This is how the Lyon comes to claim Cragmere and marry Ariana who at the time is a mere girl. Immediately after the wedding Lyon despatches Ariana to a convent, and there she languishes for five years.
But the time comes when King William commands Lyon it is time to retrieve his wife and return to Cragmere, Lyon hopes that the nuns had curbed his wife's temper and attitude, he remembers her mouthing obscenities at him five years before.
Ariana has grown up into a beautiful woman, but she has become more outspoken in that time, and shows her contempt not just for Lyon but all Normans.
This is a great way to spend a few hours, this is a fast moving and emotional tale set against the backdrop of England after the Norman conquest. There are many interesting characters, including Ariana's ex-betrothed and Lyons Mistress who is determined to rid him of his wife and keep him for herself. As usual with this author there are plenty of love scenes. The descriptions of the time period seem quite accurate and add to the story. An enjoyable read.
