Elsinora, Mistress of Lyndower has gone without a husband for many years. Her ageing father, after losing his son and heir, has taken to drinking and gambling his sorrows away. Worry about his estate and for his daughter I feel has driven him to desperation. She is headstrong and intelligent, something that is more of a curse than a blessing in their time and her reluctance to accept an offer of marriage has all around her tut-tutting Elsinora for her inability to get her head out of the clouds and in to reality.
She believes she can manage the estate without the need of a husband but has no opportunity to prove herself. Reality means she will have to submit to marriage for only a man can inherit the estate. She lives in a world where a woman's opinion counts for naught, something she refuses to live by. When her father takes to the road again in search of a husband for his stubborn daughter, fate steps in to give her one hell of a lesson.
With a roll of the dice her life is changed forever, bringing Dominic, a Norman soldier, to her doorstep one evening. The news he brings upon his arrival soon shatters the dream world she lives in, though she resists discarding her lofty ideals immediately. Little do either of them realise that fate has already set them on a direct course for each other, smashing through the barriers they both had built around themselves.
With each barrier that falls between them, erotic treasures are discovered and it becomes increasingly difficult to guard their own heart from being found by one another. Their chaotic relationship is further put to the test by a third party, one who will not stand to see her with anyone else.
If you like a sizzling hot read where you know not what the next layer they reveal will bring, The Wagered Wench is what you are looking for.
This is the second book I've read from Georgia, the first being The Craftsman (The Conquerors) which I also heartily enjoyed. Both I recommend to readers fond of this genre. Erotic romps mingled with sweet, romantic tenderness that will keep you turning the pages is what I found. Discover the story for yourself, you'll see what I mean.
Ooh Dominic... /swoon.
It has been either the slow, ponderous romantic, historical fiction where when something finally happens with the characters...if you have managed to keep the book open that far, it is anti-climatic. Or, it follows a tried and true story line, usually written by men (why all of them are British, I do not understand) that takes the poor female creature beyond her humanity into a role of sex slave, or worse, an animal.
What a road I have travelled to finally find that there are such authors able to present erotic historical fiction with female characters with spirit and intelligence and male characters with rounded attributes beyond dominating with size, sex, and pain. And to actually have a plot too, believe me that is the cherry on the sundae of erotic fiction!!!
Georgia Fox has written a wonderful novel of an independent young woman, Elsinora, who is not willing to accept the social norms of her world (1082 AD) and believes that she has the intelligence and capacity to manage her family's property without a man, after her brother is killed in a bar fight. Apparently, the members of this family have difficulty in maintaining peaceful relationships. Unfortunately, because of the drunken gambling of her elderly and ill father, she is rudely made aware that circumstances in the form of a large knight, Dominic, who has now become the property owner of all he surveys, including her.
Fortunately, for Elsie, Dominic is unwilling to leave her or her people without his skills as a protector because he knows that the next man who might find her "off the beaten track" home, would not be so sincere. And that is the beginning of a story that is wonderfully written with historical accuracy, character growth, humor, great sexual situations, and, of course, tied together for the romantic at heart. (AVR)
However, Dominic and Elsinora are both great characters. I loved them both and really felt for them at times with what they had been through and were going through.
I was so happy to read their HEA and also get a glimpse into their future in the last chapter.
