Erienne Fleming despairs for her future. Erienne is sold to the mysterious Lord Saxton, a sinister figure who wears a black mask to cover the hideous scars left by a fire that burned down his family mansion. He had a lot of screwed up perceptions about women thinking they don’t need to learn about the worldhe was the cause of his son becoming a cripple, because he fought Christopher to protect his “honor”, even though he really did cheat in a godamn game of cards and would never fess up.

She pulled a Twilight, really. Here is an example. Lol I always liked the song, so I guess it’s a good thing. View all 8 comments. And then Christopher Seton reenters Erienne’s world. Probably my favorite Woodiwiss novel, though I am planning to reread The Wolf and the Dove later this year with Andrea, so it could be a toss up. Avon Books Publish Date: Exploring new worlds one book at the time.

What is up with that cover, where is he leaning out from. I even love unnecessarily detailed descriptions Diana Gabaldon.

It was shaping up to be a story with the message that looks and reputations don’t matter, and you can find happiness in things you don’t expect. Thank you, bitchsdangerousfor the suggestion and I do hope you comment! He winrer a creep but he also had power, so he could get away with it, and in the time period of the story, people were not openly disagreeing or hostile.


The fact that she was even unsure who meant the most to her was jarring. And we know that Erienne is beautiful, but to exaggerate her beauty resulting in just about every man who looks at her “desires” her to the point of rapeis unrealistic.

I saw one one star review that says the book starts with a rape. It still provides me with hours of entertainment since this was also written when novels were expected to have a much longer word-count then now.

Whenever a Christopher scene was being set up, I’d just sigh, really hoping it’d go by quickly. The Complete Kathleen E. Two slitted holes had been cut for the eyes, two tiny ones for his nostrils, and kahleen row of small, square openings formed a mouth for the mark.
