Started out pretty good, but the leading lady who was supposed to be strong and spunky, became irritating enough, I wanted to slap her. Her name calling was forced and no longer cute by the end. And every action up to the last 10 minutes showed her to be a unrepentant gold digger. Then at the last second she is suddenly so in love she would give it all up for him.

I had no idea that Shayla Black wrote historical romance until I stumbled across this audiobook - I loved it! My only regret is that the rest of this series is not yet on Audible so I am (im)patiently waiting for the continuation :)
This book is set near the end of the War of the Roses and Aric Neville, famed Yorkist warrior and cousin to Queen Anne, has become disillusioned with the constant fighting, politics and bloodshed. Gwenyth is a saucy, beautiful, spoiled and stubborn yet hilarious character who is both irritating and loveable. As I came to understand her character (and her lamentable circumstances brought on by her cruel family) I was charmed by her creative insults, her refusal to be silenced, and her compassionate nature.
Shelley Bradley (a.k.a. Shayla Black) weaves a Phillipa-Gregory-meets-Sylvia-Day tale with skill, humor and sensuality. Tim Campbell is talented as ever in his narration of His Lady Bride. There is some explicit sex in the book but by no means does it take over the story-line. A well-written, sexy, medieval tale of love, politics, war, family, and duty. Keep them coming!!
