Elianne du Hommet is the destitute daughter of the sheriff of Knabwell -- a greedier, more selfish man you would be hard put to find. There is no love lost between the two and Elianne, with her own suspicions, agrees to help Josce and his stepmother in their quest to uncover the truth of their family's murders. After all, what else can be done to her? Thanks to her father, she is no longer welcome at the local priory and is near to being homeless.
Elianne is a strong, prideful character, aware she cannot have what she wants, but that doesn't stop her from falling in love, even though that path leads to danger. Josce is a most honorable, compassionate man intent on his duty, and the epitome of a romance hero. Secondary characters will make you laugh, cry, and tear your hair out. Especially Sheriff du Hommet whom I wanted to string up by his toenails!
MY LADY'S TEMPTATION is an intriguing, fast-paced novel filled with suspense and treachery. The climactic ending will leave readers flipping pages as fast as they can, only to find themselves hoping there will be another book in this series.
Denise Hampton hits her stride with MY LADY'S TEMPTATION. Reminiscent of her writing as Denise Domning, I highly recommend this spin-off of THE WARRIOR'S DAMSEL. Don't miss this top notch tale of love and its incredible power to beat all odds.
Josce and Elianne are attracted to one another, but he does not trust the daughter of the man who he believes killed his sire while she mistrusts any male after the schemes where her father always used her as a disposable pawn. Josce quickly pushes marriage between them but is he wedding his enemy's daughter out of a need for vengeance or has somehow love entered the relationship of these star-crossed lovers? That is the question as far as Elianne is concerned because she knows she loves Josce.
Medieval romance fans wanting a complete feel for the era will find MY LADY'S TEMPTATION as the right read. The story line is filled with vivid descriptions of the period especially the role of single women as pawns to be used, misused, and discarded as necessary. Josce is a tormented antihero struggling between his vow to his stepmother and his split feelings of wanting to hate and love the offspring of the sheriff. Though the villain is hard to comprehend his logic Denise Hampton provides her audience with a darker but fuller picture that those medieval aficionados who demand total realism will relish.
You will like this book whether you are an avid Medieval Romance reader or if you just like to read. Everything is perfect.
