Alone in the world, save for the band of misfits she has adopted along her journey to Faulkhurst Castle, Lady Eleanor Bayard believes in miracles and happily ever afters.

Putting aside the pain of her proxy wedding to a ruthless warrior who died in battle before he claimed his bride, Eleanor is determined to make a home of her husband's rundown castle. Little does she expect to encounter the brooding and tender-hearted knight who watches over Faulkhurst, a mysterious man who vows to protect her with his life.

Haunting the deserted parapets and towers of Faulkhurst, Lord Nicholas Bayard lives with the constant pain of his loss. Believing the wife he never knew perished in the plague, Nicholas is dumbfounded when she wanders into the gates of Faulkhurst, sunshine and laughter trailing in her wake.

Under the impression that Nicholas is a lonely knight seeking shelter, Eleanor bids him stay on as her steward, drawn to him in ways she cannot fathom, little knowing the warrior is her husband.

Deeply intense, richly textured in emotion and colorful characterization, THE MAIDEN BRIDE is a tale to savor.

I really enjoyed the main characters in this book. It's a historical with a strong-willed but not stupid woman. The hero is also strong, but carries a soul tortured by his past. He wants the woman but resists which is a nice turn-around.

Widowed, Lady Eleanor arrives at the castle of the husband she never met, ruthless warlord Nicholas Bayard. As she explores, a huge shadow overtakes her in the darkness of the tower: an intruder who commands her to leave his castle. Eleanor informs him that she is the wife of the late Lord Nicholas. Shocked to realize that the bride he'd thought had died in the Plague is not only alive, but beautiful and bold, Nicholas hides his identity. But Eleanor is a temptation he cannot resist, and when she learns his true identity, she shows him that love is the greatest miracle of all.Widowed, Lady Eleanor arrives at the castle of the husband she never met, ruthless warlord Nicholas Bayard.
