THE WARLORD'S BRIDE
A colorfully rendered portrait of medieval Wales brimming with charming characters, an enchanting love story and the perfect balance of romance and history are what endears Moore to readers. She convincingly transports you to an era of daring heroes and the women who tame them.
Following King John's order, Lady Roslynn is to wed the powerful Welsh lord Madoc of Llanpowell, the "Bear of Brecan." The widow of a traitor, Roslynn doesn't expect to be wed to a young, handsome, kind warrior and is more than pleased with her new husband.
Madoc finds her alluring. Their marriage should be ideal, but shortly after her arrival strange incidents begin: Sheep are slaughtered and rumors of treachery abound. Roslynn is caught in the middle of a feud between Madoc and his outlaw brother, but more is at stake than they know as the real traitor wreaks havoc on all their lives. Roslynn might have tamed the bear, but can she bring peace to their land? (HQN, Jan., 376 pp., $6.99)
