vowed never to wed or bed nother woman nd this vow tortures him when he rescues Genevieve from her brutal betrothed Wedding her himself is not what he desires however it is the only way to return his lands to his ownership By Way Of A Wager and to see that she is safe from harm A delicious lovestory I loved how Genevieve captures his heart I felts though I traveled back to medieval Ireland when I read this book which is definitely plus for this history buff Ireland in the Norman conuest is n under utilized setting I felt s though I learned some things bout the ncient Irish which is lways good especially when the lesson comes in When Kingdom Comes an enjoyable storyStorylineBevan is man who lost much of what he loved in his life His beloved daughter dead from fever nd his wife burned to death in Norman raid And his land The Wayward Bride (Besotted Scots, appropriated by some of the Norman invaders He is determined to take his keepnd lands back nd that s how he meets Genevieve

that Hugh will kill her or rape her any longer to be rescued sure that Hugh will kill her or rape her She begs the rough looking Irish warrior she encounters to save her but he walks way he is fraid

gree to the match Either that or the evil Sir Hugh will gain his lands nd Genevieve s his wife nd will surely kill her with his brutality Genevieve grees to the marriage even knowing that Bevan cannot love her the way she wishes nd does not want real marriage with her only the lliance However Bevan cannot keep her heart closed to the loving courageous woman he marriedMy thoughts on this storyI had mixed feelings bout Bevan He was very honorable man capable of loving very deeply I truly respected his faithfulness to his wife You don t see that many heroes who remain devoted to their departed spouses the way he does However I wish he hadn t taken so long to open his heart to Genevieve It s clear that she is really good woman for him nd his younger brother Ewan Mr Darcy's Cottage of Earthly Delights: Shades of Pride and Prejudice actually thinks she s devotednd loves him than Fiona ever did This is one of those books where the character has this false perfect image of their past spouse that the hero or heroine has to break past It made me sad how Bevan hurt Genevieve gain nd gain by pushing her way Initially Genevieve is fraid of men fter how Hugh beat her nd hurt her but Bevan is kind nd takes care of her so well that he works his way into her heart Now Genevieve has to break down the walls The Cat Who Lived with Anne Frank around Bevan s heartnd show him that he can love The Myth of Genesis and Exodus and the Exclusion of Their African Origins againThis was good book I found myself sucked in from the beginning Genevieve nd Bevan had excellent chemistry I found Hugh to be despicable villain nd I wanted him to get his just deserts fter seeing him beating Yoga Kitchen: Divine Recipes from the Shoshoni Yoga Retreat and hurting Genevieve the way he did I wasfraid that her father would Lady in danger but how far will he go to keep her safe Marriage would benefit them both yet he has sworn never to love Design Works: How to Tackle Your Toughest Innovation Challenges

Ake Hugh s side but fortunately he didn t standing by his daughter nd believing her when she said Hugh was busing her I can t imagine father who would willingly let his daughter get bused by man So I Was Glad Genevieve S Father I was glad Genevieve s father t like thatI enjoyed this book I liked reading bout medieval Ireland which had some customs nd ways of looking t things that were distinct from England t this time I liked both of the characters The romance between Genevieve nd Bevan was engaging nd I felt their emotional struggles nd nguish It was good to see Bevan
