To tame a shrew...
By king’s decree one of the de Burghs must marry the daughter of their fallen enemy. She’s a notorious hellion rumored to have murdered her first husband on their wedding night, and none want to be her second.
A scholar as well as a knight, Geoffrey de Burgh values knowledge as much as his sword. But he can’t explain why he’s drawn to the maddening woman he must make his wife. And someone wants him dead. Is it his bride?
Elene Fitzhugh would have no husband and vows to drive him away with the point of her dagger. But the gallant knight is unlike any man she has ever known. And she must arm herself against a new threat—the power of attraction.

The De Burgh Bride by Deborah Simmons
I recommend this Medieval tale of a marriage ordered by the King to keep peace‼️. It is neither welcomed by the gentleman groom nor his hellion of a bride! Get set for a sometimes funny, but mostly thrilling suspense as Geoffrey & Elene first find mutual respect, trust & more while Geoffrey investigates villainy & thievery amongst the knights & staff of the derelict manor he acquired‼️. Will Geoffrey rid them of those threats, work to heal his wife & their marriage!? And why are evil, dangerous attacks still occurring? Can a great romance bloom in such a hateful, suspicious atmosphere? Get you copy of The De Burgh Bride to find out👏👏. I believe you’ll agree with my 5-star rating❣️👍.
