By convincing the woman in Flete Castle, where she was the ward of Lord Humphrey, that they too had the right to demand more for themselves she convinced them to join with her in retaking her inheritance of Castle Rising. Megge explained that they could all have what they most fervently desired by withholding sexual favors and forcing their men folk to take notice. Even though still a virgin, she'd seen and heard enough to know that this alone could drive a man to his knees if they were not relived often enough.
King Edward sent his most formidable knight Sir Olyver to lay down a siege at the castle gates. Castle Rising was supposedly an unassailable fortress, but it would take Olyver more cunning than he'd learnt during his war campaigns to assail the beautiful and intelligent mistress who had already captured his heart!
*** This was a truly imaginative tale by a new author whom I plan to watch carefully. It was well written with witty dialogs and wonderfully crafted secondary characters featuring some really lovely relationships between the women as well as the main protagonists that were all quite endearing. You won't find a huge amount of explicit sex scenes but instead a lot of implied sexual activity that tends to get quite humorous. The negotiating correspondence that was written, along with the additional insinuated comments, were enormously funny and I found myself chuckling quite a bit in Klassels latest romp thru the middle ages. --- Marilyn, for [...] ---
King Edward sends his strongest knight Sir Olyver of Mannyngs, known as the Scourge of the Saracen and considered by many as a "Limb of Hell" to retake the castle from the feminist revolutionaries. Olyver obtains a pledge from his liege that when he succeeds in ending the revolt, he will be Megge's ninth and last groom for he plans to share her bed for decades (avoid that curse word lifetime as that has proven short for Megge's wannabe spouses).
This magnificent medieval version of the Greek classic Lysistrata stars a terrific heroine who is tired of being a GIRL ON THE RUN to her next selected soon to be dead husband. The ferocious warrior Olyver is her perfect counterpoint as he finds boudoir battles much more difficult than the Crusades. Olyver admires Megge's courage, pluck, and strategy knowing that SHE WHO LAUGHS LAST will be his forever beloved. Fabulously amusing historical romance with that delightful ancient Greek third leg twist.
Overall a very well written story and I am looking forward to more from this author.
