One knight to capture her heart Alinor of Claverstock takes her life in her hands when she rescues Bianca d'Attalens from her stepmother's evil clutches But. The plot seemed interesting enough at first glance and being the sucker I am for historicals of all varieties I dove in I kind of wish I hadn tThe book wasn t bad at least not outright It was pretty ok in the beginning a bit confusing if I m honest with how it opened and honestly the way the heroine reacted to the knights went from understandable to ridiculous in no time And to have the Prince Edward hit her even though she had turned hysterical by then really bugged me but so that the hero just it brushed away like it was nothing even though he regretted not being able to move her away from Edward in time to soften the blow Him staying with her till she regained consciousness I guess was supposed to make up for that flaw and although given the time era and the fact Edward was basically a temperamental little boy the whole book explained why he hit her it was still something that bugged meGuilhem s sister felt like a flat character to me And the heroine Oh boy Half way through the book I was so frustrated with her childish antics or tantrums or whatever she said to Guilhem By half way through the book she was feeling like one of those TSTL heroines and I just kept rolling my eyes The scene where they make love at the atrocious inn right after the smarmy inn keeper tried to make unwanted advances on her which was the second time this happened after her step brother Eurostace tried to rape her earlier in the book Only to be saved by Guielhem again I felt it was poorly written and naturally he feels like he isn t worthy of her because of his dark tortured past and she s sigh naive enough not to believe in herself or her own beauty evil stepmommy s fault naturally and so after the act she is all glowing and happy and then he apologies and she immediately thinks he doesn t want her and no one does and he was apologizing because the man took her virginity on the floor of the dirty ass inn after tossing the inn keeper who snuck back in her room when he left to get her some clean bed sheets to have his nasty way with her in typical villain fashion It was a poorly timed burst of passion in the story in my opinion The hero was probably the only person I truly liked in the book The heroine just came off to naive and ridiculously overdramatic at times especially with the hero And did I mention the book ended abruptly No Well it did Not that I m sore over it Just put off that the whole reason they were at de Montfort s camp was left hanging wide open while they confess to one another how much they love each other much to each others surpriseblech At least I managed to finish it so cookie for me

When Alinor encounters Bianca's handsome brother Guilhem Duc d'Attalens it's not just her life that's in danger Alinor finds herself powerless to resist Guil. A broken axel on a narrow bridge put Lady Alinor of Claverstock and her cartload of abbey grain right in the path of the formidable Guilhem Duc d Attalins Lady Alinor is not one to back down from a challenge whether working at the nunnery nursing the sick or defending the abbey s grain against Prince Edward s soldiers Mastering her feelings around the strong and stoic Guilhem might be too difficult a task for even her strong will Guilhem is immediately drawn to Alinor s fiery spirit all the so after he happily learns she isn t a real nun but he daren t make her his own because of a secret shame staining his past The two are drawn together as ueen Eleanor and Prince Edward s political web closes in around them Finally their mutual passion is too potent to ignore Medieval historical romance can be a tricky genre for the modern author to negotiate These days the hero must be than simply handsome strong and rich He must also be intelligent compassionate and if not actually a feminist at least willing to concede that women should be treated with unflagging respect This is a tall order for a thirteenth century knight even a fictional one Similarly the heroine is no longer allowed to be a doe eyed object of desire but must be an adventuress in her own right Meriel Fuller makes an admirable effect to tell a thirteenth century story for a twenty first century audience Alinor is independent and feisty and is also a target for the casual violence against women that was very much a part of her world Guilhem admires Alinor for unconventional behavior but even he uses his size and sex to intimidate her To his credit he is afterwards ashamed of his dishonorable behavior What Fuller creates in Commanded by the French Duke is a fantasy of medieval romance where the hero follows a code of chivalry updated for the twenty first century
