In 1263 England, survival makes for strange bedfellows. As she peers from her tower at Colmaine Castle, Lady Alyce Fitzmartin looks down at the approaching male she is to marry that night. She wants nothing to do with the arrogant London tradesman she has never met, but he is the only answer to paying off her father's massive debts. Internally, she vows to be his bride, but to never give him her heart.

As he approaches Colmaine Castle to marry a stranger tonight, Robert

Wardell wonders how anyone could sell his daughter. He wants nothing to do with marriage, especially to an arrogant Lady, but has no choice if he is to survive the rising tensions between the Crown and his rebellious enemies. He looks to his new bride as his ticket to safety. He swears to himself that he will make her his wife, but she will never gain his heart.

Awesome Anne Avery is renowned for her passionate historical romance, but this time she even outdoes her own level of excellence. BARTERED BRIDE is a fast-paced, action-packed tale that will stimulate the reading public. The characters are warm, charming, and simply wonderful as they struggle with their internal vows, their growing passion and love for one another, and a country on the brink of civil war. Ms. Avery has raised the bar of excellence above the six-sigma levels of quality.
