Book Description:
Reluctant Bride
By the king's order, Lady Tanon Risande is to be wed to a fierce Welsh prince. Headstrong Tanon has other ideas, and none of them involve submitting to Prince Gareth ap Owain. Yet she can't help but notice how the ladies of the court sigh at his mere glance. And when this rough warrior sets his penetrating gaze on her, Tanon, too, wonders what it would be life to bed a barbarian...

Lady of Desire
Gareth is determined to prove to his delectable new wife that he saves his savagery for the battlefield, not the bedchamber. He will use far more persuasive methods to lure this lady willingly into his arms - and he looks foward to tring them all. But though Gareth is a prince, he cannot offer Tanon the finery she is used to, nor can he be sure she will be safe in his untamed land. What he can guarentee her is a love unlike any she has ever known....
