Warrior's Song by Catherine Coulter - 374 pages
Chandra de Avenell might look like a golden
princess, but she has been raised to fight like a warrior, dreams a warrior's dreams, and
wears a warrior's pride like a suit of armor. She wants to be strong,
independent, and free. She has no use at all for a husband.
Enter the man her father has selected for her. Jerval de Vernon takes
one look at Chandra, and he wants her. After he saves her from a very
bad situation, he sets himself to wooing her - not an easy task.
How does a man convince a woman he coerces into marriage to become a
wife? To give him her loyalty and her trust? Love is something he would
like her to consider as well. But what if the wife has no intention of
cooperating? Does he break her or finally give up on her?
