A Reader's Opinion: CONQUERING WILLIAM by Sarah Hegger


Mystery and intrigue will have you turning the pages in this fast-paced story.

William of Anglesea and Lady Alice of Tarnwych are brought together in a marriage of convenience, each looking to fulfill different dreams and hopes. For Alice, this is her fourth wedding and she yearns for a child. William wanted a keep and lands of his own. Alice has only to look at her husband and realize that he's different from her previous husbands. He makes her feel, and the fluttering in her heart has her flustered. Alice isn't your typical chatelaine. Aside from doing her duty in the marriages her father has arranged for her, she knows nothing in running a castle. She feels honour-bound to Sister Julianna, the woman who has raised her from infancy, and has allowed her full rein of the castle. Sister Julianna runs the castle with a tight fist, and Alice as well. William has a way of stirring her passion and Sister Julianna is not happy, and tries to stir trouble and drive the newlyweds apart. Sister Julianna and William don't get along, and after certain events and accidents, he's almost sure that the "good " sister just might have something to do with it. Sister Julianna is evil and unhinged in my opinion. The passion between William and Alice is strong, and just when William thinks the layers that bind Alice are coming apart, the plot thickens!

Sarah Hegger is a new to me author and she has me hooked! This story was fantastic, and a definite must read!

A practical marriage...

He married for convenience, but William of Anglesea had hoped for more than piety from his new bride. Raised in a convent and thrice widowed, prim Lady Alice of Tarnwych seems like an innocent when it comes to the marriage bed-except for the tentative passion he senses in her touch, and sees in her eyes. It seems the bold knight has a new challenge in alluring Alice. But will seducing his intriguing wife lead to his downfall?

An inconvenient desire...

Everything about charming, free-spirited William defies the cloistered world Lady Alice comes from. Duty brings her to their bed-and a long-held hope for a child. Yet after three indifferent husbands, the desire William shows her awakens her own. Little did Alice expect the powerful feelings he would inspire, emotions that make her ready to abandon her rigid beliefs, and the only family she's ever known-when William's life is on the line....
