His Captive Princess
Author: Sandra Jones
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Release Date: 28 April 2015
Earned respect is sweet…but deserved revenge is sweeter.
Warren de Tracy was assured the Welsh village of Dinefwr would be an easy conquest, as would the widow of its fallen prince. Wedding her will appease the locals and win the respect of his liege, the usurper King Stephen.
Instead, Warren is ambushed, taken prisoner by a hooded Welshwoman with skin that glows like moonlight. If he must die at her hands, at least his honorable death will silence the whispers of disloyalty hanging over his name.
Princess Eleri has never seen a knight as stoic—and as eager to die—as Warren. She’d love to oblige the bastard, but something in his ocean-blue eyes stays her hand. Plus, suspicion nags at her, for the arrows that wounded him and killed his men are Norman, not Welsh.
A ghostly prophecy portends danger that thrusts the enemies closer together, where hate explodes into passion that won’t allow Eleri to surrender Warren to her vengeful clan. But returning him to his king breaks more than it mends…and for Warren, retaliation will be sweet, indeed.
Contains a Norman warrior with a thirst for justice, a Welsh rebel princess with second sight and a steady bow hand, magical prophecies, and a plot of royal proportions.
His Captive Princess reminds me why I love medieval romances. There's a lot at stake and often life or death situations, with a kick ass rebel princess for a heroine.
Eleri may be a Welsh princess but she was raised to be a lot more active than her pampered English equivalents. She can protect herself and others, and doesn't need a man to fight her battles for her. She's also a compassionate and strong leader. But she also feels undesirable as a woman after a disappointing marriage.
Warren needs to get back in the King's good graces, for himself and his family. So when he's captured by the Welsh the last thing he wants is to be released alive. Warren doesn't want to fight the Welsh, in fact he came to marry Eleri.
Warren and Eleri have a great chemistry which makes things hard for Eleri since he is her prisoner. He's her enemy but the more time she spends with him the less she thinks of him as a Norman soldier but as a man.
His Captive Princess is full of action and romance. I found it was a great medieval romance with an independent heroine and a noble Norman hero, who shouldn't be together but found they couldn't be apart.
