What a heart wrenching bodice ripper Seeing the reviews here in GR made me think twice on reading it but I m glad I did because it was a magnificent read It is different from my usual taste of a lovey dovey historical romance where the heroine gets what she wants This one is brutal in a lot of sense regarding Alwyn s marriage to the perilous times of being a knight I guess the reason for it s low ratings were the absence of love between Alwyn and Fulk It isn t a cookie cutter romance but What a heart wrenching bodice ripper Seeing the reviews here in GR made me think twice on reading it but I m glad I did because it was a magnificent read It is different from my usual taste of a lovey dovey historical romance where the heroine gets what she wants This one is brutal in a lot of sense regarding Alwyn s marriage to the perilous times of being a knight I guess the reason for it s
