reviewed Lord of the Manor (Harlequin Historical, No 434) on
Lady Lucinda was the widow of Richard's most villainous enemy, the man who had nearly taken his life. Yet Richard found himself in the awkward position of being the protector of Lucinda's son, Philip. With Lucinda and Philip in tow, Richard returned to his holdings, the holdings that had once suffered from the cruelty of Lucinda's husband. Despite Lucinda being his enemy's widow, however, Richard is insanely attracted to the brave woman. Can he ever forget whose wife she was, and make her his wife now?

Lady Lucinda had known the meaning of suffering. She had been married to a cruel man who beat her regularly, her family cared nothing for her, and she had gone into hiding after her husband's death to protect her son from his greedy relatives. When she petitions the court for a protector for her son, she has no idea that it will be Richard, one of the men her husband nearly killed! Richard had been kind to her while traveling, before he knew who she was, but she saw the glint of hardness in his eyes upon learning who she had married. Can she convince this man that her son is not like his father, and convince the people that she is not responsible for her husband's crimes? For those interested, other books in this series include: By King's Decree (Gerard and Ardith), By Queen's Grace (Corwin and Judith), and Knave of Hearts (Stephen and Marian).

No matter that Lady Lucinda had borne a son to the man who had almost killed him; Richard of Wilmont wanted her anyway. for the fair widow brought to him a sense of belonging...and a love so powerful it would erase the past.

His enemy's wife

No matter that the Lady Lucinda had borne a son to the man who had almost killed him, Richard of Wilmont wanted her anyway. For the fair widow brought to him a sense of belonging...and a love so powerful it would erase the past.

What could she ever be to him? Lucinda wondered. Surely a knight as chivalrous as Richard of Wilmont had worthier women than she to claim his attention. She was an outcast, and unfit as wofe for any man...!
