Sexy medieval. I love CMs books! They remind me why I got hooked on Romance Novels.
From the back:
The Dragon Lord had no desire to wed an heiress he had never before seen. But a landless knight had few opportunities to win a barony, and a faithful subjecft had no choice but to obey his king. Yet how to select a wife from the three women offered him?
I loved this book. It was halarious how he chose one bride, but was fooled into marrying the other.
In one horrifying hour, Rose of Ayrdale's life was shattered. Lord Dragon, one of King John's fiercest knights, brought the news that Rose's father was dead and revealed that he had been commanded to marry the traitor's widow or daughter and claim the estate.
Rose was certain that neither her grieving mother nor Starla, her twin sister who longed to become a nun, could bear to wed Lord Dragon. But it was equally clear that their new lord had no wish to bind himself to a defiant maiden like Rose. Convincing the Dragon that Rose was the name of the sweet-tempered, biddable twin he was inclined to wed was accomplished in a matter of moments. Fortunately the deception did not have to last long. Indeed, before the hour was over, fiery Rose had subdued her true nature long enough to convince the Dragon it was her sister he'd wed -- and had seen her mother and gentle sister on their way to the sanctuary of a nearby convent.
Though she feared the Dragon's wrath when he discovered her pretense, Rose was content with the fruit of her labors -- and pleased to have taken at least this small vengeance against her unwanted overlord. She'd be surprised to realize that the Dragon was already wondering if he'd been too hasty in sending the spitfire to the convent and taking the timid twin to wife -- for he is a man of powerful passions who would find the spirited Rose a perfect match.
There are no dragons in this story, just an overbearing man who doesn't want the woman who wants him. I don't like the lying, so I'm trading the book.
Why the man has to marry for land, and the woman forced to marry?? Glad I didn't have to do that.
I love Connie Mason and this was a really great love story.
