In the resplendence of William the Conqueror's London court, the lovely Saxon captive, Nicholaa, was forced to choose a husband from the assembled Norman nobles. She chose Royce, a baron warrior whose fierce demeanor could not conceal his chivalrous and tender heart. Resourceful, rebellious and utterly naive, Nicholaa vowed to bend Royce to her will, despite the whirlwind of feelings he aroused in her. Ferocious in battle, seasoned in passion, Royce was surprised by the depth of his emotion whenever he caressed his charming bride.
In a climate of utmost treachery, where Saxons still intrigued against their Norman invaders, Royce and Nicholaa revelled in their precious new love...a fervent bond soon to be disrupted by the call of blood, kin, and country!

Great Story. Weird Reader!
I've read this book in print a number of times and really enjoy it. However, the reader for this audiobook was Very distracting to the story. She reads the main male character, Royce, as being either bored or creepy. The main female character sounds like a whiny child or just a crazy woman. None of those are voices you want to hear in scenes that are supposed to be sweet, romantic or sexy! Bleh! Read this one instead of listening to it.
What a shame!
I could not believe how bad the narration on this one turned out. I have listened to Flosnik before and she was ok but this is not worth your time and I am a big fan of the old Julie Garwood romances. Skip this audio, go for the e-reader!!
I loved this book and was looking forward to listening to it but I completely agree with the other reviews...the narrator ruined this book and it was completely frustrating to listen to it! I love Julie Garwood, but this book on tape is not worth the money.
