On her wedding night, she screams for him to leave! Years later, he returns and wants his revenge. Yet he is entranced by her seductive and disdainful responses!

Hugh, Earl of Wynnedom, formerly Hugh of Ryebourne, was kidnapped and sold into slavery immediately after his wedding to Adrienna of Hallison. Years of torture and hardship have hardened him to one vision of justice, but he is hardly prepared for what he will experience when in the presence of his former wife. Meanwhile King Henry and Queen Eleanor have different plans for Hugh and Adrienna, politically correct marriages that will bring more land, money, and therefore power to 12th Century royal interests.

Can Hugh succeed in his bet with Adrienna that she will willingly come to his bed in one month, before Henry and Eleanor's will becomes fact? The plot is intriguing, spicier than you can imagine, dangerous as Hugh kills with his bare hands to protect and obtain what he is determined will be his! A few unpredictable, astonishing revelations about who is really responsible for Hugh's horrendous journey to this point will jolt the reader away from what initially appears to be a stereotypical tale.

In the Falcon series, Denise Lynn showed she could combine history and romance in a searing, wild, and passionate story. She has done no less in Commanded to His Bed. A new and different twist on passionate possibilities! Nice job, Ms. Lynn!
