From back cover:
"LADY GENEIEVE. Proud and beautiful, she vowed to save the castle of Edenby through a single, dangerous act of passion- offering her hand in marriage to the invading enemy she despised...

LORD TRISTIAN. One of England's most fearsome knights, he realized the Lady was plotting his death. And yet, faced with her enchanting beauty and fiery spirit, he knew he must possess her, at any cost...

Theirs was a destiny of love and war, passion and intrigue. Torn by the raging fury of a turblent age, and the searing desires of their own hearts, the Lady and the Knight dared to embrace the most treacherous love of all..."

I enjoyed this book. Lady Geneieve tried to kill Tristian one night when she promised to give him sex one night. He was presumed dead, but wasn't, came back from the grave, literally, and held her captive in her own tower. There's a little rape involved, but an enjoyable read.

Started out well but about 2/3 of the way through slowed to pretty much a hault. Still, a decent middle ages romance.

from back of book:

The willful and beautiful Lady Genevieve would do anything to save her beloved Edenby Castle.... even if she had to share the name -and bed- of her most treacherous foe.

He was Lord Tristan, nobleman and knight. Magnificent in battle, he would lead his invading army across the land, only to become captive to the sensual charms of the bold enchantress who was secretly plotting his destruction.

They were born to be enemies and destined to be lovers- players in a perilous game of intrigue and passion where the price was one woman's innocence... and the prize was one man's heart.
