The "New York Times" Bestselling Author of "Beyond Scandal"
"The power of "The Conqueror" is awesome...potently sensual, powerful in its emotional intensity...This is what Brenda Joyce fans expect! Leave it to...Brenda Joyce to handle the intricate plot, boiling sensuality, complex history and strong characters with such panache." --"Romantic Times"
From the Inside Flap
Like a pagan god, Rolfe the Relentless rode into Castle Aelfgar to claim it as his prize--and Lady Alice as his bride. Lauded for his bravery in France, in England he was the hated enemy. Once ensconced in his new domain, Rolfe became determined to tame the Saxon beauty Ceidre, Alice's illegitimate sister, whose spirit and sensuality make him risk treason to have her--not Lady Alice--in his bed...
Mysterious and seductive, she was no lady but a spy for the rebel cause of her noble half brothers. Refusing to bow to this arrogant warrior who ignited her forbidden passion, Ceidre was swept into a dangerous liaison tied to the fate of England and kings. Yet with his kisses on her lips, his skillful hands on her body, she would have to struggle not to surrender to... The Conqueror.

If you like to read about steamy, hot and very erotic sex scenes and you don't mind that some things are missing you will enjoy The Conqueror.
There were lots of conflicts in the story that makes it interesting. But what makes it most appealing is the relationship between Rolfe and Ceidre. I love the way Rolfe could not seem to get Ceidre out of his mind.
It is true that this book has lots of sex. All I can say is he is the lord and knows how to get what he wants :)
I can completely understand this book alienating those of us who prefer a bog standard alpha male romantic hero with all the qualities one expects in this genre - a heart of gold underneath etc but for me, this story hits the spot because the character of Rolfe is really quite brutal but like his counterpart Ceidre who is drawn to him against her better judgement one can't help feeling the whole love/hate thin line scenario very keenly.
If you're after a pretty story, my advice is not to go here. However, I think this is a very well written rollercoaster rampage of a tale which never fails to shock with its brutality but which also succeeds in setting the heart beating with it's lush romantiscism in the face of adversity!
