Great story, love the characters and the author. Goes w/ Love at First Sight.
In 1066 Cyning, Saxon Lady Roscelyn cannot believe the disgusting chutzpah of her odious new husband Cerdic. On their wedding night, Cerdic tried to seduce his newlywed's nine-year-old sister. Roscelyn thinks she might just have to murder her spouse. However, before she can put a plan in motion, the Saxon battle cry erupts as Harold calls for an army to repel the invading Normans. Her family dies in the war.
To the victors go the spoils so King William gives Cyning to his loyal knight Varin de Brionne. Roscelyn wants to keep her people safe from Varin and his men. However instead of an arrogant barbarian, Varin surprises her by working hard with her people to improve their lot. To her chagrin, Roscelyn begins to fall in love with the nurturing Varin. He returns the feelings, but Cerdic still lives and demands what he believes is rightfully his: Cyning and Roscelyn.
Though the star-crossed lovers during William's reign have been told in novels almost as much as Adam and Eve's tale, FALLING FOR HER is an enjoyable medieval romance. The story line is fun because of the dichotomy of feelings that seem genuine. Roscelyn is a brave person wondering how she can fall in love with the hated Norman even though he is quite the charmer who obviously cares for her people's lot. Though Cerdic is so amoral that he is the only person that seems unreal, Sandra Lee, as she did with LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT, provides fans with a fabulous reading experience.
