    At 17 Lady Mary has a lot of responsibilities heaped upon her shoulders She's lost her parents and her older brother to the conquering Norman's and is responsible for the dilapidated Almswick manor her near starving people and her two very young sisters She is looking forward to her betrothal to a fellow Saxon Lord Albert a man she believes will be an asset to her people and a good match for her despite the fact that she's not really head over heels in love with him Little does she know that the betrothal has become null and void thanks to King WilliamStephen Dubois' years of hard work as a mercenary soldier are about to pay off in a big way He's recently been given Almswick manor and its lady and he is anxious to claim both Surprisingly things don''t go nearly as well as he's planned Mary is not enthused with her new intended husband and doesn't hesitate to let him know it She's lost everything to the brutal Norman's and will not easily submit to the enemyAlthough Mary is attracted to Stephen they have a hard road ahead of them Mary is very young very headstrong and her life has been shattered by the Norman's Stephen is a domineering man who expects his orders to be obeyed without question Fortunately for us readers and Mary he's all bark and very little bite and underneath that rough exterior he is quite a marshmallow It's that soft side that eventually breaks down Mary's barriers and allows her to heal and open her eyes to true loveI must admit that I'm the type of reader who prefers a kinder gentler hero but much to my surprise I found myself enjoying the alpha Stephen's displays of manliness Oh he's definitely bossy and gruff and yes sometimes he's even a little rougher than necessary but he thankfully doesn't cross the line into nasty or abusive He's a decent man who feels regret and he knows how to apologize As a result he was darn near impossible to dislike If you enjoy a take charge hero with a heart of gold you really can't go wrong with this guy The way he unwillingly kowtows to Mary and then wants to kick himself made me laugh out loud at times He's preciousMary is a young heroine in emotional turmoil one whose youth and backbone tend to get her into trouble She's suffered tragedy upon tragedy and finally when she's gotten her future somewhat settled in walks Stephen who turns her life upside down She's upset with this impossible situation and reacts with emotion often not thinking through the consequences of her impetuous actions Stephen's strong personality does not initially bring out the best in her Eventually with experience and a lot of love and patience she learns to trust Stephen and discovers who her real enemies areCONQUEST OF THE HEART is a fast paced ultra sexy romp that is probably not for the faint hearted The bloody and treacherous darkness of the medieval period is brought to life in vivid detail and the villains are horrible creatures who do and think unsavory things that the reader witnesses However if you like your romances filled with explosive sensuality and have a fondness for strong and kind hearted heroes you'll probably like this one a lot

    Meh it was kind of cute but Mary was two separate characters There was the one who was in love with her neighbor and wanted peace and the feisty Fury who fought her enemy Neither aspect felt believeable
