A Dream of Desire Awakened...
Beautiful Lady Emily dreams of the rapture of love and the joys of marriage. The youngest daughter of an English lord at war, she is shaken by the arrival of a mysterious stranger to her father's castle. Could this breathtaking man be Emily's yearned-for lover? Indeed, Draven de Montague, Earl of Ravenswood, has come for Emily...but romance has nothing to do with it.
In the Tender Embrace of an Enemy...
Draven would never have entered the home of his most hated adversary had not the King himself ordered him to take in his foe's daughter for a year to forge bonds of peace between their two feuding houses. Worse still, here is a lass whose exquisite loveliness could tempt Draven to betray his sworn vow never to let anther close to his heart. Emily knows the searing heat of her passion could burn down the defences of this proud warrior. But will the surrender of the sweet nectar of his lips and his bold, sensuous caress ignite a blaze so hot it consumes them both?
This was a fantastic book, and I loved rereading it! I just absolutely loved that scene near the end, to prove his love, he stripes all the way, even though earlier in the book, he had mocked the tale that his future actions was based on. Just hilarious!
Loved both of them, well, all the good guys, actually, that had real book time, because they were just hilarious, I think they were more impertinent, then people really were at that time, but yeah, it was just so fun, what they said, they were so sarcastic!
Their romance was just amazing, because yeah, he believes himself to be cursed with his father's blood, because his mom was killed by his dad, and he had decided that he wasn't going to marry someone and put them at risk. But Emily changed his mind, yeah!
The whole conflict between her dad and Draven, the one that led to Emily being told to spend a year with Draven, who is really behind it, and how they got the 2 of them to fight each other, was fiendishly clever, if really evil! But in the end, they figure it out!
Yeah, I absolultely loved rereading this book, and I can't wait to rereread the rest of the series!
