“Medieval romance at its best!”

HE WOULD NOT BE DENIED HIS PRIZE

Sir Renaud de Pierrepont, the Norman knight known as the Red Wolf for the beast he slayed with his bare hands, hoped to gain lands with his sword. A year after the Conquest, King William rewards his favored knight with Talisand, the lands of an English thegn slain at Hastings, and orders him to wed Lady Serena, the heiress that goes with them.

SHE WOULD LOVE HIM AGAINST HER WILL

Serena wants nothing to do with the fierce warrior to whom she has been unwillingly given, the knight who may have killed her father. When she learns the Red Wolf is coming to claim her, she dyes her flaxen hair brown and flees, disguised as a servant, determined to one day regain her lands. But her escape goes awry and she is brought back to live among her people, though not unnoticed by the new Norman lord.

Deprived of his promised bride, the Red Wolf turns his attention to the comely servant girl hoping to woo her to his bed. But the wench resists, claiming she hates all Normans.

As the passion between them rises, Serena wonders, can she deny the Norman her body? Or her heart?

“Ms. Walker has the rare ability to make you forget you are reading a book…the characters become real, the modern world fades away and all that is left is the intrigue, drama and romance.” Straight from the Library

“An engrossing love story grounded in meticulous research. Regan Walker makes the transition from Regency London to Anglo Norman England with consummate ease.” Glynn Holloway, author of 1066 What Fates Impose

MY THOUGHTS:

THE RED WOLF’S PRIZE by Regan Walker is an awesome Medieval Historical Romance. #1 in the “Medieval warriors” series, and what a beginning. WOW!Holy Norman conquest! This is a Medieval fan’s dream tale! A Norman Knight and an English Lady!

I could not put this wickedly delicious tale of courage, deception, romance and seduction down for one moment. Fast paced and paced with action,determination,danger, and love. Well written with an intriguing storyline and engaging characters. The sparks particularly fly off the pages between Sir Renaud de Pierrepont,the Norman Knight given the Lady Serena, the heiress of Talisand and her beloved home as his reward for his service to King William. Lady Serena, disguises herself as a servant girl, to deceive her newly betrothed Norman Knight.

This is a must read tale of the coming together of the Saxons and the Normans, the sacrifices made and rewards gained by each. The Saxons’ struggles to come to terms with being conquered and their desire to have peace with the Normans. With the right mixture of romance with danger and seduction you do not want to miss “The Red Wolf’s Prize”! I would highly recommend this title to anyone who enjoys not only Medieval tales, but tales of romance, and intrigue. I absolutely loved this tale and look forward to the next installment in this awesome read. Well done!

MY THOUGHTS:

UNCONQUERED by Hannah Howell is another exciting Medieval historical romance set in 1066 England. A battle between England’s Saxons and Normandy/France’s Normans. A complex and compelling story of the struggle between the Saxons of England and the Normans.It is the story of secrets,the lost of innocence,love,treachery,jealousy,the fight for a way of life for England,and who would rule England,Harold or William the Conqueror.A compelling cast of characters with a touch of paranormal. A Saxon women,Eada of Pevensey,a woman with a gift of sight and Drogo de Toulon,a soldier for William the Conquerer will find they have more than passion in common.Ms. Howell certainly pulls the reader into another era and is a wonderful storyteller that will have the reader spellbound. A captivating story with twists and turns. Received for an honest review. Details can be found at Zebra Books,published by Kensington Publishing Corp.,the author’s website,and My Book Addiction and More.

RATING: 4.5

HEAT RATING:

Mild: Mild detailed scenes of intimacy,mild violence or profanity.
