Description

Nowhere in medieval England are three women so powerful—or adored—as the heiresses of Fallstowe Castle: Sybilla, the ruthless beauty, Cecily, the pure-hearted innocent. . . And Alys, the youngest sister, whose wild spirit has yet to be matched. . .
Lady Alys thinks everyone knows the legend: If a man and a woman meet at midnight within the ancient Foxe Ring ruins, they are as good as married. But when she finds a captivating stranger lurking there in the middle of the night, she discovers the one man who is unaware.
It's a deadly pursuit that brings Piers Mallory to the Fallstowe lands. But now that fate has attached the alluring, and curiously insistent, Alys to his side, it may work to his advantage to play by her rules, at least for a time. Yet the danger Piers courts is no game—and the passion he and Alys share is all too real. . .
Praise for The Warrior. . .

        Starred review from January 10, 2011
        Grothaus (Taming the Beast) packs this medieval romance trilogy launch with humor and suspense. Lady Sibylla Foxe, the oldest of three sisters, betroths her youngest sister, Alys, to "simple, watery, whispery" Clement Cobb. Impulsive, spoiled Alys ventures out in the winter night to the Foxe Ring of standing stones, where legend says a man will join her under the full moon and become her husband. When Piers Mallory passes through the ring on his way to London, where he hopes to prove his birthright before the king, Alys is convinced they are married and joins him on the difficult journey. Piers and Alys's lighthearted banter evolves into enduring romance as they face numerous travails, and the fast-paced, well-crafted narrative hints at mysticism in enchanted forests. Grothaus's departure from the formulaic sensuality of many historicals makes this tale a delightful read.
