Book Description

An Unexpected Passion

Lady Jenova of Gunlinghorn feels she should marry, though not for love, for she vows never to entrust her heart to a man again. Then Lord Henry, her charming and devilishly handsome friend, arrives to offer his opinion on the chosen bridegroom. But when they are trapped together by a winter storm, she and Henry wildly succumb to a desire they neither anticipated nor welcomed. And suddenly Jenova must rethink her matrimonial plans.

An Unforeseen Betrothal

It was a momentary madness—and Henry cannot let one indiscretion destroy a cherished friendship! Still, the fire lit by a passionate kiss will not be extinguished, and Henry aches to taste Jenova's sweetness again and again. The only proper course is to marry her himself, though it will surely cost him his honored position at the royal court. But more importantly, how can two who share no faith in romance trust their hearts to something as perilous and unpredictable as love?

About the Author

Sara Bennett has always had an interest in history, and to survive a series of mind-numbing jobs, she turned to writing historical romance. She lives in an old house with her husband and two children in the state of Victoria, Australia, where she tries to keep the house and garden tidy, but rarely succeeds—she'd rather be writing or reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Exceptional Read By Ms. Bennett!!! October 11, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I truly enjoy the stories that Ms. Bennett pens. She creates wonderful characters and situations that draws the reader in.

Jenova and Henry share a past. They grew up together and Jenova was always kind to Henry even when her mother wanted her to keep her distance. Years have passed and Jenova married another and Henry earned his place at court. Despite these changes Jenova and Henry have remained good friends. So when Jenova sends word that she would like Henry to come to her holdings, Henry wastes no time and goes to his friend. He has no idea that this time things will be different. Very different.

Henry is handsome of face and form, trusted by the King and knights alike. When his good friend Jenova requests that he attend her he does. This widow has always had a small piece of his heart and he will do what he must for her. He is shocked when he finds out that she plans to marry again. Why he should feel this way concerns him but he puts it off. Then they take a ride and find themselves in need of shelter when a snow storm approaches. This is just the spark that needs to be set to the kindle that is their attraction. Now that he has tasted the sweetness of Jenova's kiss he wants more but she is promised to another. Will he forsake all in order to make her his bride or will he step back and allow another to call her wife?

Jenova and Henry are wonderfully constructed characters and this story is really very good. Ms. Bennett knows how to weave a story that will captivate the reader. It was entertaining to finally read Henry's story and Ms. Bennett did well by him.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful setting March 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Heartbroken Lady Jenova vows to marry again because it has been two years since her husband’s death, but she refuses to marry for love. She asks her prominent friend, Lord Henry, for help. During their search for the proper groom, they grow closer and share a passionate kiss. Unfortunately for Lord Henry, falling for Jenova could cost him his friendship as well as his position.

Sara Bennett does a wonderful job weaving a tale of characters, who for the most part scheme together to awaken Jenova’s and Henry’s feelings for one another. The English setting plays a vital role in this story and described in exquisite detail. The characters’ garb and dialects are appropriate for the time, while Jenova’s and Henry’s relationship seems quite unique. Readers will want to read the series in order, but it isn’t necessary to appreciate this final chapter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kissing the Bride August 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I though it was a good book, but once again the ending seemed rush, or not as good as it could be. It was wrapped up again with like effort on the hero's part. I liked Henry and Jenova, and they were great character. I would give in a 3.5. Still a good read, if not a great read.

3.0 out of 5 stars ... April 6, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I hope all Sara Bennet books are not this boring. I tried to get into it, and sometimes I was. But the story was...It was hard to feel connected to any of the characters. The plot was also blah, and Jenova was too impersonal.

4.0 out of 5 stars engaging Conqueror romance June 30, 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1075 England, Widow Lady Jenova asks her best friend, King William's confident Lord Henry to visit her at remote Gunlinghorn. William drops everything to travel the four days in wintry conditions to see Jenova to learn what she needs form him. There, she shocks him when she tells him that she is considering marriage after mourning the loss of her spouse for the last two years. Her chosen one is neighbor Alfric Baldessare, who would bow to her wishes and wants to know what he thinks especially since her potential groom's father demands that he be named estate guardian in the event of his son's death. Henry knows that the elder Baldessare hates him over a regal land decision so he has doubts about the match.
While riding, a sudden snowstorm sends Jenova and Henry seeking shelter. When they find refuge, they hold each other tight for some warmth, but soon make love to the shock of them both. Jenova realizes that she is in love again though has doubts after her first husband's betrayal and Henry hides his feelings. However, the elder Baldessare plays "matchmaker" when he abducts her five-year-old son to force her hand.
KISSING THE BRIDE is an engaging Conqueror romance starring delightful protagonists and wonderful secondary players to include a romance between the villain's daughter and Henry's top aid. The villain is so crazy that he seems like a caricature, but then again his actions force the lead couple to confess their inner feelings. Sara Bennett provides a fine historical that fans of the William era will treasure.
