This book was originally published back in the early 80's and I think you need to keep that in mind when you read the book. This book does have the her rape the heroine on her wedding night and if that kind of thing bugs you - stop reading and go pick out another book.

Overall I thought this was a pretty mediocre attempt at a medieval romance. We do have a strong female heroine in the book that I really enjoyed but the Hero is kind of a pig headed jerk. While he makes amends to get the HEA I'm not sure he ever really repents his Me Tarzan, You Jane attitude. Don't get me wrong, a little dominatime medieval knight is usually something I enjoy but he was so mean about it that I didn't find it fun to read.

The plot was very predictable but the medieval setting was enjoyable. As this is my first Jude Deveraux book I am definitely going to give another book a try. I figure all those good reviews out there can't be a fluke!
