In the face of overwhelming setbacks, a young tribeswoman from ancient times is tasked with marrying a brutish warrior with no capacity for feeling. He's sexy. He's dangerous. He's over-the-top alpha. Make no mistake. This is a romance, but there is abuse up front. This book is set in a time and place where husbands took full advantage of the rights they had over their wives. But Xavier's actions and what lurks behind his eyes tell different stories.
In so many ways, Leawyn is left without choice. She has no choice but to marry Xavier. No choice but to submit her body to him. She hates him, but her duty to her tribe makes her stay. Then something lovely hapens. Sense of duty changes to respect for her husband, and then blossoms into more. Leawyn started out with no choice, but it's the choices she makes as the story unfolds that define her and define the book. It's the strength she shows in loving when the natural response is to hate.
I love Leawyn for her propensity toward love. You will too. Definitely get this one. I can't wait to dig into the next in the series, which looks like it will follow Xavier's cousin and Leawyn's handmaiden. <3
Aside from that, I really found myself glued to this story. It was face paced, riveting, and had lots of twists and turns I didn't expect. The characters were complex and well developed. I could picture what they looked like and felt like I was right there beside them during the action. I loved the historical setting and all the steamy, erotic passion. There was a great deal to recommend this novel. I hope to read more from this author in the near future!
If you love a relationship that doesn't start romantically but ends beautifully this book is for you!

A bit cliched but that's how I like them sometimes.
This has been a very thought provoking story. Leawyn is young,naive and pure,then this warrior comes roaring in to marry her, she is scared.Read more
