Betrothed to the Enemy by HC Brown
Betrothed by the Enemy was a combination I love and feel is never often explored in books today. Based around the Saxon/ Norman conquer in England (1070) with elements of steamy romance and a fight.
Forced to succumb to her new Norman King, Saxon lady Angela of Parr becomes in a way an advocate for all the women of youth and the ability to produce an heir to force them into marriage with his knights.
I thought the concept would be a little predictable but taking it further back in history meant it really worked within the context of the story, every turn made each part of the short story enjoyable.
I loved how the author played on the emotions within this short novella by making the heroine jealous at certain points as I believe it added to the believability of the love story.
I would recommend this read for anyone looking for a quick, enjoyable read which will leave a smile when you put it down.
