Format: Mass Market Paperback
I truly enjoy the stories that Ms. Bennett pens. She creates wonderful characters and situations that draws the reader in.
Jenova and Henry share a past. They grew up together and Jenova was always kind to Henry even when her mother wanted her to keep her distance. Years have passed and Jenova married another and Henry earned his place at court. Despite these changes Jenova and Henry have remained good friends. So when Jenova sends word that she would like Henry to come to her holdings, Henry wastes no time and goes to his friend. He has no idea that this time things will be different. Very different.
Henry is handsome of face and form, trusted by the King and knights alike. When his good friend Jenova requests that he attend her he does. This widow has always had a small piece of his heart and he will do what he must for her. He is shocked when he finds out that she plans to marry again. Why he should feel this way concerns him but he puts it off. Then they take a ride and find themselves in need of shelter when a snow storm approaches. This is just the spark that needs to be set to the kindle that is their attraction. Now that he has tasted the sweetness of Jenova's kiss he wants more but she is promised to another. Will he forsake all in order to make her his bride or will he step back and allow another to call her wife?
Jenova and Henry are wonderfully constructed characters and this story is really very good. Ms. Bennett knows how to weave a story that will captivate the reader. It was entertaining to finally read Henry's story and Ms. Bennett did well by him.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lady Jenova of Guninghorn feels that she is finally ready to marry again although she knows she will never give her heart to a man ever again. But first she feels she should get the opinion of her oldest and dearest friend, Lord Henry of Montevoy.

Upon his arrival, in a moment of madness, the pair give in to the sizzling attraction that is burning between them. Afterwards, the pair can't believe that they have nearly destroyed the friendship they both hold so dear - but neither can they give up what they have found in each other.

But dark secrets from the past have a way of popping up at the most inopportune times and certain people have plans to exploit the secrets that will ensure Henry and Jenova have to fight to keep the happiness they have found together.

This is the first Sara Bennett book that I have read and if all the others are of the same standard as this then I will definitely be looking to read them all! I believe this book is part of a series but it completely stood alone so there is no need to have read the others to understand this one.

I really enjoyed this story of two old friends who suddenly realise that they meant more to each other than either ever expected. Around the love story there was a very intricate and well crafted storyline which never faltered and really kept you interested from beginning to end. All the characters, especially Henry and Jenova, were well developed and had so many layers that it was impossible not to fall in love with them. Henry was such a wonderful character - I adored how he was so strong yet very vulnerable. And everyone, villains included, was intelligent and far from being two-dimensional which gave the storyline a lot of depth and excitement.

Beautiful setting 26 Mar. 2014
By Ariesgrl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Heartbroken Lady Jenova vows to marry again because it has been two years since her husband’s death, but she refuses to marry for love. She asks her prominent friend, Lord Henry, for help. During their search for the proper groom, they grow closer and share a passionate kiss. Unfortunately for Lord Henry, falling for Jenova could cost him his friendship as well as his position.

Sara Bennett does a wonderful job weaving a tale of characters, who for the most part scheme together to awaken Jenova’s and Henry’s feelings for one another. The English setting plays a vital role in this story and described in exquisite detail. The characters’ garb and dialects are appropriate for the time, while Jenova’s and Henry’s relationship seems quite unique. Readers will want to read the series in order, but it isn’t necessary to appreciate this final chapter.

I though it was a good book, but once again the ending seemed rush, or not as good as it could be. It was wrapped up again with like effort on the hero's part. I liked Henry and Jenova, and they were great character. I would give in a 3.5. Still a good read, if not a great read.

I hope all Sara Bennet books are not this boring. I tried to get into it, and sometimes I was. But the story was...It was hard to feel connected to any of the characters. The plot was also blah, and Jenova was too impersonal.

engaging Conqueror romance 30 Jun. 2004
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1075 England, Widow Lady Jenova asks her best friend, King William's confident Lord Henry to visit her at remote Gunlinghorn. William drops everything to travel the four days in wintry conditions to see Jenova to learn what she needs form him. There, she shocks him when she tells him that she is considering marriage after mourning the loss of her spouse for the last two years. Her chosen one is neighbor Alfric Baldessare, who would bow to her wishes and wants to know what he thinks especially since her potential groom's father demands that he be named estate guardian in the event of his son's death. Henry knows that the elder Baldessare hates him over a regal land decision so he has doubts about the match.
While riding, a sudden snowstorm sends Jenova and Henry seeking shelter. When they find refuge, they hold each other tight for some warmth, but soon make love to the shock of them both. Jenova realizes that she is in love again though has doubts after her first husband's betrayal and Henry hides his feelings. However, the elder Baldessare plays "matchmaker" when he abducts her five-year-old son to force her hand.
KISSING THE BRIDE is an engaging Conqueror romance starring delightful protagonists and wonderful secondary players to include a romance between the villain's daughter and Henry's top aid. The villain is so crazy that he seems like a caricature, but then again his actions force the lead couple to confess their inner feelings. Sara Bennett provides a fine historical that fans of the William era will treasure.
