The hero and heroine were good. The storyline and plot was good. I did read all of it and enjoyed it. However a few things annoyed me. One the author could not keep the days and seasons straight. Example, in one paragraph the heroine had been there for weeks and then a later paragraph says she has only been there seven days. And again, after two weeks and darker weather; only to say in next paragraph, one spring day and spring was breaking...Next two paragraphs food had been brought to her each of the seven days she had been there... Then suddenly the last warm day of the year before winter.. You get my meaning. There was a lot of skipping from spring to winter in a matter of days or a week? or two? Also I found it quite disturbing that he never mentioned hos Mother again or talked about going after her. I am sure there could have been a way! The story is okay just choppy and confusing in some parts...

The was just awful! I agree with one "prislovesromance" reviewer. This author/editor/publisher are blind. No clue what time of year it was; either spring / winter or two weeks has passed no wait it was 7 days?!! Really!!! What kind of writing is this. Lets not forget that she is Anglo-Saxon and he's Norman for the Thousand time. (read up to 29%). OMG! Avis hates Melville but she was upset that she is in a separate bedroom but then remembers she hates him. My favorite part (your going to love this) Avis is Anglo-Saxon, born and lived in the same location (Anglo-Saxon, England) She learns the language of the Normans after being taken over (home /land)for 3 years (one hopes its 3 years) yet Melville is SURPRISED that she speaks other than Norman. REALLY!!! What did I just read! Then she has to explain "Melville don't you understand I'm Anglo-Saxon! I'm one of them!" then she cries and he comforts her. Now don't forget Melville hates Anglo-Saxon and Avis hates Norman. That is what your in for when you down load this FREE book and that's up until 29%. I have Stopped and I am returning the FREE book. lol

For me, this should have been named "Harlequin Romance Conquests". The story line was the formulaic tall, dark, handsome man and small, pale, blond, gorgeous woman who hate each other are forced to marry and then fall in love while finding as many ways as possible to misunderstand each other. There was virtually no character development or actual plot beyond the romance and a lot of it was repetitive. The "historical" aspect and relationships to other characters was perfect for a Disney movie - everyone loves the hero and heroine and each other and all want to live in a modern, egalitarian society - in 1066! Puh-lease.

The story is not the worst I've read, but there truly isn't anything to call to me about it. The way the story is written feels pretty stiff, especially on the first chapters, and it's difficult to like either of main characters since -while possessing redeemable qualities- they mostly act like kids who have missed one too many naps. Their affection for one another is slowly developed, but it still comes out of nowhere and at points is pretty unbelievable. I wish there was a way to give 2.5 stars, since it's not horrible, but giving it three would imply I liked it- and I didn't. It was a chore to finish.

This book SERIOUSLY needs a good CONTENT editor. The internal inconsistencies mentioned by other reviewers are evident. It appears to be so long that the author has forgotten things about her protagonists. Hero can't read or write and doesn't know Latin, but is able to write to the Pope. Hum. ALSO it does seem unlikely that the men in this book are as wimpy and lacking in testosterone as they would have to be to behave as they do. All in all, seems like a self-published work of a middle schooler. Not worth down loading at any price. If free, don't waste your time.

Honestly, this book has no saving grace. There is nothing to commend it. Maybe others could enjoy it, but it was so bland, and just so annoying to read.

Hopefully, the author tries a bit harder in her next book.

I really enjoyed reading this story, and fell in love with the characters as they fell in love with each other. The author did an excellent job weaving in the historical context, and giving a human, narrative element to the wars and conflicts of this era. I will enjoy reading this story again and again, taking the journey of growth, trusting others again, and healing alongside Melville and Avis. If you like history and enjoy a good romance, buy this book!

This was slow moving and I couldn't get into it. I finally deleted it from my Kindle without finishing it.
