CARLISHIA W. reviewed The Temptation (Medieval Knights, Bk 5) on
Helpful Score: 3
This book was advertised as a historical romance.---It was more of a book about the hero and heroine's religious beliefs than about the romance of the couple. If you like books like that, then this is the book for you. I, personally, did not care for it much.
In England of 1156, a gently bred lady was taught to obey, first her father, next her bridegroom. But ever since Eve it has been in every woman to defy any lord. And Elsbeth of Sunnandune was determined to trade the submission of the marriage bed for the serenity of the convent. Yet never did she suppose the difficulty of her task, for the husband given her was a golden knight of godly beauty and grace. His every word and look was a seduction, his every caress cause for capitulation. In this war of wills, she discovered, blood, honor, even the thrill of victory, could take on new meaning, and no matter how much time a wife spent on her knees in prayer, every path could lead into temptation.
