When the Normans invade and sweep across Saxon England in 1066, lovely Aislinn of Darkenwald watches her father murdered outside her home. Wulfgar, the Iron Wolf of Normandy, arrives to rule Darkenwald, and one look at Aislinn leads him to claim her as his own. She hates the Norman conquering forces, but Wulfgar awakens a consuming passion in her that she can't deny. As she struggles with her growing love for Wulfgar, she does what she can to aid her conquered people and her bereaved mother. But a jealous lord conspires with Wulfgar's spoiled half-sister and Aislinn's very life is threatened before Wulfgar can admit that the woman he conquered has in truth, conquered his heart. This beloved historical romance deserves a special place on the shelves of millions of romance readers and shouldn't be missed.

This is a classic medieval love story . Some parts may be offensive to some, as the hero "forces" heroine at first and "claims" her as his own. More true to the times than some medievals are, I believe.
I thought it was very good.

Back in the 70s I read my Kathleen Woodiwiss books over and over again. I started with the Flame and the Flower, and then Shanna, and then I found Wolf and the Dove.

Wolf and the Dove became my favorite- as well as my favorite time period. This was my first experience with the time period of William the Conqueror, and I learned alot reading it. Woodiwiss' novels are full of detail for the time period, and very accurate, as far as I can see.

Her heroes are strong and don't show emotion. By today's standards, perhaps not the most enlightened male characters that we romance junkies are accustomed to-- but this was the 70s and the 80s-- for its time period- the best.

My biggest misunderstanding in this novel was what happened to divide Wulfgar from his Saxon family-- and why he was considered a Norman conqueror and his family considered vanquished Saxons.

I read this book in no time. Kathleen Woodiwiss tells a great story and keeps it moving from page to page. I was never bored and couldn't wait to read each day.

All the books that Woodiwiss writes are very good and with much detail, however a little bit too long. She starts all her books right to the point. I enjoyed it.
