There is little hope for sanctuary in the midst of the tumultuous Scottish border wars, yet one woman may find safe refuge . . . in the arms of her sworn enemy . . .
Jennet Graeme has witnessed terrible tragedy during the many years of strife between the Scots and the English. As Scottish invaders plunder her convent sanctuary, she defiantly resists the blond warrior who claims her as his prize. But his brute strength is overpowering and Jennet is forced to ride with him through the lawless lands, tending to the wounded, protected and desired by a man she wants to hate . . . but cannot . . .
Sir Hacon Gillard is moved by Jennet’s compassion and mercy. As a loyal knight, he’s pledged fealty to his king’s command, even as he loses his heart to this remarkable woman. Merciless in combat . . . yet there burns within him a spark for something far beyond the heat of battle
My Review: Conqueror’s Kiss is one of Hannah Howell earlier works. I have to say I am not a big fan of her earlier work. This book was good in some parts and bad in others. I really like the middle and ending of the book better than the beginning. Not to say that this book wasn’t interesting which it was. However, Jennet seriously got on my nerves I thought she was very judgmental. For a person who parents were rogues and thieves, Hacon should have been a prince in her eyes. Then again I maybe too hard on her, she did witness the murder of one of parents at an early age, and with no protection was a victim to kidnapping by Hacon and his men.
Hacon was a loyal knight to his king; he fights for coin and honor but not at the expense of his soul. Whereby other knights was killing just for the sake of killing, it was Hacon who tried to save as many lives as possible.
If you every read any of Hannah Howell’s books and after reading Conqueror’s Kiss you would see how Hannah’s writing style has progress during the years. So all in all Conquerors’ Kiss was an okay read.
