Renaud came to conquer Braemere but what he didnt bargain for was a woman that struck every nerve ending in his body.
Aleysia thinks she's only giving herself to save her brother but finds love and happiness in a bizarre situation.

The sex between Renaud and Aleysia was scorching hot! they are so very creative in the art of making love. boobies! thats all i'm gonna say ;)

Sex Addiction in Medieval Times?

Sometimes lust can be incredibly unbelievable. Meaning...the situations in which is occurs are NOT BELIEVABLE. If you have lost your entire family in a brutal, bloody fashion, would you feel even an ounce of physical attraction to one of the blood smeared men who had been sent by the same murdered who killed your family? Probably not. Would you feel ANY desire to sleep with the man who was going to have your brother killed in a few days? Unlikely. Yet our heroine

This was a quick fun read. I love a bit of historical romance.

The H & h were both very likeable. The smut was hot & fun & got kinkier as it went on.

The story held it's own & didn't just feel like a vessel for the smut.

I will definitely read more by this author.
This book was ok; seemed like it was written in a hurry. Hard to care about any of the characters because their personalities were not developed.

Awwww, HEAs all around :) Loved this book. Definitely need a Wulf to "storm my castle" as Megs would say ;-P

This is my first erotic book read about a Norman and a Saxon. While I am reading I can't help comparing this book from Julie Garwood book titled The Prize. It has the same plot and same characters. In every turn of the page I felt the similarities of the two stories.

For the characters of the h/h. For me the heroine gave in easily and for the hero he is not too smart for me. It maybe an erotic story but still it has a story, not only smexy on it. It is like the smexy parts were only included jus

The Bargain...Hmmm!..well I have only read one other of Julia Templeton's books and I loved it very much as this one.I liked the first one I read called Somewhere in Time because it was a time travel romance book and I kinda like those,but this one was not but it was great though cause it was set in the times of Lords,Kings,Princessess and so on.I like that kind of romance books as well.Love to read more of her books.She does a lot of books for the Kindle.But their are times I like going back to ...more

This is by far one of my favourite books. The imagery painted by the authors words is amazing. Truly sucks you into the world that the characters are living. I for one could finish this book in one sitting and still wanna read it again. Must read and a must own book!! Once you read it your gonna wanna read it again! I think I have read it 5-6 times and it continues to be my favourite book!
love aleysia so much..i admire her courage, her loyalty to her twin..she did not lack guts. and renaud well was just completely taken by her, besotted with her. love the book very much, it was a light a fairytale
Lady Raven RAVE!
I loved loved loved it. Good read for me, i thought the main characters were great together and what a man not afraid to show his sensitive side. WORTH the read good for the collection.
The first book in Julia Templeton's The Bargain series. Erotica set in Medieval England. It sounded good but it didn't follow through on its potential for me.
Simple story line with many classic components I love: strong, independent woman gives her virginity under duress, then falls in love with her aggressor.
Lots of great reviews about this author and book...the book was at best scenes not even good. What are people thinking?
Good book! The heroine "gave in" a little too quick for my taste, but overall, a great story!

I was born in Crescent City , California , a small logging town on the Pacific coast, home of enormous redwood trees and clear rivers. I have great memories of playing on stumps the size of small houses on my grandmother's acreage in a little town just north of Crescent City called Fort Dick . My sister and I would take daily walks to the main street store—an old, tiny white building that included ...more
