BEDDED BY HER LORD
Lynn's tale has a strong plot, a heartbreaking romance and an ending that leaves readers in doubt until the last page. Her fans will be intrigued at how she relates a battle scene from the first book in the series from another character's viewpoint.
Guy of Hartford fought and almost died to return to his home. But his homecoming is not what he wished. His men-at-arms question his identity, and his wife is about to give birth -- a miraculous event indeed, since he has been gone for several years.
Elizabeth thinks the apparition at her birthing bed must be a ghost. She was told her husband had died, and that's why she took a lover. But Guy is not as she remembers. He's older, his heart is harder and she must fight to win his trust.
Guy loves Elizabeth and takes the child as his own. He fights the urge to punish her for her betrayal, until he discovers the man who coerced her into bed was sent by a nemesis from the past -- and that past threatens the
fragile bond he's finally forged with Elizabeth. (Harlequin, Nov., 304 pp., $5.99)
