Book Description

When the emperor chooses a husband for Rochelle, she tries to drive her betrothed away, but by the time she realizes she might want to keep him, she has been too successful and other forces are dividing them as well.

Rochelle of Alda, a feisty Frank aristocrat, expects to continue her industrious life managing her family’s estate. When her emperor summons her to the palace to meet the skilled soldier she is required to marry, Rochelle engages in a battle for independence from David of Bavaria. As her own deceptions multiply, she suspects another of also plotting against their marriage. To her surprise, and too late, David’s passion and patience begin to win her heart. Can their love survive the tangled web of her schemes and the secret adversary David refuses to see?

A warrior hero and an innocent heroine meet in a whirling romance set in Charlemagne's Empire.

About the Author

The most interesting fact about Jill Hughey is that she can sing really, really high. As in opera-singer high. But she only does that when she is not writing, working part time as a business administrator, running her two teenaged sons around, and enjoying the support of her wonderful husband. Her ideal afternoon is spent sitting on her front porch with an iced coffee as she moves the characters in her head into her laptop. Happy reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! January 15, 2012

This book is very well written with authentic historical details, a fast paced plot with surprising twists, beautifully developed characters, and a many faceted love story! My thanks to Amazon for making Unbidden available in eBook format! I was able to download it to my Kindle, and by the end of Chapter One I was hooked and couldn't put it down! Book Two in the series promises to be equally fascinating, and I'm looking forward to more books by this author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good!!! March 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The description provided is right on! Rochelle was very spoiled, and at the age of 19 had been running her family estate for 3 years. She was very successful and hard working. However, when the Emperor becomes aware of a young woman running an estate near an area that he wants protected for his youngest son, he selects a warrior to be her husband. I feel that Rochelle has let her past independence, total freedom from any type of control become ingrained to the point that no one could have control over her life except her.

Well when she was finally brought face to face with the Emperor I held my breath because I thought this was not going to go well at all.

David, the warrior selected by the emperor to be Rochelle's husband, was such a good man. He was so excited that he had been selected by the emperor to wed Rochelle, a beautiful woman, a heiress, and a large estate that would be his upon the marriage.

Rochelle though had other plans, even though after a time David started getting through to her, the fact that he was being forced upon her just went against her very being. That this situation she found herself in was not of her doing, and she was losing control of her life. So then she comes up with ideas to regain control over her life once again, just as it had been before.

There are other bad guys who are wanting David down and out also. Poor David, Poor David, my head was swimming with all the bad things that were happening to him. He should have been nominated for sainthood. He definitely did not deserve what he got.

It was a very exciting story and a great book to get all comfy with and let it take you back to the 9th century. Kudos to Jill Hughey.

This fast paced read is well written and well thought out. A true historical romance novel filled with intrigue, drama, and love twists, Unbidden was hard to put down. Thanks to the author and publisher for putting in Kindle format so readers can access it immediately! Looking forward to the next saga with Rochelle and David.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just okay. January 7, 2015
By Lilybug
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I started the book I liked it a lot, but as it went on, Rochelle got on my nerves so many times trying to keep her independence, I started to really dislike her. David is so blind, he got on my nerves too. It got to where I just wanted it to end. Another thing, the language is like modern day, not 9th century. I don't know exactly how they spoke back then, but I know it wasn't like we do in the 21st century. Try it, you might like it-I really didn't care for it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Story line was very good. September 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
BUT I don't like "racy" stories. I don't like the explicit writing for hot scenes. Had I not enjoyed the characters and story line I would not have finished the book nor the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars TRUE LOVE WINS IN THE END September 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The setting is in the year 893, however the problems this lovers face happens even now. The author explains everything happening so vivid making that you are there. During the Tournament I could see the knights fighting to win at all cost. I enjoyed reading this particular book even tho love scenes were not too descriptive but genuine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Irritated with the Heroine!! May 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm trying to figure out what all the 5 star reviews are about...At 56% read of the book I had to give it up. Rochelle is so irritating in her feelings for David that she really is what is called a tease. David was so sweet and honest and was trying to do all that he could to make this ridiculous heroine see what a great match they were and how it would benefit both of them, but she was stuck on this control mindset.

I will say that what I read was well written and I tried so hard to finish the book because of David, but I couldn't get past the immaturity of the heroine. It literally was the story of a man being in love with a teenager..
