riveting suspenseful read where the villain is truly sadistic and the
reader experiences first hand the inner battles that warriors returning

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

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.
