The h and H were the children of sworn enemies but meet and fall in love anyway. Later in the book after getting married and having 2 children with a third on the way, the h's brother betrays the H and he's captured for a long time. He missed out on the birth of his son and then takes 1 year to get over what happened to him. By that I mean he doesn't feel worthy to make love to his wife and so even though he's home, he rejects her emotionally. This was all a bit tedious and drawn out.
In the midst of an upheaval when Norman interests were in jeopardy, Robert's family decide to support Henry, son of William the Conqueror, for the English throne. Everyone had to make a similar choice and some chose to lift their swords for Curthose his brother. One such family, old enemies of Ram Montbryce were Pierre de Giroux and his father. A meeting where everyone attended was called and Robert met and fell in love with Pierre's sister Dorianne. From this point on the tale carries the reader from happiness to heartbreak, jealousy to betrayal, and from terrible suffering to the heights of joy. I loved following this story and enjoyed every page because it seemed that something continuously happened to keep me involved. And the romance the author wove into each page? Well it was beautiful!
Dorianne's brother, Pierre, locks her up in a nunnery on Mont St. Michael, but she's rescued by Robert and they marry. Love wins out, even though Pierre continues his attacks on the pair.
A fast, sexy read of medieval romance with treachery, envy, lust and love all playing a part.
It is turbulent times when Robert de Montbryce decides he wants a love like his parents have shared for many years. Dorianne de Giroux's is the total opposite as hate, vengeance and the need for power are their only friends. When her family arranges marriage to a boy of only twelve, she can't wonder what her life will hold. But when she unwittingly falls in love with her family's enemy, a Montbryce, all is turned upside down.
This is a rousing story of a true, abiding love, told on the backdrop of medieval history and a must for everyone! Don't miss out...this is a great story...by an equally great story teller.
