"Heartwarming story of love and acceptance!"
The war between Geddyn and Tarryn has been going on for way
too long. While on her way to the hospital where she's
working, Maire was grabbed by a man and unknowingly, gave
her virginity to none other than the Black Baron—the man
all her countrymen hate and fear. After he took her
maidenhead, the Black Baron left Maire to his second-in-
command, who almost killed her before the Black Baron
Ten years later, Maire has been reduced to barely existing.
After the death of her husband, her life has been one of
hardship. Now taking in sewing in order to trade for her
one meal a day, Maire knows things will only get harder
with winter coming on. One night as she's sewing a shirt,
some Tarryn soldiers come in her hut with a wounded man.
Imagine her surprise when the wounded man turns out to be
none other than the one who took her innocence all those
years ago. Now Maire is faced with a moral dilemma—should
she use her skills as a healer to help the Black Baron, or
should she do her best to ignore him?
Ever since he took her innocence and left her to the less-
than-tender mercies of his second-in-command, Deklyn Yn
Baase has been searching for Maire. Ten long years, he
searched through all the women he came across to find her
and now he ends up in her poor excuse for a hut when he's
wounded. See, Deklyn knows she is his soul mate and would
do anything to have her with him.
Will Maire and Deklyn ever be together? Will Maire be able
to love a man her people see as the personification of
their enemy? Will Deklyn's wife accept a relationship
between her husband and Maire or will she come up with a
plan to make Deklyn even more miserable than she already
WINDWARRIOR: THE WINDWORLD SERIES Book 7 is a wonderful
story of acceptance and love. Charlotte Boyett-Compo once
again comes through with a tale of a love meant to be.
Everything the two of them must go through just proves the
depth of their love. I really admired the way Maire dealt
with everything that happened in her life and won everyone
over. Of course, with the light, we must have the dark,
which in this case is Deklyn's wife. And she is definitely
dark. Have to admit, I did cry at the ending. I cannot
recommend this story highly enough.
