Product Description

Review

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.

This was the first book I've read by Brenda Joyce and I think I was slightly disappointed with it. After reading so many five star reviews I have expected a better story.I could understand Ceidre and her thinking and feelings about Rolf the Relentless but understanding the male hero was more difficult. I can't believe that he got aroused all the time he saw Ceidre and couldn't control himself. He was a strong willed warrior used to controlling himself. The storyline wasn't new for me. My favourite Norman invasion novel is Kathleen Woodiwiss's The Wolf and the Dove. It is very difficult to compare The Conqueror to this one. Ms. Woodiwiss is more detailed about the Age and its people and her novel seams more realistic.I gave four stars to The Conqueror because the book wasn't boring and it was full of action and because Brenda Joyce is a talented writer. But there is more erotica in this book than romance and history for my taste.
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.

I love this book. I bought it few years ago and have been reading it again and again. The story is set during the William's prime time and Rolfe is the hero granted the land from Ceidre's family.
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 happened upon this book by chance - I don't think I've ever read a book so amazingly erotic!! Since reading this I've purchased other Brenda Joyce novels but not one matches this! If you like to read about history, romance and like graphic sex scenes (i.e. nothing left to the imagination), don't hesitate - buy it now!

This is the first book I had read by Brenda, and I must admit I was torn between loving it and hating it. I was totally flabergasted at the things she put this couple through...and I don't think I've read any romances that the hero was quite so aggressive. By the end of the book I do admit that I loved it, but practically threw my hands up in the air on any number of occasions while I was reading. Anyway, it was good enough to make me purchase 3 more books by her and I just finished "My Dearest Enemy". It was great and another truly unique story by Brenda!

This is a stark, harsh realistically brutal story! Brenda Joyce has a knack for creating pretty harrowing scenarios for her protagonists. Her 'hero' in this book is not your average romantic male - far from it but this author has the confidence to stay true to his savage nature and not 'pretty up' his image by making him likeable. He's a beast in many ways as one would expect a Norman warrior to be which is why this works so well - Brenda Joyce tells it like it is and it's not a palatable tale. Nevertheless, this author manages to write an epic tale which draws out the romantic scenario to breaking point. One can't help being drawn into the love story - and ultimately falling in love with it.

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!

Would recommend this book to any lover of historical romance. Wonderful storytelling, packed with excitement, suspense and passion. The characters in the story are believable and fascinating and the blend of historical fact enhances the story.

This book was excellent. A real keeper that I will definitely read again. Not only was it a page turner and heart stopper, but I found unable to stop thinking of the story while I wasn't reading it. I found myself feeling many of the feelings that the characters had. I just can't say enough!

This is romance at its best. Characters are strong and believable. I can't put it down. I have put this book on my "keepers shelf", along with the Diane Gabaldon (Jamie & Claire, the time traveling lovers)series, and Skye O'Malley by Bertrice Small.
