Bertrice Smallhas written thirty novels of historical romance and two erotic novellas. She is a New York Times bestselling author and the recipient of numerous awards. In keeping with her profession, Bertrice Small lives in the oldest English-speaking town in the state of New York, founded in 1640.

They have a son, Thomas, a daughter-in-law, Megan, and two adorable grandchildren, Chandler David and Cora Alexandra. Longtime readers will be happy to know that Nicki the Cockatiel flourishes along with his fellow housemates, Pookie, the long-haired greige and white, Honeybun, the petite orange lady cat with the cream-colored paws, and Finnegan, the black long-haired baby of the family, who is almost two.

Format: Paperback
Mairin lost her mother when she was born, but soon her father came and took her from Ireland to England where she lived as the apple of his eye until the wicked stepmother came along. Nothing limited Blanche's hatred of her stepchild, and when Mairin's father died, Blanche immediately sold her to a slaver, thinking the little girl will soon be lost in far away Turkey; and she would have been, if a kindly Englishman had not seen her and bought her as a replacement for his own dead child.
Mairin and her servant, Dagda, truly are at home with her new family. Her adoptive parents and brother love her immediately, and when she is of marriageable age, a wedding to a Byzantine prince is planned. Before she can truly become Basil's wife, he is killed by a past lover. Sent home, Mairin manages the estate left to her when her father and brother die in the wars until Josselin, a knight of the Conquerer's, comes and to claim both her home and heart. However, Mairin's beauty of body and soul has won another man's heart, a dangerous Viking who will stop at nothing to have her.
*** Once more, Ms Small has penned a fairy tale for adults. Though both hailed and critisized for her use of sensuality, I would not term her books erotic. Passion is kept within appropriate bounds, as a symbol of love, not pure lust. Mairin, like all of her heroines, has a gallantry that would shame one of the knights, yet is feminine in every way. ***

Format: Paperback
I have always enjoyed Bertrice Small's book. They are written with such flare and feeling. She pulls the reader right along with her heroines in the story. We not only read, but feel the story along with the characters. This story is no different. The lives of Small's characters never follow the normal path, but go along different paths, that one would normally not think of. This story is not any different. You begin to think that it is a fairy tale about a child with a wicked stepmother. Who is sold to a slaver. That would be the end of a life, but no. Her life gets better, not worse and things happen that you would never imagine. There is love scenes, but they are part of the story, not put in because the writer needs to fill space. If you like a different romanic story that you can not put down, you will not be disappointed with this or any other of Bertrice Small's books.

Format: Paperback
I think when the author cooked up this book, her recipe was this: Take a huge pile of schmaltz. Add way too much sugar, till it's sickly-sweet in places, and a handful of nuts. Stir unevenly. Leave it half-baked, and serve barely lukewarm, never hot.

Forgive me if I find the result of this recipe too hard to swallow!

Where do I start in explaining why I detest this book so much? Okay, let's begin with the heroine, Mairin. She is constantly vaunted as being perfect, incredibly beautiful, intelligent and good -- and I mean CONSTANTLY, like on every page. EVERYONE she meets fawns on her and praises her. She herself even thinks about how beautiful she is, and mentions her beauty to others. Okay, I'll admit it, I'm not fond of vain women. But more to the point, I hate praise that isn't deserved. I didn't think she was the least bit perfect. In fact, I thought her as far from perfect as Pluto is from the sun, at least in the brains and personality departments. She came off as dumb and dull, sometimes to the extreme. Getting back to her alleged beauty, though, I was REALLY revolted by the fact that so many men were said to have coveted her in the first hundred pages of the book, during which time she was aged between five and thirteen years old. The way her beauty is described in those pages is in an adult way, in terms of sensuality...I mean, ick, she's just a little kid! She was sold into slavery with lewd intentions at age five, married at thirteen and first made love to, more or less, at fourteen...am I the only one who thinks it's wrong in a romance book to have a child doing these sorts of things, especially with much older men? Also, at age five Mairin made very long speeches full of very long words...she did not at any point sound like a five year old.

I like the way Bertrice Small injects her romance with a lot of historical background, unlike many romance authors. I REALLY REALLY REALLY could have used without the word enchantress being used every other page or more often ... I KNOW the title, use the phrase once or twice but it was so overused it was irritating and detracted from an otherwise good book
