The plot is reminiscent of so many that have gone before, but with the addition of a light paranormal aspect, tenuously connected to pagan beliefs of the Anglo-Saxons. Emma is the Lady of Ravenwood, given in marriage to the fearsome knight William l'Orage in return for his service to the king. His experiences in the Crusades have given him a reputation and made him a hard man, but he is seeking to settle in a home and have a family. Too bad his wife is not looking to cooperate. This story is about the path to love for both of them, with episodes of jealousy, misunderstanding, treacherous neighbors, covetousness of position and more impacting their happiness.
The characters would have been better served by a little more narrative dedicated to thoughts and actions outside the bedchamber. I wanted a deeper story related to the treachery subplot. But, like certain of Chaucer's archetypes, there is a determined focus on matters between the sexes. As Chaucer said, "For certain, old dotard, by your leave, you shall have plenty of the precious thing in the evening." Well, William is a most determined and ardent soldier as he storms Emma's battlements.
Received from NetGalley for an honest review.
William, her husband ordered by the king, is not interested in love. He was betrayed once before by a woman and believes the curse is simply foolishness. He desires Emma, maybe more than any other woman he has met. William believes he can seduce Emma into accepting him in her bed, whether he loves her or not. But there are forces that neither Emma nor William understand at work that want to harm the couple.
This book hit all my favorites: medieval time period, passionate love scenes, sexy hero and more. Emma and William were perfect for each other, even if it took them some time to figure it out. I love a hot, steamy romance and this one had it. The only complaint I could express is the timing of the inevitable consummation and how hurtful William's words were to Emma. Other than that, this book was darn close to perfection! I hope Ms. Sterling continues the series and writes more steamy, medieval romances!
