THE MERCENARY’S BRIDE
Brisbin’s latest Knight of Brittany book is just as thrilling and passionate as the rest. There’s war and betrayal and treason, but love conquers all. Brisbin excels at immersing readers in history and bringing her characters to life.
As the new Baron and Lord of Thaxted, Brice Fitzwilliam is given lands, a keep and a bride — if he can find her. Gillian flees to a convent for shelter from her abusive brother and new lord, but Brice stands between her and the convent walls. Theirs is a hasty marriage to secure the land and the title. She doesn’t know what to make of her new husband. He’s fierce but not cruel like her brother and he is gentle and fair. Their attraction and passion blossoms despite the trials plaguing them. But all is not lost, as the lovers work together to defeat their enemies and build anew. (HARLEQUIN, Jul., 288 pp., $5.99)
