Merewyn of York, was illegitimate born out of a brutal rape. It is from a Norman Knight, who brutally violated her innocent mother. Her sadly mother died in childbirth, she was a good woman from a fine family. As that is what Lady Emma tells her.
Sir Alexander of Talisand the Black Wolf due to his Raven hair. His parents are Sir Renald de Pierrepont, the Red Wolf and archer, Lady Serena of Talisand.
This book centers on ward Merewyn of York, an illegitimate a a child born out of brutal rape by a Norman warrior. Her innocent mother, Inga of York. was not nobility born, but came from a the greatest sword maker in York! Sadly Inga dies in childbirth. Then Merewyn is raised by her mother's best friend Emma.
As a child of 12, Merewyn was nearly in the same predicament as her mother had been all those years before. Then a hero was born in Merewyn’s eyes. Some called him the Red Wolf's Cub, others called Black wolf due to his dark Raven hair. From that day on Sir Alex was her champion even as the girl turned into a woman. Merewyn also didn't want to depend on a rescue attempt - if ever in a dire predicament again! Besides the fact Alex left to go Squire, so was Merewyn asked to be taught the bow and arrow by Lady Serena Tailsand, expert female archer. Lady Serena is also Alex’s mother. Rhondi and Fia completed Merewyn's training in Wales. She now wore archers garb now and is one of best archers around.
Alex a favorite Knight and respected warrior returns home with his two friends Rory and Guy. His attraction to Merewyn is immediate and all consuming!
Now a woman Merewyn knew of Alex’s reputation as a ladies man. Plus she was a realist, knowing they would never be equal in status. In addition, she knew like his father, the King wanted to conquer the Norman lands. The best way to do that was through a marriage alliance.
Merewyn just didn't see her worth. She is the finest archer, plus one of the most beautiful woman in the land. As soon as Alex came home and saw Merewyn as a woman - he instantly wanted her. He knew she wasn't a woman for a fast tumble. As they got reacquainted again, he saw her intelligence, strength concentration in chess and supreme talent as an archer. He knew she was the only woman for him.
The problem is the King has already picked a bride for him. One who was known to get rid undesirable husbands under suspicious circumstances. This woman also see’s Merewyn as a threat. Will she be in danger? Besides the fact all the Kings lecherous men seem to want the beautiful young archer, including a Wales Prince!
Will Alex and Merewyn have their HEA? Or is it doomed before it even begins - with an unwanted arranged noble alliance through marriage?
Plus with war around the corner there's always a chance Alex might not even survive. Plus Merewyn has to make s decision and is totally clueless when it comes to Alex.
Another Regan Walker fast paced page turning novel. It is full of surprises and upheaval, not knowing what to expect next. Again, weaving true history and a captivating star crossed romance. Picturesque settings, quick paced plots and breathtaking dialogue.
I Highly recommend readers check out King’s Knight and get totally swept away! You can read as a stand alone or in series order. Just more fun to read this entire mesmerizing and captivating (Medieval Warriors) series which I have absolutely loved!
I particularly enjoyed this book because it is set in one of my favourite time periods, in England in the years following the Norman conquest. The author has clearly done her research and portrays the period accurately, with no historical inaccuracies to jar the reader out of the story.
Merewyn, the heroine, is the illegitimate daughter of a Saxon woman raped by a Norman knight. As such she is seen as fair game to many men despite her birth being no fault of her own. She is lucky enough to be under the protection of powerful Norman noble, the Black Wolf, and his wife the Lady Serena who has taught her some archery skills to defend herself from unwanted advances.
The Black Wolf's son is Alex, now known as the Red Wolf, a knight who has gained some renown campaigning with the English king William Rufus in Normandy. In this time period, knights were often ordered to marry as the king required, to bind alliances, and landholders in England were often required to ally their families with those in Normandy. Merewyn knows that there is no possibility that she could be allowed to marry Alex, but she allows herself to fall in love with him anyway… and you'll have to read the rest of the book to find out how they get to their happy ending.
The author's style reminds me a little of Sharon Penman, whose wonderful books about the last Princes of Wales were really the first thing to actually get me interested in history, considering the history I was taught in school was incredibly dry. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I will be looking for more of Regan Walker's work.
Merewyn who went to live with Lady Emma when she was young after her mother died from childbirth and lived at Talisand, after Alex protected her from unwanted attention and he went off to squire, she was left feeling vulnerable and so, she asked Lady Serena to train her in archery, soon she became accomplished and Lady Serena felt she could'nt teach her anymore than what she already knew and so she asked Rhodri and Fia to complete her archery training in Wales.
Now she's back at Talisand and so is Alex, and they both discover things have changed, follow them on the paths set out for them, some are bumpy.
Regan Walker writes the most engrossing tale set in Medieval times that you can imagine being in them.
This is one you won't be able to put down and will read again and again.
