A Knight of Her Own by Oberon Wonch

 


SYNOPSIS: 

Sir Drogo LaForce has spent a lifetime chasing the family honor and wealth denied him by his bastard birth. A clever scheme to uncloak a traitor against the Crown finally promises to win him everything he desires…Lady Isabel has been in hiding ever since an evil Norman lord killed her father and usurped her English lands. But her plot to avenge her father and free her people is threatened when a mysterious Norman knight abducts her with plans to use her for espionage. Drogo’s fascinating captive is nothing like he anticipated. Outspoken but innocent, Isabel reluctantly submits to Drogo’s tutoring in the spymaster’s craft, as well as the art of making love. But their potent attraction nearly leads to disaster. In the end they must decide between their dueling appetites for riches and revenge…or love. goodreads-badge-add-38px 







Lady Isabel of Wulflandt has been living in hiding for 5 years avoiding the Norman knight who killed her father and took over their home and land.  With the help of a hermit, a friend and some of the peasants that have rebel against the current lord and cloaked under the myth of the Blue Lady, she’s been able to survive along with her sister Phoebe while plotting how to help her people and avenge her father’s murder.

When she’s ambushed and captured by Norman knight, Sir Drogo LaForce, Lady Isabel fears what will happen to them and will do everything in her power to escape.
Sir Drogo has been sent to find proof the current Earl of Wulflandt is plotting against the King and his plan is to get Lady Isabel into the castle to spy for him and gather the information he needs.  Unfortunately for his plans, she’s not the seductress myth claims her to be and he’ll find himself teaching the wild girl how to entrance and seduce a man which will place then both dangerously close to the flame either one wants to acknowledge.
This is my first book by the author and I honestly enjoyed every minute of it.  The writing is good, with such descriptive that you’ll find yourself immersed in the characters’ surroundings.  The banter between Isabel and Drogo, their passion defending their beliefs and the fact that they’re, not only opposed to each other in them, but her lady status to his bastard knight are also great elements to the story.
If you like historical romance, you’ll definitely love this book.  It has all the elements of romance, secrets and adventure that one will expect.  Isabel is a force of nature, strong and indomitable, ready to do anything for those she loves and Drogo is the perfect knight.  Tall, dark, handsome, brave and virtuous, a man carrying his secrets and past guilt he won’t soon forget, bound by honor, duty and loyalty to his king.  He is truly swoon worthy and he and Isabel are one explosive mix!
I’ve already added the first book in the series to my TBR and will definitely be looking out for the other Rogues of Rouen!

SYNOPSIS: A maiden's duty becomes a woman's desire... Comte Gregoire FitzHenri, the new Earl of Shyleburgh, is known for his prowess as one of the Norman conqueror's most favored warriors...but not for his romantic sensibility or his command of the English language. Gregoire looks forward to his imminent marriage with his seneschal's beautiful daughter, his longtime betrothed. But as a rough-hewn soldier, he wishes to enchant the elegant lady before taking their wedding vows-which means an interpreter...and much-needed lessons in courtly love. The clever Bridget of Shyleburgh has been secretly in love with Gregoire since his visit as a dashing young warrior-when he was promised in marriage to her sister. But when he returns five years later as their new earl, Bridget is tasked with translating for him-including his love letters and somewhat awkward attempts to woo her sister. Mortified at first, Bridget soon finds herself completely charmed by his whispers of love and desire. She never expected such tenderness...or such wicked temptation... from a man like him. Gregoire's heated missives tempt a fair maiden to stray down a path filled with forbidden pleasures. But his words are meant for another... aren't they?

Book Tour: Anti-Stepbrother by Tijan

Blurb
He told me to 'settle, girl.'  He asked if 'something was wrong with me?'  He said I was an ‘easy target.’  That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.  I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha. 
He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother. 
Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming. 
I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what would happen if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?
This is a story about a girl, her stepbrother and another guy who is the stepbrother’s complete opposite.  If it sounds like a cliché, I promise you it’s not.Summer is starting college and she’s going to the same college as Kevin, her stepbrother.  The small detail here? She’s had a crush on Kevin since HS, since before he became her stepbrot…
