Master of Desire by Kinley MacGregor
rating: 3 of 5 stars
A few different twists in an otherwise average love story. Very good writing with lots of humor. One of the reasons I keep coming back to this author.
The only thing I found frustrating was that the heroine seemed to "pollyanna" and the author couldn't seem to decide if the character should be a naive virgin or a knowledgeable virgin.
Some of the dialect seemed it would have fit better in a Civil War/Deep South romance than a medieval England romance.

Synopsis: 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.
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 defenses 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?
