TO THE CASTLE
Genre: Historical Romance
Months before she is to take her final vows, nun-in-training Nell de Bonville is summoned home to attend the funeral
Nell is young, innocent and knows nothing of the world or the ways of men. But Roger is a gentle husband and waits until she comes to him before he takes his husbandly rights. Nell finds passion in her husband's arms and contentment in her duties as lady of the keep.
But with war looming, she and Roger face many challenges. It will put Roger and a father he thought dead on opposing sides and into a fierce battle for the right to hold the Earl of Wiltshire title.
Wolf's nice overview of the battle between Stephen and the Empress Mathild adds an accurate touch to a medieval love story. The inspirational overtures help to compensate for characterization and conflict than is less deep than Wolf's usual style. SENSUAL (Aug., 375 pp., $6.99)
