I laugh out loud...and that is a rare gift to move people to such laughter.
J. Marshall
Although this book is hillarious the characters are never stupid, which makes her novels different from many others!
Lisabeth Vefall
There were numerous secondary characters that added a full body lushness to this very funny, medieval mystery.

Lynsay Sands is proving book after book she is a writer to be watched
with deft, crafts and natural voice, she weaves a medieval tale that
captures the reader from the very start. As she did in The Deed,
The Key and Always, she conjures characters that will live in your
heart long after the book is put down.
Hugh is the new 5th Earl of Hillcrest, the Earldom coming through to
him upon his uncle's death. The only provision he must meet is his
uncles request he marry Willa. Hugh presumed the girl who lives
in the cottage with the local witch, to be the biblow daughter of his
uncle and he is insulted his uncle tried to force such a match.
And, being typically male, he insults Willa by informing
he has no wish to marry the illegitimate daughter of his uncle.
To his horror, he later learn he does not have to marry Willa if
he does not want, and he will still be Earl of Hillcrest - just all
the money goes with Willa. No marriage, no money to run the
vast estate. Hugh has none of his own, since my father lost
their family fortunate a decade earlier, so in order to keep
Hillcrest he must marry Willa.
But then, Hugh is finding that option less repugnant as
time passes, for Willa is a beautiful young woman with a heart
gold. Hugh must quickly earn her hand in marriage in order
to save all. This task is complicated by the preditions of the
witch, who tells Willa if she does not hold out until Hugh
crawls on his belly to her, though they wed, Hugh will be
murdered within a month. She holds out and thinks
all will be well, but the witch warns there are many
evil forces at work that could see either of them dead.

If you really want to laugh and enjoy a wonderful romance, this is the book for you. It is truly hilarious and, I have to admit, I began to feel sorry for poor Sir Hugh. He truly does suffer some trials and tribulations trying to win back the fair Willa (who was just waiting to fall in his lap until he opened his mouth and called her a nasty name!). His inept efforts lead to some great comedy material!
I want sequels for some of the supporting characters - they are much too wonderful to leave behind. Especially Sir Hugh's effeminate courtier cousin who fights like a very manly warrior. More to him than he is letting on! With a little work his book could be just as wonderful as this one!
Thanks to Lynsay Sands for another great one!

I am the male half of the management at WISE Writers and Readers, so I occasionally step out of the shadows and review a book I enjoy. Lynsay's newest is a wonderfully warm and touching romp. Her characters are vivid, and such tenderhearted people. And her writing is so funny. I always been so cheerful after reading her books. I laugh out loud...and that is a rare gift to move people to such laughter.
Highly recommended.

After finishing Lady Pirate, I could hardly wait to read this one. And when I started, I simply couldn't put it down.
It all takes place in the begining of the 13th century when Earl Hugh Dulonget of Hillcrest's uncle dies and the will says he must marry a girl called Willa. He goes to see her, but leaves after calling her a peasant. Soon he realizes he must marry her. Refusing to listen to any advice, he sets his mind to making her need him and that way she would forgive him and marry him. It is harder than he thought and if she would reconsider, would they live happily ever after?
The characters in Lynsay's books are strong individuals, both the males and females. But she also makes them very realistic and clever. The females are independant, but still emotional and caring. Although this book is hillarious the characters are never stupid, which makes her novels different from many others! She has her own way of mixing history, romance, humour and realism that works wonderfully and I'm very impressed with the works I've read by her so far! Can't wait to read more!!
I love this book, it's such a great read. Wonderful entertainment if you love romance novels or rarely read them. Filled with humor and strong minded characters makes it a huge hit. I don't know how many times I laughed out loud because of certain scenes or comments, it's a howl!!
I highly recommend this book to everyone. One of the best books I've read actually. Lynsay is a brilliant writer!!

I know that I am in the minority, but honest, I'm not one of those "spoilers' who has to harshly critique great books. I really love Lynsay Sands humor, but I just didn't think this was that funny. I smiled a few times, but as for that laugh out loud humor that Sands is famous for..this isn't the book.

Maybe it was the whole witch theme, maybe it was Willa that I just never really "got" with her wolves for friends and cluelessness, maybe it was Hugh who so stupidly went about trying to court Willa, or maybe it was the long, drawn out explanation of her origins that left me skimming to end the misery as quick as possible.....whatever it was, I can't recommend this book.

I do recommend this author. My favorite book of hers is "Bliss". Now that is romantic comedy if I've ever read it. Skip this one and try that one first...you won't be sorry.
