Publisher's Summary

1283 A.D. - Edward I is in the midst of his campaign to tame the Welsh, but rising from the chaos is a Welsh knight known as the Serpent. Bhrodi ap Gaerwen de Shera is a warrior of tremendous range and power. Descended from the kings of Anglesey on his mother's side and the earls of Coventry on his father's, Bhrodi is in the unique position of having Welsh royalty and English nobility. Edward knows he must make an alliance with de Shera. With that in mind, Edward calls upon the mightiest warrior of the north, the legendary William de Wolfe, to pledge one of his daughters to de Shera. William is honored by the king's calling; he pledges his youngest daughter, Lady Penelope Adalira de Wolfe, to be the Serpent's bride. But the Lady Penelope is no ordinary woman; raised by knights, she has been trained by the best and, in spite of her mother's protests, she fights like a knight. Exquisitely beautiful with dark hair and hazel eyes, she is an unearthly beauty and a fine legacy for the mighty de Wolfe. But Penelope has no desire to be a bartered bride and she resists the king's directive, but her reluctance is futile. Join Bhrodi and Penelope as they journey through a world where the greed of men breeds great hatred yet great valor. When Bhrodi is injured in a skirmish, Penelope steps in for her husband to lead the Serpent's men against the hated English and realizes she must face her own father on the battlefield. Will Penelope survive The Wolfe? Or will The Serpent's strike become her very own, conquering those she loves?

Wonderful story!

This was a wonderful story. It took a brilliant mind to write this tale and the best narrator in the business to put my heart in palpitations. The emotions were so powerful, it can grab a strong man by the throat and shake the tears and happiness right out of him. I loved, loved it! What a great pair....Kathryn and Brad Wills.

Don't waste a credit!

I stuck with this story because I thought it would get better and to be honest it was very hard to do so! The Welsh accents were beyond terrible! Seriously bad! The h and h were mediocre - I expected Penelope to be a very strong fighting character and she was pathetic character with an annoying accent and Bhrodi had no appeal whatsoever and didn't help that his accent was unrecognisable and terrible to listen too! Sorry but not a book I would recommend!

Absolutely love the series of the De Wolfe, De Russe, de Winter, de Lohr and dragonblade There has been only one book that I could not listen too and that was the narrator he was dreadful so I read it. Love Brad Willis's narrative s. I am slowly going through her books just down loaded two more. Wonderful stories. Wonderful characters, awesome reads.
