In the wilderness of 14th century Northumbria, Lady Isabel discovers just how dangerous the Borderlands can be. With the loss of her voice and her hearing, there is little hope left for her. But when a brooding knight rescues her, she vows never to become a victim again and buries the secrets of her past in the hope that those hunting her will never find her in the Borderlands.
Jake is astonished to come across the beautiful Isabel, near to death, on his brother’s lands. Bringing her back to his brother’s home, he finds himself longing for something more from the courageous woman, something that he thought he would never want again. Isabel works her way into his scarred heart and opens Jake up to loving once more. But will Isabel’s secrets destroy their bond? And with his charismatic brother, Dominic, charming her, does he even stand a chance?
Ms. Holt has written another wonderful historical romance. With its well thought out characters, plot and the detailed setting, I felt as though I could visibly see the story unfolding before my very eyes.
Though it’s the typical chivalric lord saving a damsel in distress that begins the story, I applaud the author’s efforts for creating a situation that was unique. The heroine begins the story deaf and mute, and to see this couple attempt to understand one another is utterly endearing. Your heart will skip a beat, as you see this unending bond develop between this couple.
If you love historical romances with an edge of the seat storyline, you will not want to pass up a chance to read Borderland Bride by Samantha Holt!! It was well worth the read!
