  1. Born British and raised in South Africa, Sarah Hegger suffers from an incurable case of wanderlust Her match A hot Canadian engineer, whose marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met Together they ve made homes in seven different cities across three different continents and back again once or twice If only it made her multilingual, but the best she can manage is idiosyncratic English, fluent Afrikaans, conversant Russian, pigeon Portuguese, even worse Zulu and enough French to get herself into trouble.Mimicking her globe trotting adventures, Sarah s career path began as a gainfully employed actress, drifted into public relations, settled a moment in advertising, and eventually took root in the fertile soil of her first love, writing She also moonlights as a wife and mother.She currently lives in Draper, Utah, with her teenage daughters, two Golden Retrievers and aforementioned husband Part footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah s restless heart is most content when reading or writing books.

  2. I saw this book listed as to read on someone else s list on and thought it must be a great clean romance, or they wouldn t have listed it I was wrong Part of me wants to give this 4 stars and yet this book is not clean and the lower rating is a warning to my friends and family It has interesting characters and an intriguing story line but I really could live without all of the bedroom scenes I will be deleting this book from my library So, for all others to read this review, you will have a bett [...]

  3. A good readA good readIt s a well written book with well rounded characters The book will grab your attention and not let go The history is accurate except for 1 minor detail which the author apologizes for at the end in the author s note I am surprised this book had no ratings at the time I read and wrote this one.

  4. On the plus side, the storyline is refreshing and the time period is new to me, as most of my historical romance reads are either regency or Victorian The downside is that I didn t like any of the characters, with Helena in particular grating on my nerves I know that writing strong female leads is all the rage these days, but here we just have stubbornness paired with stupidity As for Rosalind ugh.

  5. I had the pleasure of devouring this little medieval morsel and wow I am so excited to tell you all about it.I ve been reading historical novels for a long time Medieval times are one of my very favorite types to read, especially when there are strong spunky heroines In those times, I think you d have to have a pretty strong backbone as a woman just to survive I can t imagine it any other way Plus, they are so fun to read Helena is one of these women She had my heart from scene one, battling her [...]

  6. An Unwanted Marriage Turns to LoveSet in England in 1153, this is the story of Helena of Lystanwold, whose uncle has fallen out with King Stephen and fled England, leaving his castle and his niece to Guy of Helston We are led to believe Helena s uncle somehow managed to marry her to Guy before Guy arrives Helena called Nell is not happy as she already had a man picked out, one she can manipulate, whereas Guy, a warrior, is the Scourge of Farringdon.Guy goes about his new duties with few words fo [...]

  7. I really dislike stupid womenOr men for that matter The female protagonist of this early medieval piece is Helena, a 22 year woman who is willfully and ridiculously head strong and hot tempered So much so in fact that she endangers herself and others multiple times in the 72% of the novel that I read before I got disgusted and quit The aggravating part is that she knows this about herself but continues to act childishly throughout the novel It s not that she doesn t have some legitimate complain [...]

  8. JESU.This is the first medieval story I ve read since history class in high school that is I cannot begin to explain how well written and thought out this story is I will try not to list any spoilers here Helena is a strong, stubborn, passionate woman, proving capable of not only taking care of herself, but everyone she loves at Lystanwold Guy is he is fantastic From the moment he climbs into Helena s bedroom with her uncle and she says Who are you only to be answered with He s your husband I wa [...]

  9. A fairly straightforward historical romance set during the wars between Stephen Empress Maude Helena of Lystanwold is married by proxy to Guy of Helston They didn t even meet until after the wedding day Guy s motive is to possess Lystanwold, which he does once he s married to Helena Helena s uncle s motive in pushing for the proxy wedding is to give Helena protection from the grasping, cruel Ranulf, near neighbour with his beady eye on Lystanwold and the earldom.Yeah, OK it s not as if you haven [...]

  10. If you are a fan of The Wolf and the Dove, you will enjoy this book by Sarah Hegger Wulfgar s part is played by Guy, Aislinn is Helena, and there are even similar protagonists the wimpy ex fiancee, the vampy ex mistress, and the dastardly foe This book is shorter, so it has fewer minor plots and less emphasis on description, but the feel of the medieval era comes through very well It is set in 1153, just as Empress Matilda Maude is trying to wrest control of England from King Stephan Shifting lo [...]

  11. I don t think I ve picked up a romance set in medieval times since my last pass through Karen Marie Moning s Highlander series Sarah Hegger s, The Bride Gift, got me back in the grove quite nicely In fact, this book reminded me a lot of those older KMM books Spunky heroine check Hot, wise hero check Damn good story and solid characters check and check.Super solid debut And I hear she s got a lot coming out soon I ll be sure to pick those up too.

  12. Great Read I say, if you like stubborn, spoiled, loving females with a lot of big, tall handsome knight, that knows how to love a woman, this is a very good start to drool over.But truly, this is a very good read I had a hard ti.e putting this book down.

  13. Loved this bookThis book actually has a story This isn t just a bodice ripper.I enjoyed this book and I will look for Sarah Begged books again.

  14. It s wasn t executed well, unfortunately The dialog was offdern phrases modified with a few old sounding words Like Oh, be silent to replace oh, be quiet The plot is good, the setting seemed realistically historical enough, and I liked the heroine expect for the fact that she acted way too immature at 22, especially for that time period She always seems to be throwing a tantrum instead of worrying about her subjects She could have been a good character She s feminine but still trying to keep hol [...]

  15. Set in th 1100s in England, this is a tale of the time when Queen Maud of Scotland was challenging King Stephen s claim to the thorne of England The story begins with Roger, Eral of Lystanwald, exiled by King Stephen, sneaking into his own keep and waking his heir, his niece, Helena, to tell he that 1 he is exiled and 2 that he executed her marriage to Guy of Helston, aka The Scourge of Helston Roger is trying to protect Helena and his people from Ranulf, and evil earl in a neighboring earldom w [...]

  16. The storyline is intriguing, and as a history major I really find the historical period interesting However, the history as written here isn t all that well taken into account and really has little to do with the storyline as written It s mostly a story about a way too overly stubborn and willful young woman and the we are told many times very tough guy Guy she is wed to for her protection It made me crazy that she didn t just work with him to save her keep and keep the villain out of the pictur [...]

  17. Fast paced and well written Most of the characters were well developed and interesting There were places where the story line was a bit contrived, however, with people taking actions that seemed a bit forced, and with out of the blue plot turns, especially at the end Spoiler alert don t read any further if you care E.G Who knew Henry was missing And how likely is it that Guy would have recognized him from having been in a battle against him Isn t war a bit too chaotic for checking out faces Sudd [...]

  18. I enjoyed this book I love historical romances and this is at the top of my list It has a unwanted marriage on the bride s part , which leads to trouble Leave it to her uncle to know what is good for her Helena is willful and refuses to accept her husband Guy is a war harden knight longing for a home The two make a very interesting pair But of course, there is a happy ending.

  19. Delightful storyI loved this story Strong, believable characters and the kind of man every women wants and deserves Loved that neither of them could be pushed around or weak in the mind Story line grew and finished nicely Fun read with glass of wine and open mind to fairytale love.

  20. Delightful story.Strong independent women put in shocking circumstances by an uncle whom loved her He knew she needed a very strong good man to take care of her Which he did but it took time for his feisty wife to realize it This story has well developed characters , great plot and overall enjoyable read.

  21. What a surprising find There are a couple times in the book where the heroine turned stupid to fit the plot and a few times where I knew too much about medieval history to believe the characters, but the book pulled me in.

  22. I enjoyed this story even though Helena couldn t seem to get out of her own way she was so headstrong that it is a wonder she wasn t killed in the very beginning I gave it five stars because I love these kind of stories but I wish she would have listened at least once in a while.

  23. A well written fun Adventure complete with knights, castles, damsels in distress, a king, a kidnapped prince, a traitorous relative victim of his own homosexuality , and a dastardly villain I thank the author for a few hours of entertainment and escape That was one Thrill of a ride.
