Book Description

Jan 1994 Thorndike Press Large Print Romance Series
She was the heroine of her people….
With her extraordinary violet eyes, French Countess Melisande was a prize for any man. But the teenage hellion who rode into battle to defend her people belonged to the warrior who saved her life, made her his bride, then disappeared for years. Now Conar MacAuliffe had returned to claim his wife, now a ravishing woman determined to fight for her freedom at all costs. But the proud beauty who feared no man suddenly feared herself and the passionate embrace of the husband who vowed to never let her go.

He was the mighty viking conqueror they called…
Lord of the Wolves, a legendary warrior whose greatest challenge would come with the woman he was destined to wed. In the fiery Countess Melisande he would find his heaven and hell. Even as he waged war for her heart, he dared not to yield his own. Even as he laid sweet, seductive siege to her body, he tried to shield his soul. It would take a common enemy, a little trust, and a united front to awaken them both to a love that could change their lives forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book was GREAT!! 17 Nov 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Heather Graham has written a book that grabs the reader's attention from the first page. The visual picture that she paints of Conar, the son of a Viking, sailing to rescue his Melisande from an enemy is so vivid, it feels real. The story of these two lovers and Conar's promise to "never let her go", makes this a MUST read!

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing 22 Nov 2006
By Pat "readaholic" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Melisande's father is killed by a treacherous enemy and she is forced to marry Conar,an Irish/viking prince to save her home and her people from an enemy. After the wedding she is sent to a convent to grow up as she is only 13.Years later Conar and Melisande meet again when her home is again being attacked.He rescues her again and they fight then she is abducted.At this point most of the remainder of the story is told in flashback.The hero was a pretty decent character but the heroine behaved like a spoilt brat throughout the story.She's 13 at the start of the story and continues to act 13 to the end of the story.Conar deserved someone who was woman enough to accept the fact that the best way to protect her people and her home was to marry him and accept it without all the fuss that she made.I lost track of the number of times she called him viking;he knows he's a viking we know he's a viking did she have to keep saying it? It was a good story but the heroine's childish attitude spoilt most of it for me. The scenes with Conar and his family going into battle were far more interesting than any scene with the heroine.Rhiannon and Eric(The Viking's woman)made appearances,also Erin and Olaf(Golden Surrender).They helped the story to get a 3 star rating.The story would have been alot better if the heroine didn't fight the hero all through the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOUTLEY AMAZING!!! 4 Jun 2004
By Bibliophile - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
THIS BOOK IS WONDERFUL!!!First off,I'm a little partial because I absolutely LOVE Viking Romances!In Lord of the Wolves, Heather Graham weaves an intricate tale of love, suspense, trust, and passion. Her characters, Melisande and Conar, are both strong-willed and sensual at the same time.I would love to tell you my favorite parts of the book (which is practically all of it!) but,I don't want to spoil it for anyone! Because of Graham's incredible plot, vivid detail and amazing characters, I COULD NOT put this book down! I STRONGLY advise anyone who is looking for a GREAT read and amazing story buy Lord of the Wolves. This novel is STILL and will always remain one of my absoutle FAVORITES! If you do buy it, I hope you enjoy it and have as much fun as I did reading it!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 and 1/2 stars - 3rd in the Viking Trilogy - Great Viking Romance! 16 Sep 2010
By Regan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the third in Graham's Viking trilogy (Golden Surrender, The Viking's Woman and Lord of the Wolves). Set in 9th century Ireland (Eire), England and the north coast of France, this is the story of Prince Olaf of Norway, the first Lord of the Wolves, and his bride, Princess Erin, daughter of the Irish High King, the Ard-Righ of Tara, and their descendants. I warn you that the Viking men in this series are strong willed, arrogant and domineering and those in the last two books are half Irish. Their loves are independent, stubborn and courageous women who have lost much and still can fight with the best of the men. They have no intention of allowing a Viking male who has taken everything from them dominate them. But then wolves and the cubs of wolves mate for life or so says the druid who is advisor to the Irish king's family--and these men are wolves.

Each of the marriages is arranged over the objection of the females who fight the husbands who have laid claim to their lands and to them. This third in the series tells the story of Olaf and Erin's son, Conar, who like his father is known as the Lord of the Wolves for he has been great in battle, and Countess Melisande whose castle lies on the north coast of France. Melisande's father, Count Manon, a virile and handsome man, loves his daughter deeply and takes pride in her beauty (which is considerable), her intelligence and her independence. At nearly 13, he knows her growing beauty and her vulnerability as Countess will require that she must one day wed and he's been surveying worthy candidates for the eventual day. With such a purpose in mind, he invites the Wolf's son, Conar, from Eire (Ireland) who he's been impressed with before, to visit his lands in France and meet Melisande. He will not force her to consider him if she doesn't like him, however. Melisande does not know that. Conar arrives just as the Count is slain by a neighbor who covets his daughter and his lands. With the Count's men now leaderless, and believing Conar will protect their lands, they decide Melisande must marry Conar (though the marriage cannot be consummated for many years). Melisande, who takes an instant dislike to the arrogant and demanding Viking, is forced into the marriage. Conar is only willing to marry the difficult child to get the lands. Once wed (in a hasty ceremony), he sends her away to Ireland to his sister who is a nun so she can grow up. His family falls in love with her and many years later he decides to come for her. But she has escaped to his brother, Eric, in England and has no intention of being Conar's wife in truth. Instead, she wants an annulment. But Conar will "never" let her go.

My only problem with this 3rd in the trilogy is that I never read a single conversation between Conar and Melisande that was not a fight over some demand of his. He gave his body to his mistresses and his mind and heart to his family and his rune reader, the lovely blonde Brenna. So when he decides he loves Melisande, I'm wondering, based on what? Great sex? Apparently. Anyway, it does come together in the end but it's a bit of a stretch getting there. In the other books in the trilogy, the couples at least seemed to find some things in common. Still, it's a worthy series, and as always, Graham delivers a good tale.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money:( !! 7 Oct 2010
By Avid reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
...or your time into reading this book. It took all the grid I had to finish this one (I kept hoping it would get better but it didn't). The plot was so promising, but the heroine was dumb as a boot and extremely self-centered, and never grew up. By the end of the story I was hoping our wonderful viking hero would wake up and leave her on the mercy of her enemies. Melisande keeps repeating herself in all the conversations, so it felt like I was reading the same page over and over again.
