Bedded By Her Lord ~ Reviews:
BEDDED BY HER LORD is a strong character driven medieval romance that grips sub-genre from start to finish. The story line is filled with angst yet remains fast-paced as Guy and the audience learns the shocking truth re his wife's lover. Sub-genre readers and historiographers will appreciate the sequel to COMMANDED TO HIS BED, as the same event covered in both historicals are seen somewhat differently by two people who were there. ~ Harriet Klausner
Denise Lynn's writing has matured indeed. Bedded By His Lord is passionate, historically intriguing, and plot-driven to hold the reader's attention, pleasure and admiration to the very last page! Congratulations again, Ms. Lynn - great medieval Harlequin fiction! ~ Viviane Crystal
BEDDED BY HER LORD is an intense riveting suspenseful read where the villain is truly sadistic and the reader experiences first hand the inner battles that warriors returning home might have experienced. The brutality does not include gratuitous violence or many graphic scenes, but rather, Denise Lynn does an excellent job at portraying the psychological inward drama within Guy at the same time as he stoically approaches his wife. Denise Lynn emphasizes the importance and extent of one's oath in her characterization of both Guy and Elizabeth thereby creating a historical romance that feels medieval in its examination of the values of its characters. The concept of the oath is examined here with a psychological depth that creates a bridge between medieval literature and the modern world of today's readers. In addition, Denise Lynn extends the notion of the oath, viewing the medieval concept in a both more intimate way between a man and a woman but also for its social implications for all those living in and supported by the keep. Denise Lynn also did an excellent job with the theme of communication and silence here, creating suspenseful emotional moments between Guy and Elizabeth as they battle to save their marriage and themselves from the wars and vicious villain that rage around them. BEDDED BY HER LORD is a wonderful, intense medieval historical romance that delves into the psychological devastation caused by war and brings darkness to the healing power of love. ~ Medieval Book Reviews
It is a testament to Denise Lynn's storytelling abilities I found myself thoroughly enjoying her reunited story, BEDDED BY HER LORD. Why? Well, I pretty much detest reunited stories. I am a big believer in true love, that whole soul mate thing, and I figure if a couple is destined to be together they ought to get it right the first time. So, maybe I am weird, but that belief is my theory and I am sticking to it.
Lynn's tale has a strong plot, a heartbreaking romance and an ending that leaves readers in doubt until the last page. Her fans will be intrigued at how she relates a battle scene from the first book in the series from another character's viewpoint. ~ Faith V. Smith for Romantic Times
