This is the first Medeiros romance for me. What a great first impression. She is a wonderful storyteller. 

Lord Bannor, the King's warrior, finds himself trapped in a tower fearing for his life and his sanity. The enemy awaits him outside the door. To prove they have chosen the wrong man to do battle with, Bannor the Bold tells his steward, Hollis, he must find a wife to deal with these rebellious offspring! Yes… I said offspring. 

Instead of coming home with a frumpy, dumpy maidservant type so his Lord would not be tempted to sire any more children, Hollis brings home a Madonna type beauty named Willow. The problem is Lord Bannor is not happy having a beauty for a wife, and doesn't want to keep her. Willow, thinking she was wanted for her self, is not happy becoming an instant mother, yet refuses to go back to the family that had mistreated her.  So what does this mean? War! And the children are the troops. 

Oh, my goodness, what a treat! When you read this passionate romance you will take to these characters. You will laugh, you will cry, you will have to react to this charming romance. 

A medieval hoot. A must read!
