He was for sale -- a slave forced to do the bidding of others. She was a lady, a woman bent on vengeance. A woman in need of help. Not the ordinary kind of help. What she wanted to do, what she had to do, did n. What she wanted to do, what she had to do, did not require commonplace skills.
It required courage that took no account of either the odds or the risks. Her idea was every bit as reckless as the slave's bravery. No matter the cost, she would never be at the mercy of anyone's will again. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Nov 01, Sarah Winters rated it it was ok. To be honest I picked this one up because of the pretty cover I know, bad Sarah! Covers are not a good judge! The author seemed awkward with her words choices and sometimes used a form or tense of a word that made no sense in the structure of the sentence. The characters really didn't have a lot of umph and story was just average. Desperate girl buys hunky boy in hopes of convincing him to aid her cause. Shit hits the fan. They hook up. The bo To be honest I picked this one up because of the pretty cover I know, bad Sarah!
The book wasn't really worth the deceptively pretty cover sadly. They will always be there and even if they were not, even if it were possible to be rid of them it would not matter. Because they are nothing to what is on the inside.
I'm usually a fast reader but this story made me slow down and take breaks, instead of my read in one to three sittings. The tone can drag you down at times as a lot of the action takes place from our hero and heroine's internal thoughts but it ramps up the emotional aspects.
The writing style won't be for everyone but if you can let the characters and setting seep into you, you'll enjoy and get lost in Rowena's struggle to survive as a woman in limited power and the thrall Wulf she buys to help her. The author did a good job with the power dynamics, Wulf is the slave but as a man and more strength than Rowena, he has his own sense of power.
Their relationship was slow burning and sparking at different turns and as most the story depends on them together, their chemistry does not disappoint. Rowena was a great heroine who acknowledges and uses what powers she has and while I liked Wulf, I would have liked his backstory to have been revealed earlier, would have filled out his character more. You will definitely enjoy the historical aspect of the story.
The author does an incredible job setting the time and place with harvest festivals mentioned, terminology, and even an inclusion of King Ines who I think gets overshadowed by Alfred the Great too often. There's heat, passion, and betrayal in this one. I enjoyed going to a different time and place and while the tone and slower pace may not be for everyone, if you're looking to escape the typical romance, this one would fit the bill.
Jan 16, Keta rated it it was amazing. This book was recommended by some fellow authors. I was not disappointed. I thought it would be explicitly erotic and it wasn't, but the writing is masterful. Her prose sparkles and she deftly weaves the emotional toture of the characters into a love story. Highly recommended. Shelves: historical-romance , medieval-romance , sexy-warriors , favorites. Lady Rowena, the beautiful daughter and sister of, a now dead, noble father and brother lives for nothing, but her obsession for revenge.
A revenge she intends on gaining from the King's Reeve, the one responsible for the deaths of her beloved family. Although the Reeve has his own desires when it comes to Rowena, he is very oblivious to Rowena's own desires as pertains his own person. Rowena believes she has the perfect plan to exact her revenge from the traitorous Reeve, especially when she co Lady Rowena, the beautiful daughter and sister of, a now dead, noble father and brother lives for nothing, but her obsession for revenge.
Rowena believes she has the perfect plan to exact her revenge from the traitorous Reeve, especially when she comes across a slave at the slave market. This thrall will be much more to her than just an obedient slave. He will see her desires come to fruition.
Now, if only she could ignore her struggling conscience, not to mention the passion that flares whenever she is close to her new slave.
Wulf has seen his own destiny turned on it's ear. He has fallen from the heights of heaven to the lowest levels of hell, and there is where he knows he belongs. His future, or lack of one, has been crystal clear in his mind, until the emergence of his new mistress.
She stirs passions he thought long ago forgotten. More disturbing, she has made him question his own destiny. Although he may deservedly be part of the lowest wrungs of humanity, Wulf cannot cut-out the honor and integrity which had been ingrained in him since his existence.
He will bargain with the cunning Lady, but only to gain the promised freedom to pursue his own revenge. While he has no doubt he is strong enough to fight the lust she inflames, it's the allure of her desire for justice which he fears he may not conquer. A true Prince to pauper back to Prince type of story. A more wonderful story than I expected from the outset.
Helen Kirkman has painted characters with true soul-stirring troubles, yet are strong enough to overcome their adversity. Characters with real weaknesses. Yet, those weaknesses only add to the realism and deepen the characters themselves. The setting of this romance is a little older than the typical medieval tale which adds some variety. A unique 4-star romance which may be an oldie, but definitely a goodie.
