5.0 out of 5 stars Taming the Wolf 23 May 2010

TAMING THE WOLF - Deborah Simmons.
Set in England in 1270. This is the first book in Deborah Simmons de Burgh series. It tells he story of Dunstan de Burgh the eldest of the de Burgh brothers who is told to escort the Lady Marion Warenne to her home. Although she has lost her memory she knows there is something sinister at home and tries numerous times to escape, much to the dismay of Dunstan and so sets the scene for the conflict between them. The sexual chemistry between the two is breathtaking. Once I started to read this book I could not put it down. Deborah Simmons tells Medieval Britain wonderfully and is one of the best authors of medieval romance I have read. I cant wait for the next book in the series The de Burgh Bride to carry on reading what the rest of the de Burghs get up to. Happy reading !

5.0 out of 5 stars First De Burgh book 13 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book about the De Burgh brothers, and possibly the best, though the others are very good too. "The De Burgh Bride" is next, then "The robber bride", I think. I am still waiting for "My Lord De Burgh" to come to kindle as it is my second favourite. They are about struggle and mystery followed by romance, with our heroic men finally recognising their strong women.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a book about Marion Warenne who has lost her memory but is found by the De Burgh brother's who take her to there home and she becomes like a sister to them. But Dunstan the eldest brother comes to visit and brings with him bad news Marion's relatives, her nasty Uncle, has been found and it falls to Dunstan to return her home. Was very funny story especially the witty arguments between Marion and Dunstan and how she tries to out wit him with her various escape plans. Finally as she is returned but then the battle is on for Dunstan who then has to rescue her from her Uncle who he been trying to force her to return to. Not only does he have to battle to save her but he also has to battle his heart as he tries to persuade himself he is not in love with her.
I loved this book and read it in 1 day I cannot wait to find out what happens to Dunstan's other brother, so will definately be getting the next in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Tamed Who Here? 4 July 2002
By M. Rondeau - Published on Amazon.com
This is the first book of the de Burgh family and my God I can't wait to get to the others if this one is indicative of what is coming. WOW!
This is the story of the eldest son Dunstan deBurgh and Marion Warenne. It starts out with Marion being rescued by Simon de Burgh and brought to Castle Campion (home to the de Burgh clan)where she stays for the next 6 months before even meeting Dunstan - the eldest de Burgh son. Marion has sustained amnesia and after months of of trying to find out who Marion is the discovery is made and she is to be returned to her Uncle. After putting it to a vote of the 6 de Burgh brothers, Dunstan was elected to return her to her Uncle.
Dunstan had his own property to care for and was very much aginst having to take the time to return this 'piece of baggage' back to her uncle. Marion still did not remember her past but knew, without a doubt, that if she was returned she would be killed. Consequently the trip to return her was one escape attempt after another as she tried to run away from Dunstan.
Dunstan had his own problems, honor bound to do complete this mission his father gave him, and trying to tell himself that he was not feeling any kind of attraction to this 'little brown wren'. Stubborn to a fault, he did NOT believe in love and this was something that did not happen to real people.
What a delightful trip! Naturally, these two get to spend some time together - alone - and what a reckoning this becomes! WOW - Dunstan is one lusty kind of knight and the passion is returned from this 'little brown wren' ! Definitely a page turner and one you must try to get your hands on because you will want to read this one over and over again! The best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Falling in love with the de Burgh brothers.... 6 Dec 2007
By Nora Jean - Published on Amazon.com
I really enjoyed Taming the Wolf, the first book in the de Burgh family saga. In fact, I couldn't put it down. At times I wanted to hit Dunstan over the head because he was so darned stubborn and wouldn't listen to what Marion was trying to tell him. He had his honor to uphold and he was darned determined to deliver her back to her devious uncle.

In the end, however, he did see the light and although still stubborn he did show his softer side a little more often; especially with his brothers.

Like the Jude Deveraux's Montgomery's, I absolutely fell in love with the de Burgh brothers. At the moment I'm reading about Geoffrey and since I'm still in the midst of the conflict between Elene and Geoffrey I won't write my review until I'm finished with it, but thus far I am really enjoying the book THE de BURGH BRIDE.

Much to my dismay though, I found that there aren't any further books about the last two de Burgh siblings; which is a shame as I would really like to know why Reynold is the way he is and why does he favor one leg. Then there is of course the youngest: Nicholas. Out of the two last brothers, who holds out the longest at succumbing to cupid's arrow? It is my fervent hope that Simmons will eventually write the last two books in the de Burgh family saga.

I am fortunate to even have the book THE BRIDES OF CHRISTMAS which contains the short story of their father finding a new love as well. I can't read that one though until I read about Simon (The Robber Bride).

I do so love to read books in order.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Dream Book!!! 15 Oct 2009
By Krista Lyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has all the ingredients that I love in a good romance novel:

1. A hero who is a strong, fierce, macho warrior..... however one that is clueless about love and emotion.
2. A heroine who is strong, independent, and not afraid to push her hero's buttons.
3. A strong family with strong ties to one another.
4. A book that gives the hero/heroine significant time in the book alone with one another!
5. A book that has a some intrigue, suspense, humor, and sadness.
6. A book with scorching sensuality.
7. A hero who '"falls hard" for his lady and reforms.
8. A satisfying ending.

I know this is pretty much the formula for all romance novels, but SERIOUSLY Deborah Simmons does this formula flawlessly. I liken this book to some of my favorite Garwood novels, but it is truly one on to it's own.

This is book 1 of the de Burgh family series...and it is staying on my keeper shelf for good. I may even reread it now (which is very unlike me!) It has it all!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best medieval reads ever! 28 Oct 1998
By FairyQuote - Published on Amazon.com
I was sad to see this book end, it was so incredible and really drew me in. I felt a real connection to these characters and have read it again several times since because I was so involved with their story. If you are a medieval lover, and even if you're not, Taming the Wolf will take your breath away!
