New York Times Best Selling Author Lynsay Sands returns with the unforgettable story of a reluctant bride and groom who will soon find common ground in the bedroom....
Bastard daughter of the king, Rosamunde was raised in a convent and his wholly prepared to take the veil.. until King Henry declared she would wed Aric, one of his most valiant knights. Suddenly she found herself promising to love, honor and obey.
Rosamunde's education had not covered a wedding night, but the handsome warrior she was now bound to seemed intent on giving her a lesson in the art of pleasure. In no time, Aric was certain she would surrender to the irresistible passion he promised.
And while Rosamunde's spirited nature often put her at odds with her new husband, his mastery in seduction was quickly melting her resolve- and capturing her heart.
I have been in a funk lately and just couldn't find any historical romance reads that would keep my attention for very long. I picked a copy of Always by Lynsay Sands and it was just what the doctor ordered. I love that whenever I see Lynsay Sands name on the cover of a book I know it is going to make me laugh and fall in love and Always did just that.
The relationship between Rosamunde and Aric is a little tension filled at first. Aric was betrayed by his last love, so he has trouble trusting women and keeping her wedding vow promise to obey her husband becomes more and more difficult for Rosamunde. What she was told to expect in the marital bed by one of the nuns from the convent.. had me laughing so hard tears were streaming down my face. The connection these two shared was always there, but as they spend more time together it becomes a beautiful bond. This story has lots of humor (ie: a war horse with a cold wearing Aric's cape..-you need to read this for the full story) which is always a plus for me. I found myself quickly invested in this story and I turned the last page with a smile on my face. I am a sucker for a good happily ever after and it the ending was perfect!
I gave Always 5 STARS! If you are looking for a heartwarming story with humor, love and some heat pick up Always by Lynsay Sands, she never disappoints!
