Set in the Middle Agees. Heroine evolves from a short, voluptuous mouse to a short, voluptuous firebrand. In either case, she is an heiress with a nasty guardian, who she is determined to escape from. Her adventures lead to her meeting her match with lots of thrills and chills. Very likeable characters leave me wanting to know what happened to the rest of the cast.
Known as a wolf on the prowl, the Baron of Wessex finds the the one woman who can stop his endless roaming
Though Marion Warenne's past was but a dim nightmare, her present held a vision of glory--the formidable Dunstan de Burgh. A fierce knight who was determined to win their battle of wills, all the while protesting mightily that he believe not in love...
Dunstan de Burgh, Baron of Wessex, had ofttimes heard himself likened to a wolf on the prowl: fierce, brave and ever-alert to danger. How so then, could one soft-eyed damsel escape his watchful eye time and again" And even more dangerous, sip past his guard and find her way into his heart?
Though Marion Warenne's past was but a dim night mare, her present held a vision of glory-the formidable Dunstan de Burgh. A fierce knight who determine to win their battle of wills, all the while protestng he was not in love.
When Lady Marion goes to a convent to seek refuge from her vicious guardian, Harold Peasely, her group is attacked. The knights of Campion, two of the seven Burgh brothers, find her collapsed in the roadway and bring her home because she remembers nothing.
Marion finds a good home with them and serves as chatelaine until Peasely's eldest son, Dunstan arrives demanding her return.
The dastardly Peasely suggests that one of his sons marry Marion to keep her legally captive, and since Dunstan is the only brother who doesn't think of her as a sister, he is appointed the bridegroom.
Marion has no intention of letting Dunstan bully her, but a series of futile attempts at escape change the nature of their relationship. Soon it becomes apparent that only marriage can save her.
I really like this series the men are so interesting.
