As it turned out, they had met previously at the river (her half naked) where he took one of her remarks out of context and set a whole new direction to a love story now complicated by misunderstanding.
Because Ram was a famous warrior, he left the upkeep of the castle and the welfare of his betrothed with his father and took his men to fight a brewing war. Ms. Markland described the battle that waged between the Saxons and the Normans so extraordinarily well that one could visualize the horror of the bloody fight. History woven perfectly into description kept the story realistic and so enjoyable, I was sorry to see the book end.
Being first and foremost a romance lover, I wasn't disappointed at the continuing love story between the hero and heroine. Even when separated, the romance blossomed and their relationship kept me intrigued.
With lines such as - "I will pursue the King's peace with warlike fervour." - I have to applaud this work and can't wait until the next book "A Man of Value" is released.
Its a good start, young fiery woman who has had a hard time in life is betrothed to the handsome warrior etc etc but the book just doesn't flow! The prose is quite jerky and I felt like the author had read various history books and was throwing the facts she learned from them in willy nilly. I presume it was an attempt to paint an authentic historical atmosphere, but it felt like they were there just for the sake of it, in a, 'look i've dne my reseach so im putting it in' kind of way. Other authors have managed it much more subtly. The characters are generally one dimensional and unconvincing, the 'hero' Rambaud or 'Ram' getting another woman pregnant after meeting and falling in love with the heroine, hardly the stuff we women fantasise about, which is a shame. By the end it's quite difficult to really care either way.
Overall not the worst I've read but there are much better.
