Conqueror's Kiss

Conqueror's Kiss by Hannah Howell (2006)

Description: Jennet Graeme has witnessed terrible tragedy during the many years of strife between the Scots and the English. As Scottish invaders plunder her convent sanctuary, she defiantly resistes the blond warrior who claims her as his pize. But his brute strength is overpowering and Jennet is forced to rude with him through the lawless lands, tending to the wounded., protected and desired by a man she wants to hate... but cannot...

Sir Hacon Gillard is moved by Jennet's compassion and mercy. As a loyal knight he's pledged fealty to his king's command, even as he loses his heart to this remarkable woman. Merciless in combat... yet there burns within him a spark for something far beyond the heat of battle...

Review: I really enjoyed this novel. The story surrounded a most interesting part of the history of England and Scotland. The characters were developed well and I really cared about them. I could not put it down and had to keep reading until it was done. This book is one of those you will want to read over and over.

Score: 4.5 out of 5
