the Celtic mystics, she fears an ancient curse that could bring further turmoil to her battle-scarred land...and sorrow to her marriage bed.

With a word, the lady could turn her wedding into war. But there awaits in the noble knightᅵᅵs embrace a promise of passion unbound - and a love that neither violence nor treachery can tear asunder, a love both invincible and...untamed.

©2008 Elizabeth Lowell; (P)2008 Brilliance Audio

Entertainment at it's Best!

Not your usual Historical Romance, and one of the best audiobooks I've heard in some time.

The talented Elizabeth Lowell certainly knows how to keep a listeners interest, and with Anne Flosnik's excellent narration the listener is taken through a gambit of emotions as the story takes unexpected twists and turns.

Well worth a credit, but happy to get it on sale.

Boy oh boy!

From beginning to end I was into this book. It did not disappoint. Unlike many historical romances nothing was overdone. The romance, war, crisis, etc was balanced into a most enjoyable story.

As a first book in a series it does a good job of developing interest in characters and entertains enough to make you want the next one.

Did not even finish it, waste of money!!!

I honestly cannot understand how this book has almost 4 stars??? Are we listening to the same book? The hero is the ultimate male chauvinist pig. He has been awarded an estate that comes with its teenage virgin bride to boot. Despite the many times his bride saves his skin, he keeps suspecting her of consorting with his enemy. He locks her up and wants to tame her like a falcon, forcing her to feed from his hand and see only him. Give me a bloody break!!! And of course, we are expected to believe she would fall in love with her jailor. 3.5 hrs before the story came to an end, I've decided that I've had enough of this literary garbage. I have not read any of Lowell's other books, but if I had to judge her work by this one, I will save my credits for another author.

A Bit Trite and Juvenile

While I listened to the whole book, I can't say it was worth the time or the credit. At best, it could be regarded as a way to "clean the palate" between two intense reads. Enough said.
