Book Description
A Russian countess and an English cavalier set each other aflame and shake a royal court to its foundations. Fans of such epic best sellers as Ashes in the Wind and Shanna will agree that no other writer offers such richly drawn romance or such robust, flesh-and-blood characters. Three years in the writing, Forever in Your Embrace continues the great Woodiwiss tradition, plunging you into the hot-blooded, tempestuous world of Europe four centuries ago. There, in the depths of a forest, the beautiful and fiercely independent Countess Synnovea suffers a rude interruption in her travels, the arrival of a band of brigands! Robbery and rape seem inevitable. Then, out of nowhere, a royal officer rides to Synnovea's rescue, only to disappear again before she has even thanked him. Who was he? Synnovea gets the answer a few hours later at a roadside inn, when she inadvertently steps naked into a bathhouse pool that's already occupied by her rescuer! By the time she learns he is Sir Tyrone Rycoft, a British soldier of fortune, she has been piqued by his bold, swaggering ways, and has aroused in him a passion he had long since forsworn. Though neither of them can know it yet, from now on their fates will be inseparable, during intrigues at court, wars abroad, and one great, explosive scandal.

When Synnovea's wards try to marry her off to an old man, Synnovea looks to Colonel Rycroft to ruin her reputation and prevent the match. Her deceit, however, turns the love the Colonel felt for her into rage, and she must live with the consequences of her actions or try to win his heart again.

This is the standard Woodiwiss fare: tempestuous and well done. Synnovea is not one of my favorite Woodiwiss characters, but our cheers go to the Colonel. As usual, a lively side character, Natasha, adds some spark to an otherwise lackluster story line.
