reviewed The Bride's Portion (Baldwin Brides, Bk 1) (Harlequin Historical, No 266) on
Lillis of Wellewyn was the most beautiful woman Alexsander Baldwin had ever seen. His younger twin brothers had kidnapped her and thought that he would be pleased by their resourcefulness because Lillis was the daughter of his most hated enemy, Jaward of Wellewyn.
Lillis had spent the last 10 years of her life in a convent and was anxious to get home, now she was being held prisoner by this hateful person who was undeniably handsome and already betrothed to a beautiful cousin. In order to save his people from ruin because of her father's demented anger Lillis was forced to wed this man, so that he could gain her 'bride's portion' which was the land and river that her father had dammed up.

What follows is an absolutely wonderful tale of wheeling and dealing medeival style. This was a very fast moving story, with many plots and subplots that were skillfully woven together and tied up so quite nicely.

I really enjoyed this story, my first by this author and I look forward to reading the rest she has to offer

The daughter of his enemy..
Lillis of Wellewyn was the most beautiful woman Alexander had ever seen.. A Bride out of Legend. Yet never could he claim her as his own, for he had vowed to let her go when the last of his people were free from her father's tyranny.
Alexander Baldwin was know as an honorable knight, yet to Lillis he was nothing more that a bully who had married her for her dowered lands. A man who had not only made her his prisoner, but had slowly, and ruthlessly, stolen her heart.
