This story depicts the romance between Rand Fitz Hugh,a baron under King Henry and Josselyn ap Carreg Du heir to a Welsh leader.Rand wants to lay claim to the land of Welsh peacefully but Josselyn and the others will do everything to thwart him.But what no one took into consideration was the fierce love which blossomed between them.

There were a lot of twists and the plot should have been interesting but it became irritating and repetitive after sometime.The characters also seemed superfluous.

Even with the unintentional laughs ("She felt his one hand tangle in her hair, freeing it of its Sabbath coiffure and releasing it to the caprice of the winds off the sea. She felt the movement of his other hand down past her waist, to curve over her derriere and press her almost violently against his thickened maleness."), there was no way I could trudge through more pages of this drivel.

In The Bride of Rosecliffe, we have medieval characters who speak and behave like twenty first century peopl

I AM A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED THAT THIS STORY WASNT AS INTERESTING AND AFTER READING A FEW OF BECNEL'S BOOKS, THE REPETITION CAN GET BORING AND A TAD ANNOYING.

OUR HERO is a tough, arrogant warrior under the command of King Henry is sent to Wales to build a castle and fortify his army's strength there, at the same time keeping men like Rand at bay because of his wealth and power. Ever the city boy, Rand wishes to get this over and done with because he prefers London and it's supply of loose women c

Pri príchode do Walesu, kde Randulf kladie základy svojho hradu Rosecliff sa stretáva so zanietenou Walesankou Josselyn ap Carreg Du. A už sa boj medzi nimi začína :-D

Kdesi som niečo podobné už čítala, aspoň taký pocit som mala pri čítaní tejto knihy. No páčilo sa mi to. Zvyšok recenzie nájdete tu: http://kokinakniznica.blogspot.sk/201...

Good historical fiction. I liked how Becnel described the conditions and conflicts women face in Wales in the 11 hundreds. Of course, being romantic fiction, everything works out.
