Publisher's Summary

The remarkable Lindsey magic is stronger than ever! The spectacular #1 best-selling author returns with a glorious tale of passion and duty set in medieval England.A betrothal has been announced that will join together Britain's two most powerful families - a union of wealth and influence to rival even the King himself. However, not only does the ambitious King John oppose this wedding, but Milisant and Wulfric - the intended bride and groom - are equally unhappy with the arrangement. Two passionate, headstrong people, they resent being thrown together for purely dynastic reasons. But fate's many twists and turns - and the unpredictable predilections of two unconquerable hearts - will turn an unwanted marriage of convenience into a true and eternal joining of desire and love.

So if you are looking for a good, solid historical romance, this is it! Nothing spectacular or unexpected but it's a good, solid story with great characters. The narrator could have been better though but it wasn't unlistenable.

Can't say there was a favorite. There were a number of scenes that made me laugh, made me cheer, made me smile

Any additional comments?

Most of the Lindsey novels translate well to audio. This one was particularly good. Now if only they would get all of the Lindsey novels on audiobook ... oh wait, I'd spend my entire paycheck buying them all.
