This book is the only reason I know anything at all about William the Conqueror in 1066.

Recommends it for: Romance/Medieval History Lovers
Fallon, the heroine of this romance and the daughter of King Harold of England, is one of the strongest heroines I have every encountered. She is fiery, stubborn, intelligent, skilled, and beautiful; too much for her own sake in all. She fights her enemy with a passion after her homeland is invaded by Duke Williams forces and her father is killed in battle in a most barbaric way. Her enemy becomes her lover, and still she fights to the very end. The hero is the epitome of the "alpha male." He is...more
Amid the Furious Cry of Battle, a Private War of Passion Had Just Begun . . .

Hastings; 1066. Clouds of war darkened the horizon as Saxons and Normans clashed with a vengeance.

Yet another battle raged ... as two sparring hearts collided ...

They were enemies from birth, their people divided by a bloodstained vision of power and glory: But when Alaric, a fierce Norman warrior, rescued Fallon from a bloody execution at the hands of the Normans, the fiery Saxon princess rebelled. She was determined t...more
I enjoyed Fallon and Alarics story but the hate went on and on and on. The story was great writing I don't deny her talent but I got tired of how hard Fallon fought to betray Alaric's loyalties. I enjoyed the tempest between the main characters and I love the flow of the story, even though sometimes I get bogged down with the details of history and await more about the characters themselves then the way the war is begin waged or fought but she is still a recommend on my list of authors and I am...more

I really could not get into this one. The constant fighting and arguments against each other as the two main characters was just irritating as all get out. I wanted to horsewhip the both of them and shove them off the nearest cliff.
Way too much war for me. I liked Alaric(main male) much more than Fallon (main female) of the book. She was just too much of everything. Too head strong, too persistant, too loyal to what was gone, and too unforgiving!
Really my all time favorite novel set during the Norman Saxon conflict. I have re-read this book several times and plan to again.

This is another one of Shannon Drake's books that I re-read over and over again!
I really enjoy the historical by Shannon Drake, this is a good read.
