Review by Tiger Lily
Edward I summons his grandson, Alexander of Kent, to court for the purpose of orchestrating the kidnap of Princess Catherine of Scotland, the surviving heir to the throne, and marry her. An heir through her would give Edward both thrones.
Alexander takes on the task despite his hatred of the Scots. He ambushes the party and forces a surrender. Just as he's about to take the sword from the small lead knight, he's knocked to the ground by the knight. He gives chase and pulls the visor from the man's head to discover he's looking into the deep green eyes of a beautiful woman. Who has sent this golden angel into his arms?
The beautiful woman is Catherine.
He intends to wed her, but Catherine has other plans...
Two countries on the brink of war. A battle-scarred warrior. Will the love of one woman prevent one and save the other?
This title was previously published as a mainstream romance. It has been extensively edited and revised (now a Scorching-rated erotic romance).
She’s the heir to the Scottish throne. He’s bent on vengeance and punishment. Theirs is a marriage made quite a bit lower than heaven. Can Catherine handle the tough situation? Only if she’s willing to be The Warlord’s Woman.
Ms. Ranson writes a captivating novel. Her characters are full of spunk and drive. You can’t help but want them to succeed and find their heart’s delight. The scenes are rich, drawing the reader in from the first page and holding them captive until the end. The dialogue is crisp and punchy while still with an edge of passion.
I loved the character of Catherine. Her pluck and determination were refreshing. She wanted return to Scotland and did what she needed to make it happen. I wanted to see her get her happily ever after. I also liked Alexander. Formed by circumstances he didn’t orchestrate, Alex came across as hard with a soft interior. More men should follow his lead. He wanted his princess in order to fulfill another man’s wishes, but once he came against Catherine’s determination, he had to have her. Very sexy. The love scenes smoldered!
If you want a novel that will make you laugh, cry, squirm, and beg for more, then The Warlord’s Woman is the novel for you. I give this work 41/2 cherries.
