THE MERCENARY BRIDE
Rating: 4 Cups
Lady Sabina of Angwyld is the eldest daughter of the Duke of Angwyld. She is betrothed to a man she despises. She runs away to the Abbey to live a life as a nun rather than marry a man as brutal as the Norman nobleman, Lord Reginald de Guillaume.
Robert de Tyre is a mercenary working for Lord Reginald. He is to find Sabina and bring her back to Reginald. Only when he meets her, the last thing he wants to do is return her to the Norman, for he wants to keep her for himself.
Treachery, backstabbing, and lies abound at every corner. Spies and death abound. Who is to be trusted? When Sabina is kidnapped, who can Robert turn to for help? Everyone seems out for themselves, not to save a woman.
So much adventure is wrapped in this short tale of love and revenge. To find love in such a time is almost a miracle. Robert and Sabina’s story is one of hardship and courage as well as lies and backstabbing. This is a story that you will enjoy anytime you need a getaway.
