One Knight's Bargain by Alexandra O'Hurley
Sir Eustache of Rouen has spent the last three years trying to raise the funds to buy Sybille’s hand, only to stumble across her penniless father on his return to Paris. He buys the castle and all its contents, including the beautiful Sybille, the woman he’s longed for. But she knows of his bastardly reputation and he soon realizes he must show her his softer side if he’s to win her heart. Hopefully, he can find it.
Where to Buy
A fairly short tale that is decently well written, though a bit lacking in substance perhaps. The characters are developed fairly well though, such that you actually care about them before long, the heroine a bit more than the hero since most of it is told from her POV. I had expected something more erotic, and though there is heat between them, there is only on actual sex scene, and while it is nice, it's not totally scorching hot. Still, for the price (free), you can't really go wrong with this little story, provided you like historical romance set in medieval times.
