House Toustain … House Maignart … two royal houses once embroiled in a bloody feud … Thirty years of peace now broken in an instant …
Sir Caden Maignart has been captured, beaten, locked in a dungeon, and wrongfully accused of kidnapping and oath-breaking. Determined to free himself and his men, and clear his besmirched name, Caden does not count on the willful nature of his captor, Lady Gwendolyn Toustain, the daughter of the man who was once his father’s mortal enemy. After several attempts at escape, the lady orders him bound and chained to a wall in her chambers—where he will remain under her personal guard at all times and kept from conspiring with his men. While the lady's high-handedness infuriates him, Caden cannot deny that everything else about her drives him to distraction. Forced into close proximity with her, Caden soon finds it hard to remember his mission of escape.
When Lady Gwendolyn of House Toustain first lays eyes on her prisoner, one thing about him is abundantly clear: Sir Caden of Daleraia is a dangerous man. Yet, she must show him no fear. The captured band of knights from Daleraia are her only clue in the mystery surrounding the disappearance of House Toustain’s sons, and it falls to Lady Gwen to seek justice. Is this kidnapping merely the ploy of mercenaries out for a ransom? Or has Sir Caden acted on the order of the High Lord of Daleraia and broken the peace? As she searches for the answers, she never expects the surge of passion that ignites between herself and her prisoner. The longer he remains in her clutches, the more Gwen realizes that though she has him chained, she is the one who has been captured.
The moment I started reading this book, I couldn't take my eyes of it. My eyes were glued to it. I read this whole book in one day. That is how drawn to it I was. The story was well thought out. It didn't leave anything behind and it left you with wanting to read more. The characters are well developed. My favorite are Gwendolyn and Esa. I enjoy reading about strong female characters. The names are hard to pronounce, but you will get use to it. Besides, I'm not used to reading such names, so of course I had trouble at the beginning. This book is a delightful read, so I do recommend it.
I need to know the rest!
What a wild ride. The sons of two kingdoms slain in a thirst for absolute power and control. A love forming
between two who cannot
be together. There is so much more, Chained is a roller coaster ride. Gwen is such a strong and confident
character. Caiden so regal and loyal to his friends; a true knight! Honestly by the time I was halfway through I was already sad that book two was not out yet. If you are unfamiliar with terms from this period, look them up as it makes the story richer. The chapter play out like scenes in a movie. Brilliant! Cannot wait for book 2!
