"Light hearted medieval romance"
He inherits his uncle's estate, but the will contains a
special clause ordering Hugh Dulonget to marry Lady Willa.
A highly regarded knight, Hugh can handle anything even the
most formidable enemy in combat. However, Willa is another
matter as he inadvertently insulted her when they first met
thinking she was a peasant.
His friends offer him advice when it comes to the ladies,
but they are warriors used to tossing a jewel to succeed in
bedding a wench. Willa's crone of a guardian tells him to
crawl on his wretched belly before pleading on his knobby
knees for Willa to forgive his transgression. However,
Hugh has always been his own man. Ignoring everyone, Hugh
wants Willa with him forever so he does the unthinkable.
He courts her to persuade her that the key to WHAT SHE
WANTS is the bliss of always being together.
Though the roles of the support cast seem more like two-
dimensional comic relief and the plot centers on a one-joke
phenom, readers will laugh loudly and long at the amusing
medieval romantic story line. The lead couple is a
charming pair as Hugh works harder than he ever did before
because the stakes are as high as he will ever face.
Previously he only risked his life, but now he must
convince the woman he loves that he desires her for herself
for the estate he gains if he wins her hand. Lynsay Sands
creates a humorous twelfth century romance that her fans
