He never lost a battle until he met the one woman who might succeed in... Charming the Prince.Dear Reader,My enemies know me as Lord Bannor the Bold, Pride of the English and Terror of the French. Never in my life have I backed down from any challenge or betrayed so much as a hint of fear--until the war ended and I found myself a reluctant papa to a dozen unruly children.Realizing that I couldn't lop their little heads off or throw them in the dungeon, I sent my steward out to find them a mother and me a bride--an attractive, meek, maternal creature too plain to tempt me to get her with child. You can imagine my horror when he returned with Lady Willow of Bedlington, a spirited beauty who made me think of nothing else!With her cloud of dark curls and the sparkle of passion in her eyes, Willow was everything I'd sworn to resist. I never dreamed she would join forces with those mischievous imps of mine to teach this cynical warrior just how sweet surrender can be.Bannor the Bold,Lord of Elsinore

3.5 starsThis was a re-read for me, but I had completely forgotten most of the story. The beginning was slow for me, the pace picking up after the "war" started between Bannor, Willow, and Bannor's unruly brood. I didn't like Bannor much; he is a very passive hero, letting his passel of kids walk ...
The book wasn't so bad but i couldn't wait to finally finish reading it. I laughed at places and I liked the end, but the whole books just wasn't my sort of thing.
3 stars. Cute, light-hearted, won't remember it in a week. :)
It's quite enjoyable reading :) I put the end book laughing. From that I give this book four stars ;)
Cute, light and simple to read (took me about three hours). It's a retelling of the Cinderella tale but could have been more developed.
