Beautiful Melisant Crispin and handsome, arrogant Wulfric, the future Earl of Shefford, are engaged -- and seldom has a betrothed couple been less suited. Or so they think!
I love anything by Johanna Lindsey. She is an excellent author!!
I liked the story, but the picture was the ugliest guy around. Who do they hire to draw these pictures!
All Lindsey books are wonderful!
got lost in parts of the book
A betrothal has been announced that will join together Britain's two most powerful families -- a union of wealth and influence to rival even the King's himself. But not only does the dangerously ambitious King John oppose this wedding, but Milisant and Wulfric -- the intended bride and groom --are equally unhappy with the arrangement. Two passionate, headstrong people, they resent being thrown together for purely dynastic reasons. But fate's many twists and turns -- and the unpredictable predilections of two unconquerable hearts -- will turn an unwanted marriage of convenience into a true and eternal joining of desire and love.
One of the world's best-loved authors of historical romance, Hohanna Lindsey once again weaves her magical spell in a magnificent tale of an unlikely couple divided by the prospects of an arranged marriage - but destined to share the deepest union.
I got this off the quarter shelf at the library. I didn't enjoy this as much as I have her other books, but it was still good.
wonderful story,usual for J.Lindsey
This is one of the best and most interesting of this type (13th Century) of book that I have ever read. Generally I prefer Regency, however this held my attention to the very end!
Betrothed as children, meeting as children, they both distrusted and disliked each other. Years later, their first meeting is still keeping them apart. When his father insists that he collect his bride-to-be, Wulfric agrees, and rides to her father's keep. Milisant has been allowed to dress as a boy, ride as a boy, and hunt as a boy, and fight as a boy, and knows almost no lady-like behavior. Wulfric is appalled, and doesn't know how she will be able to perform her duties as his wife, and hopes that if he takes her home to his mother, that she may be able to learn. But, someone is trying to kill Milisant before the wedding can take place.
Beautiful Milisant Crispin and handsome, arrogant Wulfric, the future Earl of Shefford, are engaged-and seldom has a betrothed couple been less suited. Her father has decreed that Milisant has a month to accustom herself to the future earl before the marriage takes place. As the time dwindles, Milisant desperately searches for a way out. But Wulfric is falling under a spell himself, cast by the proud, strong woman who will be pledged to him against her will in a few short days. And even as the joining of these two young people raws nearer, so too does a threat of danger which could destroy much more than a planned ceremony.
