The fiery, outspoken illegitimate daughter of Raybourne disguises herself as a boy to avoid the fate planned for her by Mikkel, leader of the Norman army. When he discovers her deceit, he takes her as his mistress. Edreia struggles between hate and love as her wanton heart betrays her in a tempest of passion and lust with her captor. A battle of wits ensues between Mikkel’s mistress and his betrothed; finally culminating in a diabolical plot between three of Edreia’s enemies to murder her.
Note by author: I have always had a love of English history, especially in the days of knights and chivalry. The violence, conflicts, and passion of the period offer abundant inspiration for writers. The high drama of such an interesting time in history made me eager to write a love story filled with dramatic human events and emotions, not unlike what lovers have experienced throughout history.
In essence, the past never goes away, but returns like the seasons to suffuse with the present and plant seeds of tomorrow.
Conquered with Love has a gothic setting, but the story is timeless inasmuch as it relates a tale about lovers, romance, and the conflicts characteristic to passionate relationships. Conquered with Love is a passionate romance novel woven with breath-taking suspense.
Abduction, rape, and murder set the prelude when Lord Raybourne of Valdenwald takes a young peasant girl as his mistress, who bears him a child called Edreia.
Sixteen years later, during the Norman Conquest, Mikkel, the Norman leader, wages a siege on Valdenwald, making Edreia his personal prize. Edreia’s life evolves into an emotional struggle when her freedom is usurped and she is expected to follow the wishes and commands of Mikkel, the new lord of Valdenwald.
Defiant and rebellious, she willfully does as she chooses, her actions provoking Mikkel to angry threats of retribution. Edreia’s recalcitrant tongue eventually challenges his patience beyond his control and he acts upon his threat, thus making her his mistress.
Vowing never to submit freely to his passionate nature, a conflicting struggle between hating him and loving him intensifies after Cadena, Mikkel’s betrothed, shows up unexpectedly at Valdenwald. A battle of wits ensues between Mikkel’s mistress and his betrothed; finally culminating in a diabolical plot between three of Edreia’s enemies to murder her.
Immersed in a web of violence, her shaky future allows slim hope for a life with Mikkel.
