Well when she was finally brought face to face with the Emperor I held my breath because I thought this was not going to go well at all.
David, the warrior selected by the emperor to be Rochelle's husband, was such a good man. He was so excited that he had been selected by the emperor to wed Rochelle, a beautiful woman, a heiress, and a large estate that would be his upon the marriage.
Rochelle though had other plans, even though after a time David started getting through to her, the fact that he was being forced upon her just went against her very being. That this situation she found herself in was not of her doing, and she was losing control of her life. So then she comes up with ideas to regain control over her life once again, just as it had been before.
There are other bad guys who are wanting David down and out also. Poor David, Poor David, my head was swimming with all the bad things that were happening to him. He should have been nominated for sainthood. He definitely did not deserve what he got.
It was a very exciting story and a great book to get all comfy with and let it take you back to the 9th century. Kudos to Jill Hughey.
Unbidden by Jill Hughey is the first book in the Evolution Series. It introduces a rich cast of characters from the period of the early French empire, complete with complex histories and psychologies, contributing to a fascinating tale. We meet Rochelle, in charge of her estate after the death of her father, and unaccustomed to being under the control of any man; David, a warrior who must come to terms with the tender feelings Rochelle evokes; David’s brother Doeg, who has his own demons to contend with; and Theophilus, on the surface a dandy who also once loved Rochelle, but has conceded the field to his best friend.
You’ll read with rapt interest as Rochelle and David grow to love and respect each other, bite your nails as their love is threatened by Rochelle’s impetuous act, and cheer as they grope for each other in the dark—quite literally. This story had a bit of everything. Nicely inserted historical and cultural details for the lovers of history, a bit of mystery and suspense, and a couple of hot, but tastefully done, flesh on flesh scenes.
A great summer read.
I appreciated the time the story took to develop the relationship and love between Rochelle and David. There have been books that I’ve read where it seems the main couple just fell in love overnight without truly establishing the steps it took for them to get where they were. It made their relationship less credible which took away from the story. In this book however, you read the changes that David and especially Rochelle undergo the more they spent time with each other. It’s a gradual shift from where they started and considering Louis basically commanded Rochelle to marry David or lose her home it really was a big hill to climb. But that was what made the book so enjoyable. I loved reading the growing bond between them and how miscommunication, distrust and fear almost brought them to the brink of disaster only to have these conflicts strengthen their love.
David and Rochelle were just great characters whom you can both cheer for and also be exasperated with. They each had their own traits that made them strong on their own but also made them compatible with each other. Plus, they each had their own faults that contributed to their relationship almost falling apart.Read more ›
