Bound to the Warrior

GIVEAWAY

PHINNEY, BARBARA
BOUND TO THE WARRIOR

A Heart Unconquered

Widowed Saxon Lady Ediva Dunmow will do anything to protect her people—even marry one of the invading Norman knights. The king sees it as a way to keep Ediva, her lands and her tenants subdued. But Ediva's embittered heart, still healing from the abuse of her first husband, will not yield so easily. Marriage never held any appeal for Adrien de Ries. Yet it is his king's will, and perhaps his Lord's, too—though he finds his faith tested daily by Ediva's staunch refusal to trust him. As a knight, Adrien survived many battles, but the fight to win Ediva's heart may be his most challenging—and rewarding.

My Review:

I do love a great medieval romance and this one is exceptional! It has all the elements I love in a good historical. The author managed to transfer me back in time with her measured descriptions and character dialogue. Neither was overdone. Rather she used these techniques to add flavour to an already savory plot. A forced marriage, political intrigue and two lost souls at cross purposes. I couldn't put Bound to the Warrior down and I bet you won't be able to either.

  2. There are not enough castles on Christian book covers to make me happy--I could almost care less what the blurb is, castles are awesome. :)

  4. Hey Debbie, fancy meeting you here! Good luck!

    I agree Melissa. Not enough castles in Christian Fiction and there's so much scope for imagination in them, isn't there? Especially for the romantic at heart. Good luck!

    Interesting that you mentioned her hair, Amy. Definitely plays a part in the story. :-) Good luck!
